Oceania and Asia Travel Destinations for Women

Women on the Road

When I was a journalist, I lived in Bangkok for two years, covering Southeast Asia. It was a wonderful platform to visit the entire region and I'd be hard-pressed to decide which country was my favorite - because they all were.

Asia was an easy continent to travel solo as a woman. Most of it is relatively safe, the food is extraordinary and the variety of cultures is immense. No two countries, nor even two regions of a country, are alike, a diversity that makes Asia travel a delight.

PLEASE NOTE: Some articles on this website were written before COVID-19 emerged. I've done my best to keep destination articles updated but the changing situation has made it impossible to adjust the entire site to the realities of the pandemic or travel restrictions. You'll find updated information from the CDC about travel conditions by country but please check all appropriate sources before you travel as situations can change in minutes.
