— If you’re travelling alone, don’t publicize it. You may even want to wear a ring (if you’re not already married) to deter unwanted attention, according to GoOverseas.com.
— Be conscious about how women dress. More conservative or traditional countries expect females to cover up certain body parts — even if you’re a foreigner.
— Have handy emergency phone numbers in the country you’re visiting. That includes knowing the local 911 and embassy contacts.
— When checking into your hotel, make it during the day, WomanBizLife.com suggests. That way you can familiarize yourself with the area and the security of the building and your room.
— While cat-calling may be common on the streets, if you feel particularly threatened, it might be worth hailing a cab instead of walking. In addition, take advantage of areas and transportation set aside only for women.
Please take extra precaution to the solo-girls travelling out there.
