Travel, Currency and Money saving tips for Azerbaijan

Azerbaijan’s national currency is the Manat, divided into 100 gapiks (q) with coins available in 10q, 20q and more rarely 50q denominations. The manat is written with a M symbol that looks like the Euro € swivelled through 90 degrees.The official language is Azerbaijani, the country was a well-known tourist spot in the 1980s. However, the fall of the Soviet Union, and the Nagorno-Karabakh War during the 1990s, damaged the tourist industry and the image of Azerbaijan as a tourist destination.It was not until the 2000s that the tourism industry began to recover, and the country has since experienced a high rate of growth in the number of tourist visits and overnight stays. In the recent years, Azerbaijan has also becoming a popular destination for religious, spa, and health care tourism. During winter, the Shahdag Mountain Resort offers skiing with state of the art facilities.

A large number of banks offer exchange services. Especially in central Baku you can find remarkably low buy-sell rate splits for Euros, Pounds, Roubles and especially US Dollar cash. Reconverting any extra mantas back to dollars or Euros is not problematic. Rates at hotels tend to be significantly poorer. Cash machines are widespread throughout central Baku and increasingly common all across Azerbaijan with at least one ATM in even the smallest regional centre.Few cities in the world are as safe as Baku. Petty crime is minimal. Locals with bulging wallets sticking out of a rear pocket seem blissfully unconcerned getting onto a packed full public bus.
