Useful things to know before you go
There is no discrimination between tourists and locals in Armenia
This has gotta be one of our favourite points. We really like how there’s no discrimination between tourists and the locals here in Armenia! Tickets to all attractions in Armenia were priced the same for both locals and tourists, unlike in some other countries where the tourist price is almost 10 times more expensive than the local’s price. Actually, it’s free entry to all the churches in Armenia, which is pretty amazing actually. Only certain attractions such as the Garni Temple below requires a small fee for the entrance ticket.
