This just came out! But I say, why second? In my eyes Greece is for sure the best destination across Europe. It has everything you could ask for: good food, history, beaches and culture! That's why I love it so much :) Zito Hellas!

Congratulations to Greece! Readers Choice types of awards are so subjective. Do you happen to know who came in first? Which organization took the poll?

There is a saying in English language.... read it with a pinch of salt!😂😂😂😂.....
It is so irrelevant, nothing to worry about and the readers were all from USA,so it says.... Greece is a Premier Global Destination now..a Tourism Industry to be reckoned with....and unlikely to be easily challenged, except if Spain returns to its glory days,then it is an entirely different matter altogether!..

When was Spain in its glory days? Im not too familiar with their tourism
In 2018, Spain recorded a total of 425.4 million domestic trips, of which 139.9 million were overnight (+1.1% compared to 2017) and 285.5 million were day visitors (+1.9% from 2017).
Spain is one of the most visited countries in the world, with its number of international visitors amounting to nearly 84 million in 2019.Feb 11, 2564 BE
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic led to an annual drop of over 70 percent in the number of international tourists and excursionists in Spain in 2020. In comparison to 2000, the 36.5 million foreign visitors recorded in 2020 represented a decline of more than 50 percent.
You can do your own research if you are interested further!

Tickets to Greece are very cheap at the moment for flights before Christmas!

I was browsing for flights to Greece, as I always do, and they're super cheap right before Christmas! I'm thinking of traveling Dec 6-20 because everyone at my company takes their vacation from Dec 23-Jan 2 so there's basically no work to do anyways!! Is anyone thinking of hopping on these deals?

Greece was voted the second best tourist destination in Europe!

Athens vs Thessaloniki, which Greek city do you prefer?

Im biased but I have to say Athens because of the historical sites (even though its way dirtier and more crowded)!

Taking cash to Greece

Hello
I tried to google it however I am not sure if the information has changed due to Brexit or not so Thought I'd ask here

My sister is visiting me in the UK , she will be travelling back to Greece soon. I wanted to give her cash for her and her family for Christmas however I am not sure how much cash can she actually carry or what is the limit that needs to be declared at customs.

In case it matters, she does not have Greek nationality.

Thank you
