Traveling is one of the best things you can do in your free time. It allows you to learn more about the world, different countries and cultures. Sure, reading can do that for you too, but nothing really compares to actually going abroad, seeing the sights with your own eyes, talking to people and experiencing the culture. You’d think in 2017 everyone could travel anywhere they wanted, but unfortunately that is not the case. While there are plenty of destinations that are perfectly safe around the world, if you’re a woman and you’re alone there are still some places where it’s just not safe for you to go on your own. So today we’ve decided to talk about 5 safest and 5 most dangerous places for women to travel alone.
Let’s start with safe ones, shall we?
Netherlands is a gorgeous country, and their capital Amsterdam is one of the safest cities in the world. It’s full of vibrant colors, fascinating culture and interesting museums to visit. The architecture here is absolutely gorgeous. Beautiful buildings along the canals look almost unreal, it’s like they popped out of a painting or a fairy tale. Amsterdam is a great destination if you’re alone, because there’s always something to do here, whether you want to dive into the party life, see some touristy sights or just have a relaxing day cycling around the city or chilling in the park.
Have you ever heard anything bad about Iceland on the news? When was even the last time you heard about it on the news? That’s right, probably never. Iceland is one of the safest and most peaceful places on Earth. Its capital, Reykjavik, is actually listed as number 1 on the Global Peace Index, so if you had any doubts before, now you know for sure that it’s very safe. It’s also an absolutely stunning place to visit. It’s the epicenter of Icelandic culture and tourist attractions. If you wanted to see the Blue Lagoon or the Northern Lights – this is the place for you.
Italy is a great place for female solo travelers to visit. You will feel like a queen, after all, Italian men are known for their charm and they seem to always have a whole array of compliments in their arsenal. But the lovely Italian men aren’t the only reason to go to Italy. If you want to see beautiful people, eat some delicious food, see a whole lot of art and experience their culture – Rome is the best city to visit. Who wouldn’t want to see the Pantheon or the Coliseum, or Saint Peter’s Basilica am I right? But also, if you want to shop till you drop, Italy is a great place for that too.
Everyone knows that Scandinavian countries are the safest places for travelers. Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, always attracts a lot of female travelers with its charming architecture, a lively nightlife, and lots of shopping possibilities. It’s also the coolest of the Danish cities, ask anyone and they’ll confirm. Plus, kind of like Amsterdam, it’s very easy to get around and cycling is the preferred mode of transportation here.
