January falls into Georgia’s low season, often with freezing temperatures at night. Most places in Georgia will be experiencing snow, with the exception of Tbilisi. Despite the cold temperatures, January can be great for exploring Tbilisi without the crowds while making the most of off peak prices. Enjoy a puppet show that is usually on tour for the rest of the year, or indulge in khachapuri, Georgia’s national dish.
On 2 January, partake in Bedoba, a unique tradition whereby you are obliged to treat yourself in order to set the tone for the rest of the year ahead. The Alilo Parade takes place on 7 January, Orthodox Christmas Day, with processions through the streets of Tbilisi.
