What are the particular advantages of living in this city?

Currently, Georgia has done a really good job of managing COVID-19. It means that we are living under strict restrictions, however, we also are less concerned about our safety. - Jun 2020

Art, music, culture, generous people, ancient history and traditions. Christianity was founded here at the same time it was started in Rome, in the early 4th century. There is always some surprise around the corner here. Georgians really like Americans -- that's something you don't find in every country on earth! - Jan 2019

Cheap, fresh fruits and vegetables. (Oh and bread! Delicious bread.) - Apr 2017

Touring is great, Georgia is a beautiful country with a lot of history. COL is low, so saving money is easy, but there is a lot to spend money on if you want to. - May 2016

Georgia was an awesome Post. It's easy to travel throughout the country. From Tbilisi to Batumi at the Black Sea to Sighnaghi to Svaneti. The food was amazing, the wine was fantastic (500 different grapes.) Inexpensive skiing to Gudauri and Bakuriani. - Jul 2014

Wonderful scenery and good outdoor opportunities (hiking and camping). For a small country, Georgia has a lot to explore, including many historic ruins. Tourism is a growing sector, though still in its infancy, so while hotels tend to be overpriced with poor service, it's well worth getting out and exploring this beautiful country. - Oct 2011

Can save some money. There is not much really to buy in the way of souvenirs. Countryside is mountainous and beautiful. - Sep 2011

The outdoors are amazing. The mountain scenery they say is like the alps 100 years ago. You can save money. Having a maid costs 12usd per day and we pay our daughters nanny 250USD per month for 12 hour days including Saturday. Everyday is a new adventure in Georgia, and that's what I like the most. - Apr 2011

The country of Georgia is absolutely beautiful. If you love the outdoors, then this is your place. There are lots of unexcavated historical sites where you can walk right up to the site. The Lari is weak against the dollar, so you are able to save money. It is also easy to get to Western Europe, Istanbul, Dubai and other Eastern European locations via air. Tbilisi airport is new and in good condition, however, most flights leave in the middle of the night. - Jun 2010
