Waiting time: 20 min
Getting to Kutaisi from Batumi is easy – just follow the main road until the traffic is only exiting the city, write a sign in English and Georgian letters (might take 5 mins to prepare) and wave it off.
Most probably you will have to shoo off some marshrutka drivers and some people who seem to have escaped from a prison just 5 mins ago but eventually you will get a nice ride. Ours was directly to our destination. The drivers here are always driving over the limits, so make sure you buckle up and tilt when cornering the road.
