Madina best place to travel alone for women; Delhi among least safe

Hyderabad: Madina in Saudi Arabia has been ranked the safest city in the world for solo female travelers.

InsureMyTrip has done a survey to determine which city is the ideal location for solo female travelers. They ranked 66 global cities based on data points relating to cost, safety, gender equality. As per the research, Madina scores a perfect 10 in both categories of “safety walking alone at night” and “absence of worry about attacks based on gender.”

Chiang Mai in Thailand is the second safest, while Dubai in the UAE is the third safest city.

However, Indian city Delhi is ranked among the three least safe cities, with Johannesburg, South Africa and Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia.

InsureMyTrip claimed that while many travelers enjoy traveling with friends or family, there are a number of travelers who prefer to go solo.

However, India ranks among the top affordable destinations. The most economically priced destination is Jaipur, India, with costs averaging just $17 a day for transportation, food and suitable place to sleep. For Chennai, India the average cost is $26 a day, and in Chiang Mai, Thailand it is $39 a day.
