Pickpockets are a hazard in nearly any tourist destination.

Be especially worried in areas where the local income is low, or where you are extremely conspicuous because you are a different ethninc group than locals. For example, in China, many farmers and some urban folk make less than US $50 a month. A tourist who can afford to spend that amount for one night in a hotel is an obvious target for theft.
