Travel Tips

There are few kite schools around, so you'd better bring your complete gear for most of the spots you want to explore. Watch out for Traffic Police, since they target tourists to threaten them with fines that make up some extra dollars. Ordinary police can also stop you, trying to give you a fine, but since they are not traffic police, they cannot do it, so keep it in mind. Having a passport with you all the time is required, but a copy can be enough when browsing around.
