Know what to pack and what to ditch in luggage for solo female travel…
Most solo female travelers want to pack light but they often end up with a heavy luggage.
Overpacking makes solo female travel stressful for 2 reasons:

1. You cannot move around freely.
2. Bad people may target you to steal your stuff.
These minimalist packing tips will let you enjoy a carefree solo trip without bothering about luxury and style.
Take a medium-size backpack with inside pockets to organise things. It is easy to carry. Unlike suitcase, it keeps your hands free.
You need 3-4 pairs of casual wear and a sleep wear for a weeklong trip.
Select clothes made of soft and wrinkle-resistant fabrics.
Palazzo, skirt, capris, and track pants give a breezy feel. Pair them up with nice contrasting color tops and shirts for a new look every day.
A big scarf has many roles during travel.
Wrap around if you feel cold, cover up head, use as face mask, tie like a belt and more.
Pack fancy heels only if you have any special plan to dine out. Otherwise, it's not a good walking shoe.

Carry a microfiber bath towel. Light in weight and does not occupy much space in luggage. It is also easy to wash and dry.
Reusable water bottle and ready to eat snacks. You never know when you will feel hungry or thirsty.
