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.

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.

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.

The city is pretty safe. There are some pickpocketing issues in the main tourist areas, so keep an eye on your belongings, but the risk is lower than in many other European cities. Also, keep in mind that sometimes locals invite foreigners into a bar for food and drinks and then force them to pay a really high bill at the end. It's a scam and while it doesn't happen often, it's good to be aware.

When going away for a weekend, make sure you visit Sighnaghi. It's a very charming town with cobblestones streets. Or head to Stepantsminda. It's also a small village with breathtaking views of the mountains. I personally like visiting Vardzia. It's a cave town located around a four-hour drive from the capital.

Breakfast isnโ€™t generally a big occasion in Tbilisi โ€“ cafรฉs generally donโ€™t open until around 10 or 11am. Good to know if you like to work at a cafe.

Entrรฉe is a very popular coffee chain. Youโ€™ll find these cafes all over the city, their coffee is decent, as are the pastries, and most of the locations have good wifi and decent seating.

If you like dancing and techno music, head to Mtkvarze, a former Soviet-era fish restaurant/club on the left bank of the Mtkvari river. Also you can go to Bassiani, located in the old basement swimming pool of Dynamo stadium. Both are excellent!

For local food, you must try khachapuri (cheesy bread) and/or khinkali (Georgiaโ€™s national dumpling)!

Wander through the old town, take a ride on the funicular to Mtatsminda Park to soak up panoramic views of the city. There is also an amusement park that sits at the top of Mount Mtatsminda.

If you like museums, you will have plenty of options in this city. The most popular are: The Museum of Fine Arts, Elene Akhvlediani House-Museum, Mose Toidze House-Museum, and The National Gallery. They're all great places to spend a couple of hours.
