    Plug-Adaptors & Electricity in Cyprus

    by globetrott Written Dec 2, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Electricity in Cyprus has 220 Volt, but the plug might be different from the one that you use in your homecountry and so it will be the best to take an adaptor-plug with you, because even the big hotels obviously dont have a single plug in the rooms for the ordinary plugs of Europe.
    Charging your batteries etc. will only be possible when you have the right adaptor like in my photo !

    strange trafic-signs

    It took me a few seconds before I understood this strange combination of trafic-signs, that would never be placed next to each other in another part of Europe according to my experience. The red ring around the white centre will normally mean that ALL vehicles, including the bicycles are forbidden in that side-road,but in Cyprus I saw more of such unlogical combinations.
    The other thing that was confusing in that situation is the fact that I am used to driving right and so normally that sign of "No trafic" would be for the mainroad and for me, BUT Cyprus is driving on the left and so these signs are ment for the side-street on the right !

    What locals do

    Cypriots from other towns of Cyprus when they usually go to Ayia Napa: they share an appartment between 4-6 of them, hire scooters take their FOUKOU, to light the fire in so they can make SOUVLA or SOUVLAKIA. During the day they go to konnos bay or sunrise beach. At night they go to clubs that usually only Cypriots visit like Guru or -2 or bikini bar and then they often visit River reggue before they go to bed if they ever go to bed. THEREFORE IT BECAME SORT OF A CUSTOM. You can try it to see if you enjoy it.

    A warm welcome

    A local custom is definitely friendliness and civility. A warmer more welcoming people I have yet to come across. You will be welcomed and made to feel genuinely welcome. Take the time to have a chat and you will be quickly treated as family!
