WHERE to Go, Stay, Eat, Drink and Buy in August

So you arrived in Georgia and you’re now wondering WHERE to Go, Stay, Eat, Drink and Buy. You want to know what’s on the latest events calendar and where the nearest bank, clinic or wine bar is. You want the best recommendations from the most qualified people. And you want discounts for the best dishes, tourist venues, jewelry, wine and more.

Then let us introduce you to Where, the latest and best tourist guide to Georgia, brought to you by the Georgia Today Group in partnership with the Georgian National Tourism Administration, now in its 2nd edition.

Where to GO is introduced this month by Mako Abashidze, Founder Director of the British Georgian Chamber of Commerce, sharing with us her personal travel recommendations in Georgia- from the famed Tbilisi Opera House to a hidden culinary delight in the capital city- with canyons and wine in between!

More on the Opera House on page 36, but before you get that far in, you have a whole Georgian experience to delve into- from the National Treasury at the Georgian National Museum Simon Janashia Musem of Georgia, a vast gold and numismatic collection, to the heights of the Svaneti and Adjara mountains and the magnetism of the Black Sea coast. Dolphins, gardens, cocktails, beaches and food- find out everything you need to know to have a relaxed, fun and educational experience in Georgia’s favourite seaside city- Batumi! You may learn some things that even your tour guide doesn’t know!

Where’s cultural guide to Batumi takes you on a comprehensive tour of the best museums and galleries. Discover Georgia’s archaeological treasures dating back to the Byzantine era, the best works of the 20th century Georgian artists- including world renowned Rusudan Petviashvili- and find out more about what the Nobel brothers did for Georgia.

Our events calendar will tell you all you need to know about the latest theater performances, art exhibitions and concerts and, if you’ve still got energy, check out our list of casinos and nightclubs in our Nightlife section.

In the Where to STAY section, Manager of Travelshop, Nick Manjgaladze, shares his choice of hotels around the country and we extend that with our feature on Medical Tourism, with a full list of resorts and hotels to satisfy every desire.

On to the Where to EAT section, and Mariam Kvrivishvili, General Manager of Fly Dubai Georgia, shares with us where she’d take guests with an appetite for something magical, chic and truly Georgian.

On the topic of truly Georgian, our Editor Katie Ruth Davies sacrifices her waistline to find out three of the top places to grab that seaside special, Adjaruli Khachapuri, in Tbilisi and also reveals her tips for making your very own Turkish coffee. Following that, Tim Ogden this month introduces you to his top 6 Art-Cafes to inspire you as you dine. Find out more on page 74.

Thirsty after all that?

In our Where to DRINK section, Maya Sidamonidze, owner of Hotel The Terrace, offers her list of the best venues to taste exclusive wine and signature cocktails such as Culinarium’s Thai Bloody Mary (Tbilisi) and the deceptively light Mexican Watermelon Cocktail served at Fanfan in Batumi.

On that theme, we recommend the best Batumi cocktail venues on page 89.

We then whisk you away to the unique suggestions of Nata Gogoladze, Head of Marketing at Tbilisi Mall, who not only gives you the low-down Mall-side but also of a number of her favourite concept stores as an introduction to this month’s Where to BUY.

While in Tbilisi, be sure not to miss a trip to the Dry Bridge open air market for some unforgettable and affordable old treasures. Check out our photo reportage on page 98-99 to inspire you!

And what would any self-respecting guide be like without a map of the city and a guide to the most needed services- banks, pharmacies, clinics and real estate companies? Where has it all!
