Preparing your trip to Delft: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

Delft 1. Tourists, who plan to make phone calls to other states, should use local telephones. They can be found near underground stations, close to major shopping malls and traffic stops. This method of communication will be the best and the cheapest one.
2. Voltage is 220 V here, so prior to trip we advise you to check the compatibility of electric shavers, hair dryers and other appliances that you plan to take with you.
3. Tips are usually included in the final bill of local restaurants and cafes, but you can please obliging waiters and hotel workers by adding 5 - 10% more to the total sum.
4. Many stores and shopping malls are closed on Sundays and Mondays. However, they work till late in the evening on Thursdays and Fridays.
5. Stores and restaurants accept all common types of bank cards. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
6. Approximately once a month bulky and large items are allowed to be thrown in the city. On the evening prior to that day locals start bringing unwanted furniture, appliances and other unnecessary items to the streets. Many townspeople make a search trying to find the things they need. It is worth noting that attending such event is not considered shameful. Antiques collectors will surely find it very interesting as there are many old items among the things left by locals.
7. There are many centers of bike rental in the city. This two-wheeled transport is very popular here. There are special parking slots near all major shopping centers and government agencies. Bicycle paths run along all major routes, making travelling here even more enjoyable and simple.
