Parisian Pickpockets

Jump to last reply

A blogger shared the following article about Paris' sharp rise of Chinese robberies is causing my paranoia to flare up again. http://www.scmp.com/news/china/article/1249285/robberies-cashed-chinese-tourists-rise-steeply-paris

Last time we were in Paris, I was pickpocketed in CDG and am determined not to be this time. I was planning to take my convertible camera bag/handbag: http://www.etsy.com/listing/127322689/leather-camera-bag-cheetah-cow-hair?ref=shop_home_active
but am thinking maybe (for Paris) I'm better off removing the camera bag insert and putting into something less noticeable.

Suggestions? We leave a week from Saturday so there's time to order something from Amazon.com.

Thanks
