While there are many things that can be done to stay safe on the road as a solo female traveler no matter where you are, many people want to know if certain destinations are safer than others. Of course! Some places are much more traveler friendly especially for women. Here are some of my favorites.
Iceland: This country has become a popular destination for many travelers and with good reason. The city of Reykjavik is known to have a great music scene and nightlife. With something always going on, it’s easy to go out and make new friends. Not only that, but Iceland has some of the most stunning natural beauty in the world including glaciers and the infamous Blue Lagoon.
Scandanavia: This includes the countries of Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. While it can be a little chilly, these countries are filled with beautiful architecture. Norway and Denmark have even been ranked as some of the happiest places on earth!
New Zealand: This is the place to go if you’re seeking outdoor adventure. It’s got beaches, fiords, and glaciers all at the tips of your fingertips.
Dubai: This one may surprise you seeing as it’s such a large city. However, Dubai is full of people from a plethora of backgrounds, religions, and nationalities. There’s so much diversity and everyone gets along well so you will fit right in. It’s still important to respect the culture and cover up anywhere other than the beach.
Canada: A country full of breathtaking landscapes and some incredibly fun and happening cities. Canadians are known for being some of the friendliest and you’ll see why quite quickly.
Belgium: One of my favorite countries I’ve traveled to, especially the city of Ghent! You’ll encounter friendly locals who will take you out to some of their favorite pubs and then wake up the next morning and see castles. You can’t go wrong in Belgium, especially with a beer in one hand and chocolate in the other!
Ireland: It would be easy to spend night after night in the pubs of Ireland. The music and the energy is intoxicating, you can’t help but to have fun. I’ve also truly never seen greener grass or breathed fresher air. Keep Ireland at the top of your list!
Bali: With temples, yoga, and beaches you’ll feel relaxed and right at home. It doesn’t hurt that the food and accommodation are incredibly cheap! The culture here is great and with so many travelers being drawn here, you’ll make friends quickly.
Amsterdam: It’s reputation holds true, Amsterdam is a place of happy care-free people. It’s easy to spend the day sitting at cafes or strolling in parks, you’ll never want to leave!
Cruise: These are great with so many organized activities it’s easy to make friends. Not only that, but it’s a stress free way to see many places without having to plan your own itinerary.
This list only names a few of many places to go. No matter where you go just stay smart, be wise, and enjoy yourself! Travel on!
