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? These are all important questions to ask yourself before heading to your destination.
Some would argue that solo traveling is something that everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime. While it may put you out of your comfort zone you may be surprised by how much you like it. After all, without having to accommodate the ideas and opinions of another person, you’ll have the freedom to create your own schedule. While some places are known to be very unsafe, today we’re focusing on the cities that are safe for female solo travelers. To create this list, we looked at the rights and wages of women in particular countries as well as where each country ranked according to the Global Peace Index. Enjoy and savor every moment of your trip but more importantly, be safe.
1. Copenhagen, Denmark
Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark and it is the largest city with almost two million people in its metropolitan area. This busy city sports beautiful architecture and renowned shopping.
Consider checking out 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.
