If you want to go to a stylish place for drinks head to the Galerias de Paris street and surrounding area as it's full of cool bars and discos. It's common to get a drink and then just stand outside in the street with all the other partygoers.

Some of the most popular coworking spaces with my friends in Porto are:ย Porto i/o, CRU Cowork, Cool.Office Porto, Facts Coworking and Muratto Open Space Porto. They all get good reviews but offer different vibes so it's worth checking them out and deciding which suits you the best.

Porto is really quite safe with a low crime rate. Keep an eye on your valuables on the city's trams and metro, where pickpockets and bag-snatchers occasionally operate, especially in rush-hour crowds. It's good keep an eye out in the tourist hubs such as Rua das Flores and Cais da Ribeira as well. But overall, there's not much to worry about here.

The popular caldo verde (soup) served at restaurants is NOT vegetarian... even if the waiter says it is. it almost always has small chunks of sausage in it. Vegetarian options in restaurants are relatively limited: expect to eat a lot of salads and omelets.

My favorite restaurants are Arvore, where you can enjoy a view of the Douro river and Museu D'Avรณ (famous for their tapa). If you're looking for a real hidden gem, head to Taberna Santo Antรณnio and order the codfish pataniscas.

It is important for you to learn how to order your coffee properly. In Portugal, ordering cafรฉ will get you an espresso, which may be too strong for some people who will actually prefer a meia de leite (half-coffee and half-milk) or a galรฃo (a shot of espresso with triple the milk).

Some cafes that are friendly to remote workers and digital nomads are Combi Caffee (super fast wifi), The Royal Rawness (slower wifi, but decent enough, just don't make calls on Skype) and Mesa 325 (steady wifi also available here). Other popular ones are ร‰poca Porto, Bird of Passage, Chรก das 5 and 7G Roasters.

Bring comfortable shoes! By far the best way to explore Porto is to walk. It is quite hilly, but small in size, so almost all the major sights, cafes, nightlife and so on are within walking distance to each other.
