- Plan in advance- Greece is one of the most beautiful places in the world. With tourists flooding in all year round, booking in advance really comes in handy. With a distance of 5,775 km, it takes an entire day to travel from India to Greece. Not only for the air tickets, which means cheaper air fares, but also minor bookings like ferry rides and hotels are also important. Make sure you carefully read all the details given about the hotel as you might not get what you booked.
- Make a list- Greece is on everybody’s bucket list. With so many places to visit, it is impossible to cover all of them in one trip hence you must prioritize. A difficult but very essential word, only if you prioritize will you truly be able to enjoy and soak in the beauty of every monument. Places like the Greek islands, Crete, Athens, Meteora, Delphi, Peloponnese, Zagori, Cape Sounion etc. are some of the essential places to visit. Try visiting each place with patience, solace and no hurry.
- Essentials for the stay- Except for the basic utilities like Passport and visa, do not forget to carry your bathing suit and sunblock. Always carry enough cash as many hotels do not accept card. Do not carry much luggage as you will be travelling on ferries. Be aware of pickpockets. You won’t find many vegetarian restaurants hence carry your veggies. Most important rule is to stay hydrated due to extreme temperatures. Other than that it is the perfect place with a beautiful summery vibe.
- Back to home- Make sure you book your flight return tickets on time as well and not leave them till the last minute. As you are not carrying much luggage that’s why it won’t be difficult to pack up. Make sure you keep your jewelry, camera and cards safely.
Come as may, your motive for the trip should be to leave your worries behind, explore a new surrounding and inculcate as much as you can for a better self.
