I'm off to Cyprus tomorrow with our lass and the kids , we are going to Paphos , any info I need , places to see etc ? I'm hoping not to spend too much as this is not my main holiday for the year.

No biggie like, there are a lot worse things for you than using steroids, I mean I probably shouldn't have been smoking crack or getting into bar fights at your age TBH  - drab4

    There is a Chinese restaraunt on the front road of Paphos. Overlooking the sea. You will have to go down and book it if you want to go because it is really busy.

    I ate there and it is possibly better than some chineses over here. Try it. It isn't too pricy either.

    Forgot to say if your into history stuff do the tombs of the kings. But not a midday though when I did it because it was too bloody hot.

    Try Fasouri (sp) water park, bout half hour drive from paphos well worth the day there for adults and children alike.

    PS the lifeguards there could have walked straight off the set of baywatch, those ladies are fit!!

    aphrodites rock and baths are worth visit, cyprus is quite pricey now tho, remeber tho u can barter for pretty much everything. should be able to hire a vitara jeep for 24-26 quid a day.

    u can drive to aya napia in about 2 hrs as long as uset off either early or late to miss the majority of traffic!!

    I've been to cyprus 6 times and I'm going for a 7th on august 24th, I can safely say the way to see cyprus is with a hire car. Just get one and drive absolutely everywhere on the island, theres so much to see, go up to the mountains for a day thats pretty cool, go see the green line in nicosia or even go over to the turkish half if you want, theres a place near ayia napa you can go as well where you can see famagusta, one of the only ghost towns in the world!

    If you go to polis you can go to aphrodites baths, head towoards Pissouri and you'll see a big rock where aphrodites birthplace was, head towards limassol from pissouri and go through the army garrison and you can go to Curium ampitheatre, and the beach is pretty good as well!

    I'm probably too late now but what the hell.....

    Cyprus is great, we go most years, and is where I proposed to my other last year (on Paphos harbour ).

    The Chinese restaurant is the 'Phuket' and is worthy of a few visits, as is the Sissyfoss (other side of road) and El Faros in Coral Bay.......Fat Mama's too if you want to gorge yourself.

    We always hire a car and places for the kids would include the Donkey Sanctuary, where you can take one for a walk (take plenty of water!). Aphrodires baths is a bit boring, but Adonis' baths are great with swings and waterfalls to play on. Aphrodite's rock is a nice spot, but don't dive off! I spent a night in hospital last year after smashing my face on a submurged rock.....very nasty (but they beat the hell out of the NHS and accept the E111 now so you pay nowt).

    You're in for a treat mate, enjoy it!

    One thing i remember about my trip to Cyprus was that it was quite expensive to eat and drink over there. may have all changed since then as that was back in 1996! LOL

    Nice place and a good laugh!
