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

Winnipeg, Manitoba 1. When you plan to visit stores and markets of Winnipeg, it’s better to take the local currency with you. Even U.S. dollars are not accepted everywhere. Paper money in large denominations is usually treated cautiously. Some small shops and markets may even not accept it due to inability to verify the authenticity of banknotes.
2. Money should be exchanged in banks and special exchange offices only. It is better to avoid the services of individuals. Exchange rate and size of commission may vary significantly in different banks.
3. If you expect to do a lot of shopping, you are definitely recommended to prepare special documents that make you eligible for tax returns when you will leave the country. Note that you won’t be able to obtain receipts for the goods purchased in open air markets.
4. Alcoholic drinks and tobacco products can only be purchased at state stores. They have two types of rates – a day and a night one. These rates can vary significantly in some stores.
5. The situation in the streets of the city is quite safe. You can walk safely in the central part of the city even at night because this place is always very crowded. In public places, major shopping centers and in transport you need to monitor your personal items closely, because the level of pickpocketing is rather high. Do not go for a walk to remote areas of the city late at night. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
6. For security reasons, it is not recommended to leave valuable items in your car, even if you want to leave them just for a few minutes.
7. Local parks and reserves are equipped with special picnic areas. Before you start a picnic it’s important to clarify all local regulations. Any violation of the rules is due to large fines.

8. All hotels are equipped with standard American type wall sockets. Line supply voltage is 110 V. Before going to a trip, make sure you check you appliances for compatibility and stock up adapters if necessary.
9. Do not forget to leave tips in local restaurants and cafes. As a rule, a tip of 10 - 15% of the total bill will be enough. Small rewards are usually given to taxi drivers, maids in hotels and hairdressers.
10. When going for a walk, you should not forget to take a copy of your identity document. Entering some entertainment facilities is available only after visitors show their passports. Valuable items and cash should be kept in a safe in a hotel room, or deposited at reception.
