In any country, crimes such as theft, pickpocketing… are unavoidable, especially in public places, always crowded with people. Therefore, to avoid being robbed of money, you should leave some cash for self-defense or buy some items such as drinks, snacks… and the rest should be kept in the card. ATMs are always ready to serve you on any street so you don’t have to worry about not being able to withdraw money in an emergency. In addition, in Western countries, you can pay online without withdrawing cash, very convenient, isn’t it?

If you don’t have time to make a copy, you can take a photo of the entire document and save it in your phone.
4. How to behave in public
No matter which country you go to, you should learn in advance about the culture, customs and laws of that country, see what they abstain to avoid making mistakes, causing unnecessary misunderstandings.
