So long, and thanks for all the fish.
There has been an increase in the number of incidents relating to muggings of foreign nationals (some have had drinks spiked in casinos and clubs before being mugged). When walking you should be alert to the threat of pickpocketing and other forms of theft. Always avoid unlit streets and parks at night, and be extra vigilant if walking alone.
There have been a number of reports recently of foreign tourists being charged extortionate prices for drinks in bars. Some have then been assaulted or forced to withdraw money from a cashpoint to pay for the bill. You can help avoid situations like this by ensuring that you check the price of drinks before ordering, pay for one round at a time and seek recommendations for bars from trustworthy sources like your hotel or other holidaymakers. A search of the internet can also reveal good and bad feedback on individual bars and clubs.
Car theft is rife. Wherever possible guarded car parks should be used and valuables kept out of sight.
