Here are some of the places in Asia that are considered the top on the list of vacation spots that every artsy single woman must book a holiday to:
Istanbul is a city exploding with both ancient and modern art, culture, design, and fashion, which is why it’s one of the best vacation spots for single women who are history buffs. It is said that it is in Istanbul where Asia and Europe collide, since it’s the only city in the world that sits on both continents.
Its history and breathtaking marvels from the Roman to the Byzantine eras will surely keep every artsy woman occupied during her stay in this gleaming city. Just the myriad of mosques and churches in Istanbul is enough to make it one of the best vacation spots for single women who love art and culture. What’s more, added attractions like the historic Hagia Sophia, breathtaking Blue Mosque (Sultan Ahmet Camii), Galata Bridge, Miniaturk Park, The Grand and Egyptian Bazaars, the different festivals that happen all year round, 5th century Theodosius City Walls, Topkapi Palace, Maiden’s tower, the famous Turkish Baths, and many more definitely make Istanbul number one on our list of the best vacation spots.
China by itself is considered one of the best vacation spots for single women since it has a lot of natural wonders and it’s also generally safe for women travelling alone. But what really made it one of the best vacation spots for single women who love art and culture is its glorious history and magnificent traditions. The Chinese culture is really one of the wealthiest and oldest in the world, and going to China for a first-hand experience with this vibrant culture will surely make any artsy wanderlust’s holiday far from being dull and colorless.
When in Beijing, be sure to visit the Great Wall Section, Forbidden City, The Hall of Preserving Harmony, Summer Palace, The Silk Market (for the best silk cloth that women will surely love), National Museum of China, Temple of Heaven, Liulichang Cultural Street, Ming Tombs, Beijing Ancient Observatory, Tanzhe Temple, and many, many more must-see places (that are too many to mention).
The Taj Mahal, which is considered one of the New 7 Wonders of the World, is not the only reason why you should go to India. India is considered one of the best vacation spots for single women who love art and culture because it does not only boast of mountains, beaches, and a wide variety of cultural masterpieces but also because it’s safe to roam around the place and it’s very budget-friendly.
Any artsy wanderlust will have a great time with India’s amalgamation of several cultures. In India, you will be able to visit and see grand palaces (which are totally different from the usual palaces that we’ve been used to seeing in old European cities) and temples and architectural wonders of the ancient civilization like City Palace in Rajasthan, the Himalayas, Lotus Temple in Delhi, Ajanta Ellora Caves, and the temples of Khajuraho in South India.
