By doing this you will need to make sure you do not carry a lot of valuable belongings with you as you could be an easy target. Also while walking around the local are you need to be aware of any pickpockets as they can easily try and take your handbag without you even realising. Also public displays of affections are frowned upon. In there past there have been several arrests for kissing in public.
Also the country’s laws are that tourists should not offend, for example no swearing especially during the holy months for example Ramadan and religious areas. Swearing and making rude gestures are considered absence acts and offenders can be jailed.
Tourists under the age of 21 are not allowed to drink alcohol. Alcoholic drinks are served in licensed hotel and clubs, but it is a punishable offence to drink, or the be under the influence of alcohol, in the public. There is a zero tolerance for drugs related offences.
