Tourist Information

  • Tourist information is widely available throughout the region. Most towns, big or small, have a tourist office of some description, which at the very least will be able to provide a rudimentary map and give information on accommodation. Some even provide a hotel-reservation service, which might or might not be free.
  • In the absence of a tourist office, useful sources of information include travel agencies and hotel receptionists.
  • Tourist-office staff will often speak some English in the main centres, but don't bank on it away from the tourist hot spots.
