Lifestyle

While Georgia is certainly not well known to international expatriates outside of the country, it is popular for those who live there. Georgia is a destination with a rich history and cultural heritage dating back thousands of years. It’s known for its warm and welcoming hospitality to outside visitors, it’s unique dress, traditions and customs and its stunningly beautiful wild and rugged mountainous terrain. Still, Georgia has its challenges. It is a very traditional and patriarchal culture. Expectation on women are very different from that of men. That said, paradoxically, Georgia is also one of a handful of nations in former Soviet block that prohibits discrimination against LGBT people.

Compared to Western Europe, Australia, New Zealand and North America, Georgia is inexpensive destination. Indeed, according to Xpatulator’s July 2016 report, the cost of living in Georgia is well under the international average. This is evident in the prices of a number of goods and services such as healthcare, Internet rates, groceries, restaurant meals, hotels, recreation and alcohol. That said, some items are more pricey such as housing accommodations, and, oddly enough, clothing. Still, all things being equal, the western expatriate should be able to both live comfortably in Georgia as well as save some money.
