Bangkok The Travel Destination for Solo Female Travelers

Bangkok is a fail-safe option and the perfect holiday destination for a solo female traveler in Thailand.

The “Land Of Smiles” with unforgettable sights and delicious affordable street food make Thailand incredibly popular with solo travelers.

Thanks to its luxury shopping centers, world-class bars, and restaurants, your solo trip urban adventure in Bangkok is where you can enjoy a luxurious weekend retreat.

A perfect holiday alone can be anything you want in Thailand. You could try a homestay in a northern hill town, spend a week on the beaches of Koh Samui, learn Thai kickboxing as self-defense or even stay on a retreat on a remote island.

A mix of the above may be just the right medicine for you to recharge.

If you prefer an array of luxurious hotel, remember the price of luxury in for Thai hotels is quite affordable.

Why is Bangkok a perfect holiday destination for female travelers?

Whatever your budget, travel solo or on a girls’ getaway for the weekend, Bangkok is the perfect destination.

Is Bangkok safe for a solo female traveller?

Yet for all its charms and attractions, Bangkok isn’t without its places to avoid. Generally, Bangkok and most of Thailand is quite safe.

Like anywhere else in the world, you may want to avoid walking the streets at night. After the shop closed, all the workers will leave for their homes and can be quite deserted late at night.

Would you encounter any sexual harassment if you’re a woman?

Despite the country’s prolific sex industry, Thailand is largely safe for solo travelers of both genders

Women are unlikely to attract any more attention than men when traveling alone.

Remember the standard precautions apply in Thailand as in anywhere else in the world.

Do not take unlicensed taxis and don’t go home with strangers.

What should you avoid if you’re traveling alone?

Whether they’re due to popularity, seediness, scams or danger some of the places to avoid are

  • Places for backpackers to stay.
  • Taking unmarked taxis and bargaining a flat rate with a taxi driver.
  • Thai adult entertainment and strip clubs.
  • Seedy areas of Khaosan Road, Patpong, Nana Plaza, Soi Cowboy, and Khlong Toei.
  • Some shopping and night markets, please avoid bargaining too low.

A 3D2N trip is perfect for a short trip!

Normally, I would plan for two half a day shopping either at the fashion district of Pratunam market and Chatuchak weekend market. A shopping spree to check out high-end malls like Siam Discovery is always a bonus in Bangkok.

When there’s no beach, I would splurge on a hotel with a great pool. Maybe I get to finish reading a romance novel. Sometimes doing nothing feels great.

A lazy time lying on the poolside with a cool drink is fun!

Fit on a spa day. Throw in eating street foods. Have some delicious meals out at the best restaurants in town. After dinner, have a mojito or two and chat or play games at the Sky Bar. Eat bite-size chocolates treats in the afternoons or even order in room service after midnight.

Thai food is made for eating

Relax, enjoy your eating trip. Have desserts with every meal! I do this in Thailand. It feels wrong not to have that third Mango Sticky Rice even on the shortest trip to Thailand.

You’ll be a guaranteed fun trip with your Besties like me. It was just one looooonnnngggg meal broken up by massages and shopping.

I stayed at three top-end hotels for my recent trip out and the verdict is a loud resounding YES!

Bangkok is safe for women travelers to have fun and paint the town pink! The best part of coming home to the hotel at night with our shopping and massages!

If you can go for a longer break, take a whole week off and stay like me. You’ll be amazed. You get to do so much more with a few extra days.

You will be glad you experienced the friendly Thai hospitality.
