    The town of Kos is oriented around the ferry terminal. There's a castle, an agora, several outdoor cafes and a mosque that has been converted into a cafe and news stand.

    Very nice island. Not even entirely overrun by tourists (stay out of Kardamaina and you'll be OK). I definitely recommend renting a scooter and doing a day-trip around the island.

    Also, the nearby island of Nisyros is worth checking out.

    Stayed at http://www.afendoulishotel.com/ -- highly recommended. The owner Alexis is a great host.

    Fantastic for shopping little alley ways of shops leading in to a bizare market.Restaurants are plentiful.Catch the ferry to Bodrum in Turkey for the day and very cheap shops.

    You often hear about the larger islands -- Santorini, Rhodes, etc -- but the Greek island of Kos deserves recognition, partially because it's so close to Turkey. You can take a quick ferry into Bodrum, one of the most active towns on the turquoise coast. Plus, ancient ruins abound on the island, as does delicious food and a wide range of hotels and guesthouses.

Description

Kos Town was founded in 366 BC, on the same site as the present town, in the north-eastern part of the island. It is a blend of ancient, medieval and modern architectural style, and is flooded with greenery. The wide streets lined with trees create a relaxing atmosphere in the town. The imposing Castle of the Knights of Saint John stands on the eastern side of the harbour and is connected to the ... read more
rest of the town by a bridge crossing Palm Tree Avenue. The Municipality of Kos is preserving the historic centre by trying to turn it into an exclusively pedestrian district. Various cafes, taverns, restaurants and shops can be found in Kos Town as well as a plethora of clubs and nightclubs, which transform the town into a hot spot during the night.
