Asmara Warnings and Dangers: 5 reviews and 3 photos
It's easy to see the difference between rich and poor people here. Some parts of Asmara have nice houses and fashionable streets. Other parts are so unbelievable poor. Many Eritreans can only afford one meal a day and walk around in dirty clotes full of holes. It's wise to be discreet and use caution. But Asmara is a safe city despite this poverty.
The local people were polite against me, even when I walked by groups of young men. No attempt of pick pockets when I walked in crowded places. I walked alone in spooky and deserted streets at nights without any problems. I had only one unpleasant incident from a beggar who followed me 2-300 meters, but he was harmless.
There are some military personnel in the streets, but no police.
