Armenia is a tiny country, oft-forgotten by travelers due to it being tucked away behind Turkey and its more popular neighbor, Georgia. It’s an ancient and mystical land, and a country still unspoiled by the crowds of mass tourism, even though there are many things to do in Armenia.
Its people are among the friendliest in the world, and it’s a serious hotbed for history. Some sites date back as early as 4,000 BCE. And whether you’re a lover of rolling hills, or prefer traipsing over snow-capped peaks, you’ll find what you’re looking for in the Armenian landscape. To seal the deal: it’s incredibly affordable, making it a perfect destination for budget travelers and backpackers.
Don’t leave Armenia off your bucket list. It can’t be hidden away forever, and the time to visit is now before it’s truly “discovered” by mass tourism.
