Hello! 3 friends and I will be traveling to Crete for the first time next week. We are staying in Chania for 7 days and would like to know a bit more about the island before setting off.
1. Where is the best place to stay for good value? We are 4 girls in early 20s. We plan to go out and explore nightlight in town, but also will enjoy the calmness of the seaside. We are looking into Frida apartments but it might be a little far from town?
2. What is the best way to travel and explore Chania? Are the busses regular? Can we travel by bike? We plan to explore the town with bike and take busses to gramvousa/balos/paleochora etc.
3. What are some nice attractions in Crete that's open in April? We like the outdoors/beaches and like to stay active. We heard good things about beaches like balos/gramvousa/elafonisi and attractions like samaria gorge/meskla/akrotiri. Are these places open in April? What are some other nice things to do in Crete?
4. How is the nightlife in Chania? Where are good local places to go to meet people our age?
Thank you all in advance! Cheers.
