Solo travel is booming around the world, with men and women choosing to explore a destination in their company. However, not all countries are considered safe for travellers, especially women. So travel blogger Shenaz Treasury took to Instagram to share her personal experience and also listed some places where solo female travelers can go without any danger.
While sharing the post in Portugal, Shenaz wrote: “I am in Portugal right now. As soon as I landed, I met some DMs (from men) telling me how they were duped here. She further shared that “I was harassed and on the verge of being duped in Bordeaux, France A very nice woman came to my rescue” as she listed a few countries where she said women “could be less afraid.”
However, she quickly adds: “Of course, nowhere is there a 100 percent guarantee because it does take one incident, so never be completely oblivious.”
Take a look at the countries that made it to Shenaz’s list:
Switzerland: Describing it as Europe’s safest destination, Shenaz wrote: “Girls don’t need to look over their shoulders.”
Canada: According to a study by Bounce, a travel company, Canada is the eighth safest country for female travelers.
