Benidorm 1. The majority of shops in Benidorm are open from 10:00 to 21:00. Some shopping centers may be closed during a working day for a lunch break. Fans of shopping should keep in mind that in Benidorm low price of goods is usually the indication of its poor quality. The travellers, who want to save money on purchasing souvenirs, are recommended to go to Cala de Finestrat market, which is open on Fridays.
2. CARREFOUR supermarket is the best place to purchase food. It works every day including weekends and lunch breaks. The shopping center is distinguished not only by the largest choice of products, but also by very attractive prices.
3. In many luxury or famous restaurants high cost of dishes is not always a sign of their special taste. As a rule, travellers pay more for the name of the restaurant and its luxury decoration. While selecting a place to eat, tourists are better to keep an eye on the local residents. The more visitors a restaurant or a café has, the higher is the quality of its dishes.
4. Do not forget to leave tips in the restaurants. As a rule, the size of tips ranges from 10% to 15% of the total bill. In some facilities service charge may be already included in the bill.
5. The most beneficial way to make phone calls to other countries is to use special telephone boxes, which are located close to public institutions, shopping centers and traffic stops. You will need a telephone card to use these public phones. The cost of a card may estimate 12 or 6 euro. Cards can be purchased in any newspaper or tobacco outlets. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

Spain: travelling advices

2. It is more convenient to move around the cities on subway. It costs less and passengers don't have to stop in traffic jams. It’s better to walk short distances, so you'd get acquainted with the architecture and features of each city.
3. If you rent a car, you should be very careful. Spaniards do not always follow the rules of the road; they are in no hurry and are quite unpredictable while driving. They often forget to turn the signal while switching lanes.
4. Spaniards are sociable people. They are not accustomed to ride in the subway or bus in silence. There are stormy discussion of news, politics or even just the weather among unfamiliar people. Tourists, who first encountered such a lively conversation, can easily enter into communication.
