Shops are happy in Oia11:03 PM Wednesday September 25, 2019 |

According to the owner of the Rolex store in Oia, sometimes there are seven cruise ships that come to Oia in one day alone. Assuming there are 1,000 passengers on each boat, that means 4,000 tourists descending upon Oia at the same time. They are shopping for souvenirs, art, anything, and everything. Retail shops and restaurants are happy. Santorini gets thousands of visiting tourists from mainland China according to the owner. He told us one time his shop was already closed but he was still inside, he noticed a Chinese guy standing outside looking at the Rolex watches on the display cabinet. Two more buys joined him and they started pushing each other to go inside the store. One guy tried to open the door but it was locked. The owner motioned to them that the store was closed but the guy pleaded. As soon as the guy entered, he asked
“how much is that watch? The store owner said “Twelve thousand euro.”
Chinese tourist—-“I will pay you fourteen thousand cash.”
Store owner—“Oh sure.”

I have received about 7 messages from ohmybuhay readers wanting to visit Santorini but concerned about how the wheelchair-bound elderly would manage.
This photo gives you an idea of the narrow alleyways. Expect too that some alleys are jampacked with tourists and it would be hard to squeeze in. It is possible for persons with disability to come and enjoy in Santorini, with the assistance of their companions.
