Mykonos is a popular tourist destination in the Greek islands of the Cyclades group, situated in the middle of the Aegean Sea. Mykonos is located south of Tinos, east of Syros and north of Paros and Naxos.
Mykonos is famed as a cosmopolitan destination amongst the Greek islands and widely recognised as one of the great travel meccas. It is one of the most touristed islands in the Aegean. This means that visitors should be prepared for loud dance clubs on parts of the island, an option to have 'English' breakfasts that could consist of an egg, some bacon and a few rolls with butter, and some over-priced merchandise. Mykonos, along with Santorini, is more expensive than other Greek islands. If you have a room in the centre of town, expect to be woken by people going about their business in the early hours of the morning - this could be people arriving back from a nights clubbing or local bakers who arrive very early for work every day of the week. Although a lot of the streets in the main town are closed to traffic, locals get around on mopeds/motorbikes and on other motorised contraptions, and once again, they make quite a lot of noise in the early hours of the morning if they go past your open window. If you don't have a room that offers air conditioning and you are planning to keep your windows open at night, some ear-plugs might be an idea if you are a light sleeper.
