It has magical views...

Expect nothing less than picturesque landscapes with different kind of views when in Lausanne. Built on tree hills and surrounded by the UNESCO-heritage vineyards of Lavaux, Lausanne is also nestled nicely with Lake Geneva at its feet. Combined this with the attractive old town where cafes and boutiques dotted along its small alleyways, you’ll experience a quaint medieval city center in the very instant.

... And a magnificent lake

Lausanne is the second-largest city on Lake Geneva in Europe, so it is needless to say that water activities and views is an everyday’s treat. On top of your visual enjoyment, take pleasure to a new height by swimming, stand-up paddling or sailing on a boat to your heart’s content.


It's the San Francisco of Switzerland

Lausanne is structured in such a unique way that it’s nicknamed San Francisco of Switzerland. All thanks to the ups and down of its cityscapes, it’s actually possible for you to enjoy the exceptional views from any point of the region.

The nature in amazing

People visit Switzerland for one main reason: the nature. But to truly experience the most heavenly and blissful natural attractions, Lausanne is the perfect answer. It is the beautiful marriage of urban convenience, such as shopping centers, bars, cafes and more, and an easy access to many different parks, green spaces and forest. It is simply to wonderful to enjoy. Hike, walk, shop, relax and then continue to whatever outdoor excursion you may have, including skiing in the winter!


It's also foodie haven

If you love food, this is one of the best place in Switzerland where you can eat delicious meals with local and traditional produces. Visit the chocolate factory and learn how to make chocolate the swiss way, discover swiss wine and wine taste during Montreux or Cully Jazz Festival. The options is simply endless!


The best way to experience a city is to explore it like a local, not a tourist. Be sure that you don't miss out on the places in Lausanne that only the locals know.

1. Brasserie de Montbenon

It's one of the most beautiful terraces in Lausanne, it opens out onto a park where the children can stretch their legs and provides an unparalleled view of the Alps. This spot is a meeting point for families, culture vultures, artists and also and especially foodies, with dishes that wonderfully combine the latest cuisine with local specialities. Simply put, it is the place to be.

2. Le Deck

Located on Baron Tavernier, Route de la Corniche 4, 1070 Chexbres, this is the spot to enjoy the best view ever while sipping an amazing fruit cocktail in one hand and delicious meals in the other.

3. Lavaux

The region in the canton of Vaud in Switzerland, in the district of Lavaux-Oron, just 15 minutes from Lausanne by train. Lavaux consists of 830 hectares of terraced vineyards that stretch for about 30 km along the south-facing northern shores of Lake Geneva. You can hike, walk, take photos and just enjoy the magical landscape. Our tip : Take a bike and ride from Paudex to Chexbres!

4. The Chocolate Train

It’s just as good as it sounds, whether sweet or savoury is your pick. Departing from Montreux, the exceptional GoldenPass carriages carry their passengers to the mediaeval town of Gruyères and the Maison Cailler in Broc.

The seemingly endless grassland is located in Tanzania, Africa and is one of Africa’s most classic safari destinations. It’s the home of the Big Five, over 500 species of birds and Agrica’s most well-known great wildebeest migration.

With countless tour packages available for your choosing, more and more attractions are introduced including hot air balloon, camping, walking safaris and so on. Excitement aside, nothing beats the tranquility of just sitting and waiting for sunset or admiring the landscape up close.

Home to East Sumba’s savanna, the grassland expanse is an iconic jewel that will struck any traveler with an awe-inspiring wonder. Just a 30-minute drive from Waingapu, the open stretches of grassland gets even more dramatic with backdrop of rolling hills at one side and oceanic stretch at the other. Cue in the galloping sandalwood horses and there you have it, the best nature scene one could ever wish for.

In fact, the golden-yellow savanna and blue skies have made the screen plenty of times in the movies. It’s also a highly-requested prewedding location, all thanks to the beach that is adjacent to the meadow with the same name.

by Hendry for SweetEscape in Seoul

Nothing gets more instagrammable than the stretch of lovely pink savanna in the form of one endless park. It’s one of the most visited places in Korea during autumn, the pinkish and violet grass sway dreamily like one huge fluffy carpet.

The pink sea of flowers is not the only thing that you get to enjoy, because Nari Park also houses many different other floral species that share one thing in common : extra prettiness! Just get your camera ready and prepare to experience a day of natural beauty at its finest height.
