Here, Lonely Planet author, Jean-Bernard Carillet, tells us more.

    Bordeaux's Sunday market – Marche des Quais – on the banks of the Garonne is a lot of fun. We loved the fresh oysters, shucked to order

    I love Bordeaux.
    My only complaint is that there's hardly any foliage/parks/trees/green spaces, (like Nantes, for example).

    I prefer the city of Lyon, for the fact that it has great restaurants, has good diversions, it is a clean and dynamic and beautiful city, is close to the Burgundy, Alps and the Mediterranean.😉.

    LOL – Bordeaux is a hell hole, like the whole of France. Bordeaux's biggest attraction is the new TGV line to Paris… Maybe people should go to Paris instead (though as much of a hell hole Paris is, it's at least a real city, as opposed to a village)

    I don't understand, this choice has been made by French ? I'm happy of course, because I'm French but is it fair ? I'm still very surprised

    I burst into tears while watching this video. Brought back so many memories of my erasmus in Bordeaux. I will be eternally in love with this city and I dream that someday I will return.
