7. Don’t forget to leave tips in restaurants and cafes. In many dining places they are already included in the total bill. In small restaurants and cafes tips can be 15-18% of the total, and in prestigious restaurants their amount will be at least 20% of the total bill. Taxi drivers, porters and maids at your hotel, as well as other people engaged in the service sector, should also receive a small reward.
8. Bus remains the main form of public transport, and taxi is the most expensive way to move around the city. Travellers, who expect to use public transport, should get enough paper money in small denominations and coins. Charge is usually not given in buses.
9. The city is very convenient to travel by bike. Visitors can easily rent one of in numerous rental agencies. As a rule, these rental centers are located near hotels, so everyone can easily rent a bike.
