Tbilisi
Suddenly appearing on 'everyone's' radar, Georgia's vibrant capital city is certainly becoming a major hotspot, for both travelers and those who work online. Surrounded by beautiful mountains and full of friendly people, Tbilisi's Russian and Persian influences have led to detailed art nouveau architecture, Eastern Orthodox churches and concrete apartment buildings all standing side by side, often on cobblestone streets. With excellent nightlife, a unique cuisine and great wine, plenty of spots to work from and a low cost of living, this city will only grow in popularity for remote workers. The rest of the country also offers impressive destinations that are perfect for both day and weekend trips from the capital.

It's worth taking a look at the realtor pages on Facebook, then cross-reference it with the owner-listed websites likeย myhome.geย and SS.ge. You'll likely see the same place and can contact the owner directly for a better price. I did this with my most recent place.ย Rents can be as low as $300 USD and as high as $2000 USD per month depending on what you're looking for of course.
By Noah T. Where to live
Where to find accommodation? I personally like Vake. I value being close to the park in a walkable area where I donโ€™t need a car for day to day needs - and it's less crowded. I donโ€™t think there is a โ€˜bestโ€™ area of Tbilisi, every district has its pros and cons. If you want somewhere less polluted, the higher up you are the better the air, meaning Mtatsminda and Tskhneti for example. Saburtalo is where most foreigners tend to base themselves though.

After trying many, my favorite cafes and coworking places in Tibilisi are: Fabrika (also a hostel), Double B Coffee & Tea, Prosperoโ€™s Books and Calibanโ€™s Coffee House, Impact Hub Tbilisi and Mediathek in Vake Park.

If possible, bring cash with you. It is somewhat common these days to have issues withdrawing local money with a debit card from the US, but no one is sure why.

Visit the sulfur baths. The bathhouse district, Abanotubani, is located in the Old Town. A great place for a sulphuric soak is at Chreli Abano.
