Hello there !!! It is nice you choose Georgia as your travel destination. You could carry US dollars and exchange it here in Georgia, because the local currency is Georgian Lari (GEL) 1USD =2.4GEL. Regarding the must see/visit places: Old Tbilisi, Mtskheta - UNESCO heritage site. Kazbegi mountain with church on top. If you are wine-lover visit Kakheti region and taste unique Georgian vine made in Qvevri. It is also depends what is your interests and what you would like to see or visit, If any other tips needed or transportation and arrangement your travel and tours within Georgia, please do not hesitate to contact me. nkasradze@hotmail.com you are more welcome any time. HAVE A NICE SUMMER !

Hi Joelle,

the only valid currency in Georgia is Georgian Lari (gel).
You can easily exchange USD or also pay with credit card at many places though.
