Popular travel guide, Lonely Planet, has named the Philippines in the list of best places in Asia for female solo travelers.

Lonely Planet writer Sofia Levin, whose mother-in-law is from the Philippines, recommended the Southeast Asian nation as among the six safest travel destinations in Asia.

The Lonely Planet feature then went on to highlight the attractions of Philippine travel, the first of which is its people. “I’m convinced Filipino people are some of the friendliest and most hospitable in the world,” wrote Levin.

The travel guide article noted how a good number of islands in the archipelago can be explored alone, with some lesser-visited spots requiring local guides.

“I want to try to conquer my tendency to over-plan my travels by letting a trip here unfold instead of pre-booking every stay and experience. Wish me luck!” says Levin.

Lonely Planet had previously recommended Palawan in the Philippines as one of the 10 Most Unforgettable Travel Destinations in the Asia Pacific.

The Philippines was also named the 8th Most Favorite Place for world travelers in the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards 2019.

The Philippines had also won two major awards for Asia’s Leading Tourism Board and Asia’s Dive Destination in the recently concluded 2019 World Travel Awards.
