Travellers tell tales of chaos and mayhem in regards to getting around Azerbaijan. With a little harnessing of your chi, you might fare just fine in your travels. A few things to watch out for involve roadway conditions and crazy drivers as well as pedestrian dangers on the street.
You won't have as much of a chance of falling ill in Azerbaijan as you would in other Asian countries, but a risk is still present. Medical facilities aren't up to snuff throughout the country - you'll have most luck finding one that meets Western standards in the capital city of Baku.
Crime exists on a few levels in Azerbaijan. Part of it stems from political instability and violence related to the conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh. In this area, sniper shootings, insurgent attacks and landmines are possible. But if you stay out of this area, you shouldn't have problems with these issues.
