Imagine you are the person, which direction do you look to see the starting point?

Although the wording "to the right side" was used in the question, it's reasonable to suppose that "to their right side" was meant, so that the person is moving south after their second turn. Hence the answer can be given as "west" or as "(directly) to their right side".
