Ali, sorry you are incorrect. We live in Batumi and some of these prices are high. You are comparing vacation and not living there. If you go in the summer things are higher for accommodation and food

I have been to Batumi twice. The price here is largely right, although the taxi driver could overcharge from time to time, like eveywhere else
Ali on Jul 19, 2019:
as a tourist I cannot except this the prices that you listed. I have eaten a meal in a restaurant near beach with a glass of wine for 10 € .
Rent an apartment for 2 weeks for 687 without food and service . The Price for 1 sqm near beach is about €1660.
milk and rice price is very high I bought a half liter of milk for 1,20 € , 0,5 kg rice for 2,10 €
I see everything is more expensive than Germany

My experience of Batumi vs Tbilisi makes me understand the comments of Julian about rude behavior. In Tbilisi, I have gotten used to very good service, polite attitudes, correct and cheap prices and have not encountered any rudeness. When I visited Batumi, my experience was very different. I also experienced being overcharged in shops and by taxis. But also rude behavior. I felt uncomfortable in Batumi and returned to Tbilisi. I like it here so much that I have actually chosen to live here for the time being. The culture is different in Adjara, please don't think that it is reflective of the rest of Georgia. Come see Tbilisi and get ready to fall in love with the country ;)

Prices are accurate and incredibly low here. I have lived in a dozen countries around the world and nowhere has come near to Georgia in prices. Quality is good, people are nice, it is safe and the sun keeps shining.

A quote from a British user

"Georgian culture is based on thieving and pretending to be friendly to gain financially from Tourists that they do not like at all.

Gypsy fools. Avoid this country"

Wow! Such a display of intelligence and political correctness. The person who wrote this is not just stupid but also racist. Overgeneralazing much, Mr. Julian? Because in that case I'd be forced to think that every British person is "bloody stupid" and racist. Well done, sir!

On the side note, Georgian people are lovely and Georgia is well known for its hospitality, awesome (and the world's oldest) wine, delicious cuisine and many more. Just a fact that the country just legalized use of Marijuana, tells a lot on its progress!

Prices are accurate on the website and generally everything is cheaper than in any other country I've lived.
