Even though women enjoy more freedom nowadays, they are still vulnerable in many ways. Has your family ever looked worried when you told them of your plans to travel solo? Everyone should be able to do whatever they want without company or a security guard, but the sad reality is that if you’re a female, you tend to think twice about doing things unaccompanied. Still, more and more women are taking the chance and going on adventures by themselves. For those who’d like to follow suit, we’ve compiled a list of the safest places women can travel solo.
