Georgia is one of the cheapest countries to live, as a matter of fact, it got the 7th place for The cheapest countries to live in 2016 according to MSN Lifestyle, it is also the 5th most affordable country to buy groceries in. Though Georgia is not as popular as others, its capital Tbilisi alone has a lot to offer (not to mention the other parts such as Gori, Gudauri - ski capital, etc.).
From airfare, foods, to shopping and a lot more, I would definitely recommend Georgia to those who'd like to enjoy and get the luxury travel they wanted on a budget, specially for Philippine passport holders with GCC Residency.
Starting off from the capital, here are some of the many things to do in Tbilisi.
I started my 2016 travel adventure with 2 countries in 7 days by land just last January. It was indeed a new experience for me since my past travels were by plane. Good thing I have decided to join a group of friends' winter escapade to Georgia and Armenia for a change.
These Caucasian countries can be traveled via Sadakhlo-Bagratashen border between Georgia and Armenia.
Our travel package consists of a private bus transportation during the entire trip (including the border crossing; Georgia-Armenia-Georgia). Most of the officers in both immigration points doesn't speak English, but luckily, Ms. Anika, our kind travel agent from Best Travel who's an Armenian local, accompanied us all through out the process.
One of the typical issues we Philippine passport holders encounter when traveling out of the country is the necessity of acquiring a visa beforehand. We may have the advantage of visiting other countries without any need of security approval prior but it is only limited especially when it comes to entering European countries, and at times, processing for visa is not that simple.
I, together with a group of friends went for a winter escapade in Georgia and Armenia last January 2016. It was indeed an enjoyable trip having the privilege as well to enter both countries without any hassle.
For Philippine passport holders, this country doesn't require a visa prior to traveling. We are eligible to get a visa upon arrival and this is a great news for Filipinos who wish to experience some white Christmas and New Year! And oh, Filipinos who got GCC Residency are visa exempted.
