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 Ho Chi Minh City for $10 – Vietnamese Coffee and So Much More!

Merry Christmas, everyone!

How has everyone been on this holiday season?! How many people in the family that annoy me this time? 😛

Anyway, this Christmas marks the second year since I spent Christmas in Vietnam 2 years ago. I spent Christmas eve in the capital city Hanoi, but I had some memorable things in HCMC. From a sudden date in Saigon to randomly met a fellow cat lady at Chatime. So random, but damn I’ve made some long last friendship now that we still like each other’s post on Facebook! 😛

This is why I was super excited when I got connected to Jackie and Justin from Life of Doing. Especially when they told me they would like to cover HCMC or Saigon for this $10 series. And it’s such a sweet coincidence now that I get to schedule it to publish it a day after Christmas. Happy Boxing Day, everyone! 😀
