I hope to go to Kherson at the end of this month,like others, I have met a nice lady on the internet (I hope) I suppose I will fly to Odessa? and then (as mentioned here previously) take a bus or Taxi to Kherson, does any one know the current prices? is it in US dollars?
Also, there seems to be only one Hotel (Fregat)whats it like? or should I book an apartment for 5 nights?
Any suggestions on entertaining a lady in Kherson, or should I leave it to her?
Also, is wearing a tie really important to their dress code? I normally wear a suit with an open shirt, is this impolite? Or jeans and casual shirt? (Im a young 50)lol.
Can't say wether they are good or bad but just an option. Entertainment in Kherson - I do not think this is the place for it, boring city as to me. So maybe she will chose somthing besides nightclubs and restaurants. Dress code - the most important thing is you comfort so feel free to be casually dressed.
Haha! Nice to know the girls like sex and insist on condoms! I guess the Ukrainian girls are the same.
Well, thanks for the replies guys!
I will bear in mind all the pearls of wisdom, especially the condoms ones!
Any other info about kherson and apartments etc, greatly welcomed.
There is actually a brand new and really nice and comfortable new hotel at the main railway station. As you stand in fron of the station with your back to it, look to your right and the hotel is above a cafe/cake shop. It is a bit motel-like but it is very new and comfortable.
I don't remember the name or how much we paid - poss around40 US for a double room for one night. It is five minutes walk into the centre of Kherson from there. i have seen Fregat - this is much nicer.
Thanks [VT member 9d849], I might take an aoartment though as I have been told that the lady I am going to meet may be mistaken for a prostitute if she is seen coming in and out of a hotel.
I was wondering whether - if you are in that part of town - you might get the name of this hotel at the station for me as I have not been able to find it anywhere...
If you can please message me or leave the name on this thread.
By the way - Kherson seems to be the find-a bride centre of Ukraine - there are countless wedding dress shops, marriage bureaus, etc. Be aware that as a foreigner you wil be targeted mercilessly so keep your wits about you.
The frgrat is a terible hotel, I stayed there for 2 nights before I moved to a apartment and for less money from around40 a night
