There are many places in the world that I’d recommend such a journey; however, women should still keep some basic safety practices in mind and Vietnam is considerd one of the best places for women to travel solo in the world.
Year round women are seeking trips to venture out on their own, away from daily life and the demands of work, family and friends. They want to forget about wearing make-up, truly be themselves and enjoy the experience of a lifetime. While there are travelers who want the support of a small group, some prefer to go it completely alone.
There are many places in the world that I’d recommend such a journey; however, women should still keep some basic safety practices in mind. I always recommend storing your valuables in different places (hotel safe, your pocket, wallet), keeping a copy of your passport in case it’s lost or stolen and using a moneybelt instead of a purse. Plus, simply appearing confident instead of unsure can go a long way in avoiding danger.
I also suggest when women first arrive at their destination that they take a guided walking tour to get acclimated, to learn where things are and to get a feel for the culture. It’s also important to dress appropriately for the country; conservative is always better and ensures you can gain admittance to attractions that may require a standard of dress. One of them is Vietnam country where you can freely explore culture, people and scenery by yourself.
I absolutely love Vietnam and have been there many times. Saigon and Hanoi are both fabulous cities that are safe. Choose a hotel in one of these major hubs and then venture out by day on a bike tour, on a daytrip to see temples, or to visit local museums. You can also take a cooking class, rock climb and try some unusual Vietnam delicacies if you dare!
Other places are Alaska, Iceland, New Zealand, Costa Rica and Panama.
