Batumi is the capital city of the Autonomous Republic of Ajara in the country of Georgia. Its coastal location and sub-tropical climate make it a popular city for vacationers across the Caucasus. It's the party capital of the region with a night life to match which increasingly includes big name international DJs on the beach-front clubs. Expect to party on the beaches with Russians, Armenians, Azerbaijanis, Turks and, of course, Georgians.

- Nurigeli Lake.

- Batumi Botanical Garden, (To the north of a city. Take shuttle bus no. 1 along the coast north until the endpoint, where you find some refreshment stalls.). Georgia has a remarkable tradition of (royal) botanical gardens. It is a quiet spot, next to the Black Sea on a high cliff and it both green and cool. Plan on a visit here to take a half day to nearly a full day as it is very large.

Popular events in Batumi in the near future
Batumi and its vicinity is one of the important tourism and resort zones on the Georgian Black Sea littoral. The climate is humid subtropical. The low annual range of temperature, with a mild winter and warm summer is a characteristic of the city and of the Georgian coast as well. The average annual temperature is 14.5C. The average temperature in January, the coldest month, is 7.1C and in August, the warmest month, 23.2 C. The annual precipitation is 2560 mm. Showers are frequent. It rarely snows but when it does, the snow melts easily. The average annual temperature of the sea is 16.7 C at the shore.
Walk along the 'Bulvar' and watch the beach. During daytime families and youngsters play, during nighttime it is the favourite place for couples and party-goers. There are a number of restaurants and bars both on the beach and a little inland. The area is generally safe, but watch out for pick-pocketing.
Western Georgia has plenty of local flavors, but in Batumi the dish you must try is a special kind of khachapuri named acharuli khachapuri (Ajarian khachapuri) that resembles a Viking boat, with the cheese all mixed up with an egg in the center. Avoid this one if you have high cholesterol, but you'll be missing out — it's absolutely delicious.
- Boulangerie (ბულანჟერი), M. Abashidze Street 11 (near the corner of Mazniashvili Street). A French-style bakery/cafe which looks quite posh but has much lower prices than similar places in Tbilisi. A very nice cappuccino or latte is 3 lari. There are many cakes, croissants, etc. They have free WiFi but lately it hasn't been working and the staff don't seem to know how to reset the modem.
- Cafe La Vita Batumi (on Rustaveli Avenue, across the park from the Theater.).
- Cafe Literaturuli, K. Gamsakhurdia St 18 (near Europe Square (formerly Era Square)). This upscale bookstore-cafe has a number of branches in Tbilisi (in Kala, Vake, Vera, and Saburtalo), but the Batumi location is all the more attractive given the relative dearth of good and service-oriented restaurants in Batumi. Coffees, cakes, and basic Georgian sandwiches (plus khachapuri and lobiani) all available, although the menu seems more like a guideline to what might be available on any given day rather than a list of what's actually in the kitchen.
- Press Cafe, Melashvili Street (on the coastal road right next to the Ukrainian restaurant), ☎ 7 52 79. Mon - Sun: 10:00-01:00. It has fast Wifi (for Batumi) and cheap food and drinks, but beware at some point you will be kicked out suddenly for a school group!
- Privet iz Batumi, 39 Abashidze (near Europe Square (formerly Era Square)). This charming "colonial Russia" theme cafe is a Batumi institution, with Georgians as well as foreigners peopling its picturesque outdoor tables. The menu is short on hot dishes, but the many kinds of blinis are delicious.
- San Remo Restaurant (on the seaside, at the south end of the Batumi Boulevard walking path). Elegant, with good Georgian and international food.
- Eredeli's Bar (ერედელის ბარი), N. Baratashvili St. 1 (Down the stairs to a door with no sign and no name on the diagonal street just next to Europe Square (formerly Era Square) where the monument to Medea and the Golden Fleece is.). A very cool bar that attracts the cool locals and expat English teachers. There are no signs and you might have to ring the doorbell on nights with live music, but it's not a private club. Very nice and friendly staff and they have the best cha cha I've tasted. The Caesar salad is also excellent. It's also a gallery and it has WIFI.
- Metro Bar, Melashvili st. 11, ☎ 8 422 27 30 42. A nice but small bar that often has live music and attracts the cool locals as well as expat English teachers.
- Vinyl Bar, Dumbadze str. (on Europe Square (formerly Era Square), near the Iranian and Azerbaijani consulates), ☎ +99593331499. Small, Cozy Place to hang out for Beer, Pizza and Live Music. Great Staff, Great Service. A sweet bar ran by sweet people.
Note that as per usual in Georgia, prices are almost always slightly higher in the supermarkets than in the small family-run shops. This is counter to what most westerners will be used to. The difference is about 5% to 10%.
- Goodwill Supermarket, Chavchavadze Avenue. Many goods not available in smaller shops. Many of the products come from Germany.
