Dangers & annoyances

Female travellers will notice a change in attitude towards women around the ferry terminal area. Expect a few snide remarks and unwanted stares. Ferry ticket touts and freelance porters can also cause irritation. Don’t let anyone touch your luggage without agreeing to a price first, or better yet just don’t let anyone touch it.
