Marco Polo Kos: the Travel Guide with Insider Tips Experience all Kos's attractions with this up-to-date, authoritative guide, complete with 'Best Of' recommendations. You'll discover nice hotels, restaurants, where to shop, trendy places, the best night life and the pick of local festivals and events. Also contains: the Perfect Route, Travel Tips, Links, Blogs, Apps & more, Travel with Kids, Greek phrasebook and a comprehensive index. Kos, with its 60km (38 miles) of sandy and pebble beaches, is an inviting holiday destination. With as much variety of clubs as water sports, there's plenty of scope to enjoy both the beach and the nightlife. The largely flat island is easy to explore by bicycle, but whether by car or by bike, tours will lead you to beaches that are practically deserted, out-of-the-way villages, and the famous Asklepion, a unique mix of ancient sanatorium and temple complex, all of will be encountered when following the 'Perfect Route' across the island. MARCO POLO Kos does more than just invite you to explore the 'island of Hippocrates'. Its central position in the Dodecanese means that neighbouring islands can easily be reached by boat, including the sponge-fishing island of Kalimnos and the volcanic island of Nisyros. And whether by car ferry or excursion boat, it's just a short hop across to Turkey. Insider Tips point you to the Kos Aktis Hotel, an art hotel right on the sea, and Bubble Beach, which has a little surprise in store for snorkelers. The Best Of pages sum up what's typical for Kos, recommend places to go for free, and have tips for rainy days and where you can relax and unwind. Panels in each chapter suggest things to do if you're on a tight budget and where to pick up some real bargains. The Sports & Activities chapter has information for rock-climbing and horse-riding in stunning landscapes, while Trips & Tours includes a bike ride along the north coast and trips to neighbouring islands. Finally the Dos & Don'ts tell you why you should never disturb a siesta but why you should definitely heed the traffic regulations. MARCO POLO Kos provides comprehensive coverage of the island. To help you get around there's a detailed road atlas inside, a useful map of Kos Town in the backcover, plus a handy pull-out map map.
