How it works:
- Pickpocket cases here are actually very rare and they tend to be opportunistic individuals rather than the professional gangs which work the rounds in Europe.
Places to beware:
- Muscat: MutrahSouq
What to do:
- Passport: carry a photocopy instead of the actual one.
- Valuables: wallet in front pocket, small valuables in a money belt/hidden pouch, large valuables in an anti-theft bag.
- Travel insurance: get a good one that covers theft – check out the various travel insurance comparison platforms to find the best deal that works for you.
