The best countries to travel from Georgia

Sunday, October 03, 2021 Travel Guides by Ani

Georgia has gone from a backpacker’s paradise to a popular tourist destination in less than 10 years, and today is by far the most traveled country of the South Caucasus, and it’s evident the reason why: its rich history and stunningly diverse landscapes make it a perfect destination for those who love nature and history at its grandest.

From its lush valleys dotted with vineyards to its ancient church and watchtowers tucked away in stunning mountain landscapes, Georgia never disappoints. In recent times, Tbilisi is now one of the most fashionable cities in Europe and has a growing club scene, world-class eateries as well as a variety of organic wine bars that make it the hippest place in the region. Its unique qualities are also its spirited, proud citizens: Georgia claims to be the place where wine was first made, and it is a city where visitors are considered to be blessings while hospitality and warmth are the essences of life.

But if you have decided to visit this mesmerizing country, you have a bunch of options to travel around the Caucasus and explore the highlights of the region. You have Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Turkey nearby, pretty much on car-driving distance. We will cover what you can see around the country in either a few hours or few days.

Innovation is always met with criticism. However, the British pioneered something that has was widely adopted around the globe, extreme sports.
