Is Solo Travel Safe for Women?

Yes, it can be safe to travel as a woman -- even alone, but you can’t be naïve about it. If you want to be safe, there are four major things to consider before going anywhere: 1. Where are you traveling, and what do you know about the place? 2. What are you doing there? 3. Do you attract attention / do you stick out? 4. Can you get help from authorities if you need it?
