3. Those who expect to dedicate a lot of time to shopping trips have to remember that commercial establishments have a strict schedule here. Major shopping centers usually open no earlier than 9:30 am and serve visitors until late in the evening. Small shops usually open earlier, but they serve visitors only to 6:00 - 7:00 pm.
4. The city has excellent public transport links. The fare in the bus is paid to a driver; foreigners are advised to stock up on plenty of small-denomination coins. The fact is that asking for change in public transport is not accepted.
5. Popular mode of transport is taxi, which can be called by phone or stopped on the street. Travelling by taxi is especially beneficial to those who dwell on the rest as a great company. Copyright
