[Serious] Recommend tips and countries to visit for solo traveller

First-time solo.
No budget.
No time limit.
No one else but me...
Preferably: Sightseeing like temples/cathedrals/sceneries. Explorations. And food. Don’t mind long walks.

Gimme ideas for a post-ORD trip, please.

Location? Duration? Interesting places?

Would like to ssrr the world before I settle down on studies and working till beyond retirement age...

No dangerous places, please. I want to experience the world, but without the life-endangering part.
No third world country or go there help do hard labor as activities. I’m not a volunteer or activist, I just want to explore the world a bit more.
No driving.

Any general advice or interesting tips to share?
What backpacks do you guys use?
Did you guys have a luggage with you?
What website would you guys recommend to book for hotels/flight?

West coast USA, sometime in northern spring or summer. Phenomenal natural beauty and sightseeing; friendly people; great cities (Vegas! SF! Seattle! Salt Lake! oh and Los Angeles I guess) and amazing food all up and down the west coast.

no budget what does it mean? U have load of $$ to blow? or limited budget?
when U said backpack and luggage it sounded no budget means not much $$.

do U intend to drive?
no dangerous place, what do u mean by that.. war zone naturally unsafe. USA considered safe in your books?

no time limit so U intend to stay as long as VISA allows?
I think most countries max is like 90days.

experience the world.. hmm... USA, EU, east asia (Jp, China etc).. 90 days each.. U have budget for 9mths travel? throw in safer countries of south America like Chile.
kinda hard to experience the world by just visiting a country. SG is a melting pot but i don't think its experience the world.

Means I don’t have a definite budget to stick to lah.
How you link when I asked what type of backpack you guys use and if you guys will bring luggage with not much $$$?? You mean if got high budget means don’t need backpack or luggage?? I’m actually looking at getting a new daily backpack to use. Also wondering since traveling solo, the chance of getting souvenirs might be pretty low, so not sure if a luggage might be needed.

do U intend to drive?
no dangerous place, what do u mean by that.. war zone naturally unsafe. USA considered safe in your books?
No driving.
Yes, majority cities seems pretty safe in USA. I won’t know irl besides listening the news and reading crime statistics and articles. I’m a frog in the well when it comes to traveling abroad, also since it’s my first time traveling solo, I would rather not experience getting robbed to know whether a place is safe or not. Since you guys are pretty experienced in traveling (solo), what are the safer countries that you guys would recommend?

no time limit so U intend to stay as long as VISA allows?
I think most countries max is like 90days.
I’m looking to have an overall experience when traveling to any country. So I don’t think there’s a need to stay in a country till visa max limit. No need to travel so in-depth to visit every single shrine/cave/trail/temple/Sakura garden/mall the country got to offer. Big countries like USA, Europe, mainland China of cos would be split into several visits, but the idea to cover them in a single trip did cross my mind. Will be pushing these big travel plans further down till I’ve got roughly a good grasps of traveling solo. So for now would be traveling to individual parts of big countries and smaller countries.

I wouldn’t just be traveling to a country, but a country at a time, throughout my life. Preferably a few countries before I go study and work, then will plan trips in between by then.

Went before Taipei, not sure if it’s worth to go through the whole of Taiwan to get an overall experience if the rest of Taiwan would be like Taipei.

I see...roughly how long would you think it will take to cover an overall Taiwan then? And a rough budget? What would be worth to visit around Taiwan?

dont drive in USA. Very hard to move.

If not drive, try Korea, Taiwan, Japan.

Those country public transport more well establish
