How Expensive is Traveling in CYPRUS? It's Cheap!
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
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
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
"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.
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.
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!
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 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.
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.
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
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.
Cyprus is famous for its olive oil...I just visited Yerevan Armenia including the Seven lake and between Georgia Tbilisi and Armenia Yerevan, ,I think I"ll choose both, lol I enjoyed both countries and very lovely people..my next trip to "god knows' lool..food not so good in both countries and Armenian beer sucks, lol
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
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
