Greece the Squeaky Wheel

English: Various Euro bills.

This is not the best time to go to Greece, I would think. There have been some riots breaking out here and there, but with their stand in the Euro Zone so tenuous, it seems there will not be any bargains to be found. The UK travel advisory site is offering warnings. You can see them here.

When reading the news about travel to Greece at this time, there is the positive and negative view of it all.

There are some bargains to be had.
There may be a better exchange rate for some currencies against the Euro (if they can hold on to it).
Less crowds

If they lose the Euro, there will be chaos with prices.
Hotels had delayed openings due to fewer tourists over a 3 year period.
Stores have cut hours.
There are strikes happening suddenly.
Transportation strikes and cuts
Higher crime rate

It will be interesting to see how it all plays out.
