    • Help me - in need of a day party place?

      Agios Nikolaos Yesterday

      Hi all, I was wondering if you could help me. My friend is having her wedding in Crete at the end of the summer, we are staying in Agios Nikolaos and we would like to have a 'hen' party for her. We do not want anything 'tacky', a place that is sophisticated like Ocean Club, Blue Marlin, Nikki Beach - them sort of places. Is there anything like this around this area, we do not mind travelling. Thanks so much!

      Bus: Thessaloniki to Sofia

      Thessaloniki Yesterday

      Haven't posted it yet. Anything else I should add?

      My wife and I are going to be in Thessaloniki in late September and from there, we are heading to Sofia. I see that there is now train service between the two cities, but I think the bus still looks to be shorter and arrives earlier, which is favourable for us.

      I have a few questions about the bus: 1. Where exactly do you catch the bus? Wikitravel says 'You can catch this bus if you continue on an imaginary line at the end of Maria Luisa street. It meets in front of the "cafe" and just a few meters to the left of the entrance to the WC.' Is that correct?

      2. Generally, how is the bus travel on this line? Any idea on how many washroom stops it makes?

      3. We arrive in Thessaloniki four days before departing to Sofia. If we pick up tickets when we arrive, will there likely still be some available? Where do we purchase these tickets?

      Thanks in advance!

      Data plan for iPhone in Greece

      Greece Jul 9, 2014 at 4:49 PM

      I always get a local sim card whenever I travel. But have sometimes had to put up with some limitations. For example in Italy, we were only able to get one type of prepaid plan because we were tourists, and were not able to choose from a few different ones.

      I will be using the data plan extensively since we will be winging it for two weeks with a rental car, and will need to search for sites, hotels etc, and I have to have to access my emails 24/7. I have looked at the websites of the main providers, but none of them have proved helpful with package details and prices. Any help would be great.

      Will be landing in Athens, so I'm sure I can find any store once we're in the city, I don't need to get it from the airport.

      I've been told that the best place to stay in Heraklion is on the 25th August Street. Can someone recommend some hotels there? Or would I find better hotels elsewhere? My budget is approx. Euro150 per night.
      In Chania I've been told that we should be staying on the harbour... is it a good suggestion? Budget remains the same, i.e. Euro150 per night.

If possible I'd like to be within walking distance of the museum and the main bus stop that is located by the waterfront. It must be a private room though, no dorms.
