“Welcome to Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia” our driver said as he helped load our luggage into the car for our transfer to our hotel. I was here for a short three-day trip with Ishita with the aim of exploring the city on foot as well as finding out more about what Georgia had to offer on the food and drink front. Ishita would be staying on to meet friends for a longer trip and to explore much more of Georgia. Georgia is an interesting place to visit. To the north is Russia, to the South, Turkey and Armenia. Head west and you will reach the Black sea and head southeast towards Azerbaijan. Rich in history Georgia is full of reminders of years gone past. Influences from the Ottoman Empire, The Mongols, the Russian Empire and Europe can be seen everywhere, which makes the trip interesting in terms of history and heritage, if that’s your thing, as much as for the culinary influences that are very much evident. Tourism is now playing a significant part in the Georgian economy but when we were there it still had a ‘not too touristy’ feel about it.

There are daily FlyDubai flights from Dubai and prices start from AED 900/person. Special packages on flights and accommodation is available all the time. Tbilisi is a charming town nestled between North and South Caucasus Mountain ranges. 3-4 days is comfortable for enjoying Tbilisi and its surrounding regions while a longer period would let you explore upto the Black Sea.
