GUIDE TO VISITING BORDEAUX
Thanks to Alain Juppé, mayor of Bordeaux since 1999, Bordeaux has become one of the most attractive cities in the world to vist. Over the last seven years, major cleaning-up of the town, refreshment of buildings (especially in Chartrons district), establishing three tramway lines covering all Bordeaux and its outskirts, and making banks of Garonne free of old warehouses/storehouses, has been to great advantage for Bordeaux' habitants. Bordeaux offers you everything in finest quality - food, wine, shops, cultural events, restaurants, you name it. Prices are among the lowest in Western Europe.
If you want to relax after busy day, go to big park Jardin Public (close to Place Gambetta), a true oase in Bordeaux. Bordeaux is a true tourist paradise - discover it by yourself!
Bordeaux is the city in France, which has most protected buildings, so it's more than deserved, that Bordeaux has been included on UNESCO's list of world's cultural heritages.
Bordeaux is perfectly situated base, from which you can go by car/train in app. one hour to Pyla sur Mer, an app. 100 km long beach filled with white sand. There you can get the best seafood in Europe and by the way oysters here are counted among the best in the world. Same distance is if you go south from Bordeaux to Perigord, a world of truffles and foie gras.
