Of course Kos Island is not like Santorini and there are very few houses with blue roofs and blue window frames here. But that’s the very thing many tourists need and as the saying goes, demand breeds supply.

One of the most boosted “attractions” of the island is a Greek night in a Greek tavern. The price of that pleasure is around 40 euro including transfer to and from the hotel. Apart from the transfer the price includes supper and a show of local actors performing popular Greek songs and dances.

Zia is also popular for its amazing sunset and breathtaking views of the whole island. Unfortunately we didn’t manage to enjoy the sunset. But we took a walk around the village enjoying beautiful views on the island.
