Chora in white and blue colours, the capital of Mykonos

Mykonos is a famous but small island of the Greek Cyclades group. There live only 5.000 Greeks who mainly generate their income from the tourist industry. This is not surprising because they almost get 1 million tourists a year. The town of Chora is located around a bay with crystal clear water. From the hill tops you can take beautiful pictures from the city centre and the bay but you have to climb the steep hiking trails. Everywhere you look you see churches, shops, restaurants and bars. Be careful that you don’t loose your way because the narrow streets make it a real labyrinth. This is a top location to go for a walk and have a snack on a terrace.

Mykonos is een beroemd maar klein Grieks eiland van de Cycladen groep. Er wonen slechts 5.000 Grieken die allen leven van het toerisme. Dit is niet verrassend daar er hier ieder jaar ongeveer 1 miljoen bezoekers komen. Chora stad ligt rond een baai met kristal helder water. Na een steile klim op wandelpaadjes kan je van uit de heuvels prachtige foto’s nemen van de stad en de baai. Het kost wel wat fysieke inspanning om er te geraken. Overal vind je kerken, winkeltjes, restaurants en bars. Wees echter op je hoede, je kan makkelijk de weg kwijt geraken in dit labyrint van smalle steegjes. Dit is een top locatie om te gaan wandelen en te genieten van een snack op een terras..
