    Hated Rhodes

    Post  ruby on Mon Sep 10, 2012 8:20 am

    Whilst in Turkey, decided to take a day trip to Rhodes by catamaran. The best part of the trip was the smooth crossing both ways and the great duty free bargains at Marmaris port. Razz

    As for Rhodes, I hated it. To be fair I did go there back in 1997 and thought what a doghole it was then, but decided to see if it had cleaned up its act. The answer to that is a categoric 'no'. The bins in the old town were overflowing, the streets were filthy, everything was mega expensive and the restaurants looked tacky.

    Then took a short 20 minute taxi ride to Faliraki, party capital of Rhodes. The beach is lovely, Faliraki High Street is disgusting, in recession with half the building closed down, vomit in the gutters, aw I tell you what it was such a relief to get back to Rhodes port and board the cat back to Marmaris. As I was about to board the cat, the steward said 'make sure no Greek sand comes on board' and I know exactly where he was coming from.

    Rhodes in my opinion is a filthy, expensive and disgusting doghole. affraid

    Yeah probably right THD, the recession has hit Greece particularly bad and I knew what I was letting myself in for with Faliraki, Lindos is ok but its horrid the way those poor donkeys have to carry lardbuckets up those narrow street to the top of the hill pig , then they often return back down and stumble in the rush to get a treat and break their legs, poor donkeys Crying or Very sad

    If tourists used their legs instead of humping their big fat arses onto those donkeys, that practice would cease.
