The year of the Tiger is set to begin from February 1, 2022, as per the Chinese zodiac. And here we tell you what it means, and the solo trips for women that you can opt for, based on your birth year and animal sign.

If you believe in zodiac signs, you know that the Chinese zodiac is a fun, interesting way to look at your birth charts and destiny. It is said that the sign of the year you were born in may bring you bad luck when it comes again (usually once every 12 years) and is marked by superstitions, religious activities, and more to combat its ill effects.

However, the zodiac can also be an interesting way to understand your personality better. One often finds themselves matching traits with their birth signs and realising that the things based on the sun sign are often true. Travel is another element to look into when reading up on zodiacs.

So, if you’re a solo woman who believes in the zodiac, we’ve (rather unscientifically) curated a list of solo trips for women that you must take in 2022, based on your Chinese zodiac.

This is the year of the king of all beasts, aka the Tiger (and thus, Tiger signs). The Tiger is the third animal in the zodiac cycle and is known for its strength, power, rebellious nature, and dynamic personality, and those born into this zodiac are said to be adventurous, fiery, impulsive, and unpredictable. And because this is your year, you may want to indulge in thrill-seeking experiences that give you a much-needed boost of adrenaline.

The solo trips for women this year should include Dubai if you’re planning on travelling internationally. You can opt for desert safari adventures and ziplining as you indulge in delicious cuisine and rich culture. In India, opt for an adventurous trek or a paragliding session in Bir Billing to pump up the rush.

The Rat

Those born in this sign are known to be diligent, dependable, strong and determined. An agricultural animal, you’re also quite close to nature, and vacations that let you be closer to nature should be what you opt for this year.

So, solo trips for women in the Ox sign should opt for hiking and trekking sojourns. Internationally, explore countries such as Sri Lanka that offer the best of nature, or opt for a relaxing getaway to the Maldives, wherein you can be close to the sea.

Those born into the Rabbit sign are kind, virtuous and artistic, and generally have an appreciation for the finer things in life. That being said, you will definitely love a trip to a place that offers art and architecture, where you can visit museums, galleries and more, and soak in the scenic locales as your mind runs wild creating new things.

So, solo trips for women in the Rabbit sign should include visits to Italy and France, both known for their art and architecture. Paris, of course, is the ultimate romantic destination and may be great for the rabbit sign who loves romance – even if it is self-love. And who knows, you may find someone there! In India, Puducherry is one destination that will offer you such an experience. And a walk around South Mumbai is sure to set the creative juices flowing.

So, for women in this sign looking to go on a solo trip, opt for an international sojourn to Costa Rica or Hawaii, where you will be closer to nature and get to explore adventures. Go on a hike, or opt for challenging treks to get that sense of achievement that you crave. Solo trips for women born into the sign, if you’re looking to travel within India, can include the northern hill stations that offer adventure, challenges and bring you closer to nature.

So, if you’re born into the year of the Horse, ideal solo trips for women will be road trips across the USA. Get experiences such as walking on the glass skywalk in the Grand Canyon, indulging in local culture and cuisine, and satiating your soul with unique experiences that you encounter along the way.
