Customer Travel Tip: Stay 2 days in Chania...Take one to see the old harbour,,go to one of these restaurants in front of the beach and have a proper Greek food and beer,,chill out there with a nice view. And second day go to the beach. And on 3th day take a boat to Santorini is so beautiful there. Also don't take this tour bus in Chania..they will charge u 15 euros to don't show u nothing.

Liked: The old harbour in the city center is amazing

Disliked: I was in the city center on saturday night looking for a club and couldnt find...only bars. and it was raining a bit when i was there..but besides this all good.

Customer Travel Tip: Wear lots of sunscreen and rent a car so sight seeing is much easier! Try the local food and oranges especially!

Liked: I loved the people, the food (especially the oranges from the market!), the sights and the weather! A beautiful escape from the city!

Disliked: The transportation between my hotel and the city center stopped at 10pm and was not reliable on Sundays. Also the buses to the airport do not have a good schedule for morning flights.

Beach / sunbathing Romantic getaway Sightseeing & culture Sports, adventure or outdoor activities

Customer Travel Tip: Skip Heraklion, and get straight away to Chania, set it as a base and explore the beautiful remote beaches of the West, planning plenty of time for it to do it in your own pace and in no hurry.

Liked: Everything. It is a very good base to explore west/southern Crete, but also a nice little place to see itself. I liked people, food, nature, beaches.

Trip Type:
Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Buy souvenir there: I thought in Heraklion or on the South cost they would have been costed more and I was wrong. It was my first day in Crete and decided to wait. Too bad. Olive soap cost from 0.70 - 0.90€ in the other places from 1.00 to 1.50€ and so on...

Liked: Absolutely nice, well kept, full of life but not too noisy or bustiling. I found the best prices in all my stay in Crete.

Disliked: Nothing!
