Security

In order to stay safe:

-     Don’t show in public places your expensive electronic belongings

-     Avoid walking alone, especially during the night

-     Although French people are very welcoming, especially if you speak French, avoid answering any provocation in the street. Just keep walking.

-     Politeness is important in France : “Bonjour”, “s’il vous plait”, “excusez-moi”, “pardon” et au revoir”, are your best friends to avoid any problems.
