"Two major hazards that face..." Beware Pickpockets Tip by growler

Beware Pickpockets, Palma de Mallorca: 10 reviews and 2 photos

Two major hazards that face the tourist in Palma/Majorca are 1, The gypsies that accumulate outside the cathedral. They are expert pickpockets and know who and how to remove money and money belts from without you feeling a thing. Wear your bum bags under your T shirts and dont let them near you when they offer you flowers for sale. 2, On the busses which are exceedingly packed. You enter at the front and exit at the back of the vehicle. This is a prime time for the pickpockets as pushing past you they releive you of your cash and then get off the bus as it drives away. Always if possible hire a safe and store your valuables.
