Shopping in Milos Island - authentic goods, best outlets, malls and boutiques

Having visited Milos, you should definitely bring home at least some olives. They are sold here in huge quantities, of different varieties and species, both fresh and canned. Ideally, you should find the most delicious ones during the holidays and then buy them as a souvenir. A bottle of olive oil will be a good gift to relatives and friends. Oil differs not only in the shape and size of the bottles but also in the manufacturing method, which directly affects the price. Extra-Virgin Olive Oil – the first cold-pressed oil, the highest quality and the most expensive, Virgin Olive Oil is somewhat cheaper, and Pure Olive Oil, a mixture of first-pressed and refined oil, is better to use for frying.
Milos is known to the whole world as a place of discovery of the famous statue of Venus de Milo, which now is in the Louvre. This is a calm and rather uncrowded island with a rich history … Open
Be sure to take with you at least some local cheeses. They spoil pretty quickly but if the trip is not too long, they will survive. The taste of the cheeses here is simply amazing, as is their variety. From sweets, it is worth paying attention to sokolatakia, sweets with different flavors, wrapped in foil, baklava, and Turkish delight. A local coffee will also be a good purchase. The Greeks are very picky about this drink, and therefore in the shops of Milos, you can find only its best varieties of high quality.
Another delicious souvenir from Milos is local honey. Despite the similarity between the Cyclades, there are differences in the prevalence of a particular plant, and honey from each part of the archipelago is unique. From alcoholic beverages, in memory of the trip, you can buy Metaxa. A mixture of wine and brandy, infused with herbs, is of different quality here: there is an elite one, 12 * and 7 *, a simpler 5 * and an “economy option” 3 * and 2 *. Another true Greek drink is considered anise vodka ouzo. For tourists, it is sold in both ordinary and souvenir bottles in the form of ancient deities. You should also buy a bottle of grape vodka and a unique Greek variety of wine called Retsina. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
The taverns of Milos will allow you to enjoy all the iconic dishes of the Greek cuisine. If you are interested to try everything exactly how the Greeks prepare food for themselves and not … Open
In the local pharmacies and specialty stores you can find good natural cosmetics based on olive oil. There is also soap with various additives, and all sorts of shampoos, balms, masks, and scrubs. It’s better not to buy such things from someone on the street – it’s hard to say what could be in the composition of a product. The samples of local ceramics can also be bought as a souvenir. No wonder the Greeks improved their mastery of potters for thousands of years: the variety and quality of the production of clay products are amazing. Here you can find painted plates, and all kinds of jugs, mugs, amphoras, and pots for cooking. Everything is beautiful and very practical.
You can also bring with you from the island the works of the local artists. Churches, historical sights, untouched nature – all this attracts to Milos both beginners and professional painters, who sell their paintings at reasonable prices. A very popular but rather expensive souvenir is an icon. A large number of churches and believers in the population lead to the spread of sales of all kinds of church utensils on Milos. The icons here are both classic and carved, and with precious stones. Do not just pay attention to the supposedly "historical value": it's all nothing more than unsubstantiated statements by merchants who want to sell the product more expensive. No one will sell truly valuable icons in the stores or on the street.
While talking, the Greeks like to raise their voices and actively gesticulate. When talking to a local resident, remember that some gestures here have a meaning different from the … Open
You can buy here local shells and products from them. Sea sponges are sold at the market in large quantities. It is better to take those that have undergone minimal chemical treatment. There are no stores for branded clothes and shoes in Milos, so if you want to buy a t-shirt or purse, then take a look at things from the local factories. The quality, especially of leather products, is high. You can buy a handmade blanket made of wool, an embroidered napkin, and lace from local craftswomen. Jewelry on Milos is made in the Byzantine style and is sold at an affordable price.

Thailand Wants to Resume Tourism by July 1

Known as Open Thailand Safely, the petition was sent to the Royal Thai Government. As vaccination programs are active in the US, Europe, and many other important source markets, Thailand might be able to review its restriction policies. The pandemic has been a serious hit for the country’s tourism. Hotels in Bangkok, the most visited city in the world, were always full of guests. Thailand is also a popular beach holiday destination. Not only hotels in Pattaya and Koh Samui are suffering. Many local businesses are almost completely targeted at tourists, and now they are mostly out of work. Read this
