Site of the world famous film festival, Cannes is surprisingly quiet when the festival isn’t in town. It is a pleasant little town and has all the trappings of a town struggling to maintain an identity as a upscale town. Around the train station lies a very multicultural neighbourhood and has the typical ‘around the train station’ feel. There is one glitzy shopping street that doesn’t resemble the outlying streets. Nonetheless, the conference centre and the harbour are beautiful. I can just imagine this town transforming into quite a party.
