Description

Marco Polo Kos: the Travel Guide with Insider Tips Experience all Kos's attractions with this up-to-date, authoritative guide, packed with Insider Tips. Most holidaymakers want to have fun and feel relaxed from the moment they arrive at their holiday destination - that's what Marco Polo Guides are all about. You'll discover excellent hotels, restaurants, where to shop, trendy places, the best night life and the pick of local festivals and events. Also contains: the Perfect Route, Travel Tips, Links, Blogs, Apps & more, Travel with Kids, Greek phrasebook and a comprehensive index. Kos, with its long stretches of sandy and pebble beaches is an inviting holiday destination, and with a large variety of clubs, there's plenty of scope to enjoy both the beach and the nightlife. Regardless of whether you use a bike or car, following the 'Perfect Route' across the island will lead you to beaches that are practically deserted, out-of-the-way villages, and the famous Asklepion, a unique mix of ancient sanatorium and temple complex.Its central position in the Dodecanese means that neighbouring islands can easily be reached by boat, including the sponge-fishing island of Kalimnos and the volcanic island of Nisyros, as detailed in the Trips & Tours chapter. Insider Tips point you to the Kos Aktis Hotel, an art hotel right on the sea, and Bubble Beach, which has a little surprise in store for snorkelers. The Best Of pages sum up what's typical for Kos, recommend places to go for free, and have tips for rainy days and where you can relax and unwind. Panels in each chapter suggest things to do if you're on a tight budget and where to pick up some real bargains. The Sports & Activities chapter has information for rock-climbing and horse-riding in stunning landscapes, while the Dos & Don'ts tell you why you should never disturb a siesta but why you should definitely heed the traffic regulations. MARCO POLO Kos provides comprehensive coverage of the island. To help you get around there's a detailed road atlas inside, a useful map of Kos Town in the backcover, plus a handy pull-out map. A must-have for all travellers, including those who haven't bought a travel guide in the past.show more

Review quote

Wanderlust Magazine: You've got to applaud Marco Polo's chutzpah to launch 30 new city/island guidebooks into an already pretty crowded market. Aiming to occupy the middle ground between the context-heavy luggage fillers and the context-free thinner volumes, the main USPs of these user-friendly guides are the plentiful 'Insider tips' dotted around each edition, the maps they're packaged with, and the pocket cheering price (GBP5.99 each). Complete with near-magazine style features, they're certainly a less intimidating proposition than some of the big wedges on offer.show more
