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.
 

Mykonos Bar Taken To Court By American Tourists For Charging €600 For Two Drinks And A Meze !

Sadly nothing directly will happen to this place..... and no-one has the power to shut them down......yes they will be fined...so what?....There are countless negative reviews on Tripadvisor which I have already posted.....the way I have understood this is that they believe this is media exposure to enhance further business....I have lived and worked in Tourism Industry in various parts and I must say this is spectacularly show biz style negative PR ..... ripping off Travellers is not new in Mykonos.....I will ask my friends who are born and live there what the motives are behind this to allow this situation get out of control....

Passenger locator form

I have read PLF no longer required for Greece. Does this apply for Mykonos also ?

Even Petro the Pelican loves Beautiful Koristia in Mykonos!😂😂😘😘

Did you know that Mykonos has its own historical library?

Many people wouldn't think to visit a library on their vacation, but I do suggest stopping by just to check it out. Besides being a party town, Mykonos has so many beautiful aspects of Greek culture that shouldn't be missed out on. In the library, you'll be able to see many different books outlining the history and culture of Greece. The library is a historical municipal library, meaning that their books focus on preserving the history of Greece. The address to the library is Kampani 2, Mikonos (Kampani Mansion, Ag. Kyriaki Square, 846 00, Greece
