My transfer from the island of Rhodes to the island of Kos was by ferry. On sundaymorning the ferry took off in the harbour of Rhodes Town and after an hour it made a stop at the island of Symi. Symi island is one of the gems of the Dodecanese island chain. It is mountainous and includes the harbour town of Symi and its adjacent upper town Ano Symi. The economy of Symi was traditinally based on shipbuilding and sponge industries. Nowadays tourism is the main industry and the island stands out for its beautiful architecture and colorful houses.
After 15 minutes in the harbour of Symi the ferry continued for another hour to the island of Kos.
