Unit4Have a Safe Trip! Please refer to page 32
People visit other countries for many reasons. Some travel on business; others travel to visit interesting places that are only found in other countries, such as the Taj Mahal in India, the temples of Thailand, or the pyramids at Giza.
Wherever you go, and for whatever reason, it is important to be safe. A tourist can attract a lot of attention from local people. While the majority of people you will meet when traveling are sure to be friendly and welcoming, there are dangerous- theft being the most common.
Just as in your home country, do not expect everyone you meet to be friendly and helpful. It is important to prepare for your trip in advance, and to take precautions while you are traveling.
