Safety overview

Safety at night:Safe

Tbilisi, the enchanted capital of Georgia, is generally safe to explore even at night. Though it's always important to be aware of one's surroundings, the streets are well-lit and crowded with locals and tourists alike. There's an occasional pickpocketing incident, but violent crime is relatively rare. It's always recommended to keep your belongings close and refrain from wandering into deserted alleys alone after dark. Overall, the city is friendly and the locals are often willing to assist if you need help.

Public transportation: Safe

Public transportation in Tbilisi is generally safe and reliable with various options available such as buses, metro, minibuses, and taxis. Buses and the metro system are straightforward to navigate and inexpensive. Taxis are also widely available and are relatively cheap, but it is advised to make sure the meter is running to avoid being overcharged. It's also worth considering that as in any other big city, one should be careful with pickpockets, especially in crowded places.

Street harassment: Low

Street harassment in Tbilisi, is relatively low. It is a generally safe city where respect towards women is a cultural norm. Serious incidents aren't common, and most locals are welcoming and helpful. That being said, unwanted attention or occasional lewd comments could still occur from time to time, especially in crowded areas or late at night. As always, being aware of your surroundings and practicing common sense is essential while travelling.

Petty crimes:Low

Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, generally enjoys a low level of petty crime. Pickpocketing or purse snatching can occur, especially in crowded areas or tourist hotspots, but it's not overly persistent. Utilizing basic precautions like not flaunting valuables and keeping belongings close will significantly reduce these risks. Overall, it's a fairly safe city for solo female travelers, but vigilance is always key.

Tap water:Safe

Tap water in Tbilisi is generally considered safe to drink. The water source and infrastructure are well-maintained. However, as with any new location, individuals with a sensitive stomach may want to acclimate slowly to avoid potential upset. In addition, it's always a good idea to confirm with your accommodation since water quality can differ from one area to another.

Couple travel experience

Maybe because I was there with my bf, I felt very safe, even considering we walked around the city late at night. The cityโ€™s very young, vibrant, dynamic, it has some Berlin vibes (but with better food choices haha) We ate a lot, despite being a bit heavy and greasy, the food was amazing (both at fancy restaurants and some no name cafes along the road) We rented an airbnb apartment, despite being small, it had everything we needed. Especially considering that we went there only to sleep and take a shower. Link: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/50358406?source_impression_id=p3_1701523183_4m5mRxtA3St3Y4%2BE

Solo travel experience

I love Tbilisi. My favorite things to do there were pretty much just walk around and eat. The old part of the city is very beautiful, as is the big main street, Rustaveli. The best restaurant I found was a little local one. Very cheap and amazing food, it's called Mapshalia. Traffic is crazy, I've traveled a lot and have never been more terrified in a car than in Georgia.

Solo travel experience

I loved Tbilisi. Hop on/off bus was great way to get a good overview. I stayed near the Sulphur Baths and Botanical Garden. Did a lot of walking too. Also took day excursion to Vardzia caves (interesting) and to a castle. Absolutely beautiful country.
