Tourists can place domestic and international long-distance calls inside their hotel. Phone bills will be included in their room bills and paid by the guest when checking out. Domestic and international long-distance calls can also be made in downtown post offices and some public phone kiosks with payment being made after the call is completed.
To make a domestic direct-dial call, callers need only dial the city code, and then the local number of the party you are calling.
To make an international direct-dial call, dial "00" (which connects you with the IDD telephone system), then the country code, then the city code (without the zero in the city code in the case of some countries), and finally the local number of the party you are calling.
Phone cards are available in post offices inside hotels or in the streets. Even more conveniently, most newsstands also carry phone cards. Telephone booths in the streets are mostly for local calls.
