What to do:
- Here, touts seemingly offer you bracelets, necklaces or beads for free, tie them around your wrist and will then ask for a fee.
- The situation is not that bad as these can simply be removed and returned, whereas in places like Italy and France, the bracelet is almost impossible to remove after being tied.
- Besides bracelets, it can be postcards or other small souvenirs as well. Once you take it, they will not take it back if you try to return it.
Decline. If you want one, clarify a price first.
