Going in February is smart. You go to see what Cyprus is like not a bunch of tourists.
Patrick Lawrence (10 hours ago)
$62 is still cheap. Hotels in the USA it costs that no matter what.

That balcony is great. At least I like it.
This is Cyprus my friend, we have the slowest internet in the world

Cyprus can be really expensive for tourist. Hotels can be really pricey but there are cheapest places to go rarher than staying in downtown. Like staying in Coral beach or bigger houses with many people, like family houses. Also for restaurants is better to go in the middle of the town. For clubbing and having fun downtown is the best place. For the most beautiful beaches are in Latchi Beach and Akamas with really nice 4×4 tours. Also rental car are better in the airpotrts. For drinks and staff also the best places to buy are the supermarkets, avoid suvenir shops and kiosk. There everything cost at least €2 more. Cyprus can be cheap if you are a tourist but you avoid to leave like a tourist i guess
Kyriakos Theodorou (15 days ago)
I mean Paphos. Not Cyprus. Lemesos is really expensive ,also Nicosia. I dont know a lot about Larnaca. For the special night clubbing fun time Ayia Napa is the best place, the ceapest flights are to Larnaca, the capital is Nicosia but nothing special there, for History and culture go to Paphos, and for nature go to Troodos

When you have a kitchen do you at least use it to save money? Eating out all the time is super expensive.

By looking at the clothes the people in your video are wearing, it shows just how cool Cyprus is in February. I have been here for July and will stay until August before heading to Athens and Bangkok. I have compiled a video of our tour over the past four weeks of some great places to visit, including the Troodos Mountains and a number of beaches of south-west Cyprus that your viewers may wish to see. Cheers, Gabriel. https://youtu.be/5-jw_Tblkjc
8:54 They are not towns they are villages only 4 Cities-Towns exists in The Republic of Cyprus but on the island there are 2 more cities occupied from the illegal "Country" of Northern Cyprus.

A bit missleading title of the video. First its expensive and then its cheap? I like most of your videos, just wanted to point that out
Masterashman (2 months ago)
thanks for clearing that, english is not my main language as you might understand :)
Gabriel Traveler (2 months ago)
"How expensive" just means how much do things cost, how much are you going to spend on it. It's a general term, not implying that it is expensive. So it's perfectly normal to ask how expensive something is, even if it's something that's cheap.

No, I didn't make it there. I'll have to visit the next time.

Hi Gabby, what month was this?
Gabriel Traveler (4 months ago)
This was in February.
Thisbe Savva (5 months ago)
As a Cypriot from Cyprus, just a heads up, Cyprus is Cypriot not Greek and definitely not Turkish. We are a whole different culture from Greeks and speak slightly different. You can offend us greatly by calling Cyprus Turkish as it is not. Even though the Turks occupy the Northern side, it is still considered Cyprus or the Turkish republic of Northern Cyprus.

Cypriots are Greeks retard . Οι Κύπριοι δε μιλάνε διαφορετικά από τους Έλληνες γιατί οι Κύπριοι είναι Έλληνες άρα η λογική σου είναι ανύπαρκτη .

Very good video mate! Me and my family go on holiday every year to Paphos and it was nice to see so many familiar places we have eaten and drank in before. Cyprus is a real beautiful island with an interesting history. Keep up the good work.

The political set up isn’t confusing. The Republic of Cyprus is the whole of Cyprus. The northern half is only recognised by Turkey and no one else. They’re still a number of refugees hoping to one day go back home!

Steve Wilkins (6 months ago)
No fee to withdraw cash in Pathos.....love that! The New York Plaza hotel with a full kitchen and nice "room with a view" and balcony looked lovely! Even $60.00 a night during the "high Season" is still a bargain but $23.00 during the Winter is fabulous for a good size apartment. You can travel so well on a reasonable budget and stay for twice the amount of time in Cyprus as you might anywhere else near the Mediterranean Sea. The Cypriot food you showed looked so fresh, healthy and satisfying....for so little cash....what a great place!

It looks more modern than I was expecting.
Zoroastrianistic Zoro (6 months ago)
lol that food was NOT cheap.
Gabriel Traveler (6 months ago)
It depends what you compare it to. I'm now in Greece and I went to a touristy restaurant in which the cheapest thing on the menu was 15 euros. I was wishing for Cyprus prices. For being part of Europe, Cyprus is pretty cheap. But compared to Asia, Latin America, etc. Cyprus is more expensive.

Whenever I go back to S. America then I'd like to see Bolivia, Chile, Argentina and maybe Uruguay or Paraguay.

Hey Gabriel, great video as always! The "collection of scarves" hanging on the tree is nothing but offerings from people to Saint Solomoni. It is believed that she will cure the illness you suffer from if you tie a scarf outside the church.

I see, thanks a lot.

Your delivery is far too businesslike ! Why are you doing this video ??? Is it a job ? Why you sound so frantic , fast and unchill man ?
John Tomoson (6 months ago)
Is this the Turkish side or the Greek side?
Comrade Doge (3 months ago)
Its the internationally recognised county of cyprus not the occupied north
Gabriel Traveler (6 months ago)
The Greek side. Paphos is in the southwest of the island.
Spurious Flatus (6 months ago)
It seems like the prices are only moderate, neither expensive nor cheap. All prices quoted from you are in Euros, which is an excellent currency to use, other than the USD, so that most people around the world can understand the relative prices of things, within the context of where you currently are. Of course you are staying in modest hotels instead of youth hostels. I have no more patience for the latter. Always many thanks to you Gabe, and we look forward to you next video! :D Cheers!

It's a great camera you have! Did you change the camera recently? What is it? It's Cristal Clear😎

Camera info is always listed in the info section below the video. It's the GoPro 6, glad it's looking good.

Hi Gabriel, where would you like to live if you didn't live in the US? After all of your globe trotting do you still feel right at home when you return to the US? Thanks for your great videos!
Mike igotravel (6 months ago)
I have been living in the same city since 1988, and I still don't think that this is where I'm supposed to live. I've traveled to several parts of the USA, but I couldn't find a better place than where I am. Gabriel, who knows where you will find a permanent home? I just met a couple who sold their home in Florida, bought an RV, and travel all over the USA staying at a camp site a week at a time. The nation is their home.
Gabriel Traveler (6 months ago)
Good question, I'm not sure yet. Probably California, Oregon or Hawaii. But no I definitely don't feel right at home. Hard to describe.

Did you fly from Israel to Cyprus or is there a ferry or something?
Gabriel Traveler (7 months ago)
Yeah I flew from Jerusalem direct to Paphos for about $80.

Cyprus has been a typical British holiday destination, which always put me off as I hate going to all those resort type places. But maybe I should check it out.

Great video! If you do end up in Greece again, will you try to reconnect with Deana?
Holech Batel (7 months ago)
In Israel hotel prices are high mainly because there is a shortage of hotel rooms. And why is there such a shortage? Because every now and then there is a war and/ or a military operation and then there is almost no tourism. So the investment in hotels is not worthwhile for entrepreneurs. But in recent years it has changed and prices may also vary accordingly. Regarding food, there is no big difference between the prices of food in Cyprus and the prices of food in Israel In restaurants. Only the beer in Israel costs too much, and I think the main reason for this is that Israelis do not drink a lot of beer. They drink beer as an entertainment, but not with food. And this creates a situation in which the owners of the bars have no fixed income as in European countries. Anyway you bought beer from a small brewery, a boutique brewery, supermarket beers cost cheap. The shoes you've seen are ridiculous, shoes in Israel cost $ 30-50 dollars. And the shoes you showed - I dont know what it is and who wearing them. Anyway, stop being so grumpy ... The world is big, you'll manage without us and we'll get along without you

Because they're expensive.

Do you think all of the prices would change a lot during their high season? Thanks and praises for keeping us updated so consistently and thoroughly. Safe travels!

Definitely accommodation will go up. Not sure about restaurant prices.

i was wondering the same. they passed when my grandfather was 2 so he lost track. they visited there as adults. but the info we were able to find was thru Ancestry.com. but I had no luck at all
Gabriel Traveler (7 months ago)
That must be Cyprus then, I think it's the only place where Greek and Turkish cultures are on the same island.

What an awesome apartment for so cheap per night! Comparable to some prices I’ve seen in Belgrade during this time of year, and even in the summer season.
Stasi (7 months ago)
But for affordable food, drink, etc. Serbia is definitely a great option. No beach or anything but there still is a lot to see if you like visiting churches, monasteries and there are a lot of cool things to see in the cities

No I'm just using the camera by itself, it's the GoPro Hero 6.
Rocco (7 months ago)
How much was your flight here?
Vlado S (6 months ago)
he is a budget traveler and he is able bodied
Rocco (7 months ago)
Cyprus I'm sure is safe but it's the opportunists watching and following your vlogs that are the concerns. Yes I realize that you're not a novice at this (obviously) but just to be on the safe side take out a smaller amount. We need to watch your next 50 countries.
Gabriel Traveler (7 months ago)
When you're getting money out of an ATM you're already flashing it. :) Depends on the place but Cyprus is about as safe as it gets. Yeah that's a great deal for the flight, it was only 40 minutes but international. It's one of the things that determines where I go next, where I find a super cheap flight to. Cyprus was the cheapest place from Israel and I was curious to see it anyway.
Rocco (7 months ago)
Wow! Cheap. 400 mi. flight around here would cost around $350-400.One other thing to be on the safe side next time don't flash your funds in front of the camera there might be a kook out there following your vlogs. You're safety is more important than your input.
Gabriel Traveler (7 months ago)
From Jerusalem it was around $80 total I think.
Oliver K. (7 months ago)
The Airbnb‘s I stayed in in Cyprus had very decent wifi speeds (upload speeds 10mbps+)... the apartments were also very affordable. So I wouldn‘t say internet speeds are bad in general. If you need more infrastructure you should stay in Limassol or Larnaca.
Gabriel Traveler (7 months ago)
Hm, I tried to upload videos at five or six different restaurants, and in two different hotels and it was always the same thing, insanely slow. It was slightly better in Larnaca at least.
Perry Jones (7 months ago)
I wonder why Gabriel doesn't get a folding bike. Places like Cyprus - he could cover more territory than walking.
Gabriel Traveler (7 months ago)
That would be great.....except for all the times when you weren't biking and had a bike to carry around. :) I did get a bike on this trip though: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGKnQfoPqOM
Vendeta V (7 months ago)
I'm from Scandinavia Europe and I can say that those food prices are far from cheap. In Spain, more touristy than Cyprus, food prices cost half, for example buffe in most of Spain's cities cost around 10-15 euros, I mean good buffe. but the hotel price is cheap where you live. Larnca is more touristy go there if you have the opportunity

Aquarian Christianity (7 months ago)
Nice video, Gabriel! Yes, except for the first restaurant things seem considerably cheap! The dinner looked wonderful. Filling, something that I desire. It's like my vacation on Terceira. Isl., Azores, PT. I could stuff myself, and more, if I were careful, on 12 euros. A decent dinner for about 18 to 19, and of course both about a 5-minute walk from the beach. What I've seen of Cyprus I like. Originally, there were a native people, not the Greeks; I think they still live there.
k ruddy (7 months ago)
wow, great price and even low season is best time to visit.
August Moonlight (7 months ago)
Awesome video as always. I have been following your vlogs for a year, I love the realistic approach to real time travel. This vlog inspired me to travel there based on the affordability itself" would you recommend a vacation there for a single mom of a teen, lol???? Thanks , greeting from Florida ! USA
Gabriel Traveler (7 months ago)
Thanks, yeah I would say it's a good spot for vacation with a teen. Nice low-key place and not too expensive. Probably pretty hot and crowded in peak season in July and August. There will be a couple more videos from there.
