Traveling solo is one of THE best experiences ever and I highly recommend it. One of the biggest issues perceived by those who want to try it but are scared to, is that traveling alone as a female is a dangerous thing to do. Let me assure it’s not. No more than any woman walking around by herself when not on holiday. Apply some common sense, obey the laws and unwritten rules of the destination and you are no more at risk than if you travel with someone else. If you want to give solo travel a go, but are still a bit tentative, I recommend these as safe cities for women to travel to alone.
1. As Safe as a Mermaid in Copenhagen, Denmark
Home to the Tivoli Gardens amusement park, Christiansborg Palace and Frederik's Church, the capital of Denmark is one of the safest cities for women to travel alone to in Scandinavia. It's a great place to come for shopping and sightseeing. Copenhagen's beautiful architecture, cultural treasures and manifold tourist attractions make this 2,000,000-strong place one of the favorite city break destinations in Europe. From its goddess Gefjun fountain that depicts the mythology of Denmark's creation and magic within Norse religion to the cute statue of Hans Christian Andersen's Little Mermaid, Denmark is an enchanting place where women can feel safe.
