The safest destinations for female travelers

Ukraine is gradually moving towards making every female traveler feel protected. Not long ago, separate women's compartments appeared, and this is a step towards success. However, there are countries that have already become a model for traveling alone. They have low crime and violence rates, equality between men and women, and a well-developed law enforcement system. So now we will tell you where you can safely travel alone.

According to the latest data from the booking.com platform, 84% of solo tourists around the world are women. And Google data shows that 55% of "individual tours" searches come from them. Thus, Bounce experts conducted a study based on various criteria: safety, gender gap, etc. As a result, they formed a rating that included 15 countries.

Spain

Yes, this region is recognized as the best place to travel. The country is actively working to protect and support women's rights. In addition, it is an amazing country with a rich variety of attractions - the Sagrada Familia, the Alhambra, the Parc Güell, the Aqueduct in Segovia, etc.

Norway

Took the second place in the ranking. Financial accessibility for women, no discrimination, and the title of the happiest country in the world. This is already enough to go there. But keep in mind that, in addition to all of the above, there is simply breathtaking nature. If you choose the right time to travel, you can even see the northern lights. In short, the girls are a paradise. In addition, the Norwegians are friendly and welcoming to foreigners, and almost every resident knows English.

Netherlands

A country of free people with strict laws. Cannabis and prostitution are legalized here, but local ladies say they feel comfortable. In addition, the Netherlands has the lowest number of murder victims among the female population. It also has the highest percentage of women who walk safely at night (83%) and the second largest gender gap in the world. Therefore, the area attracts tourists not only for its picturesque villages and tulip fields, but also for its tranquility.

Ireland

In 2022, the island country scored 7.88 points on a 10-point scale and took first place. Today, the list has been slightly updated, but the country remains in the top 5. This is because local laws are on the side of female travelers and protect them not only from violence but also from negative public attitudes.

Austria

Austria boasts a relatively low level of gender inequality and a high percentage of girls who feel safe. Even if they return home at night.

Slovenia

In recent years, the country has achieved excellent results in terms of women's safety. Various surveys show that 85% of tourists are not afraid to come here. They wander around the cities, explore nature and do not look back at every rustle.

Switzerland

Thanks to strict measures and increased public awareness, the population managed to "exhale". Today, the country is one of the first in terms of low violence. So when you come here, you can relax a little. It is interesting that different languages are spoken in the regions of Switzerland: German in Zurich, French in Geneva, and Italian in Ticino. So it's easy to feel as if you've visited several countries at once.

Belgium

Belgians also follow high security standards. The authorities are trying to do everything possible to ensure that laws are taken seriously. In addition, gender equality is constantly being strengthened there. This helps to create an environment where women have more opportunities and are protected from discrimination.

Portugal

The country guarantees protection for girls. Local legislation protects them from sexual and domestic violence. Of course, in some places there is a risk of crime. Therefore, in certain areas, tourists are advised to keep a close eye on their personal belongings.

Sweden

If someone violates someone else's borders, they will be punished. In Sweden, they are not used to joking with those who brazenly invade someone's personal space. It is also common here to stay in a hotel where only women live.

Germany

In general, the state is not considered an ideal example of law enforcement. The country is trying to fight domestic tyranny, but so far the situation is rather disappointing. However, travelers are told not to be afraid - their rights are safe. Munich, the heart of Bavaria, is especially recommended.

Japan

It is one of the ten safest countries according to the Global Peace Index. It has an extremely low crime and conflict rate. You can also choose housing for women only, as well as subway cars. In Japan, people are in no hurry to get married, so they have normalized living alone as much as possible. This is another reason why people come here to travel.

Poland

In 2022, more than a million Ukrainian refugees lived in our friendly neighboring country. Fortunately, this country is also recognized as one of the safest in Europe.

Great Britain

England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are considered to be a great option for travel. Crimes such as armed attacks are rare. However, large cities (London, Manchester, or Liverpool) can be a source of unpleasant surprises.
