From rappelling waterfalls in Vang Vieng to climbing picturesque waterfalls in Luang Prabang, it is such a good idea for solo traveling to visit this unique country and planning ahead. Like many other countries, Laos has some advantages and disadvantages so if you are thinking about going solo in Laos, you are in the right place.

East of Thailand, West of Vietnam, and North of Cambodia Laos is right in the middle of all these popular countries. The country is big and there are only a few popular tourist spots like Luang Prabang, Vang Vieng, and well, Vientiane. People are very welcoming and friendly and humble one of the favorite travel destinations.

If you want to visit Luang Prabang is more about nature and beautiful architecture, but Vang Vieng, on the contrary, is the best place to enjoy the party. Laos is a country of steep, jungle-robed valleys inhabited by resilient communities who live at a refreshingly unhurried pace. Laos is something special a peaceful country in Asia that is landlocked still magically unspoiled clouds above you and clouds below you the nicest people and great French bread.

If you want to enjoy the green colors of the rice fields don’t plan your trip at the end of the dry season, but quite the opposite you can see Kuang Si Waterfall in the best time.

It’s more curiosity and concern for the traveler’s safety than anything else. Most Filipinos are very caring and generally get worried when they see a tourist, especially a female, traveling alone. Whether you realize it or not, these people do care about your safety. They may watch from a distance, but they will not think twice to come to your aid if they think you need it.

So is Philippines a safe place for a solo female traveler Absolutely it is. When you are into Philippines, you are among friends. All you have to do is open up, interact with the locals and not be too judgemental. Having said that, one should always be mindful of his or her surroundings regardless of where one travels.

There are more places to travel solo in the Philippines but an island like El Nido that would be a good choice. The town is even busier than you would expect it’s mean it’s exploded. There are new hotels and restaurants opening every week and it might be worth booking a room before your trip especially in the high season. The canopy walk provides some of the best views on El Nido it gets you in the mood for more adventure.

Pintail island is one of the most beautiful, but also one of the coziest islands on this tour this place is hidden behind a small hole. Just a whole different world from the white sand and blue seas. You can take a trip to Tapik Beach a little hidden gem you can enjoy so much it’s so relaxed here.

One of Asia’s most iconic buildings and the world’s most renowned infinity pool is called Marina Bay Sands Hotel. To visit the pool you must be a guest of the hotel, but you can experience incredible views from the Skypark observation deck or from one of the 57th floor restaurants.

Vietnam is one of the best countries in Asia to travel cheaply, and you can travel with almost with a low budget and no money it’s much cheaper than Singapore. Vietnam has many beautiful tourist attractions, one of them is Hanoi, which is famous for its old city that is always alive. Towards the old city of Hanoi, you can use the express bus from Noi Bai International Airport and tasted Vietnam’s special food, Banh mi, and egg coffee. Vietnam is incredibly safe to travel alone you can travel to many rich areas and the areas of extreme poverty. Going out on a limb, I would say that the tourist areas are, universally, the most dangerous areas for tourists. The dangerous locals who want to steal will go to these areas because that is where they find the largest concentration of tourists.

There are so many places to visit in Myanmar the favorite things to see especially the temples of Bagan a journey by train from Hsipaw and the palace in Mandalay and finally, the Lake Inle to get an impression from all places around of the country and the best activities in Myanmar.

Traveling Brunei as a solo female traveler seemed like a sketchy and risky idea at first. You can make a tour around Brunei and visit the Royal Regala Museum, watching the sunset biking around Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque which is considered to be one of the most beautiful mosques in the Asia Pacific.

Brunei isn’t exactly the first country you think of when traveling across South East Asia. You quickly will realize that it’s not frequently traveled by most tourists but driving in Brunei is full of surprises there are a lot of people that had been before that had a great experience

Brunei is a tiny sultanate located on the shores of the South China Sea and is surrounded by the Malayan federal states of Sabah and Sarawak. Brunei is a land that has almost lost its history while moving into modern times. It is a country that has grown amazingly wealthy since its gas has hissed and its oil has spluttered from deep below the ground.
