Compare the Market has released its list of the 10 most introvert-friendly travel destinations in the world.
With dense pockets of populations appearing across the entire atlas, some of the most remote regions in the world are becoming popular tourist attractions.
Destinations that were once hot spots for solitude seekers are now thriving travel sites for wider fields of travellers, much to the dismay of the prior.
Outside of living beneath a rock like SpongeBob SquarePants’ Patrick Star, joining the Inuit people in remote Canada, or jumping off the grid completely, encountering large populations of people comes with the territory of modern-day travel.
This is the hard reality of travelling in a world with a population of more than seven billion people.
Frequent changes in travel trends also requires regularly re-evaluating what the world has to offer for introverts: a class of traveller that values place, silence and contemplation.
In putting together its top 10, Compare the Market considered four factors: the size of a nation’s population (the lower the better), its number of intimate B&Bs and guesthouses, a nation’s concentration of parks, and the cost of meals.
Lower values for population and lower costs for meals were awarded favourably, while a greater number of available B&Bs and intimate accommodations, as well as a higher concentration of parks, were also welcomed.
