Here are a few tips that could help when traveling:
Keep your travel plans, including accommodation details, to yourself. Avoid giving out too much information, particularly on social media, on your activities.
- Try not to travel at night if having a road trip.
- Don't make yourself an attractive target when travelling. Don't wear expensive jewellery on obvious display. Beware of scams when travelling; thieves devise inventive ways to rob. For example, posing as a tour guide and offering to show you the sights of the city. Even if you're not sure where you're going, walk like you've got a purpose.
- Match your dress style to that of the locals. Don't wear an obvious 'tourist' outfit like a loud shirt with a camera slung around your neck.
- Be discreet when map reading.
