If traveling to Moldova, the best use of your time would be in the capital city of Chisineau. You can take a bus from there to any city however it is a slow trip due to the poor roads and buses. Moldova has very good wine and incredible Champagne. It is cheap and bought in any grocery store. The city is showing signs of transition to modern times. There are new apartments being built and the airport was recently renovated. If you do not like high tourist areas and want to see the old eastern Europe before it is gone then this might be a place to see. Moldova is similar to Romania but just smaller.
