Cars and Driving
Rental car agencies are practically non-existent, so visitors will not have much opportunity to drive. Given the traffic congestion, this is not necessarily a hindrance. If, however, one finds oneself driving a host's car and needs to buy gas (petrol), one should know that self-serve does not exist. An attendant will do everything. Get out of the car, and be certain that he sets the gas dispenser at "0." Watch as the gas tank is filled. In order to avoid a potentially disastrous mix of gasoline and other substances, stick to the IBP petrol pumps. One always pays in cash.
