It seems to be a bus stop in Choirokoitia - anyone knows if the stop is close to the neolithic site or close to the group of shops on the other side of the highway?
Can you generally trust the timetables of the intercity buses?
Can I pay in a hotel and restaurant with credit card
With the current situation in Cyprus is it safe for tourists there as my family and I will be going there in July?
Hi, What things are there to do in Nicosia other than seeing historic buildings? We will be going in October for a wedding and staying for 4 days. We will have our (then) 3 month old son with us so he might get a bit irritable going round buildings all day...also i only enjoy a certain amount of historic culture at a go! :-) Thanks for any suggestions.
Hi all, My husband and I have been invited to attend a friend's wedding in October which will be held at the Hilton Park Hotel in Nicosia. They have made arrangements for all foreign guests to get a discounted rate at either the Hilton Park Hotel or the Europa Hotel should we wish. However, since flights aren't that cheap already, we're looking into a different hotel which would still be cheaper than the discounted rates and came across the Asty Hotel. It seems to have very positive reviews. Can anyone comment on this hotel? A particular priority for us would be that it is baby friendly since we would be travelling with a 3-month old baby. I tried to find an email address to contact the hotel directly but they only seem to have snail mail or phone number. Also, what would be the easiest way for us to get from the Asty to the Hilton Park for the wedding itself? (Keeping in mind that we would have the baby + pushchair). Is there a bus perhaps we could use? I looked it up on google maps and it says it's a 5 min drive. The wedding starts at 4pm (not sure how long it would go on for...but a mode of transport back would also be required at some point). One other thing....is it easy to get around in Nicosia with a pushchair? For example are buses pushchair friendly, etc? Thanks in advance for any help!!
Hi all, Sorry to be a pain but i really need some advise. My husband has booked a trip to Northern Cyprus for 02/12/11-05/12/11 (for my birthday). I have been searcing the internet as i would ideally like to see South Cyprus too. Can anyone advise me as to what the best way of travel is? If we hire a car can we drive through the border into South or are there restrictions? What is the public transport like? We are leaving on Friday and i think this trip might just be crazy because my husband hasnt looked into anything!! (typical) thank you so much everyone. x
hi please somebody know good hotel in center of nicosia and no far from nightlife please thanks
Hi. I am going to arrive in Cyprus next week. It's my first time to Cyprus and I don't know a single word of Greek. I am staying in Nicosia so I have the following questions: 1. What's the best way to reach Nicosia from Larnaca airport that is not very expensive? Where can I get shared taxis? Do they operate at 19:00? because that's the time I will be arriving. 2. Are transportation prices fixed or haggling is required? 3. Is it easy/safe for an English-only speaker to find his way alone in Nicosia and Cyprus in general? 4. Where can I get a local cell phone line and what's the average cost of internet access? Thanks in advance, Joseph

Hi there, I am travelling to Cyprus to work for a few days soon. I will be working at the following address - Telecommunications Str., Strovolos.However, I cannot find it anywhere on a map (not even google maps!). Am I correct in saying that Strovolos is a suburb of Nicosia? I am looking for a nice hotel near the city centre where it won't take me to long to get to work in the mornings by taxi but its hard to choose a hotel when I don't know where Telecommunications Street is! Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks, Lauren

I am looking for a cheap hostel/apartment/hotel for 2 nights in Nicosea in January. All the online sites I have searched have really high priced hotels. Anyone have any suggestions for me? Thanks.
I'm thinking of booking a holiday to Mikros Gialos for the end of September and would appreciate your advice. Are there any tavernas within walking distance at this time of year? Many thanks
Hi There My name is Amy, I am 25 years old and am studying in Cyprus at the start of September for a Semester, on an Exchange program. I come from Australia and none of the other people on the program are coming until just after the Semester starts. I would love to travel around the Island a bit and check out Paphos, Agia Napa and Larnaca especially. I am based in Nicosia and havent really checked much out yet!! I was wondering if theres anyone around in the same age bracket that is travelling around on their own? It would be awesome to have a travel companion. Otherwise if anyone has got any tips about good places to go in Cyprus when you're on your own, or how to meet other people my age around here that would be awesome!!! Thanks heaps. My email is email@example.com Regards, Amy :)
We're looking forward to our first ever visit to Cyprus, in August. What we aren't so sure about though is just 'how' we make sure our 15 year old son is entertained enough. Right up until this year we've always had two children with us, but daughter dearest has decided she is now far too old to be going on vacation with her middle aged parents, so poor son is left somewhat adrift. He loves swimming, so we know the Water Park will be good for a couple of days. So too, I hope, will the local Nisi Beach be good for some snorkelling. But we're staying for fourteen days.... So.... we thought maybe there might be some beach(es) with waves enough for a relatively good swimmer and his father to try out some body-boarding and/or surfing? Any ideas, anyone? Any other ideas that might grab the interest of our young man? Virtual hugs, and my eternal gratitude, for anyone with useful advice. Chrissie
Dear All, I will arrive with Cyprus Turkish Airways in the morning of 23jun from Istanbul. I will have 24 hours in Northern Cyprus, before flying back on the next morning with Pegasus to Antalya. Is there any public transportation from Ercan airport to Nicosia/Lefkosa? Internet searches resulted that no... How much would a taxi cost? Is there any possibilty to walk (or if it's too far away take a taxi) to a town or village nearby and get public transportation from there? I couldn't find any map of Northern Cyprus which is detailled enough to find an answer to this question. Next point: Where shall I sleep? I thought about getting back to the airport before sunset and sleep there. I guess it's opened round the clock as there are very early morning departures? Or is there any cheap hostel or similar (I'm on a budget) in Nicosia/Lefkosa. If not on the Northern Cyprus side, maybe on the other side? (although I guess I would not be allowed to enter Cyprus coming in from the North, even I have a EU passport). Is it worth to take a bus to the sea just for half a day from Nicosia/Lefkosa? How much would it cost? Is public transportation reliable and safe? Your help is greatly appreciated. Frederic

Is crossing to North Cyprus a straightforward thing these days? Are there issues coming back if you get your passport stamped? What time can you cross from in the morning and do you need to be back by in the evening if you choose to cross for the day?

This is my first posting, so I'm not quite sure how this works yet... Bear with me. I'm travelling to Cyprus on May 7th with my Uncle who has business associates there. He will be in meetings all day, based in Nicosia. I'm basically on my own. I'm looking for suggestions of what to see while I'm there. I do want to spend a day or two just on the beach. My uncle has suggested Nissi Bay. Please leave me any input! Thanks!
