As long as you're with locals or native speakers in your party, you should be fine. Usual cautions apply, just as if you were on shore leave in the old days - try to blend in, nothing ostentatious, keep your wallet in your front pocket , try to limit the amount of equipment you have to lug around. After a while, it gets hard in the heat and humidity. Enjoy the trip and please share photos if you can.
