France Travel Tips
Chamonix - A Dream Holiday Come True
Chamonix. What else comes to mind if not visions of snow-capped mountains? Situated on the tallest peak in the Alps- the Mont Blanc- this enchanting French town is just 15 km from the Swiss and Italian borders. Chamonix has come a long way from when it was first discovered in the 18th century by two Englishmen, William Windham and Richard Pococke. Despite many changes since then, Chamonix has still managed to retain much of its traditional quaintness, with a beautiful mix of buildings from the baroque to the modern.
Eating in Paris
Paris has a long established reputation for being a haven for food, somewhat different from the way Hong Kong, for example, is famous for its own cuisine. There is a sense of class and high culture associated with French cuisine that is quite unique. With the help of the Guide Michelin star ratings, it has established itself into a hierarchy of top-class, outstanding and very good restaurants.
