|Tbilisi Old Capital|
I ended 2018 with a winter Hokkaido tour in Japan covering Sapporo, Otaru, Hakodate, Niseko, Asahikawa, and Tokyo.
I went back to Philippines December 31, 2018 just in time to be part of the celebration of the New Year festivities in Tanauan, Batangas.
By early morning of January 2, 2019, I was already heading back to Terminal 3 for my Eurasia Tour.
Note: My Cebu Pacific flight is a connecting flight to Baku. I did not bring any baggage and I did not clear Dubai Immigration. I followed the line stating - CONNECTION.
You must have all t he necessary papers, namely: 1. Dubai visa, 2. Georgia visa, 3. Returning flight to Dubai, 4. Cebu Pac or any airline flight back to Philippines and hotels, if necessary.
There are various tours in Tbilisi but I have chosen the City Sightseeing Tbilisi. They offer various tours, namely the Red line, Blue line and Green line tour.
How do Filipinos enter Georgia? Are Filipinos required to obtain Georgian visa? You can file an application online on their website. You will pay approximately P3,500. However, upon arrival, I was told that if you have either a valid US, Japan, UK or Schengen visa or a resident of Dubai, then you are exempted from obtaining a visa.
I highly recommend that even if you have any of the said visa, it is a lot safer to have the Georgia visa since airline personnel are not acquainted with the exemption.
Then back to Freedome Squae and headed to Rose Revolution Square and then upwards to the mountains.
The following morning I woke up early and headed Avlabari Metro Station for my van trip to Yerevan, Armenia.
I had the tour started at 9:30 just after the free breakfast at the hostel.
Day 6 - Tbilisi to Istanbul
