You can find convention centres across Crete, but the primary ones are in Heraklion. If your Crete hotel is elsewhere on the island, getting to Heraklion is not difficult. Public transport links are regular during daytime, but you may need to catch a taxi at night. The Creta Maris resort has convention rooms available that are capable of holding over 5000 people. Technical support staff will ensure your convention goes without a hitch.
From lamb kleftiko to feta cheese, Crete's dishes are served in many hotel restaurants from early until late. You can find other delicacies easily; you just have to pick your favourite. Try heading to marinas across the island to find fresh fish dishes.
Crete is a tourist destination, which means it is not hard to find souvenir shops. If your hotel in Crete is in the Hersonissos area, you stand a stronger chance of finding great fashion shops. Try the street market in Laiki for leather goods and unique rugs.
Escape from the world by heading to Samaria Gorge. You can get there by taking a ferry from Hora Sfakion, stay there for the day, and indulge in peace and quiet. If the island begins to bore you, take a ferry from Heraklion to one of the surrounding Greek islands.
Although Crete is a small island, it is large enough to have two football teams. Visit the island at the right time and you might even catch the Cretan Derby. This derby sees Heraklion's two football teams clash in one of the island's stadiums.
