Questions about Russia

Jump to last reply

My brother is traveling to Moscow next month with his University, so he will be taken care of to some extent in regards to his safety and accommodation. But he's 19 and extremely inexperienced with traveling and handling anything foreign so this is a huge leap for a first time non-family trip. Any safety advice that I can give him from others who have been to Moscow will really help! I know for ex, that he has to carry his passport on him at all times. I also looked at this: http://www.smartraveller.gov.au/zw-cgi/view/Advice/Russia# and http://travel.gc.ca/destinations/russia but people are saying that "it's never a good time to travel to Russia". What can he do to keep safe?

What is the best way for him to carry money? He will only be going for a few days for a business competition and expenses are covered, but I think he will have to pay for food, plus anything else he might want, so only minor expenses. Would it be better for him to just withdraw money from an ATM at the airport? Would they be difficult to find? He isn't travel savvy at all.
