Travelling to Kos alone for some fun

by Filthymutt

Hey everyone,

I'm 26 and a bit of a spur of the moment kind of guy, i have just booked a week in Kos and i will be traveling alone (as i decided i would have a holiday and booked it with the hour, so my mates cant get the time off). My question is, where is the best place to go to meet new people... I'm looking to tear it up for a week so want to meet people who live for the moment like me :)

I will be arriving July 3rd and staying just outside Kos Town.

Thanks!

If you go to the tripadvisor website and ask your question on the Kos forum I'm sure you'll find exactly what you're after.

Travel Tips for Kos

Exploring the countryside

by Kristina1701

If you want to experience the "origianl Kos" then I can highly recommend to hire a car for a few days and to explore the countryside. Enjoy the scenery and stop in a few of these villages where it seems as if time had stopped. Be careful when driving though, goats might be crossing the street! ;-)

Great Asian food in Kos Town

by SWFC_Fan about Cheers: Indian and Chinese

Cheers Indian and Chinese Restaurant is located on Averof Street on the outskirts of Kos Town on the road leading to Lambi. It is located just a 5-10 minutes walk from Kos Town's harbour.

I ate here one night during my visit to Kos in May 2006 and was very impressed by both the choice of meals available and the quality of the food.

The restaurant has both an outdoor seating area and a few tables indoors. The staff are very friendly and attentive........unfortunately they were so attentive that I never got a private moment to take photos of my food for VT!

Check out the restaurant's website on www.cheers-kos.gr for a full menu, photos of the restaurant and a map and directions for locating it.

As the name suggests, this restaurant specialises in Chinese and Indian cuisine....but it does also offer a selection of Greek and international dishes.

Here is a selection of the meals available:

Chinese menu

Appetizers: Spring rolls (3 Euros), BBQ ribs (4 Euros), wontons (3 Euros), tempura (9 Euros).

Soups: Hot and sour, wonton, chicken and sweetcorn, seafood (between 3 and 4 Euros).

Pork: Sweet and sour, curry sauce, with pineapple etc (approx. 6 Euros)

Beef: Mongolian, Szechuan, with peppers etc (approx. 6.50 Euros)

Chicken: Sweet and sour, chop suey, satay, lemon etc (approx 5.50 Euros)

Prawns: Sizzling, curry, sweet and sour etc (approx 12-13 Euros)

Desserts: Fried banana, fried pineapple, ice cream (approx. 3 Euros)

Indian menu

Appetizers: Veg. samosas (3.50 Euros), onion bhajis (3.50 Euros), veg. pakoras (3 Euros), poppadums (2 Euros).

Curries: Available in mild, medium, hot and very hot. With chicken (7 Euros), beef (8.50 Euros), prawns (12 Euros), vegetarian (5 Euros).

Types of curry: Dansak, Bhuna, Karahi, Bangalore, Rogan Josh, Madras, Vindaloo, Jalfrezi, Samber, Masala, Korma, Passanda, Dopiaza.

Biryani: Prawn (12 Euros), tandoori (8.50 Euros), Kashmiri mix (12 Euros). Other cuisine

Greek - Greek salads, gyros, souvlaki, moussaka.

Italian - Spaghetti (bolognaise, carbonara)

English - Pukka pies.

Drinks

Tsingtao beer (3 Euros), Cobra beer (4 Euros), local beers (4 Euros), sake (180ml for 6.50 Euros), bottle of wine (9 Euros), soft drinks (2 Euros).

I opted for:

Hot and sour soup - Cost: 3.50 Euros

Very good as hot and sour soups go! I've had a fair few hot and sour soups during my various travels and this one was hot enough and sour enough to satisfy my high standards!

Chicken Szechuan - Cost: 6.50 Euros

A decent sized portion, well cooked and good quality chicken. Far from the spiciest Szechuan I've ever tasted (it could definitely have done with a bit of extra kick), but tasty enough nonetheless.

Egg fried rice - Cost: 2.50 Euros

A standard dish of egg fried rice. Just about enough for one person.

Honeycomb with honey and nuts - Cost: 3.50 Euros

Not the honeycomb that I am familiar with (ie the inside of a Cadbury's Crunchie bar) but rather, a plate of small doughnuts covered with a generous helping of Greek honey and ground nuts. Definitely one for those with a sweet tooth!

Mythos beer (500 ml bottle) - Cost: 4 Euros

Pretty expensive as beers go in Greece....especially since the same bottle could be purchased for 0.80 Euros in a supermarket.

Excellent quality Chinese and Indian food. A great selection of dishes and friendly service. Highly recommended.

Hipprocates Tree

by sandysmith

This huge plane tree stands in front of the Castle of the Knights, in the centre of Kos town, you can't miss it! Hippocrates (c. 460 BC–380 BC) the ancient Greek physician, an outstanding figures in medicine of all time and regarded as the father of medicine. Well it is believed that he planted this tree some 24 centuries ago - although they only have a life span of some 400 years! Well whether any roots of offshoots of those roots are stil here its considered sacred and is fenced off accordingly - both for protection and support . On the left hand side a fountain can be seen for the washing before the muslims went to the mosque.

All For Free

by steventilly

How can all of this history be for free?
If this was at home they'd have to wall the whole thing in and have razor wire around it to prevent it all being
Stolen
Vandalised
Used as a drug den
It really brings home the culture differences that exist between us.
