Depending on the time of the year that you arrive in Armenia some foods will be a lot cheaper than others, just look through the marketplace and you will find a lot of great deals.

​Transportation in Armenia is quite accessible. Buses, minivans and metro are available in the capital city. Inside Yerevan you’re not going to have too many difficult getting around but in the countryside you will lose most of your best options.
