"PickPockets and Taxis" Qingdao Warnings Or Dangers Tip by xochoxo

Qingdao Warnings and Dangers: 7 reviews and 8 photos

Pick Pocketing---
i have lived in QingDao for 3 years.
Just be careful of your belongings on the streets.
Pick Pocket's don't work alone, usually have partners.. etc.
I watched a pickpocket steal a woman's cellphone, and
when i went over to tell her, the pickpocket's partners, came up to me
and threatened me. It was not a good experience.
Oh, and be careful on the public buses too (if you're planning to ride these..).

This is a huge problem that i used to face
and it pisses me off sooo much when they do this...
Taxi drivers trick us by handing us fake money.
and you wouldnt be able to tell,
unless you know the feel of fake money and the look of it.
I remember my friend who was handed a fake 50 rmb.
