4.0 out of 5 stars The best available, 24 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Georgia (Bradt Travel Guides) (Paperback)
This is a very well-written and thoroughly researched guide - by far the best currently available in English on Georgia (2013). However, it is outdated in many respects - not least the huge advances which are taking place in infrastructure, communications and traveller facilities in the last 3 years.

The country is posed between SUV hell and the pre-modern era. Someone - presumably the USA - is pouring hundreds of millions into new roads and communications .. and new police cars, which are ubiquitous. Georgia is entirely safe at present (excluding South Ossetia and Abkhazia).

It is a perfect country to visit: exotic, very beautiful (especially old Tbilisi and the high Caucasus), almost empty of tourists, highly diverse, fantastic historical castles and churches, reasonable facilities, good food and much genuine folk-loric culture. The people are generally friendly and politics are very much alive and of course confusing and chaotic. There is even a burgeoning jazz scene.
