Here are some of the popular phrases to learn when visiting Greece (for those that are not Greek and/or do not speak Greek):

Excellent video! You do need to know at least a little Greek while in Greece. Well you don't technically "need to" - you can get by because people do speak English. But, they LOVE it when we speak at least a little bit.
 
I learned a fair amount of Greek when I was a kid and my grandparents were still around, but over the years, I have forgotten it. The first time I went to Greece it took me a few days to remember my Greek. Once I was able to start speaking, I got so much more out of my time there. It's sooo worth it to do some language prep work before arriving. If I had done that, I wouldn't have wasted my first few days in the country getting my bearings with the language.

I always am a bit shaky in the beginning, and then after a few days I start to get more used to it, and my fear develops as well, although my Greek is pretty bad overall

It's a really difficult thing, trusting our brain and our mouths when navigating a second language!

I wish I knew more Greek! Thanks for sharing
 

Greek tourism industry bounces back despite Europe's cost of living crisis.

They are already discussing to increase the hotel rates by at least 25%!

What place in Greece do you regret travelling to?

I thought I'd ask a more of a provocative question on this forum. I'm absolutely in love with Greece, and I truly think that every single place in the country is beautiful. But of course, some things aren't for everyone. Which makes me ask the question, what place in Greece do you regret travelling to? I can't wait to see some of these answers and debate in the threads!!

What is the cheapest island in Greece?

This post is for all of my budgeters! I would love to know if anyone has advice on inexpensive islands visit in Greece. I have found that over the years, the prices of hotels and restaurants are increasing and getting way too expensive. I would love to keep traveling to Greece, because it’s my favorite destination but I don’t want to break the bank either. Any advice from seasoned Greek travelers? Thanks 😊

Be aware! Some beaches in Greece may be nude

This is just something to be aware of when traveling to Greece and this may surprise you if youre not from Europe. Some beaches in Greece are nude, and when visiting a non-nude beach, you might see some women topless. This is not as popular is it used to be in Greece. I have noticed less and less women going topless but it still happens. It is not considered rude in Greece to do, especially in front of small children. If you don't feel comfortable, just politely move away or go to another beach!
