What’s the best city to travel to when you’re single? According to global dating app, Tinder, these ten cities have the most singles dropping in to swipe.
There’s nothing quite like an app-facilitated romantic encounter in a foreign city. At Here Mag, we’re all about helping you expand your dating horizons, and if you’re looking for an excuse to let loose in another city, have we got a list for you.
According to Tinder, these are the cities where the highest number of people are “Passporting”—this means app users are changing their location to swipe in another city that they’re not currently present in (without the Passport feature, you can typically only swipe within a 50 mile radius of your current location). It’s a particularly popular feature for people who are just about to embark on a trip to match with local people in the city they’re traveling to.
Whether you’re looking for love with a fellow solo traveler or simply a good wine bar recommendation from a local hottie, these are the cities where single travelers certainly won’t be alone.
They say it’s the city that never sleeps, but it’s also full of hot singles to sleep with. Find an intimate wine bar to meet your match (or many), and let the hours pass into the wee hours of the morn with your newfound fling.
We’d never say no to a rendezvous with a mysterious Brit. How cheeky! Keep it casual with dinner at a neighborhood Indian restaurant (London has some of the best) and then split some sticky toffee pudding at a nearby pub.
In a city like Tokyo, there’s no need to get lost in translation when you could be getting lost in the depths of a mutual right swipe’s eyes. Stick to the energetic streets of Shinjuku or Roppongi, and you’ll be lady-and-the-tramping abura soba noodles with your new beau in no time.
The City of Love still stands strong amongst global competitors. Wear a beret. Walk along Canal St. Martin with a single rose in your shirt pocket. If you’re going to travel to Paris as a single person, you might as well lean into it, and if you fail to find love at least there are baguettes.
Just picture it: The sun is setting over the beautiful Humayun Tomb. Your new beau helps you climb into an autorickshaw on your way to a nearby flame-grilled kebab spot followed by a traditional Indian sweet like jalebis (deep fried flour dipped in simple syrup and saffron). If you don’t act on this fantasy, we will!
From surfers in Venice to the Hollywood hipsters seeking refuge in the hills of Los Feliz, there’s something for everyone in Los Angeles—just make sure your potential match is near the area you’ll be staying in LA. Crosstown traffic can be a nightmare, and probably isn’t worth a first-time date in a new city you should be closely exploring for yourself.
Samba nightclubs were practically made for steamy Tinder matches. If you’re into less talking, more dancing, São Paulo is the city for you. Stay out all night and then stroll through one of the city’s famous markets for breakfast in the morning.
If you struggle with breaking the ice, Bangkok has a great cocktail scene that can help you ease into any interaction with a stranger. Fortunately, swiping and imbibing go very well together.
You’ll need to find someone to keep you warm in this Nordic city. Fortunately, there’s plenty to go around. We suggest a stroll through the Fotografiska museum and an afternoon fika to energize the spark.
It’s hard to believe you’ll have time to indulge your app-sleuthing in a place as exciting as Mexico City, but with all the margs, street tacos, and Frida Khalo to absorb it’s understandable you’d want to find someone with whom to share those experiences. !Mucho calor!
