Best Safe Places To Travel To for Women – Destinations around the world

Let’s face it as much as we would like to travel around every country in the world, there are a number of amazing places which are just out of bounds and not safe for a woman travelling alone, let alone a man travelling by himself. But for each country that is off the solo travel radar, there are loads more that aren’t.

Safe Destinations for Female Travelers

Here’s the best safe places around the world to visit:

Slovenia - LAKE BLED, SLOVENIA - a safe place to visit for Solo Female Travelers


With an area of nearly 8,000 square miles, Slovenia is a delight to the eyes and is one of the prettiest countries in Europe. Because of its population of only two million people it never feels crowded and with mountains, rivers and 46km of coastline to choose from, there is always an area to explore. The crime rate slow making it extremely safe for travellers to visit and really safe to walk around at night. Marvel at the Baroque style architecture in Ljubljana or try adventure sports at picturesque Lake Bled.

Switzerland - GRUYERES, SWITZERLAND - a safe place to visit for Solo Female Travelers


It’s ranked within the top 10 places to live and with simply breathtaking scenery and clean air, there’s more than one reason why. Known for its Swiss chocolate, quality watches and fondue, Switzerland is one of the safest places to visit. It really is as beautiful as it looks in pictures too. Choose Lauterbrunnen for waterfalls and iconic scenery or Lucerne for its stunning lake and Chapel Bridge.

Singapore - a safe place to visit for Solo Female Travelers


With fines for irresponsibly disposing of your chewing gum on the streets, Singapore is guaranteed to be safe. There’s no litter, vitally any crime and no graffiti but if you’re taking medicine into the country, check before you travel as they have very strict guidelines. Visit Sentosa Island for some fun, shop until you drop in Orchard Road or have a close encounter with animals at Singapore zoo on the night safari.

Bhutan - a Safe place to visit


It doesn’t have the highest gross happiness index for nothing. With a good standard of living, psychological well-being, health and culture, the Bhutanese are happy people and visiting the country is like walking into an air of calm with everywhere so peaceful. Explore the charming town of Paro or trek to the majestic Tiger Nest Monastery nearby.

Austria - Salzburg


Not only does this country offer amazing scenery but it’s brimming with stunning architecture too. Austria has so much to offer and with a low crime rate, it’s perfect for the solo traveller. Explore the Alps for some solitude, Vienna for its coffee houses, or visit Salzburg for hills alive with the sound of music.

N.b. These are just my top 5 countries for safety and there are obviously more safe ones out there. As with anywhere with you travel solo, keep your wits about you and be careful at night and you’ll have an amazing time.
