Travel tips

Where is Georgia located?

Georgia is located on the border between Western Europe and Western Asia. It shares borders with four countries: Russia, Turkey, Armenia, and Azerbaijan.

Therefore, it is a great starting point or transit point for visiting these countries, especially Armenia and Azerbaijan.

Best Time To visit Georgia

Georgia has a diverse climate, meaning that depending on the region, the weather varies significantly.

So, in the highlands of Gudauri, Kazbegi, and Svaneti, besides cold and wind, you may find snow almost all year round.

However, in Tbilisi, the capital, temperatures tend to be milder, while the coastal region of Batumi is quite popular in the summer months.

Best Way To Visit Georgia

The best way to explore Georgia is by renting a car, but driving outside Tbilisi can be challenging. This is because drivers tend to drive fast and make overtakes that left me a little scared.

Alternatively, you can choose to take tours/excursions departing from Tbilisi. I found these tours to be quite affordable and convenient for those who don’t want to drive.

Ultimate Travel Tips

Georgian cuisine is fabulous! “Supra” is a feast with abundant food, music, and endless toasts. Georgian wine is famed as the oldest in the world, produced for about 8000 years in the region – the wine made in clay amphorae called qvevris.
