So, my friends, you are looking for the cheapest travel destination. Well, it is in the Asia continent but actually, it is situated between Asia and Europe because it is in the mountainous Caucasus region between them.
Armenia is a hidden country in all Asian countries. Many of you have never heard the name or don’t know the exact place of Armenia on the World map.
Let us discuss, why it is a cheap country to visit?
You will get hotels in Yerevan approximately USD 20 per night. Try to book with Hostelworld.com, generally, you get hostels and guest houses start from 10$. Well again depends upon property location, it could be a little bit higher side, if you are looking at it in the center of the city.
Taxies are cheaper than in Europe, and the USA. The normal tariff is AMD 600.00 i.e for (first 5 km) it is approximately USD 1.2XX, then for every 1 km, it is 100 dram extra. Alternatively, you can use taxi mobile apps like GG, or Yandex which are cheaper and safer.
You will find public transport also cheaper to move around the city. the recommendation is always, to use public buses or Metro trains, but not private transport, Generally, the rates they charge are the same approx 100 Darm, which in USD comes approximately USD 0.20.
Food is also cheap, of course, if you’re not eating in a luxurious restaurant. You can have dinner within USD10. Besides that, there are many food courts with tasty dishes so you can save money on food, instead of trying the best Armenian dishes.
Fruit prices are lower and yes, they all are organic, so try Armenian fruits if you happen to be here. It would e a little bit costlier, in Yerevan, outside of the capital the prices get lower.
When to visit
Peak season is summer (Jun–Aug), which is warm and dry and features events such as the Yerevan International Film Festival (Jul) and the Extreme Sports Festival (Lake Sevan, Aug). Winters are cold and snowy, and the ski resort of Tsakhkadzor is open from mid-Dec through Mar or Apr.
