Super travel tips, all road tested by David Herd. I'm an Australian guy who moved to Thailand in 2011 & still travel the world as often as possible.

Wealthy play in sexy St Tropez

Let the games begin.

Wealthy play in sexy St Tropez

Wealthy at play in sexy St Tropez, a place for sheer opulence, people watching, & great restaurants and bars. Please remember to take your money with you. 🙂

Boules-type games are traditional and popular in FranceItaly and Croatia, and are also popular in some former French colonies. In those countries, boules games are often played in open spaces (town squares and parks) in villages and towns. Dedicated playing areas for boules-type games are typically large, level, rectangular courts made of flattened earth, gravel, or crushed stone, enclosed in wooden rails or back boards.

Paella anyone?

The huge place des Lices Market is a kaleidoscope of everything from fruit and veg to antique mirrors and slippers. It’s truly legendary and It is studded with plane trees, cafés and (when the market’s not on) pétanque players.

Saturday is market day in St Tropez

The seaside resort town Saint Tropez is still very popular with the tourists, although the jetset and the in-crowd have long since left it behind. Set on the lovely blue water of the Bay of Saint-Tropez, this modern version of a medieval town is most popular for the line of yachts along the quay, and the facing line of terrace cafés, divided by a parade of strolling tourists.

Look at me, look at me. 🙂

Naturally all the chairs face the footpath so customers can ogle & gawk at the people passing, while pretending not too. 🙂

The famous Cafe de Paris.

There is of course another famous Cafe de Paris in Monte Carlo.

So many restaurants & so little time. 🙂

I guess I’m stating the obvious however you can get far better value for your money by visiting the restaurants a couple of blocks away from the sea front.

The old part of town is quite fascinating.

Behind the cafés, the small streets and old buildings are picturesque, but they’re more popular for the multitude of shops and restaurants than historical significance.

The back streets are interesting

Very interesting back streets of ST Tropez.

There are always luxury yachts cruising in the area.

Narrow lanes & arches

I’m sure this arch has not changed for hundreds of years.

L’Olive St Tropez

Surely this can’t be Bridgette Bardot. 🙂

Could this be a Trojan Horse?

Mt travelling companions Deb and Jodie heading for a night out, some guys bought them drinks and Deb in return shouted a round, 110 Euros later, some smelling salts were required for her to recover and fight another day.

There is always someone with a bigger boat.

Imagine the cost of filling this east up with fuel. 🙂

You can really smell the money here. 🙂

St Tropez boats

Super boat

Certainly not the prettiest boat in the harbour.

If you can’t afford a boat, get a bike.

Wealthy play in sexy St Tropez

Not much traffic here so a bike would be a safe way to see the city.

So many restaurants & such little time

l’auberge de maures is a very nice restaurant
