Here are some travel tips to take note of if you’re female and you’re doing it solo:
Read about the culture’s view of women
The country’s culture says a lot about how they treat women, including how they treat foreign women. Whether or not you agree with it, pay attention and respect their culture.
Trust your instincts
We believe in a woman’s gut feel. If there’s a slight hint of discomfort, flee from the situation. No regrets, your safety is more important.
Mind the booze
Never ever get wasted when you’re traveling alone in a country, even if you meet a new friend while you’re there.
Confidence is key
Walk with your back straight and head held high. The way you carry yourself speak volumes and it can make you less of a target.
Join group tours
Traveling solo can get lonely but it doesn’t have to be. Sign up for local tours or even workshops, where you can meet other people who share your passion for travel.
Know the popular scams
Research ahead so you will be more aware of potential scams in your destination. Scams are everywhere no matter where you are in the world, it’s best to read up on them so you will know how to avoid or deal with it.
Make sure belongings are secure
Before venturing out to your travel destination, check if your belongings are secure. Is your luggage sturdy? Are your locks durable? Are your credit cards scam-proof? Is your passport cover or your wallet RFID protected?
Be a little creative
Have a dummy wallet, use an alter ego for when a creepy person comes up, bring a cheap phone for navigating around the city, separate big bills from small bills, put jewelry in an empty lip balm stick.
Enjoy every single moment
Don’t let fear steal your funk. Be alert but don’t assume, not everyone is out to get you. It’s always a matter of balance, of knowing how to have fun but also knowing how to look after yourself.
