Notes on French tourism

1. language

French is the national language of France. The French are always proud of their own language. Even if they can speak English, the local people will not take the initiative to talk to foreigners in English. So in France, please speak French.

2. time difference

The time difference between France and China is seven hours, but when it is summer time, the time difference between France and China is six hours.

The unified time used in China is the East eighth district (Beijing time), while that used in France is the East first district (Paris time), with a difference of 7 time zones. If it's 5 p.m. in France, it's 12 midnight in China.

France implements the summer system. Every year, at 2:00 a.m. on the last Sunday in March, the time is set fast for one hour, and then it is set back at 3:00 a.m. on the last Sunday in October.

3. climate

Although the territory of France is not large, it is also composed of many climates. Therefore, when traveling in France, we should choose the most suitable weather according to the different scenic spots we visit.

Spring: spring usually comes on April Easter. At this time, the weather in France is still cold and humid. You still need to wear sweaters, coats and other clothes.

Summer: it's hot and dry in summer. There is no plum rain season. In June, I occasionally feel cold. When I go to France, I suggest to bring some sweaters in case I need them.

Autumn: autumn begins in September. There is more rain and the temperature will drop about 10 ℃. Because warm clothes and umbrellas should be prepared here.

Winter: in winter, the temperature in France will also drop to below zero. At this time, the temperature difference between morning and evening is large. At this time, you need to consider the problem of good clothes when traveling. Warm clothes such as heavy coats and woollen coats are necessary.

4. Currency exchange

At present, the euro is used in France, and the US dollar is not very practical. Generally, all banking institutions and post offices can exchange foreign currencies. In addition, exchange points can be found near large shopping malls, stations, airports and tourist places. It is suggested that you should consult and confirm the exchange rate and handling fee before the transaction.

It should be noted that it is illegal to exchange US dollars for euros with local people.

French customs

The French pay more attention to the right of personal privacy and do not like to mention personal issues. So talk to the French to avoid talking about their family situation as much as possible, but also to avoid involving politics and money.

In the eyes of the French, '13' is a very unlucky number, and Friday is also a very unlucky number. Just like the number '4' in our eyes, it seems that it will bring about great disaster.

When visiting the French, don't forget to bring flowers, but pay attention when sending flowers. Don't send chrysanthemums, azaleas, paper flowers and yellow flowers. In addition, the number of flowers can't be even. And men can't send red roses to married women.

In addition, the French also taboo men to send perfume to women because it is too intimate and unlawful.

It is rude to open the gift package in front of the giver when accepting the gift.

Among certain social classes in France, kissing is also popular. During the hand kissing ceremony, pay attention not to touch the hand of the lady, nor the gloved hand, nor the hand of the girl in public.

The French also regard peacocks as evil birds and taboo cranes, which are the symbols of stupid men and prostitutes.

Necessary for French travel

1. The average temperature in Europe is 0-10 ℃ in winter and 20-26 ℃ in summer. It is suggested that you take the following clothes in winter: a suit, a tourist suit, a sweater, autumn pants and underwear, a down coat or jacket, and a pair of leather shoes and tourist shoes. I suggest you take a thin coat in summer to deal with the temperature difference between morning and evening.

2. European hotels often do not have disposable products such as toothbrush, toothpaste, slippers, etc. due to their environmental awareness, tourists should bring them with them.

3. The power supply in Europe is 220 V, and the sockets are round holes. When the charger, water heater and other electrical appliances are provided, they need to be provided with their own conversion sockets. What if you don't have a change-over socket? Can you try to borrow one from the hotel. What if I didn't borrow it? There's another way: most of the razor sockets in the bathroom are universal. Your charger may be able to plug in. Don't plug in the boiling water pot. The current is not enough. There is another way: if you can use USB port for charging, there may be a USB port on the TV.

4. Since pharmacies in Europe have to rely on doctors' prescriptions to buy drugs, and the medical expenses are expensive, they should bring common drugs in case of emergency.

5. The camera battery should be alkaline or rechargeable. There should be enough memory cards. These things are more expensive to buy in Europe than at home.

6. You must bring some small euro notes to Europe to avoid the inconvenience of exchange and exchange rate loss.

7. If you want to bring your mobile phone, please go to the local telecommunication bureau to open the international function formalities before departure.
