Meeting friends while traveling can help to make your trip more memorable, Here are some tips on how to make friends on your next adventure:


Social Apps

Use social apps to meet new people. Today, social media is a great way to meet people around the world. Apps like Bumble, Meetup, Eatwith and FliptheTrip will help you meet people along your journey. You can also find friends by joining Facebook Travel Groups to find people near you.


Local Hangouts

Visit local hangouts. This is where you’ll get to fully immerse yourself in the local culture and enjoy their routines.



Stay in hostels. Hostels are usually an excellent way to meet new people. The lounge areas are typically filled with people who may be looking for someone to hang with and try new activities. In hostels, you’ll be surrounded by people with whom you’re not familiar, so it would be odd not to start a conversation with them.


Be Open

Be open to new experiences. You can strike up a conversation with someone during your trip, and you may find you have something in common or you have the same destination.


Walking Tours

Take part in walking tours. This is another excellent way to meet other tourists while learning about the destination. You can make plans to meet up with them after the tour and hang out and familiarize yourself with them.



Most importantly, smile and be approachable while trying to make friends. A smile goes a long way.
