safest places to travel alone Philippines


Are you a millennial who loves to travel? You are not alone! Recent studies have shown that millennials are among the top spenders when it comes to traveling [1], and now this group is embracing a growing trend: traveling alone [2].

Solo travel is an exciting and enriching activity that promotes self-growth; it leads you to learn more about yourself and get out of your comfort zone. Traveling by yourself might be intimidating, but it’s a great adventure to embark on even once in your life. If you want to try it but think it’s too overwhelming or risky, here’s a tip: ease into it and travel within the country first.

For your first vacation alone, choose a place that offers not only great experiences and sights but also security. To help you take the first step, here are the safest places where you can travel alone in the Philippines.


1. Sagada

Reflect about life as you savor this view in Sagada.



If you’re looking for a mix of adventure and relaxation, a great place to start your solo travel journey is Sagada. This cold town in Mountain Province is known for its exciting activities like trekking the hanging coffins of Lumiang and chasing the waterfalls of Bomod-Ok.

After enjoying the more adventurous side of Sagada, you can also spend a day of reflection and relaxation at Kiltepan Peak. It’s the highest point in the area and gives an amazing view of Sagada. Make sure to go to it early so you can catch the rising of the sun.


2. Davao

Mindanao might not be on everybody’s travel list because of safety concerns, but one of the cities safe to visit is Davao. In fact, with a low crime rate and strictly-implemented rules, it’s one of the safest cities in Southeast Asia according to online database Numbeo [3].

You can roam around the city and visit various tourist attractions including Museo Dabawenyo, People’s Park or The Philippine Eagle Center. If you prefer a more adventurous route, you can head to the Garden Island of Samal and spend a day in its gorgeous waters or hike the tallest mountain in the country, Mt. Apo.


3. Batanes

Need to do some soul searching? Batanes’ landscape will make it easier.

If you want you first solo travel experience to be extra special, why not head to Batanes? It’s no secret that Batanes is known for its incredible views and verdant rolling hills, but another amazing thing about this province is its almost zero crime rate. It makes it a safe place to explore around even if you’re traveling solo.

Let your mind wander while walking along the beach of Valugan, be in awe of how beautiful Batanes is at the top of Vayang Rolling Hills, or experience the kindness and honesty of the locals at the famous Honesty Coffee Shop. Just bring enough cash to last you through your trip as there are few ATMs in Batanes and most establishments don’t accept cards.




4. El Nido

For beach lovers who couldn’t get enough of the sea, a great place to try solo traveling is El Nido. El Nido is known for its amazing beaches and fun night life which you can definitely enjoy even if you’re alone.

You can choose among tours A, B, C, and D and explore various islands while getting to know other travelers on your tour boat. At night, you can bond with your newfound friends by enjoying the many bars and cafes in and around the city. If you’re into motorbikes, you can also rent one and explore Port Barton or the Twin Beaches of Nacpan and Calitang.




5. Masbate

If you’re the type of traveler who loves to go off the beaten path, make your way to Masbate. Dubbed as the “Rodeo Capital of the Philippines,” Masbate is characterized by acres and acres of ranches and an abundance of cows and horses. Here, you’ll be welcomed by jaw-dropping landscapes that’ll make you feel like a haciendero (farm owner).

After exploring the city center of Masbate, you can also head out and see the seas. Spend a day at Masbate’s very own sandbars, Buntod Reef Marine Sanctuary, and Tinalisayan Sandbar and swim to your heart’s content.


6. Ilocos Norte and Ilocos Sur




safest places to travel alone Philippines

Travel back in time in Vigan.



Ilocos Norte and Ilocos Sur are great places to conquer on your own. You just need to hop on a bus bound north and take a day or two off work to explore these spots.

You can start your itinerary in Vigan, where you can savor their famous empanada (fried pastry) and longganisa (sausage) while walking through the ever-charming Calle Crisologo. You can also pass by the town of Paoay and visit the stunning Paoay Church. Finally, you can end your trip at Pagudpud, where the majestic Bangui Windmills will leave you in awe.




7. Bantayan Island

Broken-hearted or not, everyone is welcome in Bantayan Island.

If you prefer a relaxing trip, head to Bantayan Island. This serene island located in the northern part of Cebu has become famous after being featured in a movie about being sawi (broken-hearted).

But regardless if you’re moving on from a failed relationship or not, Bantayan Island will give you the escape that you need. Bring a book and lounge in the island’s fine white sand, or enjoy its cerulean waters and swim until noon. You can also visit the nearby Virgin Island and Hilantagaan Islands if you want a change of scenery.




8. Dumaguete

No need to bring anyone along when you visit the “City of Gentle People.”

‘Known as the “City of Gentle People,” it’s no doubt that Dumaguete City is a safe place for first time solo travelers. As soon as you set foot here, you can immediately roam around the city and visit sites like the Siliman University, Rizal Boulevard, and the Belfry Tower.

Dumaguete is also the access point to nearby islands if you’re craving for some beach time! You can swim with turtles at the famous Apo Island, see dolphins in the wild at Bais Island or extend your vacation and explore the island of Siquijor.


Solo traveling can be scary, but it’s definitely an adventure you’ll never forget. Let us know in the comments section which of these places in the Philippines you’ll visit as a lone traveler!
