1. Thank you very much Insider, just in 8 minutes you have described the whole of Greece!

  2. Greece has so many beautiful places that are much better (and cheaper) than santorini and Mykonos 💕

  3. tbh if you visit greece one time youll get 20% of it .it is much more than mykonos or santorini . cities like kalavryta ,monemvasia,volos are extremely underated

  4. I love my brothers and sisters of Greece. Love from an Italian 🇮🇹🇬🇷💕

  5. As a Greek in my opinion mykonos is overrated and overpriced. Santorini is very beautifull but overpriced

  6. Come to Crete lady’s and gentelmens
    The most beautiful island 🇬🇷🇬🇷🇬🇷

  7. Greetings to everyone from Greece!!! 🇬🇷🇬🇷🇬🇷🇬🇷🇬🇷🇬🇷🇬🇷🇬🇷

  8. Guys, also Greece is the safest country in Europe about the coronavirus. The safety measures were taken early and it is totally safe for tourists.

  9. Instead of Santorini and Mykonos, visit Kefalonia and Skopelos or even Crete. I’m Greek, from Athens.

  10. Ρε μαλακες να μας σκοτώσετε θέλετε;
    Ο κοροναιος επεκτείνεται, θα πεθάνουμε όλοι!

  11. Insider : Greece is Insider’s No.1 Country to Visit in 2020
    Corona Virus : Say syke right now

  12. 5 months ago seems like a millennia ago now.. still, it’s a beautiful country to visit, this year or the next one

  13. *please let me know of other places in the replies to add more*
    Islands and other destinations to visit when in Greece (other than Mykonos and Santorini!!!):
    -Athens(best for sightseeing)
    -Thessaloniki(more of a rural area)

  14. For those not wanting to see Santorini or Mykonos necessarily: Pilio, Paxoi, Lefkada, Creta, Corfu, Skopelos, Samothraki, Ithaca, Peloponnisos, Syros, Kithira and the list goes on…

  15. Μαρεσει που τα κοιταω λες και θα πάω διακοπές φέτος 😂

  16. Nah. I’m pretty sure the Insider’s number 1 country to visit in 2020 is your own house.


  18. If you’re reading this and you are considering visiting Greece pls take some time and search up “Allonissos”

  19. If you’re gonna make a video about Greece the least you can do is learn how to pronounce the names of the places you mention

  20. Remember the last time people travelled internationally and caused a worldwide pandemic to spread? Yeah, me neither.

  21. Best country in Europe !!! Then Italy , food culture history people nature breathtaking beauty !! You can go back again and again

  22. 🚨Please come to Greece we have the best and most beautiful country please see that🚨

  23. We would prefer if you stayed in your countries this year because of covid19. But ok whatever our government decides is best

  24. If you love Greece and Greeks do a covid test before coming to our country. Be responsible.

  25. I am Greek and honestly I am not a fan of Mykonos & Santorini. Islands like Corfu, Zakynthos, Crete, Naxos and so many more are 100% more worth it (and less expensive too).

    New Zealand

  27. IF u want to visit greece, remember Santorini and mykonos are the most expensive! here are SOME VERY AWESOME ISLANDS equaly good!! : Zakynthos, Lefkada, corfu <-- cold waters, Warm watters --> Skopelos, thassos, crete, skiathos, santorini, mykonon, paros, other cool places that are equaly good with the sea of these islands: Platamonas, Ai gianis( behind volos), Xalkidiki close to (thesaloniki), Evia, ( also in general all cool small islands are great too!, anywhere you will go in greece island or not you will find amazing beaches everywhere!

  28. Albeit Santorini and Mykonos are utterly beautiful,Greece boasts numerous other marvelous locations

  29. Ευτυχώς έχουμε και τα νησιά να διατηρούν τα οικονομικά της Χώρας

  30. Thanks for advertising our country we really need tourism otherwise our economy will collapse ❤️

  31. Greece is known for its white and blue houses, but Jesus Christ it’s so much more than that!

  32. please dont feel obligated to visit we dont want a full outbreak again we barely managed the first one

  33. Mykonos and Santorini are extremely liberal.
    Visit Macedonia, Peloponesus.
    Epirus or Thrace.
    Nice friendly people, good weather, hot women, culture and tradition everywhere.

  34. I went in 2018 and visited Athens, Meteora, Santorini, and Ios. Though I loved Santorini it wasn’t my favourite part! Ios is incredible with its quiet day time, beautiful beaches, and insane nightlife. Meteora is up north from Athens you have to take a 5 hour train ride and it has natural rock formations with monasteries at the top, the tours are really cool. And Athens is just a vibe, the culture and energy is something you have to experience. Love Greece❤

  35. Any YouTube channel: makes a video about greece
    Greeks: hippity hoppity this comment section is now my property

  36. Greek cuisine is vegan friendly, because a lot of our dishes are plant based and we use olive oil instead of butter in almost everything. You can find fruits and vegetables pretty much everywhere for a really good practice. They are juicy and tasty as well. However meat is a big part of the culture so you may wanna ask before you order something.
    My favourite meal during summertime is greek salad with homemade bread and a spicy feta cheese sauce ( which is not exactly a sauce thou but I definitely recomend it)

  37. Apart of being such a blessed place with all that beauty to literally explodes during summer, I have to mention that in terms of the human interaction locals are so friendly welcoming and honest,they really don’t care for stuff like colour,religion,political affiliation ,etc ….all that makes the experience even more worthy….special bonus goes to the Greek girls no matter what tone of colour they have seem to be unbeatably sexy ,very fit ,tall beautiful faces all of them speak very well English, and more importantly they are true party girls 🥰

  38. Please come with responsibility be careful of covid before you come be 100% sure

  39. Kefalonia is one of the most beautiful islands in Greece too because it combines both mesmerizing beaches and magical forests and mountains!

  40. Hi I’m from Greece it’s the best Country of all history!🇬🇷 And part of the EU!🇪🇺 And our currency is the EURO!💶 AND I’M FROM ATHENS!🏆

  41. Ρε τι φάση ήρθα στα comments να βρω Έλληνες και βλέπω όλο κάτι greece is so beautiful

    We already know that duh

  42. Please to everyone who’s thinking about spending the summer in Greece and especially Greek islands be really careful
    Greek islands are mostly inhabited by elderly people and if they get sick it’s most likely they are gonna die due to luck of hospitals and doctors on the islands.

  43. Σε ούτε μια ελληνική λέξη δεν έβαλε σωστή νότα…

  44. Remember if you’re white they are friendly. .they are super racists to blacks brown and Asians and call them mavros..meaning black.

  45. If you wanna experience Greek culture and come in contact with Greeks, do not go to Santorimi and Mykonos, there are no Greek people there. There tourist and Albanians working for very little money. Go to smaller island, we have hundreds of them.

  46. Dude this is nothing, greece has so many other islands that are cheaper and more beautiful!!

  47. You can aslo visit the mountain villages too, more chill less crouds but still breathtaking.

  48. We don’t want any more tourists!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They destroy the natural country especially you cruisers!!!!!!!!!!!

  49. The entire video is literally showing only Santorini and Mykonos like bruh why do you guys focus on our islands…

  50. Assuming this whole mumbo jumbo with the Covid-19 is true, do you really think you should advertise a country that is basically Covid-19 free as the No 1 destination? Did you ask Greek people if they want to have Covid-19 reappearing in their country? Whatever… Dislike for just believing it’s a good period for travelling abroad -_-

  51. Gyros originated in Anatolia in regions like Smyrna and Constatinople that then were inhabited by Greeks. In Greece we call the food made by Greeks who lived in such regions πολίτικο.

  52. κοροναιο μην ξεχασετε να φερε ολοι εσεις που θα ξεσκιστειτε και φετος να ερθετε

  53. Greece is not only Santorini and Mykonos. Dont be fooled to just stay at those islands. They are overrated. Try visiting the ionian islands too. Try Corfu, Kefalonia, Zakynthos and many more! Thessaloniki is also great. If you come to Greece just to only visit only an island or two, dont come up to any conclusions yet, because Greece has a lot more to offer than white and blue painted houses!

  54. Keep in mind, super expensive resorts are not the only option. In many islands there are organised camp sites that are much cheaper and especially for young people it’s also a great way to socialize. Most of them have pretty clean bathrooms, bars where you can start or finish off your evening, and in case you can’t carry a tent with you, many can supply a tent for an extra fee.

  55. I am Greek and I am happy that my country will be the top 1 destination for holidays:)

  56. 4:25 gryros you can put everything I eat it with jajiki and SOS and potatoes is very tasty you can put ketchup

  57. i guess Greece was always so special and unique. A piece of paradise on earth. That’s why many coultries are envy of Greece. Kisses from Italy.

  58. As a Greek I also recommend Thessaloniki, the second largest city which has a lot of Byzantine monuments and Thassos island which is ideal for families with small children and Lesvos island that has a lot of picturesque villages

  59. Places to Visit:
    Greece is not only mykonos and Santorini there are many places to visit

  60. Loulaki pronounced like lulakai…
    Λουλάκι>Lulàki in Greek!

    Very nice video but everyone hears about Mykonos and Santorini…
    There are much more nice places in Greece
    Also, no one ever talking about Northern Greece!
    Greece is not only Athens and Islands!
    Thessaloniki, Drama, Komotini…
    Samothraki island just amazing!

    *in Greek the island called Θηρασία(Thirasìa)
    Santorini is a non Greek word that somehow was adopted even by Greeks!

    When some Italians sail to the Island of Thirasìa they saw a little church of Saint Irene on the shore!
    Saint Irene >Santa Irini> SantoRini
    It is a Italian rooted word
    In Greek the island is called Thirasìa!

  61. go and visit thasos island it is very beuatiful with green ;D
    santorini has only white bulddings
    thasos has green,beautiful sea,beuatiful archytecture,interesting things to do etc

  62. Parthenon doesn’t hold the statue of Athena… It supposed to be there in the ancient period

  63. Out of all the years 2020 is considered the best year? Now that no one can visit due to the virus? Come on now 🤣😭

  64. I’d strongly advise against going to Santorini and Mikonos because they tend to get too crowded and p3rsonally I think that ruins it. There are tons of other islands or seaside cities to visit, like Skopelos, Skiathos and Alonnisos, Corfu (Kerkira), Lefkada, Ithaca, Paros, Naxos, Samothrace, Kefalonia, Preveza, Parga, all of Evia, Nafplio, Patra(s), Volos etc. Then there’s other regions you can visit for more mountain based activities, like Ioannina, Pelion, villages in Thessaly, some places in Peloponnese etc. Some of these islands or cities are more family friendly, some are best suited for young adults that want to party in kind of a mainstream way (clubs, beach bars etc) and some are best for more alternative kind of options, like camping (free camping is forbidden generally but better jump onto Facebook and find some local camping teams to get details about that), hiking, mountain biking etc. Unfortunately, there won’t be any music festivals this summer due to covid-19, but every year there’s at least 4 or so big camping music festivals that are great for those who like punk music, reggae/dub and definitely favor the local rap scene. My favorite, which is also totally free, is Los Almiros and takes place in Almiros, Volos every year in the beginning of August, it’s about 4 days long and it’s a favorite among the more alternative kind of people. Just be prepared for the heat and the sun or rainfall and mud, because both are a possibility. There’s another one in Crete (Cretan Gunners Festival) that will take place in October this year, due to c19, except if things change. You can find these on Facebook and if you like the pages, fb will probably recommend to you some more similar festivals you can attend after this whole pandemic thing is over.

  65. For the love of god don’t visit Greece , the pandemic shit is still happening it’s just the government wanting to make some early money with dumb enough tourists

  66. There are more beautiful islands than mykonos or santorini. Syros, Ios, Koufonisia and Crete for example.

  67. All Greece is beutyfull! And Greece is not just Santorini,mykonos or Creta ,off course our islands are so beautiful all but Greece has so many other destinations like Epirus, Peloponnesus, Macedonia , Thessaly etc. I wish to all foreign tourists will visit my country WELCOME ☺

  68. Yeah..come to Greece so we can put you in quarantine for 14 days, so you can see how beautiful are the four walls in your hotel room….

  69. pro tip from a greek: don’t just visit mykonos and santorini… talk to greeks, in person or online we are more than happy to inform tourists about destinations that aren’t mainstream yet are worth it even more. feel free to ask me 🙂

  70. Greece ?? Well this is what i have heard very recently about Greece. The people live in poverty, there is a massive divide. And that the elite and Hollywoods pedophiles use certain islands for child ritual sacrifice (adrenochrome??) and child trafficking. I researched the history of Greece and it all stems back to Lillith … According to Siegmund Hurwitz the Talmudic Lilith is connected with the Greek Lamia, who, according to Hurwitz, likewise governed a class of child stealing lamia-demons. Lamia bore the title “child killer” and was feared for her malevolence, like Lilith. She has different conflicting origins and is described as having a human upper body from the waist up and a serpentine body from the waist down.[79] One source states simply that she is a daughter of the goddess Hecate, another, that Lamia was subsequently cursed by the goddess Hera to have stillborn children because of her association with Zeus.

  71. As a Greek. Our food is the best BUT 🙂 just remember the bottle of water costs 0.50$ NOT 3$ just know were to get it and
    2) Gyros / souvlakia and most fast food are 20 times better and 20 times cheaper just around the corner if u know were to go and not eat it at the tourist spots 😛 .
    Also Greece is not just Mykonos / Santorine alsoe plzzzz if ur sick stay home ;P we got low COVin-19 cases in greece and we would like it to stay that way 😛

  72. sure those places r nice but the rest of our country is basically a nationwide ghetto

  73. Greece the most beautiful country if we had more money we could make it hundred times better

  74. it’s sad that tourists are enjoying Greece more than Greeks do.

  75. As Greek I have to tell you that Greece is more than these islands.
    After Athens visit Thessaloniki too. 🇬🇷

  76. Visit North Greece! Macedonia, Epirus. Thrace. Beautiful places tons of beaches and sites to visit



  79. If you have any symptoms, please stay home. We are poor and don’t have enough ICUs. They system will saturate fast and collapse. Especially in the islands healthcare has always been an issue for years. Photoshop is a good solution for some profile pictures.

  80. The most beautiful country in the world ..with the most beautiful beaches..sunny the most days of the year, great food , nightlife and of course great History! With so many islands..not only Santorini and Mykonos ..but also Milos, Kimolos, Antiparos, Astupalaia, Amorgos , Skopelos, Alonissos, Skiathos, Sifnos, Serifos, Patmos, Syros, Symi..and so many others! In love with greek culture ! In love with Greece 🇬🇷

  81. Seeing only mykonos and santorini WILL GET YOU DISAPPOINTED!!
    For God’s sake visit more places!!

  82. I am so proud of my country ☺️ And not only because we almost avoided the COVID-19 disaster but because first of all greek people are so friendly, we also have so many places to visit except from Santorini and Mykonos . Our history is so long and powerful .
    I would really recommend to you guys to visit our county and explore it if you can .☺️🌸

  83. This year, the whole world deserves the best holidays that can get, and that is the country that beated up the The Virus: GREECE!

  84. Ok…not fully accurate and pronunciation misleading at times…too many photos of known highly touristy places… Greece is so much more… thanks for the effort nonetheless.

  85. Careful, there are thousands of hundreds of tourist traps. Like the gyro is not 3 euros ok? And other foods. Or olives and olive oil. Just go to a supermarket. It’s a lot cheaper and better.

  86. Try Milos, Greece. Prettiest waters I’ve seen. But we have soooo many beautiful islands. If you’re intersted in travelling to Greece try going to many islands that are close together by boat.

  87. I’m from one of the most popular island in Greece, and I would like to take the opportunity to say thank you to all of you for choosing Greece and thank you to the nearly 3 million people who visited my wonderful island in 2019.

  88. Somehow it’s funny how this video is STILL completely relevant even after 2 months of global quarantine…

  89. Flying from Texas.. where would you recommend flying into and getting around in? I would like to visit Athens, Mykonos and Santorini. Also, how many days is a good amount without rushing, but also not being too long?

    1. Athens
    everyone who goes to Greece almost always starts off in Athens. spend your first day here, seeing buildings such as the Parthenon and eating in one of the many markets in the city. then, spend the next day in Delphi, which is two hours north – you can visit the Temple of Apollo, one of the world’s oldest standing temples. it’s so beautiful and definitely worth it. my hotel recommendation is the Hotel Grande Bretagne, just near Syntagma Square.
    2. Crete
    after spending two days in Athens, head off to Crete for about five days. DO NOT GO TO MYKONOS DURING THE SUMMER, IT IS VERY CROWDED!! I would recommend flying into the city of Chania, although you can fly to whichever city you choose. spend a couple of days there, but make sure to take at least one of those days to visit some of the beautiful beaches on the west coast of the island, such as Elafonisi and Falassarna. on your last day, make the trip to the Cretan capital city of Heraklion and spend the night there. my hotel recommendation for Chania is Casa Delfino; it’s a nice, small little hotel that makes you feel like you’re living in ancient Greece.
    3. Santorini
    after taking a ship from Heraklion, head off to Santorini, the most beautiful island on Earth. you should spend about a week here, taking in the views and things to do. my favorite things to do were head down to Ammoudi Bay from the top of the island (a great exercise!) to eat some fresh octopus right on the water, go snorkeling in the Aegean on a catamaran, and so much more! make sure you check out Atlantis Books, a cute bookshop in the village of Oia. it’s very hard to choose a resort here because there are so many beautiful options, but my best recommendation would be Kirini Santorini. there are many little rooms, each with its own special view of the water.

    I hope you like my recommendations! trust me, this is the best way to go to Greece in two weeks.

  91. Grécia & Layssa eu te amo muito amor e carinho que ganha mais dinheiro 👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩😙😘😘😙😙😚 😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😍😍 😚😙😗😉 de uma pessoa muito bom e eu te amo muito amor Grécia e Layssa

  92. Love Greek from Italia 🇮🇹 We are your true brother 💪🏻🏛️🇬🇷🇨🇾


  94. How I wish more people appreciated the beauty of the rivers, the lakes and the forests of Northern Greece!

  95. Греция очень красивая страна. Добро пожаловать греческим людям для туризма в алжирской пустыне, самой красивой пустыне в мире

  96. HOLY SHIT IT’S ON FIRE 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

  97. Dont go to Greece for any holiday. They still believe Greece’s economic success is thanks to their corrupt political leaders and not to tourism. Since joining the EU in 1981 and the euro in 2002 they have actually gone backwards and not forward economically, socially and politically. Dont go to Greece for a holiday.

  98. **Greek girl here** JUST to be clear, our fellow visitors we do NOT believe in the twelve Olympians, so don’t ask a Greek person that 😂

  99. Greece is not a country but a state of the EU. Hopefully Greece will leave the EU and the euro.

  100. I love Greece so much! I was so lucky to be able to travel there last year and had the best time there. Food was so good especially the tomatoes, seafood in the cones and Loukumades 😱🥰

  101. It’s true that Greeks are really friendly to tourists, I love talking to tourists every time I meet some and it’s so fun!

  102. Hello. Greek here. I got some advice. Do not visit Athens or Thessaloniki in two specific dates. 17 of November and 6th of December. There are the only dates were Athens is truly dangerous

  103. I really want to visit Greece.. Hope for next New Year.. Atena looks magnificent 👌🇬🇷❤️.. Greetings from Croatia 🇭🇷

  104. Austerity-plagued and on the verge of anarchy. Terrible waste-management, 50% youth unemployment, depleted ecology, slave-labour agriculture, indebted, foreign-owned, sickening and legendary inequality!

  105. Hello guys. Today I’m here to teach you the most important greek words.

    Hi: γειά

    How are you?: Πώς είσαι/ τι κάνεις;

    Watch your name?: Πώς σε λένε;

    Shit! : Σκατά!

    Assh*le: μαλ@κας

    B*tch: σκύλα

    Bye! : Αντίο!

    Gyros: γύρος/πιτογυρο

    Wi- fi : exactly the same word in Greece

    Water: νερό

    If you want to ask other words leave a comment!

  106. One of the most historic and beautiful countries in the world 🇬🇷🇬🇷🇬🇷

  107. And crete and corfu and kos and athens and lots of parts of Greece

  108. “Gyros originates from anatolia, and was introduced to Greece after WW2” , do ur research insider, it was after WW1 and the Greco Turkish war of 1922

    Also, the temple of athena hasn’t been in the parthenon in millennia

    If yall are gonna rep my country at least do it right godamn

  109. Greece is really bad, rude people, things are overpriced, it’s some what dangerous – I gotta say after visiting all these places, my least favorite is Greece. Spain was my favorite.

  110. Greece is also Thessaloniki with the White Tower and many buildings from the Byzantine ages

  111. When you work as waiter in a Greek restaurant and see this in your recommendations….
    Shit is going be brutal

  112. Oh my gosh I went to Greece to it was beautiful I love the food everything and I went to Mykonos and I wanted to go to Santorini but we didn’t have enough time to go to Century nail it was really far

  113. Florida: but we..we have Mickey ….
    Greece: sorry kiddo but we’re on television
    Florida: famous last words

  114. Greece is not only about it’s islands…if you are looking for a beautiful and peaceful place to go Greece’s mountains are the best!


  116. Hi 🙂 Could someone please help me ? Is it safe for solo travel women to live in Athens for 5 months ? Thank you very much for your opinion 🙂

  117. Ok, here’s how you pronounce Cyclades so that you won’t be laughed at: Kee-klāh-dhes.

  118. I recently visited Athens for 2 days, and honestly, all the people and food are insanely superb. Planning to revisit there again. fascinating history

  119. What an honor! I am Greek, I travel all year around the world but I dedicate two winter weeks to hike out mountains and ski, and all summer to discover our beautiful islands! Peace and love to every corner of the Earth 🙏🌍

  120. Visit Epirus region !!!
    It includes mountains(hiking,rafting) and amazing beaches
    Thank me later 😉

  121. Greece has to be even taken out of all the lists of travel .
    The land is Beautiful but the fake people are the worst , rude and evil .

  122. why isn’t the Greek government restoring all the Ancient Greek statues, monuments and The Parthenon?

    after playing Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, I felt such a joy just exploring the entire country of Greece in that game only to see the Ancient Greek monuments at their peak of beauty and importance.
    the Statue Of Athena on Parthenon was incredible. the attention to detail, everything.

    I hope Ubisoft makes an AC game set in Ancient Rome as well. they already made AC games set in the Renaissance Italy but Ancient Rome is different.

  123. Yeah, come on down to Greece guys. It’s cheap, it’s beautiful, it’s fun. It’s a good time.

  124. even though the tourist numbers are huge and the income from tourism is very very big foreign people must understant that a lot of tourism businesses in greece are very nasty and a lot of the times they avoid to pay taxes, dont give you your receipt have underpaid and overworking employes with very bad living and working conditions (just imagine salt baes restaurant in mykonos got busted for avoiding to pay taxes) and the point i am trying to make is that a lot of the money that comes from tourism doesnt flow into the economical system

  125. As Greek Cypriot who has been to Greece, the islands are quite nice but of course you can’t just forget the entire country. I haven’t been to Thessaloniki yet but I have been to Athens..

    Be careful of your items. There are lots of people trying to sell you things in Athens. So there is a good chance someone can steal from you. A friend of mine had medication in his hotel room and he believes the maid took some. (The hotel sucked. Don’t go to Arethusa hotel). Aside from that Athens is ok. Not super good.

    Aside from that we Greeks (from everywhere) usually are of course nice (some can get angry but eh which culture doesn’t have angry people) and there are some great monuments to check out. The acropolis in Athens is beautiful.

  126. Ένα σχόλιο για το Σειταν Λιμένα στην Κρήτη με το που το ανακάλυψαν οι τουριστικές εταιρίες κ έβαλαν πούλμαν και το διαφημησαν έχει χαλάσει ήταν ήδη ενασ μικρός χώρος τώρα δν μπορείς ούτε την πετσέτα σου να βάλεις επίσης έρχονται (όχι μόνο ξένοι αλλά κ Έλληνες) υποτίθεται για να θαυμάσουν την ομορφιά αυτής της παραλίας αλλά για κάποιο λόγο δν χρησιμοποιουν τα χέρια τους για να μαζέψουν τα σκουπίδια τους με αποτέλεσμα πίσω από κεθε φυτό αν κοιτάξεις είναι γεμάτο σκουπίδια

  127. Greeks don’t like foreigners especially at this time. if they do it’s for the tourist business only. Rbnb is raiding areas like Koykaki near the Acropolis in Athens and other areas, driving people outside of their homes cause the rents got higher. The current government employs even the police and enters peoples homes uninvited in order to instill fear on anarchists that have occupied buildings in Koykaki trying to resist the rbnb raid. Also the rents got higher in Athens like 400 euros for 50 cm in some areas and people are struggling to rent a home. Average salary in greece right now is 700 something euros and this if u are lucky to have a job. Those that work in the tourist industry work only in summer and before the summer months and have minimal working rights and are getting paid less and less. Most of them are students from the tourist industry that are being exploited, but even those who work for 3000 euros in 2 months are being exploited taking into account the huge profits of their employees. As for working rights and conditions? that went on a trip along the implementation of IMF and austerity policies. There are people offering drinks and walking bare foot in the sand of Myconos and sleeping in rooms under pools and other horror stories.. As far as Athens is concerned one can see that there has been a policy to move people out of the center of Athens since institutions like the national library and cultural centers are moving towards the beach(south). The government wants to sell the old airport in order to make an asian style casino “google this for the atrocious design”.If GDP is getting higher cause of tourism one can see it in the unemployment rate.. All in all welcome to the Banana Republic of Europe. Where overtourism has destroyed everything along with austerity policies. I bet most people don’t care about those “lazy scum greeks and just want to enjoy their sun”.

  128. I’ve traveled quite a bit for my age, but I have to say, Greece is THE most beautiful country ever. Might be biased cause Serbs and Greeks are historically close, but regardless… It has mountains, winter ski resorts, stone villages, rivers and forests, islands and beaches, delicious food, friendliest people. If you haven’t, visit ASAP ❤️

  129. GREEK ISLANDS worth looking


  130. One of the things that impressed me about Greece was that even in the most over-touristed places (Santorini, Acropolis in Athens etc), the local people did not seem jaded and did not hassle me for business like they do in some countries. I was half expecting to be hassled or ripped off due to the economic crisis and excessive tourism, but none of that happened. My favourite place is Crete, but don’t go there, I want it all to myself!

  131. Went last year and it was an amazing trip! Only did Athens and Santorini, but plan to go back again for the rest

  132. what a time to visit Greece 🇬🇷
    for the first time I’m going out of Qatar 🇶🇦 with my cricket team for a tour this April . Can’t wait to get into those beautiful beaches and cities🥰🥰

  133. Greece is simply amazing!….i am Greek by the way .If you like to find out some more about Greece and you have a Twitter account you can follow me on Twitter —-search on Google for “Vassilios CA Twitter”.

  134. I’ve been wanting to go ever since I watched The Sisterhood of Traveling Pants

  135. I just visited Aigina, it’s very underestimated. There are lots of historical monumens and is filled with great places to stay. Many of them you have to ask locals for directions, because the roads are tricky and most of them are from gravel.

  136. Greece, where everything is broken and most people only visit islands, that’s like saying Mayorca.

  137. Greece, the cradle of western civilization. 🇬🇷

  138. Visit Pakistan and see real beauty with worlds second largest mountain/ with worlds second oldest civilization(Indus civilization)

  139. So want to Visit for so many years …..& especially Hydra where leonard Cohen Lived & owned a Home.

  140. Everything sold in places for tourists is from China stay away. There are even places that serve frozen portions of food made in china.

  141. Not only Santorini or Mykonos.
    Look for Amorgos, Paros, Ios, Crete, Naxos, Zakynthos, Rhodes, Kerkyra or Mylos.
    For cities AND sea look Thessaloniki & Halkidiki, Athens, Nafplio, Mani, Sparta.
    For Mountains & ancients look Olympus, Macedonia (Pella, Dion, Amfipolis or Aiges), Mykinai or Delphi.

  142. As a Greek, I want to ask something from the people that will visit my country in 2020. Please, boycott the donkey rides at Santorini and use the lift instead. These animals are treated really badly

  143. Nice video!
    Greece has also other places to visit.
    One of this is Odontotos rack railway! Just search for it in Google!
    More that 200.000 people visit it every year!
    Because Greece is not so big, someone can start from airport Araxos near Patra and leave from Athens or Thessaloniki!
    Just rent a car and go around.
    It’s better than a vacation package!
    Travel as much as you can!

  144. An amazing destination in Greece is also Crete, country’s biggest island. Crete has amazing places to visit, incredible beaches, notable museums and sights and most important, we the Cretans are very hospitable!
    Greece’s beauty is not only about luxury hotels and restaurants in Santorini or Mykonos!

  145. Πόσο ευλογημένος αυτός ο τόπος, έχει τα πάντα. Τέλειο καιρό, όμορφα τοπία και υπέροχους ανθρώπους. Σαν την Ελλάδα πουθενά.

  146. I’m in Sydney at the moment, I’m one week I spend what I would have spent 2 months in Greece. And I even liked Greece better


  148. I’m Greek and I believe if you are tourist you must visit Athens,Mykonos,Santorini and Crete(Heraklion and Chania)

  149. Unfortunately no one mentions the even more beautiful Ionian islands and Ionian coast of Western Greece.
    From a North to south:
    Corfu, Parga, Paxos Island, Preveza, Lefkas Island, Cefalonia Island, Zakinyhos Island, Ithaca, Peloponnese West Coast.
    Google these places. These are true gems of Greece.

  150. Gyros has nothing to do with WW II. If someone brought it to Greece it was the Greek refuges fleeing from Turkish massacre following WWI

  151. Having being to all of Greece I can guarantee that it is one of those places that it is exactly as it looks in photos

  152. GUYS PLEASE VISIT NONPOPULAR ISLANDS like chios limnos Patmos Lesvos Ikaria Anafi Amorgos

  153. Im from crete greece and i have to say there are soo much more things to do here

  154. About food, go to Ioannina city areas and try the home made spinach pie etc etc. All the Greek “pies” are delicious!!! Also try “stifado”. Every foreigner I know love it.

  155. There are so many less known islands that are just amazing. After you do the Santorini Mykonos stuff try exploring rest of Greece. Both mainland and smaller islands. They are all magnificent.

  156. Εμμμ βέβαια. Υπάλληλοι των Αθηνεζων είστε και εσείς. Ούτε μια αναφορά στον Βορρά μας, στην Παοκάρα μας, στον Ιβάν τον τρομερό. Σας πόνεσε και εσάς το αήττητο φαίνεται. Ντροπή σας.

  157. Since Greece has the 3rd highest smoking rate in the world, good luck to anyone visiting there with asthma, or other respiratory problems! No, thanks! 😷😵

    Otherwise, it would be on my list! 😒

  158. Am I the only one who kinda cringed when they pronounced stuff wrong? 😂
    I mean i gotta admit everyone cringes when someone pronounced something wrong in their lamguage-

  159. I’m not actually from Greece but my country’s language is Greek (we do have our accent though) and we call “Dolmas” (5:00) as Koupepia.. 😂
    If you’re wondering where I’m from. I’m from 🇨🇾

  160. Baklava, Dolma and Döner is native Turkish dishes. Greeks are so ambitiously trying to still it from us god knows why?

  161. Ηere is a tip: DONT go to MYKONOS AND SANTORINI,too expensive/overrated and you can get much nicer experiences in other islands like RHODES (very cheap as well and has a lot of things to see) KOS,CRETE,SYMI etc

  162. 🇬🇷🇬🇷🇬🇷🇬🇷🇬🇷🇬🇷🇬🇷HELLAS
    Anatolia was Greek thats why Greeks came from there

  163. The people weren’t friendly at all specially if your from South Asia! This was quite evident on how your treated in stores and restaurants!

  164. 1. don’t go to Santorini or any of the touristy hotspots
    2. dont stay less than one week

  165. For summer holidays I prefer Italy, south France or Spain for nice and safe destinations. Greece is miserable and dangerous due to the overrated services and inadequate public infrastructure. I want being realistic about my country.

  166. I am from kashmir know as green land big mountain and the land of beautiful temperature now iam in greece I love greece irland and historic places of greece people of greece are very nice

  167. Well we’re so glad liking our country and we hope on case you travel there a great stay and have fun !!!! Euxaristo!!!🇬🇷🇬🇷🏖🏝

  168. Great video! But the pronunciations are killing me. Zah-keen-thos and Delphee 🙂

  169. Good for you to mention that Greece is a winter destination as well… People overlook that Greece is a mountainous country and it is bound to have snow in the winter, as well as ski resorts.

  170. When you visit and feel what Greece is, you simply wonder if God was at his best time when created all this beauty in such a small part of Earth.

    As a tourist you’ll find very helpful that almost everyone there speaks English & the feeling of safety although you’re away from home is priceless, Great people.

    Tip for the food lovers: Before travelling there, do some diet, so you can unleash the beast… ;p

  171. Epirus-Pindos National Park
    Mount Athos
    Greece is not only islands
    Μας τα πρήξατε με την Μύκονο και την Σαντορίνη

  172. Can u make another vid like this for other countries too? Like countries from Asia?? I really it will really be helpful

  173. Ελλαδα ειναι μονο μια …ο ομορφοτερος τοπος σε ολο τον πλανητη !!!!!

  174. Nice Video but the narration is a bit wrong on the historical fact. The pronunciation is absolutely Horrendous!

  175. If you’re looking for more affordable and beautiful places, there are literally thousands more besides Santorini and Mykonos. Yes, go there once for the experience, but places like Thessaloniki, Monemvasia, Pelio, Ioannina, Thassos, Pilos, Sparta, Chalkidiki (just to name a few) will give a true glimpse of how life in Greece is and how truly beautiful this country can be.

  176. Ελλάδα, η χώρα των θεών! Εξυμνήθηκε απο τους ξένους, όσο καμμιά άλλη χώρα στο κόσμο. Ελλάδα, το καμάρι της Ευρώπης, η χώρα που έδωσε τα φώτα του πολιτισμού στη Δύση, αλλά και σ’όλα τα μήκη και πλάτη της γης. Πολλοί την λάτρεψαν,
    και πολλοί την ζήλεψαν, και θέλησαν να την καταστρέψουν και να την υποτάξουν, για να καρπωθούν τη δόξα της. Η Ελλάδα ποτέ δέ πεθαίνει, θα είναι πάντα η “δάδα” που θα καίει, για να θυμίζει στην ανθρωπότητα, ότι απ’ εδώ ξεκίνησε το φώς της γνώσης.

  177. Attention tourists
    Greece has many islands, small, big, medium islands..
    Many islands are more beautiful than the famous islands, Mykonos, Santorini etc.
    I advise tourists who don’t like overcrowded places to visit smaller and less famous islands which are perfect for families and small kids, quite, safe, beautiful beaches, excellent food and much cheaper than the famous tourist destinations.

  178. If/When I get married (I’m only 14) and barring any massive economic crisis/nuclear apocalypse/plague/inhospitable environment due to climate change I want to honeymoon there.

  179. Hiii! So I happen to be Greek and here are some comments:

    1. Don’t go for the donkey rides in Santorini. The donkeys are treated terribly.
    2. The Statue of Athena does not exist anymore.
    3. Underrated tourist destinations: Thessaloniki (Greece’s second largest city with rich history, many museums and awesome food)
    The Ionian Islands (the Islands on the other side of the mainland)
    Nafplion (Greece’s former capital)
    Monemvasia (old fort city)

    That’s it! Hope you enjoy our country!:)

  180. Wow i feel Soo honored right now :’)))) thank you all.We are waiting for you in Greece and i hope you all have a wonderful time here <3

  181. “Yeah Greece looks very beautiful and better compare from any Asian country…” Coming from the Philippines.
