For single women travelers, You Can Get Help – 24 Hour 7-Eleven Convenience Stores.
One of the most incredible safety tips for women traveling alone is to take note it the locations 7-Eleven store where you are staying.
7-Eleven stores are open 24 hours and are your best bet to run there in case of emergencies! There are cameras in the store and outside. If you’re in any trouble just stand in front of the camera and wave frantically for help.
I spoke to a few experienced women travelers and that’s they advise. It’s easier to locate a 7-Eleven than a police station in a new city or neighborhood.

Just follow the instructions and key in the transaction. For in international withdrawals, bank wire fees will be charged.
# 3 Drink Coffee sometimes I feel this should be # 1 <grins>
City Café makes a good cup of hot coffee that you will at least want to try once. I know the other bottled chilled drinks call out to you, especially the many flavored milk drinks.
Have a cuppa and rest a while as you plan your routes with the city maps.
# 4 Foods
Believe me; the 7-Eleven microwave food is tasty. There are lots to select and I have tried most during my trip. We ate this when famished hence no good photos to show. I recommend the ham and egg sandwiches (the bread is cottony soft!) Chinese and western noodles, lunchboxes, and even Onigiri (rice ball).
We see office workers, buying this and heating it up before carting their lunch and dinner boxes home to eat.
# 5 Fresh Fruits
In Taiwan, the location where a fruit tree is planted determined the size and flavor of the fruit. 7-Eleven is a great place to try different seasonal fresh fruits cut into slices. You get to try beautiful sweet melons instead of buying a whole large fruit.
One of the most incredible safety tips for women traveling alone is to head towards a 7 Eleven for help.
# 6 Chilled Beverages, Frozen Fruit & Snacks
I get stumped every day when I face the chiller. There are just so many types of deliciously flavored pints of milk, yogurt and fruit juices to choose from. I just love everything.
# 7 My Beauty Diary
Affordable beauty and skin care products are available according to skin conditions. If you’re worried, then you can try a pack of beauty mask in your hotel room at night to hydrate your skin.
Beauty masks are one of the must-buys in Taiwan’s 7-Eleven.
# 8 UNIDESIGN Thermal Underwear and Umbrellas
The necessity of life and adjusting to the constant-changing weather in Taiwan is easy to manage. You can get bamboo fibre thermal underwear, sock, shoes, and umbrellas. There is cool clothing or even paper products if you run into rains.
# 9 Open Chan
One of the most popular characters from Taiwan, Open Chan is a dog from the outer space. He is like a fairy godmother and loves to make everyone’s dream come true. When he waves his wand and says the spell, “OPEN,” everything will be OPEN!
Don’t miss buying home an Open Chan memento.
