I’ve always recommended that American travelers look through the State Department’s catalog of information (not just travel advisories) for the country or countries they’ll be visiting. I learned this the hard way years ago after I was duped by some Hungarian girls into going to a bar that tricked tourists into spending 10 times what they should have on booze. Only afterwards did I see that exact scam (and bar) listed on the State Department’s page. Doh!
In this crazy day and age you can never be too safe or informed, so be sure to do your research!
Curious that this website does not mention the November Paris attacks…Thanks State Department
