Suitcases with code numbers

Try to carry suitcases made of light material with wheels, or suitcases with numberlock system. Keep your suitcases locked, and always carry an extra lock and suitcase chains, so that if you have to leave your luggage for some unavoidable reason, you can lock them in waiting rooms, hotel rooms etc.
Take spare lightweight bags

If you are planning to purchase items from tourist places, make sure you carry one or two lightweight bags.
Carry only essentials

Taking cognisance of time, place and season of visit, carry only the most important things with you. Avoid unnecessary items like too much of eatables, bulky clothing, heavy items, etc.
Money necklace or secret pocket

Avoid carrying valuable things. Wear a money necklace or stitch a pocket inside your outfit to keep important documents like passport, credit cards, travellers' cheques, etc.
Duplicate copies

It's always better to take photo copies of important documents and leave them with someone trustworthy. Make sure you keep a card mentioning important contact numbers, your age, blood group, etc, so that people may help you in the event of an emergency
If you are travelling alone or in a group, try and be in contact with one or two people over the phone, email, letter or fax.
Photography

Although photography is allowed in most public areas, certain cases may require official permission. The ideal time to shoot is during the morning hours between 6.30 am - 9.30 am or between 3.30 pm - 6 pm. There are plenty of places where you can do night photography. Photo films & developing facilities are widely available in the city.

Tipping

Depending on the service rendered, 5% of the total cost is appropriate. There is a service charge of 10% in most up-market hotels. While hiring taxis or autos, there is no need for tipping since they are all run according to metres. If you wish, tip at your discretion.
