Mykonos is one of those Greek islands that just can't escape its reputation of being expensive. I love this video because it gives you an honest look at how expensive the island can actually be. As always, take it with a grain of salt because you can truly make anything affordable in Greece by being smart and planning ahead.

Really?.... not in Mykonos.... here is a true story..a few years ago we arrived at Mykonos Airport with 1 hour to spare before catching our Ferry to Syros from Tourlos...in comes a Taxi.... now remember I lived in Mykonos for many years and I knew all the Taxi Drivers and all the people I knew were busy to assist us..!😂😂....he wanted €75 for 5 Kms? journey.... says Palikari Afto iney Timmy mu....in comes another one...he wanted €65😂....he recognised me and said Edho isey?....we had just arrived after 4 flights..and were exhausted......so comes the third one... this time from my village Ano Mera... recognises me .... says...Filey...ya Sena....€25....😂😂.....so the YouTube video and the taxi services they have in a limousine is excellent and exceptionally good...and it is from Grekotel...this makes all the difference!.... Kalley Mera...all good fun.... remind me to tell you about our experience in a taxi from Thai border to Siam Reap for 3 hours on a muddy gravel road... first time I saw windscreen wipers working full speed without water spray..!!. felt like we were in car rally!!...and our backsides very sore for a few days!!.. 😂😂

From what I remember, Santorini can be expensive. I recall the taxi situation is not prime for bartering because the number of taxis is limited - the island won't allow a lot. Supply and demand I guess. It's fun there, though! This is a great video, by the way.
 

Are there any youth hostels that you recommend in Mykonos?

My cousin and I are going to be visiting Mykonos this summer and are wondering if you have any youth hostels that you have been to that you recommend. We love to meet new people when travelling, especially from all around the world! It always seems like Greece is the best place to make friends...What has your experience been?

Enchanting Greek music in Mykonos

This music gives me life! I will never get tired of hearing the sounds of bouzouki and guitar like I used to when I was little in my grandparents village. Bravo to all of the Greeks making us proud around the country. I am so happy and blessed to be Greek, happiness and health to all of us in this New Year!

Did you know that you can stay inside a windmill in Mykonos

This is one of the most unique stays that I have seen in Mykonos! I wonder how many of these hotels there are and if they get booked up pretty quickly. Has anyone stayed in one of these before? I would love to here your experience and if you recommend it or not. Thanks everyone, I look forward to seeing your comments in the thread below.
