As the saying goes, “Do as the locals do.”

Make Copies of Your Itinerary
Always leave a copy of your itinerary with a family member or friend back at home and be sure you check in with them regularly by phone or email so they know what’s going on at all times.
Contact your home country’s embassy when traveling internationally. It is always a good idea to register so that they know when you are visiting.
It’s okay if you want to have a cocktail with your meal but you have to make sure you are alert at all times.
Less is Best
Travel lightly. Minimizing your luggage not only increases your movement but it also decreases your chances of becoming a target for pickpockers and thieves.
Wear a “Wedding Ring.”
This will help unwanted attention from men and also make men believe you are meeting up with your “husband.”
Trust Your Intuition
A huge part of traveling is experiencing new things, but not all activities are meant to be. If you feel something or someone is not quite right get yourself out of the situation.
Make copies of your passport and other important travel documents and keep them in a safe in your hotel room in case you lose or misplace it.
Avoid The Night
Don’t travel alone at night. If you decide to travel alone at night never travel in dark and quiet areas. Make sure you take a taxi to where ever you are decide to go, make sure you are drop off at the front door.
