Most unsafe countries for Women Travelers


Travelling as a world's most liked hobby has always been fun. I love travelling too and have recently returned after travelling to a number of Schengen countries. But I am a ma.

Unfortunately, for women travelers, specially when travelling alone, the world out there is not really safe. A recent survey in the Daily Mail shows that women should be very careful when travelling alone to following destinations:

  1. India
  2. Brazil
  3. Turkey
  4. Thailand
  5. Egypt
  6. Colombia
  7. South Africa
  8. Morocco
  9. Mexico
  10. Kenya



Wonder why India tops the list? Well a recently, a number of female travelers to land of Taj Mahal have been raped. The report says that there is a sexual assault every twenty minute. According to India's National Crime Record Bureau crimes against women have increased by 7.1 per cent since 2010.

Watch the video below for tips for women travelling alone to these destinations:
