Try to not criticize anything relating to their traditions or customs as they get offended easily when/if this happens. Someone in our group made a bad joke about a custom of theirs and a heated argument ensued. It wasn't pretty at all. Just be nice and courteous. They are loving and friendly people and are very protective of their ways.

Do not drink alcohol on the street! Never do this or you will get fined.

Oh and don't take pictures of men and especially women here. It's frowned upon. You can ask to take pictures of men (never women) but they can and will sometimes say no.
