Its been years since I've visited, but... it likes to call itself the city of festivals, so check out their website and time your trip accordingly. I think if you make an honest effort to master and use the 4 to 8 necessary French words you'll get by in English just fine. "Please, Thank You, Right, Left, How far ... ,Where is ... , How much .... , etc."I've been in the summer. It can be a fun town. I like the fact that you don't have to be a part of a group to go out and enjoy yourself. People are open compaered to the states. That being said, they do prefer french over english
Ah...Quebec City... I really want to go there.If you are going to party, here's my advice...
The strip clubs are expensive, and the hottest girl is Joanine (sp?) at Super Sexe! I went with my girlfriend and another couple, and we all got dances from her. Full contact clubs are way better than what they have in the US
Also, pregame because everything is really expensive and, if you go to the clubs, watered down.
Montreal food is mostly crap compared to what you'd find in places like NYC or Boston, and the prices are very high. There's some interesting shopping around, also, but it's still pricey compared to the States.
Personally, I found Quebec City to be a more interesting place to visit because it's just fun to walk down the city streets, stop in at little shops, sit around and people-watch. It has much more of a European atmosphere to it. Montreal is an expensive party town for people under 21 who can't party in the US.
Now I REALLY want to go. Art and culture thrive in run-down areas. If tourists say they don't like certain areas, they're usually areas I want to be. Iscariot! We're going to Montreal!I was disappointed by Montreal to honest. I was there last october and i felt its really missing some kind of stand-out feature. It is also very run-down in certain areas.
Mmmm....crêpes!Well the French have always been partial to a crêpe or two…
I got by with no French at all .I know enough French to get by.
Its pretty good, but it didn't wow me. Then again I went on a coach tour.Ah...Quebec City... I really want to go there.
Now I REALLY want to go. Art and culture thrive in run-down areas. If tourists say they don't like certain areas, they're usually areas I want to be. Iscariot! We're going to Montreal!
Trust me... old buildings, bridges, churches, etc gets a little dull after a while.Well, I can't imagine much in North America being better than the Netherlands. Yeah, you are spoiled and I'm jealous.
LOL, it was cheaper than taking the public bus And as I can't drive (yet) I don't have any better options . Next time I'm taking the public bus as it was much worse than the tours I've taken in other countries.A coach tour? For shame! Have you learned nothing in your travels?
