|| Fair tourism > Crime


It's not easy to cope with the extreme gap between wealth and misery. The lack of prospect for many young people and malfunctioning legal systems are reasons for criminality.

  • You should not be afraid, as fear won't help in any situation. All around the globe – and especially in tourist destinations – there is criminality. Be attentive and watchful.

  • All Western tourists are considered "rich" in developing countries. Show restraint: Exhibiting your wealth will increase the risk of falling victim to theft or mugging.

  • Keep your money and documents close to your body and put valuables in various pockets.

  • Keep away from drugs! There are high sentences involved all around the world, in some countries it’s even death penalty.
