> Travelling solo can be daunting at times, especially if you’re a woman who ends up walking along dark alleys.

A woman from China, who was travelling in Thailand, shared how she managed to turn the situation around, China Press reported.

According to the Chinese tourist, she felt afraid while walking along the alley heading back to her hotel. The road was quiet and dark, and many stray dogs were wandering about.

The woman said she came up with an idea and bought a pack of sausages from a nearby convenience store and fed the stray dogs.

The dogs then followed her on her way back to the hotel and acted as her “bodyguards”.

Social media users praised the woman for her cleverness and the dogs in Thailand for being well-behaved.
