The 10 Safest (and Coolest) Cities for Women to Travel Alone

ADVERTISEMENT

It can be incredibly dangerous for a woman to travel alone. Every year we hear news about sexual assaults on women who have been vacationing. It’s not only the physical attacks that make traveling alone as a female dangerous. Some places will try and take advantage of the lone traveler, charging them more money than other people. Hotel room theft and pickpocketing are also easier if the person is alone.

There are many places in the world where it may be unsafe for a woman to travel alone. Consider all the aspects of the trip – Will you be walking alone at night? Will you have a tour guide or be exploring the city on your own? Do you have friends or family there that can provide safety when you need it?

We came up with a list of 10 cities where women should be safe travelling alone. Anyone traveling to a new city should be knowledgeable about the dangers and how to get help if they need it. To choose the cities, we looked at the rights and wages of women in the particular countries, along with crimes against women statistics.

Here are our top picks for cities to visit if you are a lone female traveler.

1. Copenhagen, Denmark

Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark and is its largest city with almost two million people in its metropolitan area. This busy city sports beautiful architecture and renowned shopping. Be sure to see the goddess Gefjun fountain, which tells the mythological story of how Denmark was created. Stop by at night, where the fountain lights up with a blue glow, alluding to the magic in the Norse religious history.
