The next time you’re in the mood for a trip to a jaw-droppingly gorgeous country that’s filled with mountain vistas and world class cuisine and alcohol, you don’t need to scrimp and save for a trip to a country nestled in the Alps. Consider, instead, a cost-effective and no less world-changing vacation to scenic, lovely Armenia. The often overlooked nation has tons of activities to keep even the most discerning traveler happy and contented through the duration of your stay. That said, it’s also possible to get into a little bit of trouble when you’re tromping through the beautiful country. If you’d like to steer clear of the hassles, here are some things not to do when you’re hitting the road in Armenia.
1. Don’t Leave Without Doing Some Research First
Be honest with yourself; if you’re an American, the odds are said that your average history class didn’t exactly spend tons of time talking about the finer points of Armenian history and culture. So, before you travel to the country do a little bit of research on its past and present. Not only will you learn a little something, but the locals will appreciate the passing familiarity with their culture.
