Safest Places to Travel Solo as a Woman

There are countless places around the world that are safe for solo female travelers. Here are some that are considered the safest for your next adventure.

These days, we can go nearly anywhere in the world – from the dense jungles of South America to the frozen landscape of Greenland. However, as a woman who travels solo, I often find myself wondering how many precautions I should take during my travels. There will always be some places that are safer than others. It’s important to do your research ahead of time so you know how to prepare.

Keep in mind that you should always take the regular precautions when traveling anywhere. Whether that is investing in a secure day bag or making a copy of your passport to keep in the bottom of the bag you leave at your accommodation. Be aware of neighborhoods in cities you’re visiting that might not be the safest and stay away, especially at night. Be alert, but enjoy yourself. You’re seeing the world on your own! And that’s amazing.
