Yup i think for emirates, there is another stop, where they pick up sri lankans before continuing to Dubai / or Athens (can't remember). u mean Thai Airway goes there too???
for emirates, they told me the seats can be booked and unbooked until the date of flight. like booking our own movie tix like that.. but even if confirmed the seats, we are free to uncheck the seats and choose new ones till the very end.
thanks for all the recommendations. will look at them! guinguin, u went b4? or heard from others?
Which hotel is in your list? I will book everything by myself!
Since ikastikies suites fully booked, my husband suggested to go for slightly cheaper hotel. We can spend more in the food and other things
dun sad.. Santorini still have a lot of nice and cozy hotel. Saw Antithesis Hotel from web, look very decent and cozy hotel
have you check tripadvisor for comment yet?
Initially was plan to stay 2-2 in different place, but after reconsider, we wan to save the hassle by moving our luggage upside down from hill and staircase, thus we decided to stay only 1 place. since the distance from Fira - Oia kinda near too..but still up to yourself though.. you may wan to try the different feel for 2 places
We will also be booking everything by ourselves too. Booked for Mykonos and Santorini already. Actually we booked bed and breakfast kind of place which we felt will really let us have the Greece feel. Something like the movie, Mama Mia type of place. Those we booked are owned by families and they have good reviews of their service. Very family oriented and cosy type. Might not have the 5 star kind of treatment but I think having nice ppl around are more impt keke!
Hi Pinky 2,
No leh, I din receive such emails.. hehe u popular lah! Just some advice, if you planning to stay a hotel that requires to walk a lot of step than try to pack light. So that you don;t have such a hard time moving around with ur baggage. Sometimes climbing more step to reach a resort might be worth it because you may be nearer to the sea or higher than other hotels and the view is prettier.. (thought it may not apply to all).. If there's a pool in front of ur room even better! Can soak up during the evening and watch the sunset with a cocktail in ur hand!My view from Sunset hotel is quite good. It's not a super high end classy hotel but it's quite cosy. Just my 2 cents worth of tots
No lah.. i dun think i receive the spams like pink2 does.
Btw, guinguin, night time very cooling one.. I went in July..summer.. super hot. I dun even dare to step outside in noon. No clouds one! And high up on the hill somemore. But at night very cold.. cos we facing the see and the breeze blow.. that's oso because we stayed at the front porch to admire the night view.. very pretty..if u saw my pics of the night view shots.
You can try to ride their "motor bike" I think it's very fun, saw many couples try.. need license but dun rem if need to convert.. i dun think so. They have a lot of shops renting.. for ppl to go ard and get down whenever they want.It's not the type u see in SG.. it's a bit like ATV type.. u go online check. i think it's a new experience
I'm gg from 13 -23 may! How abt u?? Which part will u be visiting? I will be in santorini for 5 days, so still trying to see what is the famous and. Must do /try/ eat in Greece. Did u booked landtour or u booked everything by yourself?
It's ok, I can update u when I come back in late may.. Bt I will be only in santorini and Mykonos cuz I will be taking a 2 days cruise during our trip too.. Care to share how much is yr package w local agent? I oso only booked e accomodation n ferry tsf w local agent.. For 2 Pax is alrdy 4k sgd.. Is it consider exp?
i paid about SGD7k for everything, included ferry, hotels and transfer. without land tour. basically, everything arrange by them, they will come and fetch us to ferry/hotel base on our time we requested. A agent will be allocated to us everyday.
Place included Athens - Meteora - Mykonos - Naxos - Santorini - Athens. Spent 5D4N in Santorini. However, our train from Athens - Meteora we paid by own, but they will run errands for us to get the ticket and pass to us when we reach. And Meteora transfer (like cab etc) not included.
Pinky and everyone!! We are in Greece currently! Santorini!! Excellent lovely beautiful place! Can try all the Greek cuisine like mousaka and gyros all ok! My hubby tried their rabbit stew sigh!!!! People are super duper friendly and helpful. U should rent a vehicle to get around and explore. More fun that way. We rented quad bike for both our Mykonos and Santorini trip!! Oh ya it gets cold at night! Muz bring a sweater
