Azerbaijan Warnings and Dangers

  • Check your visa duration.

    If you get your Azerbaijan visa in Tbilisi check and make sure your duration is 30 days like it should be.

  • Watch your step!

    I've read, I was warned but not till I saw it for myself did I realize how many hazards there were for the simple pedestrian.

They may not always be clean so my advice is that you stop as soon as...

  • Places to avoid

    Don't try to go to Karabagh region...it has been occupied by Armenia for many years, and the last thing this area needs is tourists poking their noses in! Also try not to bring up the subject of Nagorno Karabagh, unless you are willing to join in a very biased argument. Don't go too close to the borders with Daghestan (Russia)....this effectively...
