Foreign photographer tells why you should not go to Georgia
A new video about Georgia has gone viral on the internet. Author of the creative footage is Benjamin Martinie, known asTolt, who is specialized in travel-related content. In the video the tourist tells why one should not visit Georgia, but in fact he only promotes the country and its sites at best. Tolt is a film director and photographer. His "Don't go to..." series aims at breaking misconceptions about unusual travel destinations.

“We came to Georgia in May/June of this year
for 3 weeks. I was commissioned by the Georgian National Tourism Administration. And I got curious about Georgia in the first place because I like countries that are not too touristic yet. And I had heard positive stuff about Georgia. So I reached out to the GNTA (Georgian National Tourism Administration)”, - Author of the video to Georgian Journal.



Looking for amazing sceneries, a human experience, a rich culture and a delightful gastronomy, Tolt describes Georgia as one of the best destinations in the world. The main purpose of this video about Georgia was to attract more attention to the country. According to the author of the video, located at the crossroads of Europe, Asia and the Middle East, the Caucasian country has a great touristic potential that should pay off in the coming years.

“Do not go to Georgia, you might come back with colorful memories...” This is the main message of the video.
