Travelling as a solo woman can be an exciting once-in-a-lifetime adventure if you're aware of health and safety issues, and plan your journey accordingly. Although it sometimes receives bad press in regards to personal safety, South-east Asia, with its rich cultural traditions, is a perfect get-away, either for a short holiday or as part of a longer back-packing odyssey. Bali would have to be my personal favourite, and resorts such as Bliss Sanctuary For Women are great if you're new to travelling alone and are a bit nervous. Where do you think the world's top holiday destinations for women are? What are your personal favourites? What health and safety issues should solo female travellers keep in mind?

Far North Queensland, to get away from it all. Think Port Douglas/Cape Tribulation/Daintree Rainforest area. The Blue Mountains in New South Wales also.
Sounds great! Although there are some gorgeous destinations overseas we also have some awesome spots here in Australia.
Leave a copy of you itinerary with a family or friend back home and contact numbers of any hotels you've checked into. Drop an email home, facebook message or text every now and then to let everyone know all is ok. And most of all, trust your gut feeling - if it doesn't feel safe or right, don't do it.
Great suggestions, Gen. Better safe than sorry.
Japan! A very friendly, clean country to explore. There are many things to do and see and you will definitely enjoy the busy cities and more traditional temples and shrines.

I haven't made it to Japan yet, but it's definitely on my 'to do' list!
Singapore - lots to do, very friendly chatty people and very safe, day or night.
I love Singapore! The safety factor is definitely a drawcard too. There's not many places that I'll wander around alone in the evening, but Singapore is one place that I feel quite comfortable about it.
Changi airport is the best!

Many places are quite safe for solo female travellers if you exercise some basic common sense and don't take outrageous risks. If you're not a party animal and avoid dodgy places at night, most spots in Europe are quite alright. I travel alone regularly and will often stay in YHA backpacker hostels (which have a very good range of spotlessly clean and reputable hostels), as there are also lots of other solo female travellers there from all round the world. Safety in numbers! They have hostels at most popular holiday destinations in Australia and abroad. You can choose from dorm accommodation or get a simple private room.
The current 'black spots' you all know about, so forget going there!

I travelled the world, by myself, from when I was 18-23. I never had a problem anywhere, but was very cautious, & was guided by 'horse sense'.

It was just a big adventure to me to see the sights, listen to the people speak, & eat that country's particular food.

I was very fortunate to do what I did then, &, of course, the world was a much safer place in the '70's!
