Why You Should Visit Baku, Azerbaijan

I visited Baku, Azerbaijan in March 2017 and really enjoyed it.  To be quite honest, I had low expectations going in, but the city caught me by surprise!  In this blog post, I will tell you about my experiences, provide travel tips, and prepare you for what to expect if you are planning a trip to Baku.

But first, watch this short video I made around Baku!

Why did I go to Baku?

The better question is why didn’t I go to Baku? I was already traveling in Moscow, Russia at the time, and it made logical sense to hop on the 3 hour, $175 flight down to Azerbaijan.  It sounded like a fun idea.

Also, as many of you already know, I am planning to visit every country in the world. Azerbaijan was my last country in the Caucasus region, and it happened to be my 100th country overall!
