"Bring the money, dear tourist." Togo Tourist Trap Tip by Alpha_Ghana

Togo Tourist Traps: 6 reviews and 1 photos

Lots of people requesting you money for anything in the airport. Be very carefull to your belongings and never show your money.

The police is there everywhere and they show you their hat, you have to put banknotes inside. Have small units!

Unique Suggestions: Pretend you have only credit cards or give the smallest coins of your country (1 cent USD, 1 Euocent, etc), at least they will not do something with it.

Fun Alternatives: Pretend you don't understand French-English, they will leave you after.
Never allow them to carry your suitcases,
Never look like you don't know where you go.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
