Solo female travel is on the rise, according to the 2015 Women’s Travel Survey by Tripadvisor. Polling over 9,000 respondents worldwide, the survey found that 48 per cent of more than 400 Southeast Asian women have travelled solo – up from 36 per cent the year before. And of these solo female travellers, 79 per cent intend to so again this year, citing the top reasons of increased independence and self-reliance (62 per cent) and having the freedom to do whatever they wanted (60 per cent).
