Empowered Female Travel with Gaëlle Van Hieu at Michelin Food & Travel

Empowered Female Travel with Gaëlle Van Hieu - Aleenta Resorts & Spas

Solo female travel and groups of female travelers have risen dramatically in the past few years, thanks largely in part to an increasing number of destinations deemed safe and welcoming for female solo travelers. With the prevalence of WiFi and the ability to stay connected with family members and friends via FaceTime or WhatsApp while abroad, women are able to embark on exciting solo-adventures while still maintaining a sense of safety.

There were over 100,000,000 searches of “female solo travel” and other related keywords at the start of this year. Pinterest also reported that there had been a 350% increase in pins related to female travel.

In our efforts to Empower the Female Traveler within the Akaryn Hotel Group we had the opportunity to ask Gaelle Van Hieu, Vice President, Michelin Food & Travel, her tips about Female Travel.
