6. Pay attention to crime & safety issues.
Be alert and keep yourself safe. Don’t flash money, high-end cameras or electronics. Choose a hotel in a safe section of town even if it means spending a little more.
7. Try not to Llok like a tourist.
Keep the guidebook and camera tucked away in a crossbody bag. The more you blend, the safer you’ll be, and the more you’ll be approached as a savvy traveler.
8. Watch out for the single supplement fee.
Look for travel companies that waive the single traveler fee. The single supplement is built in to many travel-related prices, like hotels and tours where they often charge per person based on two people traveling together.
