I am going to be living in Tbilisi for a few months soon, and I have found 2 apartments that I really like.
1 apartment is on Pekin Street, and it is a bit cheaper than the other one in Vake by $50.
I love both apartments, so what I am going to base the decision on is location. Most importantly I want a neighborhood that has affordable markets and restaurants, and also is centrally located so I can easily reach the other areas of the city. I have heard Vake is nice, but I also read that the only restaurants there are catered to foreigners and so there are not much local Georgian places to eat. And that most of the restaurants are expensive because its a high end neighborhood. Is this true? Or is it possible to find locally priced restaurants in Vake?
Any advice you can offer as to which location would be more appealing to you would be a great help.
