How they differ is described below, and we will consider one of these differences now - the payment method. So, in minibuses, the passenger pays for the fare only in cash to the driver. In buses - only with a special transport card, we will tell you more about it. Batumi travel plastic card is called Batumi Card.

Batumi cannot be called a shopping center even within Georgia. For clothes and shoes, it is better to go to Tbilisi - there you can find things from interesting Georgian designers, but in Batumi they sell mostly the same things as in Russian shopping centers, as well as many inexpensive clothes from Turkey. But shopping with a national flavor here will definitely be pleasant: it is worth bringing souvenirs from Batumi, inexpensive local and Turkish gold, the famous Minankari cloisonne enamel, as well as all kinds of gastronomy: cheese, churchkhela, wine and chacha.
