“Tbilisi is home to a lively art scene, great local cuisine, a wealth of Georgian wine, luxurious bathhouses and more” – says the

author of the article Alan Henry. He asked for an advice to one of his colleagues Debra Kamin who had already been to Tbilisi . As well as to Ria Misra , who also traveled to the country and has some experience.

 

The first advice was to take a camera, eligible to take good quality photos. “The city is endlessly photogenic,” – says Debra Kamin. Ria Misra advised to take a portable camera that slips into a bag and requires small space.

One of the landmarks of Tbilisi is the Abanotubani Baths. The Baths as old as the city and is one of the main tourist sites. “But remember to bring your own bath gear” – reminds Kamin, “The towels and toiletries on offer are not the best, I wish I’d brought my own!” In her turn, Ria Misra says to take a towel, which is absorbent, dries quickly and takes up little space, and a small toiletry case, again stressing the importance of space in tourists’ bags.

The last advice is not to forget about duty-free, where it is possible to buy Georgian wine in a relatively low prices. Ms. Kamin suggested to bring a carry-on suitcase with extra space for duty-free wine. “Georgian wine is so unique,” she said. “I wished I had more space to stock up after security in the airport.”
