Hi folks! With my wife we spent pleasant 6d in AZ last August. Our itinerary: night train from Tbilisi - Baku & side trip – Quba - Xınalıq - Baku - Şəki – back to GE. While Baku is an interesting place it is well worth seeing the rest of the country as well so you don’t get a too one-sided impression. Travelling is easy, transport works well.

I've read conflicting reports on whether it's worth buying the ticket for the Baku-Tbilisi train in advance online, or whether it's perfectly fine to turn up on the day and get it in Baku?
