Saint-Tropez has always been one of the places I wanted to visit. We always hear about this little town, made famous by Brigitte Bardot, still a destination of Hollywood actors and European royalty alike. After an hour and half ferry ride from Cannes, we got to see this little fishing-village and all it’s large yachts and luxury shopping houses. I wasn’t too impressed.

Maybe because it’s the height of summer season and it was packed by tourists. Maybe, it’s walking around the 90-degree weather. Maybe it’s because it’s all superficial for me. The ambiance was getting repetitive, coming from Nice and Cannes. To the town’s defense, I was only there for a few hours and I must have missed a lot of things but it was too long of a visit for me. I am sure a lot of people would still want to come here but for someone who wanted to experience more culture, this wouldn’t be a place to go. At least I don’t think so. I must add that it is a commitment to visit Saint-Tropez. It is not easy to get to, by driving or by rail. Probably the best way is to catch the Ferry like what we did.

Looking back at these photos, I might say it wasn’t too bad. Summer in the South of France. Who wouldn’t want that? But will I go back to Saint Tropez? Maybe not. Different strokes for different folks.
