Here’s a fantastic fare from LOT Polish’s 90th Anniversary sale. Fly from Los Angeles to Tbilisi, Georgia for $542 roundtrip this winter or spring. Tourism is on the uptick in this affordable country, and there are no shortages of sites to keep you busy. If you're a foodie, the khinkali (dumplings) and khachapuri (cheese-filled bread) are worth the trip alone; also Georgian wine is top-notch as they’ve been perfecting it for thousands of years. As an example, I was able to find seats departing LAX on Friday, March 8 and returning from TBS on Saturday, March 16, 2019.
