Plan Perfect Five Nights Armenia Tour

Armenia is beautiful little nation, a landlocked country of about 3 million people in the Caucasus Mountains with number of interesting places to visit. It's a place for Nature lovers, honeymooners, hiking adventurers, and most noticeably culture and history lovers as Armenia is counted among one of the oldest countries in the world with a written history of approx. 3500 years, having a presence of standing memories and the remains from the 1st century.

A perfect Armenia tour package would be 5-6 Days. In case if you are an adventurer then you may consider staying longer.

Where to Stay in Armenia?

It would be better to book your hotel in Armenia just around Yerevan Downtown. The major attraction of the Downtown is Republic Square and right opposite to it you can see the Marriott hotel, which will help you to know the location of the hotel on Google maps as landmark and to calculate the distance of your hotel from the downtown area. I generally reach hotels by navigating on Google Maps. There is no point to stay out of the Downtown area in Armenia as you would feel isolated in a corner. Staying in the Downtown area is always preferred giving you simple walk-able access to nearby cafes, Restaurants, Parlours, Clubs, and Shopping areas.

For back packers and solo travellers there are a lot of choices in 3 Star category, hotel, hostels and apartments. For Armenia Family tours and the individuals who are worried about hotel amenities and nearby facilities, I would recommend them to stay in 5 Star properties which are reachable in huge numbers in Yerevan City.

What to Eat and Drink in Armenia?

I always love to try local cuisine when exploring a new destination and I really loved the Armenian food, but if you don’t like to try something new risking your taste buds then you’ll find plenty of restaurants serving all kinds of international cuisines and fast food. A normal meal in Armenia would cost you around $4. In my Armenia tour there are around 20 co-traveller who booked Armenia Group Tour Package from Delhi. And 8 of them became my good friends who loved and had local Armenian cuisine daily with me.

How to Travel in And Around Armenia?

Taxis are quite cheap, easily accessible and the best thing is they run by meter, so there is no chance of being fooled. You can travel in Metro, Tram and Buses like a local. By chance we met one college group there, who were just out for Yerevan City Tour, and they insisted us to join their group for a day and luckily that day we were free. We really enjoyed exploring city like locals that too with good Armenian friends.

How is the Nightlife in Armenia?

Most of the shops remain open till 10 pm. Cafes, Restaurants & lounges are open till 12am with some superb spots which are not closed till late hours. Clubs remain open late night till the crowd is there. I will surely recommend some of the best places in Armenia, if you are a nightlife lover:

Royal Cascade Restaurant has the amazing panoramic view of the Yerevan City. 

For Delicious Armenian Food you must visit Lavash Restaurant. Paparrazi Club & Café, The Venue, El Skybar, Stoyka, and Calumet are some other good options to enjoy best Nightlife in Yerevan.

Souvenir Shopping:

In Yerevan city there are many good options to shop for Souvenirs and Handicrafts. For shopaholics Dalma Garden Mall and Yerevan Mall are the best places to visit.

1. Lake Sevan: The pearl of mountainous and true fascination of Armenia is Sevan Lake, which is one of the world's biggest high altitude fresh-water lakes.

2. Tsaghkadzor: The wonderland filled with forested mountains. In winters Tsaghkadzor is a popular Ski resort with several levels of ropeways taking you to the mountains. In summer it’s become pleasant place to spend the afternoon in nature and enjoy the sunshine.

3. Khor Virap Monastery: The Best point to relish the most magnificent view of the elegant biblical mountain Ararat glowing with its 2 white peaks. You can clearly observe the borders of Turkey and Armenia from this point. This is the place where I appreciated nature the most.

4. Noravank Monastery: Built in the 13th Century this monastery offers a fabulous view of the rocks from the panoramic square.

5. Areni Winery & Wine Tour: Must visit the ancient winery built in a Cave from the 4th Century after that explore the modern wine factory where you can taste aged Wine and the homemade seasoned Vodka and Brandy.

6. Garni Temple: The only left pagan temple in Armenia which is devoted to the God of Sun – Myrth is a blend of Greco-Roman and Armenian styles.

9. Yerevan City Tour: City tour is incomplete without visiting the Republic Square, Yerevan Vernissage, a large open-air market that sits along Aram and Buzand streets, just at a walking distance from Republic Square metro. The market was opened in the 1980s by a local artists and sellers to display and sell their work.
