A new report from Airbnb says that Los Angeles is the top place U.S. women are traveling right now.Getty

Solo travel is on the rise — especially among women travelers. An estimated 32 million American women travel alone every year, according to the Travel Industry Association. And a new Global Solo Travel Study conducted by British Airways reports that almost 50% of women around the world have taken a vacation by themselves, while 75% of women are planning a solo trip in the next few years. “Solo travel is continuing to grow in popularity, with research that shows more women are prone to travel alone over men and are more apt to try new things and veer off the beaten path when they get to where they’re going,” says Ali Killam, Consumer Trends Spokesperson at Airbnb.

So where are women going? In honor of International Women’s Day, Airbnb has released its first-ever report on the top places women are traveling right now. This 2019 report was shared exclusively with the Transformative Travel column on Forbes.com.

Airbnb broke the report into two lists: the top 20 places its female guests from the U.S. are traveling and the top 20 places women from around the world are going. The lists were based on bookings by women travelers across Airbnb platforms, from Homes to Experiences.

According to Airbnb, Los Angeles is popular due to its range of experiences. Here, a solo traveler is pictured enjoying Santa Monica beach.Getty

When it comes to destinations for U.S. women, Los Angeles ranks number one. “Los Angeles has been a popular market throughout the years for travelers, especially for those booking with Airbnb,” says Killam, who attributes the city’s popularity to its range of experiences and accommodations in places like the seaside enclave of Venice and the iconic Hollywood Hills. In 2018, Airbnb Experiences also expanded significantly throughout California, offering handcrafted activities led by local experts. “Experiences is creating new economic opportunities for California residents by allowing them to unlock their talents and interests and make money from them,” says Killam.

Paris is at the top of the list for global travelers and second in popularity with U.S. travelers. “Paris is one of those cities that’s on most people’s bucket list or one that people can go to time and time again and never get bored,” says Killam. What has people buzzing about the destination this year, according to Killam: ”The FIFA Women’s World Cup kicks off in France and Paris will be one of the host cities. Plus the Palais Galliera, the Fashion Museum of the City of Paris, will become the first permanent fashion museum in France in 2019 thanks to the support of the House of Chanel.”

In addition to the data on where women are traveling, Airbnb found that solo female travelers are booking twice as many Airbnb Experiences over solo male travelers year over year, as a way to meet locals and fellow travelers, learn new skills, enjoy a meal and partake in unique cultural experiences. “Looking at bookings by solo female travelers, we found that women flying solo are more drawn to modern history and mindful movement with activities like shopping with a fashion anthropologist, learning how to box with a world champion or weaving a tapestry with mindful zen arts,” says Killam.

Coincidentally, Airbnb hosting is also more popular among women — and growing. In the U.S., 55.87% of accommodations are run by women hosts — a growth of 12.40% year over year. Globally, women also represent the majority of hosts in places like Australia (61.33%), Europe (53.8%), Latin America (51.89%) and Asia (50.51%). And the numbers of women hosts are growing globally, too: up 33.32% in Asia, up 27.61% in Latin America, up 24.55% in Australia and up 12.16% in Europe.
