Do a Google search for ‘solo female travel’ and 206,000,000 results (as of November 2019) pop up. Trekksoft (the online booking software company) highlights that Google Trends reflects a growing interest in solo female travel experiences as well.
But statistics are not the reason we decided to offer our own Mongolia female only tour experience.
As a female business owner, it is important to me to use my skills and influence to improve the prospects for other women. An integral part of our business philosophy is empowering women through travel and tourism and we do that by providing training, development and employment opportunities to Mongolian women that want the opportunity to work in tourism (whether that be for a professional reason, for development of personal skills or for economic empowerment). We provide opportunities for them to work as our long-term trip assistants (guides). We also form long-term local community partnerships throughout the country and working in this way, it was a natural step to offering Mongolia women only tours that focused on experiencing Mongolia from a woman’s perspective.
But this is not about ticking the box for equality or diversity and unlike most female only experiences, we haven’t just replicated standard tour itineraries and just made them female only. Instead, we have designed this experience to allow our female travellers a unique opportunity to discover the challenges and lives of local women in Mongolia through a range of experiences. Women in Mongolia typically enjoy equality with men and traditionally have had higher social status and greater autonomy than women in some other Asian countries and experiencing Mongolia from a woman’s perspective will surprise you.
During this experience, you’ll soon understand the breadth and depth of the careers and lives of women in Mongolia as you experience their daily lives side by side with them – led by one of our brilliant female Mongolian trip assistants providing you with a more personal introduction to Mongolia as you travel with someone who not only sincerely loves their home country but loves the moments that travel brings.
So … bring your sisters, your daughters, your mums, your grandmothers and your close female friends. Join our female only female led experience through Mongolia. Unlike most female only experiences, we haven’t just replicated standard tour itineraries and just made them female only. Instead, we have designed this experience to allow you as a female traveller a unique opportunity to discover the challenges and lives of local women in Mongolia through a range of experiences.
