Safety

  • Beware of thieves

    Flashy jewelry will make you a target for thieves -- this includes watches, which a pickpocketer can steal with ease and stealth. A bag with both a zipper and an external flap will make it difficult for anyone to reach into it without you noticing. According to iGuide, travelers should avoid the use of cell phones in crowded areas to prevent theft. Carrying small change instead of large amounts of paper bills also makes you less of a target.
