"The Pickpockets' Paradise" Pick Pockets Tip by Tom_Fields

Pick Pockets, Paris: 173 reviews and 62 photos

Like all big European cities, Paris is full of pickpockets. The Metro, the sidewalks, and other public spaces have some of the world's quickest and smartest. My advice is keep your wallet in your front or shirt pocket, NEVER in the back. Also, keep your hand near your pocket. Beware of any stranger coming too close to you. Maintain situational awareness at all times.

Address: Paris
