Top 5 things to see and do in Georgia

2. Tbilisi Sulphur Baths

Spend an afternoon in a traditionally restored bathhouse and you can experience the relaxational and healing qualities of the springs that Georgia is built upon.

Is Georgia safe for tourists?

Georgia is generally safe for tourists although there have been instances of theft and muggings.
