Kos town is only a place we decided to visit on the spur of the moment, we was actually on holiday in Bodrum, which is in Turkey. Kos town is only 14 miles across the sea from Turkey and you can see the town all light up at night from Bodrum, so off we went to Kos the very next day, and boy im glad we did. As soon as we got off the hydrafoil in Kos town harbour i just knew we was in for a great day. It reminded me a little of Venice but without the canals, the town is dotted with narrow lanes and streets with beautifully painted houses and window boxes covered with red flowers, and they all seem to lead to a square with caffes and restaurants Mmmmmm great stuff. Im not going to harp on about the history of Kos because theres really no point, also theres so much history surrounding this island i would be here all night writing about it, anyway you can always get info of the web or out of a book if you have to. I just want to say, if you are lucky enough to visit this charming island your in for a real treat. I hope you like my modest pages

    the building was indeed once a mosque - the island has always had a large turkish population from the time that part of turkey was greece. even during the worst enmity there was a "secret" ferry to turkey

    What do we call a cat in Kos that goes, 'Bark, bark.' or 'woof, woof??' (A cat that has learned a foreign language!) As for sugarloaf hill...promises, promises! (I lost my thrill on Blueberry Hill)...Fats Domino!

    I'm sure Kos is well-worth exploring with so many interesting things to see and do. And I love the sea and ferries, could watch them for hours. Thanks for the lovely virtual tour with great pictures, Cliffy.

    Thank you for the virtual visit of Kos, a Greek islands I do not know! Another time, may be! Though, knowing that there is a Mc Do in Kos cools down my enthusiasm! The guy who patented these funny little city trains for visiting places must get big bucks!

    Lucky you to have been able to enjoy the pleasures of Greece! That old hydrofoil looks like something the Russians built during the Cold War, but the harbour area at Kos is amazing!
