I. Travel Safety Tips For All Of You Before Go
1. Travel Safety Tips – What You Should Take
To avoid being a criminal target, travelers should not dress in a way that can mark them as a tourist. Expensive jewelry will draw the criminal attention.
When tourists move quickly and can be likely to get a free hand. They will be less tired and less likely to set their luggage down, leaving it unattended.
Travelers shouldn’t carry valuables things, and then choose some places to hide them. The passport, credit cards, cash will be secure when put in a locked hotel safe. When people have to carry all of these on their own, they should put them in different places in pouch or wallet. Avoid outside pockets, handbags, and fanny packs that can be easier targets for some thieves. Inside a shoulder bag or pockets with strap across chest will be safer. The pouch and money belt under the clothing is one of the safest places.
People should also bring some medicines in packages.
People should avoid keeping the medicines in the labeled, original containers. Bring the list of their prescriptions or all the names of the medicines. If a medication is uncommon or contains the narcotics, people should carry a prescription from the doctor. If people have doubt about the legality of bringing a drug into other country, they need to consult country’s embassy before they travel.
Bring more passport photos, and also photocopies of the page of passport’s information to make replacement of their passport when it is stolen or lost.
Put name, telephone numbers, and address outside and inside the luggage. Travelers should use covered luggage tags to prevent casual observation of the nationality or identity in the locked luggage.
