Most of the people are still in habit of visiting a travelling spot with a significant amount of money. This is because, they are yet to be savvy with credit-debit card use and so take risk of carrying money with them. The biggest disadvantage of such practice is there is a heavy chance of pick-pocketing. Another problem is carrying money in pocket often pushes one to overspending as they fail to make every minute assessment of how much they are left with.
When you are travelling with money, make sure that you are carrying a heavy sum neither in your pocket nor wallet. Develop the habit of card-dependence. Also avoid crowded places as there is chance of theft. It is never wise to be careless especially when you are outside of your hotel room. Tuck your wallet in such a place from where it will not come out if you stoop.
And it hardly needs any mention that you must not trust anybody easily as it is an unknown place and you will come across only unknown people.
