Safety information and general good to know

  • Take extra care of your most important belongings.
  • If you grab a taxi on the street, make sure that your taxi has license plates and a specific taxi number.
  • Always have cash with you. Do not only depend on your credit card since many restaurants, shops and public transport only accept cash.
  • When riding a crowded bus, keep your backpack or purse on your front where you can see it clearly and keep track of it.
  • Instead of carrying your passport, carry a passport copy in color to show if needed.
