Best kept secret in the world..............

Postby Guinness » Fri Oct 14, 2005 14:58

Well I have just returned from the best kept secret in the world. It is truly an extraordinary place. The sunsets were awesome.

I had to be physically dragged kicking and screaming to the airport by my wife!! How can you console yourself after staying in such an idyllic place? Easy, book to go back next month!!

The locals were extremely friendly, and I couldn’t get over how inexpensive everything is in the local shops.

Here are a couple of examples for future travellers

Carton of Cigarettes 10.50 Sterling
Bottle of Vodka 5.25 Sterling
Phoenix local beer 30p small can (5%) :bier)

Sorry I didn’t pay attention to the food prices!!

One thing I would recommend is that rather than hire a car, strike a deal with a local taxi driver (I paid 1500 rupee for a full day) and we drove around the island. You can see much more when you are a passenger.

The main advantage is being able to stop for a few glasses of wine before moving on!

Lastly, thanks to this forum for the kind advice issued earlier

You're not drunk if you can lie on the floor without holding on.

So glad you had a fantastic time. Just out of interest, whereabouts were you staying? What hotel / part of the island? And what was the weather like as I am due to go next September / October. Would be great to hear from you.
