Beach / sunbathing City break Partying / nightlife Sightseeing & culture Sports, adventure or outdoor activities

Age Range:
18-24

Customer Travel Tip: Go to the Samaria or Imbros gorge. Walk one of the beautiful gorges in the White Mountains area. It is stunning over there.

Liked: The old town, the old harbour is lovely. Also the Greek people are super friendly and the food is amazing. Furthermore, the area is stunning with beautiful nature and beaches. The public transport is good, busses run regular to all corners of the Chania district and beyond.

Disliked: We went in late April. Then there's not that many tourists which is a good thing. But also the bars are still very empty so it is not a good time for partying.

Travel Type:
With friends / other travellers

Trip Type:
Beach / sunbathing Partying / nightlife Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: If you want a peaceful holidays where you're laying on the beach and do nothing I'd advise you to go somewhere else, but if you like to travel and explore on your own, Chania is a good choice.

Liked: Very busy town, hard to get bored. Outstanding amounts of shops, restaurants and all the tourist stuff, but you can also see that people live there as the opposite to all tourist resorts such as Platanias.

Disliked: My friend found it a bit overwhelming with all the noise and commotion. Also, the driving culture is pretty bad, you have to be careful when you're crossing the road.
