You must carry the most important stuff with you all the time in the hand carry. Keep some money at locked hotel room and some in your wallet. In case someone steals your wallet, you have an amount left. It is good to keep cash at 3 to 4 different places. This way you don’t lose everything at once.
Back Pocket is not safe

Always look back when you leave
Whenever you stay somewhere for a while and then leaving the place, look back. It prevents leaving things behind. When you are mesmerized with the scenic beauty you may forget that the bag strap is not on your shoulder. You might forget your shopping bag, umbrella or water bottle. This habit of looking back before moving will save you from losing important things.
Do not open up with strangers
You must not share anything with the strangers, especially personal information. Do not talk much. Just be polite with everyone and behave in cooperative and friendly way but do not try to befriend them. You should not go or invite someone to the places that you do not know. Also, do not accept food or drinks from any of them. Remember what we teach to children? Not everyone is trustworthy. It is better to ask Google than to people.
