When you plan a trip to the local churches and temples, women are better to wear long skirts, and men - pants. Visitors may be rejected to enter a church if their clothes are too revealing or erotic.
Smoking is prohibited in public places. Violators of the rule can be punished and will have to pay large fines. However, most restaurants have special smoking areas. In hotels smoking is allowed on balconies.
All beaches of the city are municipal, so additional fees may be charged for the rental of sports equipment, umbrellas and sun loungers. The travellers, who expect visiting beaches every day, are recommended to buy their own umbrellas as renting them is quite expensive.
Do not forget to leave tips in restaurants and cafes. As a rule, their amount is 10 - 15% of the total bill. Even if the fee for service is included in the bill, you should leave a small fee to a waiter.
