Leave your expensive watches and jewelry at home.
Travel light, so you have more freedom of movement in questionable situations. Carry the least amount of cash that you reasonably can and leave the rest of it, along with your passport, credit cards and other valuables in the hotel safe.
If you feel you need to carry these things, don't keep them all in one place or in one pocket. Purses, fanny packs, and outside pockets are enticing to thieves, especially if they have that tell tale bulge that indicates money or other valuables. Inside pockets or a sturdy handbag worn like a sache across your chest will discourage thieves and show them you are on the ball. A pouch or money belt worn under the clothing contributes even further to your safety.
For women, dressing modestly and refraining from traveling alone at night are recommended.
It is also recommended to travel in groups, especially at night. Do not drink too much and be aware of your surroundings.
