We are seasoned Greek travellers, an older couple who like to explore every square inch of where we visit(we don't sunbath) We will pick up a car at the airport and want to stay somewhere that will let us explore the whole island without having to use the same roads constantly. We where thinking of staying in Masthari(apologies if mis spelt) as our base as we don't like really bustling places, is this a good start or would you suggest elsewhere. Thanks in advance
With the recent crisis in Greece does anyone know how easy it is to still pay by credit cards out their in restaurants etc
Also does anyone know if it's easy to exchange money GBP into EURO and if it's a better rate in Greece
What is the situation like with the migrants that have arrived in Kos?
can anyone recommend a car hire firm in Kos town
Is there a bus that goes past this the Lakitira Suites hotel from the airport?
The hotel appears to be 4km west of Kardamena, not at Kardamena as shown by Google maps. This is a link of the possible routes. It may just be easier to hire a taxi, but I was hoping to master the public transport.
Can anyone tell me how much cigarettes are in Kos Town and if they prefer cash, debit card or credit card? Thanks

Hi, I'm 17 - all of my mates are 18 (6 of them) - we all want to go clubbing in Kos but i realise that the publicly drinking /clubbing age is 18 - have I screwed myself over with this holiday or are they relatively chilled in Kos with access to clubs ?

We just returned from trip to Kos. We loved the island and plan to go back there.
But something happened that is worrying me.
We went for a daytrip to Nyssiros is order to see a sleeping volcano. You actualy can enter on of the caldera's. You can see steam and gasses comming out of holes in the caldera. And since it just was raining in Nyssiros there was water in the caldera and you could the water was boiling in the middle.
Most of the people from our group went down into the caldera and all seemed pefectly OK.
Until a man from our group came back with severe burns on his right foot. Seems that the crust of the caldera was quite thin and he stepped on it and went through. Probably in a hole with hot gasses or hot water. His burns were of 2nd degree and really serious, he was in a lot of pain.
I wonder if this happened before. And question the actual safety of the caldera.
Someone have any experience with this??
