I slipped naturally into the delights of tour guiding for Indian visitors, working with several tour companies in Azerbaijan.I feel a strong attachment to the city’s very special people, traditions and remarkable places. From the thundering traffic passing 21st-century skyscrapers to the calm, restful greenery of the Botanical Garden and the special historical corners hidden within the maze-like Old City, Baku’s contrasts never fail to astound. And if you want something off-beat, peep into atmospheric courtyards or head south to the former naval district of Bayil. There you’ll find a distinctive architectural canvas along with a series of memorable viewpoints from which you can gaze across the bay from unique and photogenic angles.
