For a quirky Halloween party, revellers may wish to grab a ghoulish costume and join the Halloween street parties that take place in one of America’s most haunted cities, New Orleans, USA. With its iconic party atmosphere, there is no better place to meet a singleton at a spooky soirée!
While traditionally regarded as the city of love, Paris is home to numerous locations that are perfect for exploring with a fellow lone traveller at Halloween. Culture vultures should head for an autumnal walk in the famous Père Lachaise Cemetery by twilight, where visitors can pay homage to the graves of hundreds of writers, artists and politicians, or even take a more frightening venture underground, in the chilling Catacombs of Paris.
For travellers who have no immediate travel plans of their own but still want someone to enjoy festivities with this Halloween, TourBar members can choose to register as a Guide to tour fellow solo travellers from around the globe on a mysterious ghost walk in their home city. In London, singletons can celebrate Halloween well into the witching hour at London’s Koko nightclub, which will be throwing a spectacular Halloween Party this October, featuring eerie performances by dance troupes and special guests.
