Solo Female Destinations - Where Did I Go

Ladies, go and travel alone! Sometimes it feels scary but at the end, it can be so rewarding! Throughout the years, I've travelled to many destinations alone and had some great experiences and unforgettable moments on the road. With this list of destinations, I want to encourage you to leave the fear behind and take as many solo trips as you like!

Solo Female Destinations - Where Did I Go

Solo Female Destinations - Where Did I Go

Let's see how it all started and where did I go:

Basel, Switzerland

Well, before I start with other destinations, I want to mention Switzerland. Yes, I live in Switzerland now, but before that I had been living in Slovenia for 26 years. Since my grandparents live in Switzerland, I started pretty early with solo trips from Slovenia to Switzerland. Not sure, I think I was 14 or 15 years old... I took a night train and arrived in Basel early in the morning. I think my wanderlust and my wish to travel solo must have started with this.

London, UK

When I was 17 or 18 (can't remember), I travelled alone to London. I really wanted to visit the city! First, it was a bit challenging, but it all went good and I've shown to my parents and most importantly to myself, that I'm able to travel alone.

Oslo & Bergen & Geirangerfjord, Norway

After spending 6 months studying in Liverpool, UK, I was independent enough to explore some other parts of Europe too. I decided to visit Norway. I was sick of waiting for others to decide whether they want to join me or not. I knew, I want to do it, so I just booked a flight ticket. Travelling around Norway was amazing, easy and so rewarding. I met some people in Bergen and then also on the cruise to the lovely Geirangerfjord. Interesting talks, for sure. It was so damn expensive for me at that time - I was a student without money. 

Bangkok, Thailand

One of the longest trips I took alone was 1 month in Asia - I flew to Thailand, then to Vietnam, followed by Singapore and Malaysia. I remember, I was scared travelling by myself for such a long time. And yes, I was already in a relationship with Jerry but it didn't stop me to go and travel the world. I managed it all well, met amazing people along the way and had the time of my life. I never wrote a blog post about it but who knows, maybe I'll do it one day.

When I arrived in Hanoi, I spent a couple of days in this nice but chaotic city, met a friendly girl from the US and went on some trips outside of Hanoi - the Sapa trekking, the Halong Bay cruise etc. Travelling alone was easy. After Hanoi I travelled all the way to the South of Vietnam, with some stops on the way. Vietnam is a great country for solo female travellers, for sure. I wrote a blog post about 14 days in Vietnam - have a look.

The next stop was Singapore. I actually visited a girl from Slovenia, who studied in Singapore at that time. It was a great feeling to talk to a person one knows and I could spent a couple of days at her flat. During the day, I walked alone around the city and it didn't last long, when I met some other girls from Malaysia and Japan, so the time alone was over :)

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Malaysia was somehow the toughest stop on this 1 month trip. I arrived to Kuala Lumpur very late in the evening, had to walk all alone to my hostel (which was btw. not in the most touristic part of the city) and once I arrived, I was given a room with a broken ceiling fan. Outside was so humid that I didn't want to have my window open. Besides that, in front of my room a couple was fighting very loud, so the days in Kuala Lumpur didn't start very pleasant. Also, the next days, it was raining all day long, I went for a long walk around the city and suddenly my flip flop broke. I was in the middle of nowhere and had to stop a taxi to pick me up. I even didn't have the money to pay, but somehow the taxi driver offered me a drive for free. So yes, not the best memories of Kuala Lumpur but still I managed to explore a lot. Then I headed back to Bangkok, spent again a few days there and then my solo trip was over.

Como, Italy

I just wanted to go somewhere. So I did :) Lake Como in Italy was a great destination to explore and enjoy some ME time. Sometimes ME time is so important. Go for it!

Freiburg & Hohenzollern Castle, Germany

Occasionally, I decided to go on a road trip by myself, so one of "these" trips were visiting Freiburg and a few months later the Hohenzollern castle. That felt so good! Turning the music on, driving and thinking about life. A bit of exploring, sleeping over and then going home. Recommended! :)

Birmingham, UK

Another solo trip was Birmingham. Actually, I first went back to Liverpool to see how the city I used to study in, has changed over the years. Afterwards I drove to Birmingham and enjoyed some time there. Well, it was also the trip, where I experienced my worst time in a hostel with drunken people.

Sri Lanka

It was not a completely solo trip but partly. I flew alone to Sri Lanka and took a taxi to the hostel, located in the southern part of the island. My friend was waiting for me there and we spent a couple of days together. While she was surfing during the day, I explore some cities nearby. I also travelled alone from Ella (central Sri Lanka) back to Colombo and took my plane from there. It is also an example of a trip, which wouldn't happen, if my friend or I wouldn't want to travel partly alone. I'm glad I did it! Here is an outline of my travel itinerary.

Porto & Coimbra, Portugal

A few years ago, my wanderlust took me to Portugal. I wanted to explore Porto and the student city called Coimbra. Luckily, I had some friends and relatives to contact when travelling around the country. It was a great combination of having some ME time and meeting a friend from my student years in Liverpool as well as my cousin! Wanna read more? Head to this blog post.

Budapest, Hungary

I've heard so many nice things of Budapest that I finally decided to visit the city. It's a shame I haven't visited Budapest all the years I've lived in Slovenia - the neighbor country. The capital of Hungry has so much to offer, I hope I can revisit it one day. And yes, totally suitable for solo female travel. Here is the blog post about my time in Budapest.

Riga, Latvia

Another great solo female destination is Riga! There is so much to see and the city is full of tourists. I felt safe but I wish I could speak some Latvian or Russian, so people would understand me better. Apart from that, everything was great. If you have a chance to choose, pick a hotel in the old town of the city. In my opinion, it's the most interesting area to walk around with lots of great cafes, perfect for a solo female traveller. Since my hotel was in the new part of Riga, I had to walk every day about 15 - 20 min to the old town. But hey, read more about it in this blog post.

Puerto Rico

A bit similar to Sri Lanka - I haven't travelled alone around Puerto Rico, no, but I travelled alone from Zurich via Frankfurt to our hotel in Puerto Rico. It was a long journey until I finally arrived to the hotel and reunited with my friends but I was so glad I decided to come. Why I'm mentioning it here - I see situations when someone says - Oh I can't come these dates, so I won't go. No, I will not travel alone. Don't be afraid to say to your friends - hey, I'm coming too but I can only travel a few days later. You will manage the trip and meet your friends there!

Turkey, Italy, Austria, Poland, Sweden, Dubai

Something similar happened with the destinations below. I travelled to these countries alone, met a friend there and in the next days we explored the cities together. Once again, don't be afraid to do so!

Minsk, Belarus

Then, I travelled alone to Minsk. I thought, why not checking out Belarus! No one else had time to join, so I booked the ticket and flew to Minsk. I must say, it was the first time after a loooong period, that I felt a bit insecure and didn't know what to expect. Travelling around was not as easy as elsewhere in Europe but also not impossible. And yes, some people were staring at me and even asked me, why I'm walking around all alone, but hey, WHY NOT. For me, it was important to see the stage of development of Minsk and to broaden my horizon. I'm happy I did it! And yes, I felt safe. Stay tuned for the blog post.

Kiev, Ukraine

First of all - I encourage you to visit Kiev. I really really liked that city! So many young people, so many parks, great coffee, lots of cute shops and the food was amazing. I'm glad I decided to visit Kiev. Yes, I went alone but I felt safe and I wasn't the only tourist there, not at all! Make sure to check out my blog post.

Ah, I have so many nice memories when I think of Malta. Although my time was limited, I have visited many places such as Valetta, Marsaxklokk, the Popeye Village, Mdina, the Dingli Cliffs and St. Julians. Travelling around the country was pretty easy - I usually took a bus to the next city or paid for a taxi. I felt safe travelling alone in Malta, no problems at all. People are nice and open, so Malta makes it a great destination for solo female travelling. You can read more about my trip here.

Also a few words about travelling solo as a female to Slovenia. As you might know, this is my home country. I often travel from Switzerland to Slovenia by a night bus, night train or plane. Walking around Slovenia alone is more than S.A.F.E. In all the years I've lived in Slovenia, I don't know remember a story, someone was robbed or rapped or whatsoever. It is a very safe country and you can find the country on many lists when presenting "the safest countries in Europe". So girls, go & explore Slovenia!

After so many solo trips I completely lost the fear of travelling alone. I think, I wouldn't have a problem travelling alone to Africa, South America or elsewhere. Of course, some caution is always recommended but the most important, trust your instinct, be attentive, have respect and don't walk alone at night.


There are so many women out there, who travel alone for years, so there is no reason why you shouldn't try it too! ENJOY.

    I also believed, traveling alone is one of the best investments you can make for yourself. Solo traveling gives you the freedom to experiment. And the destinations you mentioned here, are definitely the right ones. No doubt! I have never been to Malta. This place was in my bucket list. I enjoyed your writing. �
    This is a similar article written by GAFFL, where they mentioned a few of the countries that are known to be some of the safest destinations for solo travelers:
    Very engaging post as yours. It’d be awesome if you check out & let me know your thoughts about it. Looking forward to your feedback.

    I want to say a big thanks to Dr. Okosisi for helping me to win the lottery. I won ($1,000,000.00)

    My heart was filled with Joy and happiness when I won the lottery. All thanks goes to Dr Okosisi for his good work he did for me that made me win the lottery. It has been hard for me to earn a living over the years of hard labor and suffering. I always pray to God to help me find a way to hit the lottery, because that was all I put my hope on. I always play the lottery daily, buy different lottery tickets, pay for online tips and others, but all was in vain, no good result, until one day I found this great man Dr Okosisi. On the internet, he is a magic voodoo Doctor, who helps to cast the lottery spell, as was described in the article. I contacted him too because I want to hit the lottery. Dr. Okosis helped me to cast the spell, and behold I won ONE MILLION DOLLARS. Truly you are the best and your spell is genuine and costs no harm. I got my bills paid and my debt cleared. I am making this known to every one of you who have been trying all day to win the lottery, believe me this is the only way to win the lottery with a better price, this is the real contact we all have been searching for. Contact him now. WhatsApp number: +1 (901) 235-9551 Email:

    I was really stressed by Acid reflux issues with my newborn and had consulted Chief Dr Lucky. He gave us a thorough consultation and the medicines were equally effective. In a couple of weeks there was big improvement in my son and we are very pleased with the progress. We cannot thank Chief Dr Lucky enough. Highly recommended.
