The summer holiday is an exciting time. There's no work pressure, exams are over, and the atmosphere is laid back and relaxing.
Many people spend their time exploring, whether it's a visit to the local market, shopping up a storm at the destination’s popular malls or visiting local attractions. In between all the excitement, some travellers forget to be safe, which could make them targets for crime.
Here are 5 tips to stay safe this summer holiday:
