1. Normally its dangerous and not safe

i have been here for 6 month. So far im free to go anywhere that i want to go. There are some beggars asking for money but they are not as aggressive as i thought. Just give them some money let say 100kw but its still okey if u dont want to give them money. They will not attack you.

The only things which is really true is EXPENSIVE!!!!
