So the train got delayed by 1 hour en route from Rouen to Trouville-Deauville, and SNCF offered us the option for compensation for half the price of the one-way ticket.
I was really excited because it was our first trip travelling together as a Singapore exchange group in such a big group and Si Han and Kimberly, who’re the only ones not from Galois, agreed to join us!
Deauville is popular for those coming on a weekend trip to laze by the beach (when it’s not winter), gamble, watch horse-racing or simply to soak in the tranquility of this town.
View below shows the opposite side of Deauville, named Trouville. Trouville is more famous for its fresh seafood. There is a whole row of restaurants along the marina that serves fresh seafood.
At the beach of Deuville.
The names on this boardwalk is to commemorate the actors and directors present at the American Film Festival.
Had an overpriced lunch here (opposite the poshest hotel in Deauville, what can you expect…)
€13.80 for this pork belly filling crepe. It tastes good and surprisingly filling, albeit on the pricier side.
At the grandiose and most well-known hotel in Trouville-Deauville, Hotel Normandy.
We were lucky to have caught the weekend market! Check out the fresh and colourful produce.
Different types of sausages that are typical of France. Had my first taste of it in Paris.
Au revoir, Trouville-Deuville!
