How to do Baku with Holiday Factory

A trip to Baku for the average traveller is mystifying. It has yet to hit the map for those wanting to trek through the world – and see what else is out there.

Thanks to Holiday Factory, we had access to a 3-day trip to Baku over an extended weekend. With a tad bit of research and their tour list, here’s a go-to list to pack for a stay in May:

1. Sports shoes and a bagpack. There’s a vast mountainous area, cultural landmarks and winding city streets. You need to be comfy on the go.

2. May typically has perfect weather in 18-24 degree territory. Once again, pack for comfort mostly but keep aside 1 nifty dress (for the girls) and shirt (for the guys) to grab a traditional dinner at Firuze Restaurant. Although Azerbaijan is a Muslim majority, it maintains a secular identity. People are very accepting and tolerant towards western clothing – excluding of course, mosques and muslim landmarks.

3. Swimwear – depending on the season or how gutsy you are. I was so looking forward to taking a dip in the Caspian Sea. It’s always compelling to see and be in the infinite reaches of sea.

4. Grab the best possible camera you have. Baku is home to a rich history – there’s an exhaustive list architectural monuments and geographic landmarks spread across and near to Baku. I want to capture every detail of what I’m sure will be a hidden gem.
