I am not sure if these posts for Azerbaijan are looked at by anyone as replies to other posts seem a little thin on the ground, but hey-ho, someone out there may have some information for me.
I will be working out in Azerbaijan for a few months with my colleague conducting a report on the oil and gas industry. We are both business journalists (funnily enough) and will be based in Baku.
We need to find a place to live, of course. So, would anyone know what part of Baku is best to be located? We would like something that is relatively central so that we can get to meetings easily (unless there is no real heart to the CBD as everything is spread out) and of course, near to the bars and restos, etc.
In addition to the above, since my colleague and I are new to Azerbaijan we would be very grateful for some insights to the country and to the city...such as dress (i.e. is it acceptable to wear westernised clothing), beach attire, beach quality, nightlife, restaurants, dos and don'ts, etc
