India is one of the favorite travel destination for travelers. Still, some areas are unsafe for single women who travels in the country.  Here are the best tips and guide on safety tips for solo women traveler in India.

  1. Dressing modestly is also considered respectful in India for both men and women, so avoid sleeveless tops, shorts, miniskirts (ankle-length skirts are best) and anything skimpy, see-through or tight. A dupatta (long scarf) can be worn over T-shirts or anything, really and helps deflect attention. In a UN Women survey of women, girls, men and boys in Delhi, 75% of the men and boys agreed with the statement ‘women provoke men by the way they dress’.

  1. Wear a T-shirt and long shorts over a bathing suit when swimming, following local custom.

  1. When traveling by overnight train, choose an upper berth to avoid prospective gropers and have more privacy.

  1. Avoid eye contact and chit-chat with unknown men,  both can be misinterpreted.

  1. Ride in women’s cars on trains, where they exist, and try to book seats near the front of long-distance buses. Sit next to other women when possible.

  1. Avoid public transportation at night, and never ride in empty buses or trains at night.
