I just came back from georgia
I planned 10 days but i returned after 4 days as it was the worst vacation ever...
People are very rude there and specially if you look arab or middle eastern.
My husband is German and am Arab and we did see the difference in treatment i was asked in the airport a questions about my destination and i was asked to remove my glasses while my husband went through immediatly
We reached there the first day i was grabbed by sttangers on the peace bridge to take a photo by force with their animals when we refused they came hunting us and fighting with my husband we needed to call the police and i was shocked they hanged the phone on me twice coz i speak no georgian after 20 min only i got a call back then they were angry why i left the scene and didnt wait although it was raining and no one cared about the complain
We went to several resturants the highly rated ones and we noticed a rude treatment in most of them if you wana ask about the dishes and dont order immediatly
We stayed in 5 rooms hotel near the public service hall were it was not a hotel as advertised rather a guest house with no security desk at all, the owner irakli was very aggressive after we complained that there is no AC in the room and no bath tub or fridge as advertised and worst of all insects !! We said we gona leave next day he came knocking and shouting on our doors to pay for 10 days and leave if we dont like it when we refused since we stayed for 3 days only he was very angry and brought a stranger to kick us out and asked for 4 days payment and asked us to leave his hotel after 12am MID Night we left coz we were scared on our lifes that he may harm us he even was running behind us after we left which i belive he wanted to harm us but the taxify driver was waiting and we got in the car immediatly we didnt call the police as we knew they wont respond immediatly so went next day yo file a report but they said to get our money back to need to go to court and not the police then they said they dont consider his action as crime since he didnt harm us!! Apparently you need to get stabbed first and nothing is crime over there
This country is not safe at all!! We took flights next day back to dubai
There is a boycot as of now happening in UAE and the ministry of forign affairs is investigating the issues and a note has been issued by them regarding the number of residents in UAE and GCC who are being returned for no reason and the families who are getting split in the airport and returning some of their family members like the father only or the mother only with no reasons
You can check with dubai airport about the number of flights going to georgia that comes back with many passengers returned for no reason
Anyone else from dubai or Gcc faced the same?
