  • Ensure that you don't travel very heavy as you have to lug your bags yourself.

  • Hotels in remote locations are not suitable for solo woman travelers as they are more appropriate for couples. Ideally, it is advised to stay in places that get a lot of foot traffic.

  • It is recommended to aim for well trafficked street with neighborhood restaurants. Affluent residential areas should have more reliable modes of transport.

  • It is better to follow safety rules and exercise caution when mingling with new acquaintances. For instance, it is wise to inform the hotel front desk while going out and also let them know when to expect you back.

  • Cruises with assigned dinner seating and organized excursions can be chosen as they offer opportunities to meet people and are safer than going off on your own alone.

  • Females are often perceived as easier targets than men by thieves all over the world. It is advised to avoid deserted streets after dark. Carrying a small flashlight should come in handy. Also stay alert in crowded areas such as bus stations or during street celebrations.

  • Clothing that is fashionable and appropriate in the US may be construed as provocative in any other culture or country. It is better to leave the revealing clothing back home and follow the local dress code.

  • A women traveling alone should certainly carry enough money to get out of a tight spot.

If she prefers, she can even take a course in self defense before she embarks on travel.
