Wear a wedding ring – it will make you appear less ‘available’ (but be ready for awkward questions about abandoning your home and kids).

If you’re unmarried but travelling in male company, say that you’re married rather than girlfriend/boyfriend.

Avoid direct eye contact with men (dark sunglasses help).
