Travelling for pleasure has become a popular global leisure activity, and the number of international tourists reached the 1 billion mark in 2012. People tend to travel with families, friends or in groups, but travelling alone is no longer limited to adventurous young men. Women, of all age groups, too have taken to travel alone, joining up – as they like – with other tourists and travellers they meet on the road. The key for women travellers is to make sure that the places to visit are essentially safe. Ten countries in Asia Pacific have been identified as being the safest for women travelling alone. These places range from the more developed countries – such as Singapore, New Zealand, Japan and Australia, to the more exotic countries – such as Mongolia and Kazakhstan. The infographics below also provides useful safety advice to women travellers.
