Cyprus buses, taxis and finding your way around cyprus

Cyprus Buses, Taxis and Finding your Way Around Cyprus

Cyprus buses, First off let me just say that the buses in Cyprus aren’t brilliant. Unless you are on one of the main coastal roads or high ways you aren’t at all likely to be blessed with a bus service of any kind. There are however regular services between the main holiday resorts and Cyprus places of interest throughout the holiday season serving the tourist trade as well as many Cyprus charter services again operating mostly during the holiday season only. If you decide to take your holidays on the eastern side of Cyprus there is a great regular service operating between Paralimni and the water park in Agia Napa which stops of in Pernera as well as the main resort of Protaras.

These Cyprus buses aren’t the most modern fleet in the world and with so many stops along the way I wouldn’t describe it as an express service either but it is fairly reliable. Although there are plenty of official bus stops along the route the drivers aren’t adverse to picking you up if you flag them down most anywhere. The fares are mind blowingly inexpensive too but that goes with the territory in Cyprus so don’t expect to be traveling in luxury. In fact some of the older Cyprus buses don’t even have aircon apart from the windows down both sides. They also appear to be fitted with a unique gearbox that has only two speeds. STOP! and flat out Go! so hold tight.

If the joys of coach travel don’t readily appeal to you there are plenty of stretched taxis that will easily accommodate seven or eight passengers and an increasing number of mini buses with even more space inside. These Cyprus taxis or mini buses are a great way to get around and you can share the cost with a group or family trip to just about anywhere in Cyprus you please. Always be sure to fix the price though before you agree to the journey. On the whole the taxis and mini buses in Cyprus are “price fixed” by government or local licensing authorities but that doesn’t always stop some drivers forgetting to switch the meter on. They prefer instead to make it up as they go along and although they are in the minority you should always fix the price before you get into the vehicle.

If you want to see more of this beautiful Mediterranean paradise there are literally hundreds of companies offering excursions by coach or even Cyprus jeep safaris into the less accessible parts of the Island. If there is a group involved you may want to consider a hiring self drive mini bus or people carrier and have the total freedom to travel where ever in Cyprus the fancy takes you. Stop off when and where it suits you without having to stick to the set timetable or itinerary of an organized coach tour. Whatever you decide it would be a shame not to explore at least some of Cyprus whilst you are there.

For those who wish to see a lot of the Island whilst having the independence and freedom to do so at their own pace there is only one real option. Cyprus car hire or car rental as it is also known. There is no doubt that having the use of a hire car throughout the duration of your Cyprus holiday is a much superior option to jumping on and off the Cyprus bus service or paying out for taxis on a regular basis. The roads are well signed and the directions are in English so getting around Cyprus by hire car is totally stress free. They even drive on the left like the U.K. so for many it will be like motoring at home without the traffic problems or hassle.

Another advantage of car hire over Cyprus buses is that you can collect your Cyprus car rental at the airport and drop it off there when you return thus saving the transfer fees from the airport to your accomadation. There is really no better way to get around the Island and the rates are quite realistic too when you take into consideration that Cyprus is an holiday Island. So there you have it then. The choice as they say is yours to make. Taxis, minibuses a car rental package or those weird and wonderful Cyprus buses.

Learn how to explore arizona tourism

Learn How To Explore Arizona Tourism

Arizona tourism is a state that has attracted visitors from not just around the United States, but also other parts of the world. But just what is it about the state of Arizona that attracts so many visitors each and every year? While it may be the mild winters that attract many snowbirds each and every year, there are many attractions that are contributing factors that can be added to the list of reasons why people want to explore Arizona. Certainly, the Grand Canyon is an attraction in of itself, but if you took away the Grand Canyon, there are still many other attractions that this desert state has to offer. Is it because of the diverse climate where people can travel to the north to cool off in the summer heat or to access the many lakes where they can go boating or fishing? Or is it because in the heart of the winter, visitors can travel to the north where they can go skiing in the mountainous regions? The fact is, Arizona tourism is popular because of the wide range of opportunities in virtually any part of the state. Arizona tourism is known for the all-year round golfing weather and many travel to the state to do just that. Many love to take an AZ vacation for the breathtaking views of Sedona, where anyone who has visited Sedona, will likely tell you that you have to experience Sedona to really understand just how beautiful it really is. If you have not researched the outdoor activities that await you, you might be pleasantly surprised to learn that there are many, many lakes that offer the best of summer fun, no matter what that picture looks like to you. Water-skiing, fishing, boating, hiking, golfing, and sightseeing at the Grand Canyon or Sedona are a couple of real key hotspots in the midst of the summer in sunny Arizona. Arizona tourism can also be experienced in the southern part of the state where you will find historic Tucson. There are may other things to do in AZ such as traveling to the White Mountains, the city life of Phoenix or Scottsdale that also attract travelers from other parts of the country as well as foreign countries, too. It really would be hard to provide one simple answer to the question as to why Arizona is so popular with visitors. The fact is though, depending on who you ask, you might very well get a different answer. All the mentioned reasons why people experience Arizona tourism are true. Size may also have something to do with the popularity of Arizona tourism, as well. Arizona ranks sixth among the states in size and is spread out over 114,006 square miles, (295,274 square kilometers), which includes 364 square miles, (943 square kilometers) of water, giving both visitors as well as residents plenty of room to experience Arizona. There is plenty of room to roam as Arizona boasts its total dimensions equaling 392 miles, north to south, and 341 miles, east to west. This might also explain why so many residents are more likely to stay in-state when planning their next vacation with one of the many Arizona attractions. During the hot summer months, while many Arizonans head further west to California, just as many, if not more, travel to the northern elevations such as Sedona, the Grand Canyon or the White Mountains where the weather is typically 15-20 degrees cooler. As mentioned, Arizona tourism is really popular all-year round with its diverse climate. Every year in the late summer to early fall, Arizona sees the snowbirds trickle in as the cooler air from other parts of the country convince them to flock to the Arizona desert until spring time when it warms up enough for them to return. Arizona tourism is also popular because of all of the 1-Day activities and other attractions, such as hiking. Arizona’s mean elevation is about 4,100 feet, or 1,250 meters. Contrary to what some may believe, Arizona is not a flat state with no color or wildlife! There are plenty of mountains to hike on with elevations that will astound you and a list of wildlife and colors that will likely make you want to discover all the desert wildlife that the Sonoran desert has to offer you. Arizona tourism allows everyone to explore the diverse landscapes that can be found throughout the state. Arizona travel also includes the magical (and mysterious, to some) red rocks and even snow-capped mountains. Arizonan truly has it all and there are plenty of things to do in AZ. No matter what your interests or skill levels may be, there is always an endless list of activities to suit anyone’s fancy! The AZ office of tourism understands their role and promoting the state and understand that the state depends on its yearly visitors. Whether it be a re-enactment of an old-west gun fight, river rafting, taking a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon or skiing in Flagstaff in the winter, the office of Arizona tourism has something for everyone in terms of fun. Many of the AZ lodging sites include the convenience of having a pick-up and drop-off point right at your hotel. Whether you are traveling to Sedona, Flagstaff, the Grand Canyon or some other popular city within the state, many of the tourist companies will cheerfully pick you up at your hotel and drive you back following the completion of your tour.
