Roads in Armenia are not in the best condition. It can not be said that it is very bad, but not very good. Some sights will have to be reached by transport with high ground clearance, since there is no asphalt. But the main attractions can be reached on a normal asphalt.

Armenians are known for their hospitality and generosity towards foreigners. If you have a force majeure, you will not be left outside. If you talk with armenian people, you probably will call for a visit.
8. Public transport
Public transport in Armenia is not in good condition. Everything is chaotic, transport is full. It cannot be said that in Armenia public transport is in a very bad condition, but reforms are needed. The government promises a completely new system by 2021.
There are a lot of taxis in Armenia, especially in Yerevan. There are also online taxi services similar to Uber.
This system is quite developed in Armenia. There are different price categories and different levels of service. Sometimes, at the height of the summer season, the most famous hotels are full.
They are rarely found in Armenia. But there are no children beggars in the cities, who in some countries are constantly causing inconvenience.
11. Infrastructure at night
Many supermarkets work 24/7, it is very convenient.
Армения считается достаточно безопасной страной для туризма по данным международных организаций. Стоит отметить что в Армении, в особенности в Ереване крайне много камер наблюдения, которыми следят за нарушителями правил дорожного движения, а также эти камеры помогают в раскрытиях преступлений.
Armenia is considered a fairly safe country for tourism, according to international organizations. It should be noted that in Armenia, especially in Yerevan, there are very many surveillance cameras that follow the violators of traffic rules, and these cameras help in solving crimes.
13. The language barrier
Most of Armenians know Russian and you will manage to talk with them. English is not at the same level. But in respectable establishments there are always employees who know English.
Notes: All this for 2019, if you read this article in a few years, we hope that a lot of the minuses have already been eliminated.
