Singapura, The Lion City/ Garden City/ Red Dot

Being called as the Lion City, Singapore is known of its greening policy and the easiest place to do business. Why it is called Lion city, founder has most likely saw a Malayan Lion. Being colonized by Britain for more than 140 yrs, is now a finance, global commerce and transport hub. The most technology ready nation, thus you can tell it's a progressive country with one of the most strenuous container ports since 1990's.

A quick view of SENTOSA...one of the best place to go in Singapore..

TOP 5 to Do's in TBILISI, GEORGIA

I love travelling a lot! This blog is for your reference if you have plans for vacation to Southeastern Part of Europe. The largest city of Georgia, called Tbilisi. We traveled to Tbilisi, Georgia with out a Tour Guide. A place where few locals can speak English, but we were able to manage and maintain composure as difficult to communicate with them in sign/written language. I had a wonderful experiences to share for your guide as a traveler. One of the 5 things you can do in Tbilisi, Georgia.


Never miss sightseeing for 5 places most visited in Tbilisi.

1. The Narikala Fortress, an ancient fortress overlooking Tbilisi. No entrance fee, for free. All you need to do is ride on a cable car going to Narikala Fortress in 2 minutes. You will enjoy the overlooking views while on your way up.  You have to bring a bottle of water in your way up to the hill. But, what a stress relieving travel. I have the chance again, I might come back Tbilisi. I went there for 3 days, but it isn't enough. If you plan to go there, better go for a week vacation, you will really enjoy Tbilisi, and







2. National Botanical Garden of Georgia. This is located 5 mins going down from Narikala Hill. When we started walking and looking for this, we lose patience. But as we tried to ask some locals, 
finally we are able to reached our destination. The National Botanical Garden of Georgia. It was an average experience, quite, peaceful and serene place to relax.

3. The Bridge of Peace - so called the "the bridge of souls". It was a very cold afternoon as the temperature is 16 degrees Celsius. It is a bridge glass and can be good to see if evening, as you will see the lights like stars from the sky. 

4. Rustaveli Avenue - Some shops are located in the old /yet well maintained buildings. Items sold here are quite expensive. This is where we found the National Museum of Georgia. We paid few Georgian Lari as entrance fee to the museum, around 10-15 Georgian Lari, in Dirhams AED 1.71 to 1 GEL( Georgian Lari). In US Dollars it is .47 USD  equivalent to  1 GEL. So in simple math, your dollar multiplied by two, you get 2 GEL. 








5. The Bathhouses - one of the most famous sulfur bathhouses in the world located in Old Tbilisi, Georgia. Your tour in Tbilisi, Georgia is not complete without visiting this thousand years old bathhouses. 

You might be wondering how to get in Georgia ? Georgia Travel

As resident of United Arab Emirates, it is a no visa country. But if your from Philippines going to Tbilisi, there could be a fee to be paid upon arrival. In our case, we bought the package tour from a
travel company online and we were good to go.



Enjoy your trip, don't hesitate to drop any message for suggestions and comments. Sharing is Loving!
