Is it safe to travel alone (female)

Given all the negative press recently, my family are very concerned that I am planning to travel to South India alone in October, 2013 (I am 53)

Can you advise please?

There are a lot of solo women travellers in South India so don't worry about it as long as you keep to the usual tourist areas you won't have a problem and I'm sure you'll meet other travellers. I felt safer in India than in any European country.

South India is a very safe place for solo travelers. I belong to North India. and i have seen in my travel to South India that the part of India is very much Tourism Friendly and welcomes you with Open heart. so chill and Enjoy your travel to South India.

The only Reason Why North India is not that safe as South is Everyone is busy in there life, office, college etc. lot of work. everyone is so tensed. and that is somewhere we lack it in few of northern parts. like Delhi.

i should not say this about New Delhi as i am also a born Delhi Guy. but fact is fact, any way we keep on try to improve ourselves.

Chuck my thing, Enjoy travel.
