Travel Tips for Rhodes (Island)
Learn a few words of Greek!
The Greek people are warm and enchanting- just learn to say 2 or three words and they will be so kind and helpful. I can only say Kalimera (good morning) ,Kalispera good evening , and efharisto (thank You) and they immediately were so happy and pleased, so try to do this and you will not be sorry..
Lindos acropolis is one the amazing places i have ever seen.
After reaching Lindos (see transportation) you starting climbing to the top of the acropolis ruins.
the climbing is quite hard because there are many stairs.
You can take a donkey for the climbing.
After reaching to the top of the hill you are amazed from the ruins and from spatacular view.
Pack light or forget the bargains
Pack light light LIGHT. Limit yourself to one piece of luggage and a carry-on, then maybe pack an empty bag or backpack to carry back your souvenirs, new clothes and cheap booze. If you're worried about tipping the scales coming back, dump heavy toiletries like shampoo and sun lotion.
Still wary about the weight? Stuff your carry-on full of the heavy stuff because the airport staff hardly ever weigh them. The only carry-on I've ever had weighed was a backpack, probably because it's bigger than your usual carrier bags, bags for life and handbags. ***This was before the recent ban on carrying liquids into the cabin***
STILL too heavy? Time to start putting on layers and layers of clothes! Lay out the clothes you want to wear before packing, then take half. I over-estimated how many socks to pack...I ended up not wearing ANY because I had sandals on all the time.
You're not dining with the ambassador or going to the opera, so one dressy shirt for nights out will be plenty. Otherwise shorts and T-shirts will be enough.
It can be fun shopping for cheap clothes once you're there if you're desperate for a new outfit. Sun creme was ludicrously expensive in Rhodes, even the cheap generic brands imported from the UK. Stock up at home as you'll be slathering yourself twice a day every day! Bring lots of camera batteries, you'll run through them quickly and they can be expensive to buy locally. A British battery recharger should work fine although you'll need a plug adaptor for the pins. Rhodes remains a duty-free holiday destination, meaning alcohol and cigarettes are incredibly cheap. I'm talking 1L bottles of brand name spirits for about the third of what you'd pay in Britain. When shopping, avoid glass bottles and look for special plastic containers. A 1L glass bottle of spirits weighs more than 2 litres of the same spirit in plastic bottles! Some shops will also decant the spirit into a plastic bottle or sell the bottles separately which is a life saver for low-cost lushes like us!
The island of Kos is one of the most beautiful, with verdant fields and tree-clad mountains, surrounded by miles of sandy beach. All this beauty has not gone unnoticed and Kos suffers from the effects of mass tourism; its beaches are often crowded, most of its seaside town have been recklessly overdeveloped, and the main town is noisy and busy.
Flying to Rhodes
The airport of Rhodes is situated at the west coast, 15 km away of the city of Rhodes. Charter flights from many European cities go there - we had the impression that most came from Germany! The airport is a little one, but you'll find several shops and a cafeteria inside.
At arrival everything went really quick: we were brought to the terminal building by bus (it wasn't a long distance!), and got our baggages very fast. At departure, everything took much longer, as lots of planes were leaving. You first had to pass the baggage check which went rather fast although there had been a long queue. Then we waited at the check-in counter, which took rather long. Also, for a later flight, they weren't able to open a check-in counter... The security check then is upstairs, and this was fast again.
