Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia
Our US friends and even Google knowingly nod “Ah, you are going to the last of the original Thirteen Colonies.” Nope. In fact, we are talking about Georgia country, not Georgia state.

So, where the heck is Georgia? It is a tiny fiercely independent country located at the intersection of Europe and Asia and a former Soviet republic. Equally important, Georgian history had been heavily influenced by the fact that it is situated on the famous Silk Road.

Every trip begins with research. That’s where our worldwide Travel Resources shine. Sorted out what you must do before leaving? Travel Planning is next.

Drinking Tap Water in Georgia Warning

There is a discrepancy in reports regarding drinking water in Georgia.Locals say that the tap water is safe to drink. Indeed, Georgians have been drinking it their entire lives and developed an immunity to certain bacteria strains.

However, diarrheal diseases (i.e., salmonellosis, shigellosis, and giardiasis) are relatively common even among locals. Georgians have frequent bouts of diarrhea and consider it normal, that is why they don’t mention it.

You might get lucky… or not 🙁 Therefore, better be safe than sorry.

Just assume that for a foreigner it is not safe to drink the tap water in Georgia.
