Ideal duration for your trip
Baku is a city that is impossible to be covered in a day, and you need a minimum of a week for it. But, since this guide is about a day only, we are helping you as per that. As for the best time to visit this wondrous city, we suggest you either visit between April and June or September and October.

The public transport in Baku is one of the cheapest in the world. You can buy a BakiKart for around $1 and get a single ride for a quarter of a dollar only. Moreover, the taxis are also cheap and will charge you a mere $0.76 for a single mile. I recommend you either stay in Icheri Sheher, Khutor or Yasil Bazar
Food & Drinks Expenses in Baku
Food in Baku is one of the bests in the world. If you have been following my guides lately, you are sure to know I like it better than even Turkish Food. Try Azerbaijani Kebabs, as they are a must. You can cover your entire days’ worth of food at $20. You can get food from a supermarket for as low as $5.
Baku does not have much of a nightlife, but there are pubs and bars around. Though alcohol might not exactly be cheap, you can find a beer for $10.
