Going through some of the solo travel tips on Lonely Planet - I realized some of them are just plain common sense - others are from seasoned traveling types. Here are the main solo travel tips I liked:



SOLO TRAVEL TIPS AND GENERAL WHEN TRAVELING ALONE:



Lonely Planet offers the following tips for women solo travellers - but these can be applied to any situation:


* Pack your common sense.


* Try and speak a few words of the local language.



* Avoid flights that arrive late at night.


* Explore the area where you are staying thoroughly by daylight: it's
important to have your bearings and know any parts to avoid.


* If you're taking a taxi, only use registered or government-run ones. If
you don't know which they are, go to one of the upmarket hotel chains and get
the staff to call one (ask them how much you should expect to pay while you're
at it).


* Spend a bit extra on a hotel in a decent area: the streets will be safer
at night; there will be more security in the hotel.


* If you get unwanted attention from men, don't say you'll meet them later
to try and get rid of them: they will turn up. Say "no" politely and
firmly.


* Wear a wedding ring and say you've got seven kids if anyone asks. Yes, you
shouldn't have to - but sometimes it's the easiest way to fend off advances.
