Know your exact destination before arriving. Read traveller reviews and contact locals to get information about the safest neighbourhoods, places to stay and crimes. Visit the State Department’s website for state updates and registrations.

Another important precaution for travel safety is knowing who to call in an emergency. Get the contact information of the nearest embassy, ​​consulate, police station and other local emergency departments.


2. Don’t draw attention

It seems that people from areas outside the city are particularly vulnerable to crime, so please try to integrate into society. Choose secret clothes that don’t attract attention. Please be careful when viewing the map. If you need to ask for directions, please communicate with others carefully.

Dont draw attention

You should also consider investing in protective clothing and equipment to make it difficult for pickpockets to steal money and other personal belongings.

3. Copy important documents


Copy important documents

You never know when you need a copy of your passport, driver’s license or any other form of identification. Scan these documents to save them online and print multiple paper copies. This way, if you need to go home, you won’t be in a hurry to find the right paper.

4. Update your friends and family at any time

Update your friends and family at any time

It doesn’t matter if you are going to spend the night or a long journey on an international trip, it is always a good idea to inform your friends or family at home. Before leaving, please send a copy of your itinerary to some trusted people who can monitor your location. Check with your contacts regularly so they know where you should be.

5. Beware of public Wi-Fi

Beware of public Wi Fi

Don’t let the convenience of Internet access overshadow your judgment. When using a public Wi-Fi network, hackers who want to steal valuable information can access your data, including credit card numbers or social security numbers.

6. Protect your hotel room

Even if your hotel has taken strong security measures, you can take some measures to make your room safer. Close the door, close the door, and then close the window. You can buy sunscreen, a portable device that slides under the door to provide another layer of protection.

Protect your hotel room

Try to give the impression that you are in the room even when you are outside, such as spreading the Do Not Disturb sign outside the door, and keeping the curtains or windows closed.

Even if strangers say they work in a hotel, do n’t let them enter your room. You can contact the front desk at any time to check whether the hotel staff has ordered someone to enter your room.

7. Pay attention to the surrounding environment

Pay attention to the surrounding environment

Don’t worry, please take the perfect picture for your social media platform. Pay attention to your property at all times and use good judgment when talking to strangers. A great part of the fun of travelling is the opportunity it provides to meet new people and learn about their culture. However, if the behaviour of someone close to you is suspicious or you feel uncomfortable, please leave the area immediately.
