The locals are proud and friendly, and are the kind of people who maintain their beliefs and traditions, specifically their love for music. Despite the booming tourism, the island is still abundant with traditional mountain villages and farming communities, shown evidently by shepherds taking care of their flocks and men and women wearing traditional clothing. The food here is exceptional, and is well-known for its longer-lasting qualities – something that piques the interest of so many tourists.
Yearly, Crete becomes a host to the flocks of tourists visiting the island. The northern coast is amassing a large number of hotels, yet, the island remains large enough for travellers who want to explore quiet beach areas and mountain settlements.
The island can be reached through three airports, namely, Nikos Kazantzakis in Heraklion, Daskalogiannis in Chania, and Sitia. It is only the latter that doesn’t serve international routes. Plans to replace Heraklion are ongoing, since the government thought of constructing a new one in Kastelli due to the existing air force base there. Most tourists make use of the ferries mainly because there is a lack in modern highways, even though the road system leads to almost everywhere on the island.
