The next time you’re in the mood for a trip to a jaw-droppingly gorgeous country, consider a cost-effective and world-changing vacation to scenic, lovely Armenia. However, don’t forget these 5 things NOT to do with your money in Armenia.
1. Don’t Let the Shop Owners Up Sell You
In Armenian shops, the owners will likely try to sell you anything you look at or touch and even invent a history of the item you’re considering. If you’re not interested, politely tell the merchant and move on to something else.
2. Don’t Forget to Tip
In a lot of European countries, tipping isn’t expected. That’s not the case in Armenia regardless that most tabs will add on taxes anyway it’s still the custom to leave a little something extra. Usually $1 USD is enough.
3. Don’t Use American Currency
In Armenia, they’re pretty strict about using the local currency, the dram. However, exchange markets are everywhere and the dram is a pretty inexpensive currency.
4. Don’t Miss Out on the Shopping in Yerevan
Armenia is a fairly inexpensive city, and no matter your budget, the shopping in Yerevan has something you’re going to love, so make sure to look around and find something fun before heading out into the countryside.
5. Pay Cab Drivers 1000 Dram, No Matter Where You Go!
It’s $2 for you but a big deal to them. If you’re being transported from one location to another through the traffic of Armenia, then the cab driver has earned their money. Go ahead and make it worth their time and effort.
