USEFUL INFORMATION TIPS
Tip at restaurants hotels or when you are on a tour with guides and drivers, is generally not included. Not compulsory but a voluntary tip can be given if you are happy of the service you get. It is usually 10% or over… Ps: When you take a taxi tip is included and they must have a “taxi meter” switched on when you get in.

TAKING PICTURES
Taking pictures: Taking pictures at “military zone” is prohibited. Children love that you take their picture (keep some candy with you if you can, they will ask for “bon bon”). Taking picture of a women or old men in a remote village at the countryside is something you should pay attention, they usually do not like it. But sometimes yes, ask permission before you take it ( say “photo” pointing your camera).
