The affordability of Armenia. It is so cheap if you buy local products. Also the services are really inexpensive - a woman's haircut is less than $20. Car repair is the cheapest ever! - May 2021

It's safe, there are lots of good restaurants, and the people are friendly. - Mar 2017

Armenians are exceptionally warm, hospitable people making the country a pleasure for foreigners. They are inclusive and inviting, and they make us feel almost like royalty. Touring is beautiful, especially in the spring. Prices are very cheap compared to the U.S. (except imported goods), so it is easy to save money, and also do things that in the U.S. are cost prohibitive (for example a weekly massage, private exercise classes at home, concerts etc). There are 4 distinct seasons, fall and spring are beautiful. Lots of fresh fruit and veggies in season. A lot of cultural activities: concerts, art, festivals etc. Yerevan is a walkable city, and families stroll in the evenings often. Very safe and child friendly. House keepers and drivers are good and very affordable. - Oct 2014
