Georgia: Our 12 days Itinerary

We were desirous to travel to Georgia in 2014 but unfortunately at that time Georgian Government was in the process of changing their visa rules, owing to which we had to change our plans and hence traveled to Russia instead.

Soon after Georgia permitted visa free entry for stay up to 3 months for UAE residence holders, we were over joyous and began to plan our much awaited Georgia excursion.

Apart from noodles no food of Mainland China is popular worldwide, but if you travel to India, you will find Chinese food has become an integral part of Indian street food culture. But let me warn you, the Chinese food you eat at Indian streets has no Mandarin connection. It is collaborated with Indian spices and becomes a totally new dish. Chinese Bhel is popular dish in India, which is an Indian version of Indian food item ‘Bhel’ with help of Chinese ingredients. Well, if you are travelling to Mumbai ever, you should definitely visit Irani cafes.
