When it comes to the safest destinations for women backpacking throughout Southeast Asia, Thailand and Vietnam compete for the top spot. However, Vietnam is placed sixth on the world’s list and is a good place to start, the article wrote.

Whether travelers make the journey by train, sleeper bus, or scooter, thousands of other solo travelers will also be making the same trip, it added.

Others places to make the list include Portugal, the Czech Republic, Japan, Guatemala, Vietnam, Australia, Greece, and New Zealand.
