10 of the Safest Countries in the World for Solo Female Travellers


Across the world, travelling solo is a challenge. Even more so if you’re a woman. Every woman in her 20s and 30s (and later) wants to step out into the world and experience it first hand. But safety and security prove to be daunting obstacles.

However much we wish that the whole world would be a safe place for women, it is not so and won’t be for some time to come. But that doesn’t mean that a woman shouldn’t travel alone. Sadly, travelling alone does come with its own set of restrictions. It may go against every instinct in your body, but it is safest for women to follow the local dressing convention and mannerisms when visiting a conservative culture, but that shouldn’t stop you from exploring any region completely different from yours. Yes, there are some countries which should be avoided altogether because of their dismal record in women’s safety, and we hope that changes soon, but there is good news at hand.

We bring to you 10 such countries which are relatively safe and absolutely gorgeous. Plan ahead, stay safe, and explore away to your wandering soul’s content.
