6 best places to visit in the world for female travellers:
1. Bali – One of Asia’s best holiday destinations
Never-ending shores of the Jimbaran, Legian, Kuta and Tanjung Benoa beaches are hotspots for beach parties and rooftop bars. Surfing, water-skiing and snorkelling in the azure waters of Bali is the ideal thing to do.
Bali’s Sunset Dinner cruises promise good times with your girls over cocktails, entertainment, a delicious meal and a breathtaking atmosphere. Cabaret shows, live music, and the ever-buzzing clubs bring life to the island and makes for a great contrast to it’s tranquility.
Female travellers swear by the Balinese massage; that’s one thing every girl looks forward to in blissful Bali. Getaway Goddess believes in pampering women as they travel across the globe and treats you to a rejuvenating spa session after a fun-filled day in Bali. For shopping, the markets in Ubud and Kuta, and the art shops of Celuk are treasure troves for artefacts, silverware and jewellery.

2. Hong Kong – Modern yet soulful
Hong Kong can amuse you with its colourful temples, iconic skyscrapers and incredible views from its landmarks, such as the Peak Tower and the TST Promenade.
The Lantau Trail, Dragon’s Back Hike and the Hong Kong Biking Tour are perfect for the outdoorsy. While shopping at HK’s sprawling malls and street markets is something every women traveller succumbs to, experiencing the local flavours of Hong Kong is the next best thing to do. Party districts like Lan Kwai Fong and SoHo make for HK’s night scenes.
Macau’s glamorous casinos, high-end boutiques and luxury hotels can make you forget your life back home. Solo travellers love visiting its ancient churches, historical museums and quaint villages that speak of Macau’s rich heritage.

3. Thailand: Shop, party, relax, repeat!
Whether you go shopping at the XL-sized malls or the bustling street markets, shopping in Bangkok can give you serious FOMO. Nonetheless, don’t forget to wear comfortable footwear.
After all the bargaining and walking, a luxurious Thai massage is a legit excuse! Getaway Goddess pampers you with a rejuvenating 60 mins Thai massage to rid the stress away.
If you’re someone who likes clubbing, make a note that most clubs here offer free drinks for women on ‘ladies nights’. Maggie Choo’s, Onyx and CeLaVi are some great places you must check out.
At Pattaya, the Sriracha Tiger Zoo and the Underwater World are two of the most-visited places. Pattaya’s spectacular Alcazar Cabaret show, featuring ‘ladyboys’ is a hit among women travellers. For some downtime, hit any of Pattaya’s beaches and embark on any of the dinner cruises to enjoy a luxurious meal and some dazzling sights of the city.

4. Sri Lanka: Will surprise you in ways more than one!
Bentota’s fantastic beach, exquisite seafood and water sports are unmissable. Although options for nightlife here are limited, Ceysands, a floating discotheque can be a fun experience. Cinnamon Island and the Kosgoda Turtle Hatchery are popular places to see in Sri Lanka. Along with the beautiful attractions of this tropical country, you may also enjoy an ayurvedic massage at the Ayurveda Centre here.
The colonial heritage of Nuwara Eliya and its lush tea estates are a treat to the eyes. You can tour a tea factory, play golf and dine at one of the golf clubs, witness exotic birds and flowers at Victoria Park, and visit the Seetha Amman temple – the place where Sita was held captive.
Kandy’s precious gemstone jewellery and souvenirs make it a must-visit destination for women. However, you cannot miss the opulent Buddha temple, which preserves his tooth relic. Adding to the many attractions for Sri Lanka, a hike to the Knuckles Mountain Range or a one-hour trek to the observation point, known as Mini World’s End, can be refreshing.
Travel Tip: Wear modest clothes and avoid traveling alone at night.
