How it works:
- Version 1: it is actually free to just enter the old city (without going into any of the attractions) but at the eastern and western gates, you may be asked to pay for entrance. At the Northern gate, you won’t be stopped – i.e. it is open for free.
- Version 2: not technically a scam, but you can be way overcharged for souvenirs, restaurants as well as for taxis here.
Places to beware:
What to do:
- Know your rights but if you want to enter any of the attractions, you have to pay.
- Have an idea of what the fair prices are for souvenir, food and for taxi to not be ripped off.
