I will be traveling alone through SE Asia-Hanoi, Laos, Bangkok-- for about three weeks. Should I wear my wedding ring or leave it at home? I'll likely be out and about and maybe hiking at times. But I'm worried the perception of having a woman travel alone.
Leave it at home.
I've travelled through SE Asia for over a year now as a solo female traveller and have never experienced any hassle or felt the need to pretend I had a boyfriend or am married. At the end of the day, if a guy wants to hit on you, he'll do so whether you're wearing a ring or not. I don't think it would be much of a deterrent :) over 5 years agoAnswered by Lauren via WorldNomads.com
