5. Personal safety is always paramount, and hence women must carry defense mechanism with themselves, for example, a pepper spray or personal safety alarms.

6. Keep your money at different and unexpected places rather than keeping all your money in one place

7. Solo travelers must try to blend in the with the culture of the destination. Do not try to gage the attention by wearing scant clothes or talking strangely. Respect their cultures and seek to maintain the decorum.

8. You must never leave home unprepared. Always do your homework before visiting a place. Try to gain as much information as you can about the place.

9. Learn to say no to people. Always trust your instincts, if you do not get positive vibes from anyone, then don’t go with them. Prevention is better than cure, so always maintain distance from such people.
