Aix en Provence is so much better than Marseilles, which was a big disappointment when I visited a few years ago.

That Cassis village looks very nice as well, and those French restaurants look like the real deal (that sole looks delicious). I've seldom been disappointed in France, outstanding cuisine at reasonable prices, mostly. Somehow even the fast food tastes better.

Whenever I come France I try to come to Aix, so I was here last June too. Over the years I've seen Aix changed now its more crowded, in the past its more peaceful and quiet which I really enjoyed.

Marseille is a big contrast. Too crowded and unsafe. Just last Sunday I was picked, my sling bag gone in a restaurant with my passport and a earphone luckily money, cards and phones in my pocket. Sad.

Food in France is nice and special I have to agree and even their Magnum ice-cream tastes so so creamy and good. And yes McDonald's beef patty is also tasty and different.

Yong, I hope you sent the champaign back and demanded the correct glasses for it.

That is an absolute insult serving champaign in a cocktail glass instead of a flute.

Typical of the Parisians. Out of Paris they are far more civilized.
