"Watch your wallet!" Istanbul Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Avryle

Istanbul Warnings and Dangers: 283 reviews and 139 photos

Be sure to keep your wallet someplace secure!! I was stupid and had my purse hanging over my shoulder in a dolmus. When I left the dolmus my wallet was missing from my purse thanks to the fellas sitting behind me. Lucky for me there wasn't anything in it other than my credit cards and ID- the situation could have been much worse (i.e. my passport could have been in it)

Funny thing is, I was having such a wonderful trip, that having my wallet stolen didn't even phase me!! It's just a hassle to have to cancel and have everything replaced.
