I’m looking to take a trip some where at the end of summer. Where it’s still warm but the end of the tourist season. I see people going to Greece in Santorini or one of those islands and it looks nice and all. But what is there to actually do? I’m also not really sure what authentic greek food is like, I personally don’t like cucumbers in a meal and not a fan of the yogurt sauce. But i have not tried authentic greek food.
Also, people say it’s cheap. I’m looking at the prices of hotels, it’s at least 4k Euros for 5 nights at a good hotel close to the sea. The thing I realized traveling in Europe is, hotels are ridiculously expensive, often not really that nice even at 4-5 stars, old in a bad way and small. Really really small. Especially the beds. European King is like a US full size.
The only thing that is cheap is the flight. I don’t know how restaurant prices are there. I bet it is cheap in non tourist places but I have a feeling vacation spots are going to be expensive.
Feel free to throw out other options. @gain how was Istanbul?
