The hotel I showed in the video is the New York Plaza Hotel Apartments. I recommend reserving it online using this website: https://www.booking.com/index.html?aid=1724899 Or you can use that site to search for other hotels, apartments, hostels, etc.

Ah it's so great that you've shown how inexpensive Cyprus can be, a few people I know have said they wouldn't want to go because it's so expensive! The top hotels are pricey yes but eating and drinking as well as busses and entrance fees into places are not that expensive. I love all the archaeology sites, I love exploring tombs and all the ancient sites with many around Paphos. The last time we went (we stayed in Paphos) and paid for half a day Segway tour....it was amazing! The guide brought us to all the ancient sites and gave us history lessons along the way, well worth doing. The place was situated near the car rental place you walked past in the video, not far from the bus station. If your still there, I would definitely recommend. 😁 We've been 5 times now and each time hire a car and travel around the island, absolutely beautiful place with really friendly people. X

Internet is the most commercialized commodity in 2018 . If its slow in any place then it means its deliberate and you need to pay huge sum to get fast internet .

No fee to withdraw cash in Pathos.....love that! The New York Plaza hotel with a full kitchen and nice "room with a view" and balcony looked lovely! Even $60.00 a night during the "high Season" is still a bargain but $23.00 during the Winter is fabulous for a good size apartment. You can travel so well on a reasonable budget and stay for twice the amount of time in Cyprus as you might anywhere else near the Mediterranean Sea. The Cypriot food you showed looked so fresh, healthy and satisfying....for so little cash....what a great place!

Cyprus is NOT half greek and half turkish! Cyprus is a greek island where 36% is OCCUPIED by turks since 1974!

You look so happy and loosen when prices are low... from the number of times you mentioned Israel in the context of prices, you seem to have a need to avenge ...

Absolutely love Cyprus, our area is more Lanarca, Protaras but it is one of the best places that we have ever visited.

Cyprus has been a typical British holiday destination, which always put me off as I hate going to all those resort type places. But maybe I should check it out.

To be honest It’s not cheap is normal... imagine here in Cyprus minimum wage is 3.50 euro an hour

Paphos, Cyprus is beautiful. People probably enjoy the place in the Spring and Summer months.

Cyprus can be really expensive for tourist. Hotels can be really pricey but there are cheapest places to go rarher than staying in downtown. Like staying in Coral beach or bigger houses with many people, like family houses. Also for restaurants is better to go in the middle of the town. For clubbing and having fun downtown is the best place. For the most beautiful beaches are in Latchi Beach and Akamas with really nice 4×4 tours. Also rental car are better in the airpotrts. For drinks and staff also the best places to buy are the supermarkets, avoid suvenir shops and kiosk. There everything cost at least €2 more. Cyprus can be cheap if you are a tourist but you avoid to leave like a tourist i guess

Very good video mate! Me and my family go on holiday every year to Paphos and it was nice to see so many familiar places we have eaten and drank in before. Cyprus is a real beautiful island with an interesting history. Keep up the good work.

Was working out in Cyprus for a British Travel company back in 2013 nice to see you doing a video of this amazing Island. ☺

50 countries ! Yay ! . Thanks for the great videos. This town isn't particularly attractive but I'm sure in the high season it's bustling and a lot of fun. I liked the boy with the fish statue.

Hey Gabriel, great video as always! The "collection of scarves" hanging on the tree is nothing but offerings from people to Saint Solomoni. It is believed that she will cure the illness you suffer from if you tie a scarf outside the church.

Going in February is smart. You go to see what Cyprus is like not a bunch of tourists.

Nice video, Gabriel! Yes, except for the first restaurant things seem considerably cheap! The dinner looked wonderful. Filling, something that I desire. It's like my vacation on Terceira. Isl., Azores, PT. I could stuff myself, and more, if I were careful, on 12 euros. A decent dinner for about 18 to 19, and of course both about a 5-minute walk from the beach. What I've seen of Cyprus I like. Originally, there were a native people, not the Greeks; I think they still live there.

I am going to Paphos tomorrow. Your video was really helpful. Hope it's not too cold there.

Any livestreams soon?
If I want your opinion, I will give it to you!
Days to upload a video??????? Wow ... Is that what the citizens also have to put up with, in their homes?

Fly to Lemnos! So much to see there!

just a couple of things- next time you come, come in the summer and call me, us locals who grew up in North America and now live here, know and have seen the WHOLE island and we can show you the BEST places to eat at prices that will blow your mind- also, thanks for letting people know how COLD it can be here in winter- especially if you are from Alaska and saying how cold it is, it kinda confirms it- houses are built for summer not winter so be wary where you book if you come winter months- summer months start april ish until novemberish and october is the BEST month to come to Cyprus - thanks for the great video and remember that the WHOLE island has its pros and cons-
scott bowtell
That's not how you say Paphos... you say it as 'pathos' It's not half Turkish and half greek/Cypriot. It's 33% Turkish and 66% Greek/Cypriot.
Olga Spiteri
'please don't say Greek people ' it is Cyprian people!!!!! thank you :)

My dad was in Cyprus in WW2. He used to tell me about it. He flew fighter planes. I adore your videos.

In Israel hotel prices are high mainly because there is a shortage of hotel rooms. And why is there such a shortage? Because every now and then there is a war and/ or a military operation and then there is almost no tourism. So the investment in hotels is not worthwhile for entrepreneurs. But in recent years it has changed and prices may also vary accordingly. Regarding food, there is no big difference between the prices of food in Cyprus and the prices of food in Israel In restaurants. Only the beer in Israel costs too much, and I think the main reason for this is that Israelis do not drink a lot of beer. They drink beer as an entertainment, but not with food. And this creates a situation in which the owners of the bars have no fixed income as in European countries. Anyway you bought beer from a small brewery, a boutique brewery, supermarket beers cost cheap. The shoes you've seen are ridiculous, shoes in Israel cost $ 30-50 dollars. And the shoes you showed - I dont know what it is and who wearing them. Anyway, stop being so grumpy ... The world is big, you'll manage without us and we'll get along without you

Great video, Gabe. You should drive over to Protaras :D

U are so wrong about many things i dont know where to start. I would suggest talking to a local before making ur videos so u can get a better result and correct information

I'm from Scandinavia Europe and I can say that those food prices are far from cheap. In Spain, more touristy than Cyprus, food prices cost half, for example buffe in most of Spain's cities cost around 10-15 euros, I mean good buffe. but the hotel price is cheap where you live. Larnca is more touristy go there if you have the opportunity
August Moonlight
Awesome video as always. I have been following your vlogs for a year, I love the realistic approach to real time travel. This vlog inspired me to travel there based on the affordability itself" would you recommend a vacation there for a single mom of a teen, lol???? Thanks , greeting from Florida ! USA
Brock Ary
HEY GABRIEL, NICE VIDEO. I REALLY LIKED THE DINNER YOU HAD, MAKES ME WANT TO GO TO CYPRUS. MAYBE IN A FEW YEARS. BROCK
Oliver K.
The Airbnb‘s I stayed in in Cyprus had very decent wifi speeds (upload speeds 10mbps+)... the apartments were also very affordable. So I wouldn‘t say internet speeds are bad in general. If you need more infrastructure you should stay in Limassol or Larnaca.
Cynthia Carlson
As you become more successful (congrats!), it seems you are no longer a budget traveler.  I, too, travel the world and $16 lunches are a treat, maybe once a week or so, on my budget.  You could get lots of veggies for that money and use your kitchenette at the hotel.

Your delivery is far too businesslike ! Why are you doing this video ??? Is it a job ? Why you sound so frantic , fast and unchill man ?
