See the World with Just You
A holiday in the heart of Myanmar, exploring Japan or India, soaking up the atmosphere of a Verona Opera Experience and a gastronomic retreat in Bordeaux make up some of the escorted yours that Just You, the UK-based single traveller specialist, recently launched.
Just You offers great value holidays to 56 countries on six continents, which include all local transfers, a room to their own for each traveller with no single supplement and a wide range of included excursions.
Colin Wilson, Group Sales Director, Just You said, “At Just You we take our intrepid travellers to countries across both Hemispheres, be it a 12-day adventure through the very heart of Myanmar, relaxing beside the idyllic Lake Como in Italy, seeing the ‘lost city’ of Machu Picchu in Peru or immersing yourself in the history of Turkey with tours of Istanbul, Troy and Ephesus.
“Our holidays aren't just for single people, they're for anyone who wants to travel solo. So if you want to experience a new destination in good company or feel it's time to do something that's just for you and you don't want to travel with your partner or friend, a Just You holiday will be perfect’
Just You’s European range of holidays are highlighted by their Italy collection which includes a Venetian river cruise, a walking vacation in Tuscany and visits to the cities of Bologna. Florence, Venice, Spoleto, Orvieto and Rome.
Island-hopping across the Adriatic sea is the best way to experience all that Croatia has to offer with the eight day Croatian Coastal Explorer, during the cruise you will discover chic towns, sample the local food and win and enjoy the magnificent views.
Further afield is Myanmar and the Road to Mandalay, a 12-day adventure through the unspoilt country of Burma, with incredible experiences, such as slipping off the tourist trail to mingle with the locals on market day, stepping inside real homes and gaining a unique insight into monastic life. One spectacle not to be missed is the legendary Shwedagon Pagoda at sunset.
Other incredible experiences on offer is Wild Borneo, a 12-day flora and fauna exploration of the rainforests of Asia’s largest island; see the ‘Big Five’ in the Kruger National Park in the 12-day Experience South Africa vacation and a journey through Namibia, a county known as a photographer’s paradise.
Travelling on your own can be daunting, however it is definitely worth it as Just You customer Jaya Shah explains, “When I made the decision to go on holiday on my own I had no idea where to start. I found Just You and saw the destinations on offer. I booked a holiday there and then before I got ‘cold feet’. Of course, I was a bit nervous and apprehensive to start with; these feelings quickly disappeared as soon as I met up with the Just You Tour Manager and my fellow travellers.
“The Tour Manager is with you throughout the holiday, all you do is sit back, relax and enjoy yourself. One of the highlights is that you travel with a group of people with a varied age range and life experiences. It is up to you how you spend your time, you can either stay with the group or join in all the included excursions or you can explore on your own,” commented Jaya.
When asked if she had any advice for people looking to head off on their own, Jaya said, “I would say just go for it, single travel is a pleasure, there is nothing to worry about and you will have lots of fun along the way. In fact, I have just one warning – travelling with Just You is addictive!”
For those looking to see more of the USA, how about travelling along the famed Route 66, discovering the people, places, and gas stations. The 16-day adventure begins in Chicago and along the route takes in sightseeing tours of St Louis, St Charles, Springfield, Oklahoma, and Los Angeles.
Music is a central focus for much of North America with Just You’s America’s Heart & Soul holiday taking in the best that is on offer, from the blues of Chicago to the Jazz of New Orleans. The highlight of the 11-day trip has to be a visit to Graceland, the former home of Elvis, and the chance to join with the gospel singers in a Memphis church service.
