Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Baku

Boat Trips
Gobustan
Gobustan is famed for its petroglyphs; seek and ye shall find.
Sheki
While it may be six or so hours from Baku the mountain town of Sheki is well worth the slog.  Just make sure to fill up with petrol before you hit some pretty damn remote roads.
Absheron Peninsula
Scattered across the Absheron Peninsula are dozens of traditional Bakuvian villages worth checking out; rent a car and stop by a couple one lazy afternoon.
Ivanovka
Ever wanted to get up close and personal with a remote religious sect? Then head to Ivanovka home to such a sect.
Lahij
Looking to escape the city limits? Then head to Lahij a traditional coppersmiths' village two-three hours northwest of Baku.
Beaches
Olimpik Star Centre
Not sure what the difference is between billiards and pool? Don't worry a local will show you; billiards is big business here.
Ultimate Frisbee
Who'd have thought you'd go all the way to Baku and be able to play Frisbee? Enjoy!
Hale Kai Resort
Whether you want to climb a rockface, tear down a dirt track on atwo-wheeler or catch and cook your own dinner, the Hale Kai Mountain Resort has all youradrenaline-pumping activities wrapped up.
Fantasia
Be brave and submit to some vigorous scrubbing and rubbing, Azeri-style...
Baku Entertainment
Getting a strike is oh-so satisfying so if you've a competitive streak unleash the fury over a game - or ten - of bowling.
