Cab's and Sailing to Bodrum

by Bril1815

Hi. Since I'm going to Kos in a couple of days I have a few questions. I hope someone can help me.
I'm arriving at Kos airport very early, will there be cabs or buses to take me and my friends to Kos Harbour? Can anybody give an indication of how many euro's that will cost?
Is it possible to go to Bodrum with a rented yacht? Do you have to go through customs on Kos beforehand? And is it possible to go back the day after?

I hope you understand my questions!
Thanx in advance.

Hi

You should be able to get a taxi from Kos airport to Kos Town easily enough. I arrived there some time after midnight and there were taxis waiting outside.

As for the cost: you'll be looking at about 25 Euros. The driver charged me 20 Euros because he dropped another couple off en-route (and presumably charged them a similar amount!) and gave me a 5 Euro discount.

I'm not sure whether you can rent a yacht to get from Kos to Bodrum, but if so, then you would have to pass through both Greek and Turkish customs. The journey between Kos and Bodrum isn't too long and there are loads of daytrips available (on yachts, hydrofoils and ferries) if you are unsuccessful in renting a yacht yourselves.

Have a great trip!

@ Jonathan
Thanx! That was very helpfull! It leaves me with another question, though:
Since I'm going with a party of 16 ppl, I was wondering wether the 25 euro is per person or per cab, for then it maybe wiser to set something up in advance (I had an offer for a busdrive for 200 euro).
Anybody?

Hi

The price would be per cab. As there are 16 of you, you might be better getting the bus - or perhaps pre-booking 4 cabs.

I've just had a look at my Kos tourist guide and the number for the taxi station is:

(+30) 22420 22777

You could perhaps try calling ahead to arrange for a handful of cabs to be waiting for you, or maybe give them a call from the airport when you arrive.

Good luck!

Travel Tips for Kos

Rent a scooter or a motorcycle

by SunSeeker011

Rent a scooter or a motorcycle to explore the whole island of Kos rather than a car. It will give you a freedom to get to all historical, natural and other sites of interest within less than ten days.

PLANE TREE OF "HIPPOCRATES"

by balhannah

In the centre of Kos island in front of the Castle of Knights stands a huge old plane tree, known as the ‘Hippocrates plane tree’. It is said that the Hippocrates plane tree was planted by this famous Greek physician, who used its shade to teach his students in this place. As the tree is 500 years old, it is not the one that Hippocrates planted, since he lived around the 5th century BC. Therefore, it is said to be descendant of that one.
This plane tree has a perimeter of twelve metres.

A wall with metal railing prevents it from extending excessively and stops people from climbing it. The wall has Turkish ornaments on one side and on the other, there is a historic white engraved tap in Arabic language.

The tree has made history around the world, since some of its cuttings or seeds went to several destinations as gifts to the National Library of Medicine in the United States, in which its seeds have been planted in 1961. The Department of Medical Genetics at the University of Glasgow, the Michigan Medical School, and the Sydney's School of Rural Health in Australia.
During summer, there are also some events related to Hippocrates plane tree.

On September the 5th, there is a tradition for housewives making two wreathes, one with old leaves, and the other with new ones. The old one must be taken into the sea, while the new one has to be put on the shore. This one symbolizes the beginning of the year, and must be hold until forty waves lap it.
Once it is done, housewives come back to the tree with the wreath, holding some pebbles and sea water in pannikins while they grab the tree, which supposedly assure them health and a long life. Once at home again, the ritual continues, as the wreath must be put on some religious icons, and sprinkle them with the rest of the sea water.

Extensive

by steventilly

The castle ruins are very extensive. Unless you whizz around without paying very much attention to anything (including the wonderful views you can get) it will take at least two hours to explore the castle. The whole thing is surrounded by a curtain wall that you can pretty much circumnavigate. Contained within this there are several different levels and open areas that you can wander around. The castle is purely a ruin and there are no exhibition rooms or anything to see though (and very little cover if it's very hot). There are toilet facilities within the castle.

A bit of history and sun

"The Historic Greece"

Greece is a funny place... Nevermind the war..the earthwakes or the british holiday makers.... it still manage to have a bit of history in every single corner of its soil.
Kos is the classic example of the british holiday resort in Europe. It has been invaded by brits looking for sun and seaside throughout the years. However it still has that romantic atmosphere of a place surronded by greek and roman rests.
