So I booked a hostel not far from the airport which has pick-up service for free and Jacuzzi.
The airport was big, clean and modern and I couldn't imagine any crime here. Then I saw a guy who offered a traveller to show the way from international to domestic terminal and finally asked the traveller to give him a little money. The way to domestic terminal wasn't difficult at all, just find the sign and follow it. Well... it wasn't a crime, nothing.
On the way to the hostel I saw nobody walked and each house had a tall wall and top of that there was a iron fence. So quiet and it made me a bit scared.
That night one of the staff asked me for a drink in downtown saying "Don't worry. It's safe when you're with local people" but I didn't take this offer. I didn't want to take any risk like this...
Only one night and I didn't see anything special but I was impressed by this city somehow.
