Preparing your trip to Yerevan: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

opera 1. It is recommended to explore the center of the city on foot as that is the most comfortable way to see all important landmarks. Pedestrians should not forget about all traffic regulations. It is recommended crossing streets in specially designated places and do not walk along active highways.
2. Travelers wishing to get to the remote areas of the city quickly will hardly find a better transport than metro. It works from 6:30 to 23:00. Fixed-route minibuses are also very popular. They work from early in the morning until late at night.
3. Travelers planning to use taxi services are recommended to specify the price with the driver in advance. Not all taxis have meters, and different taxi companies can have drastically different tariffs. It is also possible to rent a taxi for a whole day. In that case, this service will cost approximately US$20.
4. There are cafes and restaurants on every street in Yerevan. Savvy travelers will be pleased with the choice of budget restaurants and cafes in the city. The quality of food remains high in local dining establishments, so low prices do not mean that the food is bad. At inexpensive cafes, a three-course meal costs approximately US$10.
5. In Yerevan, there are many kiosks that offer different sweet breads and beverages. The national drink called Tan, which is made from milk, is the best way to quench the thirst on a hot day. Copyright
6. Travelers, who plan to buy local carpets, must keep the labels and sales receipts. If they fail to do that, they might be not allowed to export their carpets. The same rule applies to antiquities that can be exported only in case they come with a special certificate.
7. It is better to visit the city’s markets with local currency only. Some sellers might accept foreign currencies, but they will surely apply a low exchange rate. So, it is better to exchange the money in a bank or a private exchange office. These exchange offices are located on all main streets, in shopping centers, and popular shops.
8. There are no limitations regarding clothes in the city. The majority of Yerevan residents wear typical European clothes daily. However, wearing too extravagant outfit on the street or at an important event may cause misunderstanding.
9. The most beneficial way to make international phone calls is to use special phone booths as they usually have the cheapest rate. These booths, as a rule, accept coins and plastic cards.
