FAQs Answered By a Woman Traveler: Traveling Solo Around Southeast Asia

Hi everyone!

So, in case you didn’t know, I’m finally back to Vietnam after 3 years. It was the first country that I visited as a solo traveler.

And while this time I kinda get used to doing everything alone when I travel, I understand as someone who comes from Southeast Asia region, some people just ask you a lot of questions about your journey.

Some ask questions out of curiosity, some do it because they’re inspired to do it too, while the other one has a little concern about the idea of you traveling alone. And that’s totally fine with me. After all, not everyone has their privilege to experience solo traveling, I guess?

Now that I’m in Chau Doc, I’ve got some spare time to write as I’ll be on my way to Ha Tien tomorrow, and then continue my journey crossing the border to Cambodia the next day.

This time, I’ll share with you some questions frequently asked about traveling solo in Southeast Asia. The questions that I often get asked, especially as a woman traveling alone around the region.

What You Could Get in Hamburg for $10 – Is It Possible to Travel on the Budget in the City?

When I was 11, one of my best friends Mayang moved to Germany since her dad got a job there. It was my first time knowing there’s a city in Germany called Hamburg. It wasn’t until later that I found out this random trivia about how the city is related so much to hamburger.

It was since then that I wish I could stop by the city someday. To meet my best friend, and also to see how the city of Hamburg is.

19 years later now, I’ve never got a chance to stop by Hamburg, but Mayang still lives in Germany. She even occasionally stalks me out of my blog, and I know because she told me so. And yes, she’s basically the only friend from elementary school with whom I still have some occasional contact with.

So, if Mayang happens to stalk me and find this piece, I just want to let her that no worries… Visiting her in Hamburg is still in my must-do list. But today, thanks to Daniela of Top Writers Review, I’ll be covering Hamburg on this week’s $10 series!

This is the first series of $10 in 2020, as I gotta postpone the publishing schedule as the last Wednesday was new year’s day… Are you excited?!
