Solo travel experience

I loved Dahab. It is definitely safe to travel alone as a female. Many great hotels and hostels, including great food. It is a great combination between a small town and a beach village. A great mix of cool local people, families, expats and tourists.

Dahab is a jewel in the desert of South Sinai. Coral reef follows the coastline and the marine life is breath taking. Every day different types of workshops, yoga, arts, music. Lots of people around the world has created a community feeling to the place. Cheap and also safe, even as a solo traveller.
