16 Places To Visit In Georgia And Tbilisi

More than 10 years ago I first landed at the Tbilisi airport and for the first time took a step on Georgian land. 

That happened on April 1st, 2011 - I like this data - it's known Worldwide as a Fool's day. 

With this article, originally I was celebrating my fourth year living in Georgia. But now, the article has grown into one of the most popular articles about travel destinations in Georgia. 

In this list, I have listed 16 must-see / must-do places while in Georgia that I have personally visited and/or have taken action on. Use this article to plan your trip to Tbilisi, Kutaisi, Gudauri, Bakuriani, and more
