03 Mar Single travel: Tips for solo female travelers to Malaysia

There’s no denying that traveling together with family members and friends can be rewarding. You and your group go some part of the world that is completely new to you. Yet, traveling alone is just as beneficial. You get to know what you like and dislike and enjoy a great deal of “me” time. What if you’re a girl? Your trip will be even more courageous. Becoming a wandering woman is what you should do. It will change you entirely. Besides the fact that you become a fearless person, you have the change to unplug from the world. So, find a destination for your next vacation. Malaysia is the ultimate travel destination for Brits. Don’t believe the stories that other people tell you about Shariah law. Malaysia is absolutely safe. Are you anxious about it? If so, take a look at these tips for newbies.

Carefully choose accommodation

Since you’re a British girl, you don’t need a visa to enter the country. You can stay for as long as you like. Well, almost. You’re not allowed to sojourn more than 3 months from arrival. You can consider yourself lucky. Indian citizens, for instance, need a Malaysia e visa for travel purposes. Since you don’t have to worry your head about it, start looking for adequate accommodation. You need a comfortable and convenient place to stay, so as to be able to voyage to the destinations well-rested. As a solo female traveler, you’ll have to take into account the location of the lodging, how safe it is, and whether or not it’s expensive. Ideal locations include Kuala Lumpur, Melaka, and George Town. Make sure that you stay close to the city centre and near public transportation.

Travel is safe – but you must still keep safe

Malaysia is the place where you won’t feel uncomfortable being on your own. A great many women choose to come to Southeast Asia because they want to see the jungle, go snorkeling, and enjoy cultural activities. It’s safe to say that Malaysia is for the single woman. But is it actually safe? Many agree with the fact that it’s safe. Malaysia is a modern country and a safe place for all. However, just to be on the safe side, you should take precautions. When you go to developing countries, you must ensure that safety is a priority. Keep your valuables on you while touring the country. Or don’t bring them at all. There are all sorts of thieves and pickpockets. What is more, don’t be so trusting. Not all people have your best interest at heart.

Eat at Malaysia’s night markets

You’re a big girl, so you can go and eat in Malaysia’s night markets. Not only will you love the food, but also you’ll fall in love with the bustling energy of the crowd. People come from all over the place to eat, talk, and laugh. Remember when I said that you shouldn’t be so trusting? Well, sometimes you can make lifelong friends. If you don’t know how to strike up conversations with strangers, then learn how to. It’s really not that difficult. And make sure to taste the satay, that is, the grilled marinated chicken.

Hi I'm Victoria, a British girl from Manchester. After graduating from university I decided there was more to life than the hours between 9 and 5, so I packed my journalism degree into my suitcase to travel the world and find a way to make money at the same time. I now call London home, although I still travel whenever I can. I hope to inspire you to be your own boss, live life and see the world.
