Cheap flights from Georgia

Georgia is a country in the Caucasus region of Eurasia that lies in the crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe and is bound to the north by Russia, to the south by Turkey and Armenia, and to the southeast by Azerbaijan. It covers a territory of 26,911 square miles and has a population of over five million who are predominantly Ethnic Georgians, which falls under the Caucasian tag and does not fit into any European or Asian descent. The people here also practice Eastern Orthodoxy, a religion that adheres to the national Georgian Orthodox Church.

Where to go

Crowded by old churches and watchtowers that help paint a clearer picture of its green valleys spread with vineyards and fantastic mountain scenery, many consider Georgia as the birthplace of wine and one of the most beautiful countries on earth. With a plethora of places to visit, it is best to start from atop the city of Mestia. Situated at an altitude of 1400m, Mestia is a conglomeration of at least 10 neighbourhoods, filled with Svan towers that look brilliant in the night time. From its central square of Setis Moedani, its government has slowly filled the town with its own airport, a ski station, and hotels for tourists to stay at. There are two museums in Mestia that are worth visiting: The Museum of History and Ethnography, where a historic collection of 1890s Svaneti photos by Italian Vittorio Sella, and a hall with reproductions of famed Svaneti church murals can be seen; and the Mikhail Khergiani Museum, where you can find traditional Svaneti artefacts and woodcarvings. If you wish to taste the much heralded wine of Georgia, a trip down the region of Kakheti is a must. Known as the wine capital of the country, tourists are invited to drink wine at almost every stop here. A visit to the Alaverdi Cathedral, considered the spiritual centre of Kakheti, is also something worth doing. But a trip to Georgia won’t be complete without a tour of its capital of Tbilisi, the place where Georgia’s main attractions can be found. The Museum of Georgia and the National Gallery can be both found here.

Travelling to Istanbul from Georgia is something that’s almost automatic for those who are looking for nearby city to visit. With direct flights offered by Turkish Airlines, Pegasus Airlines and Atlasjet Airlines, the two-hour flight time to the city that brags of one of the world’s best cuisines is just within grasp. One popular attraction in Istanbul is the Grand Bazaar, where most travellers spend hours (or even days) just to shop and bargain. If you are in for some sightseeing, you can’t miss the Aya Sofya, a structure that started as a church before becoming a mosque and today, it is now a museum filled with rich Turkish history.

Get into the capital of Japan, Tokyo, via the Tokyo Haneda Airport, and explore the huge, wealthy and fascinating metropolis that shows glimpses of the future, with its high-tech vision while you still get to enjoy what it’s like to live in Old Japan. Visit the famous temples of Asakusa, the gardens of the Imperial Palace, and the Meiji Shrine. If you wish to view the entirety of the city, come to the highest spot in the city, which can be found at the Tokyo Metropolitan Government building whose twin towers have viewing platforms for everyone. And if you are not allergic, don’t forget to eat sushi at the Tsukiji Fish Market.
