Tips on Bethlehem Warnings or Dangers

Advice On Warnings and Dangers For Travelers

Travelers should always be able to have fun and feel safe on their journeys. Here is some advice on safety warnings and dangers in Bethlehem.

Pesky Sellers

During your trip you may wonder around and se people offering items for sale along the streets. While there are some pretty decent individuals simply selling quality items to support their families, many do not have the best intentions in mind. If you want to avoid pesky sellers by all costs, simply decline their offers.

It is not a bad thing to be cautious of individuals you do not know. In Bethlehem, pesky sellers try to take advantage of tourists on a daily basis. If you can, follow the friend rule and do not walk anywhere alone (especially at night).

Street Muggers

Criminals seem to find it acceptable to take advantage and mug tourists whenever they possibly can. One of the major drawback about visiting Bethlehem and not knowing the language is deciphering the good people from the bad. It is suggested that when you visit Bethlehem try to learn key phrases and words. The more that you can understand, the quicker you can avoid danger.

Holy Places

Holy places in the city are areas that you definitely want to avoid at all costs. While some may look cool and eclectic by their exterior, criminals typically use them as places to take their victims. You can differentiate a holly place from a regular building sometimes by noticing the bullet holes.

If you do not feel comfortable going to a non-disclosed area that is suggested by a local or friend, definitely stay away for your own safety.
