|Here you are then.........
Unless you are an illegal immigrant, you will be arriving at one of the two mentioned airports or at one of the harbours of Chania (Souda Bay); Rethymnon; or Heraklion. If you want to make the right impression, except perhaps in Rethymnon, you should refrain from waving photographic apparatus about. In Crete the airports and harbours are also military areas, the personnel of which may happily take both your photograph; your camera and possibly you, away.
A Word of serious caution. Greece imposes severe penalties for the possession and trafficking in illegal drugs - if you are found in possession of narcotics, even something you may regard as minor, such as Cannabis, you will go to prison. Not a good move if your objective was a sun-tan.}
In true Greek form, getting to your destination from either airport differs. Chania has no buses, Heraklion has. In either case, the organised way is to arrive on a package holiday, be collected and probably bussed to your destination
|For intrepid travelers the easiest way
is by taxi. Greek taxis are reliable, mostly honest,
almost invariably know your destination, even if
mispronounced, relatively cheap. And fast. To make money
when something is cheap means working, or in this case
driving, faster. Take heart, what may look dangerous to
you is food to your driver. On the other hand, if your
cab looks anything but pristine, should you be getting in
it? Can I take you to.......
