6 Ways to Enjoy Valentine’s Day if you are Single (Travel Edition)
Valentine’s Day is usually the time of the year that most singles get hysterical when they do not have dates when February 14 hits.

There are a lot of unique ways a self-loving single can enjoy the day such as unique travel experiences, food trips, and culture immersion.
Fall in love with these eight unique experiences this Valentine’s Day.
1. The underrated beauty of Java, Indonesia
Bali is always the first thing that people think of when you say Indonesia. Little do they know that the island of Java has the same beauty as well.
Java is also home to a number of volcanic mountains, clear and pristine waters, and temples to visit and enjoy the view in.
It is perfect for soul searchers that wish to take a short break from work or spend the long weekends in paradise.
Finding your own inner peace is highly possible in this part of Indonesia as well since it’s abundance in nature makes it a go-to spot for wellness enthusiasts.
There are as much of it in Java as there is in Bali so it’s up to you to choose which outdoor scenery suits your chi.

Bangkok has an active nightlife but the fun is actually in the beaches of Phuket, Thailand.
Phuket is actually the go-to if pure nightlife is what you seek. There is also a huge chance you meet new people from different nations as this nightlife spot is very popular for the Westerners as well.
Unlike Bangkok with a number of other things you can do besides partying, Phuket is more suitable for the “drink, dance, party, repeat” culture.
Even athletes who train for Muay Thai fights do not shy away from a night out in Phuket whenever possible
3. Street food at Hawker Center
Since you might be thinking of a traveling for Valentine’s why not travel to Singapore for shopping and food tripping?
The best place for that is the Hawker Center, where the Singaporean government herded it’s street food vendors.

The reason is that their commitment to food and celebrating alone just makes it right for them to be at Hawker Center.

5. Double or nothing in Macau
Disclaimer: Play for the fun and thrill. Do not play in the hopes of becoming rich.
Booking fancy restaurants and buying gifts for a date may cost a lot depending on how you seek to impress.

Macau is the Las Vegas of Asia and for good reason. It’s bright casinos are definitely a more elegant version of the ones you see in Nevada.

If you are looking for a unique way to redefine valentines, then go on an African safari instead and rediscover your connection with animals and nature.
You have to admit that you have watched National Geographic more than once in your life as a child.
What better way than to witness how wildlife actually is than to go on a trip there instead? It’s definitely more interesting than binge watching Animal Planet on Valentine’s
