There are two tourist trains in Kos - the green one does a city tour (not taken by us as it was fairly compact to walk around) and a blue train which makes the 4km trip out to Asklepieion archaelogical site.
Ticket prices are 3.50 euros for the round trip - well worth it if short on time or on a day trip like we were.
We hired a car for the day and drove around the island, one place that I would love to go back to and stay there was Tingaki.
The resort doesnt really have much in it, but the beach is beautiful. Very narrow and sandy, with shallow waters.
There is a small shop where you can purchase drinks and snacks.
And as you enter the resort theres a huge shop which looks almost like a hypermarket...inside they sell the Greek statues in all different sizes at bargain prices!
Its well worth a visit just for the beach.
The Eastern Gate stands between the Agora and the seafront. It looks surprisingly intact and modern, and not very imposing. This was the way we most often entered the Agora as it was close to our favourite bakery shop, and the Agroa is a great place to eat a picnic!
When you go to Kos it's definitely to spent time in the sun on one of the many beaches.
Here's the beach seen from the waterside
When in Kos take the opportunity to sail out to one of the small islands with more private beaches.
When there isn't high sea I'm sure the sail would have been easier to enjoy, but it was worth it to finally get there :-)
Finally arrived at the island and it's time to have some fun in the sun ;-)
