Things I'd consider:
- Customs questions (are they going to ask you where you're staying? If you don't have a hotel, you might have a problem.) I am certain there's a travel wiki out there that can tell you if this might be an issue.

- I generally want to have some way to know I can get to a safe-for-tourists area fast when I've done that kind of exploratory travel. Usually that's been some combo of just enough cash handy for a cab ride (other stuff may be elsewhere on my person), an idea where I'd want that cab ride to (maybe a couple of different places) and a way to share it. (name of area written down on paper, for example, so I don't have to trust my pronunciation of the local language.)

(Language can complicate this: Mom and I did 'wander around a lot' in Budapest, where neither of us had the least grasp of the language. I made a point of writing down the subway stops we used, and other useful names just in case we got totally lost. She thought I was silly until it helped us get off at the right subway stop on the way back.)

- General tourism, though? Go for it. Maybe with a quick look at "Stuff you should not do because it'll get you in legal trouble/etc." resources.
