Group travel experience

Tbilisi is a beautiful city, boasting exceptional cafes, landscapes, and nightlife. I feel safe here; however, you should be cautious of a certain crowd, specifically pickpockets. The local cuisine is amazing, particularly the Georgian foods such as Khinkali and Kachapuri. As a student who has been studying here for the past five years and renting an apartment, I have visited most places in Georgia.

Tblisi made me feel safe. All i recommend you is, taste all traditional food. You won't regret it. Also, the old town is really small to drive or using public transport. You can walk to anywhere you want.

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 city’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 was in Tbilisi for 2 weeks. It was a great experience. The city has many great things to do. Many nice markets, cinemas with english movies, nightclubs, many restaurants and a lot of places with good wine. I stayed in a Hostel, there are many cheap options, even with „female only“ rooms. Beside the city there also is a big lake, if you want some space from the city life. I felt very save even at night time.

Solo travel experience

I love Tbilisi. My favorite things to do there are pretty much just walking around different places and eating. The old part of the city is very beautiful, just like the large main street, Rustaveli. The best restaurant I found was a small, local one. Very cheap and with amazing food, it's called Mapshalia. The traffic is crazy, I travel a lot and I've never been more terrified in a car than in Georgia.
