Traveling alone: Keep a low profile when traveling alone. Once again, dress and behave conservatively. Avoid flashy dress, jewelry, luggage, rental cars, or anything that will draw attention to you. Women should carry bags with the strap across the chest and the purse in front of you… not behind or to the side. Always act purposely as you walk about the town. Don’t look or act like a victim. Your hotel concierge is your best friend; get his/her advice on the neighborhoods you are visiting and which ones to avoid.
