Singapore, March 3, 2017
Direct flights with the new SWISS flag ship 777-300ER from Hongkong, Singapore and Bangkok will ensure a perfect start in Switzerland. With the Swiss Travel Pass, you can board the train to the Lake Geneva Region and experience the home of the Olympic Museum, the Lavaux Vineyards, Charlie Chaplin’s world, without forgetting the Chillon castle or Glacier3000.
There’s no end to the delights of the spectacular Swiss Riviera at Lake Geneva Region. This region stands for its picture-postcard vistas, flower-fringed promenades, rolling hills and romantic waterways. Its food and wine is also considered as among the best in the country. Iconics “must do” or “must-see” includes the UNESCO vineyard of Lavaux or the GoldenPass train ride to Gstaad (and Interlaken) or a relaxing excursion on one of the many paddle steamers cruising Lake Geneva.
The city of Lausanne attracts both business travellers and tourists alike and is well appreciated for its gourmet and trendy restaurants, boutique hotels and a vibrant nightlife. Additionally, Lausanne provides many opportunities for shopping in the old town and the new districts and hosts major international sporting events. The Olympic Museum provides a surface area of 3,000m2 devoted to exhibitions, 1,500 objects and 150 screens to relive great Olympic moments. One of the most recent hotel openings in Lausanne is the deluxe Hotel Royal Savoy with 196 rooms. It is divided between the original historic building and a new Garden Wing and provides a 1500 sqm Spa area as well as many banquet & conference facilities, accommodating up to 485 guests. AQUATIS, the largest European fresh water aquarium will open its doors this summer. Another future event will take place in 2020 when Lausanne and the Canton of Vaud will host the Winter Youth Olympic Games in 2020.
Montreux Riviera is especially famous for the many international festivals and events taking place. Whether it’s the world famous Montreux Jazz Festival in July or the Christmas Market in December, it is always worth a visit. A “must-see” is also the Chaplin’s World, a fascinating museum revealing the private life of the man and the artist Charlie Chaplin and a journey on top of Glacier 3000. But also Chillon Castle should not be missed as one of Europe’s most fascinating castles and most visited historical monument in Switzerland. The Clinique La Prairie in Clarens-Montreux has established over the years an international reputation as a world-renowned medical clinic and wellness destination. Equipped with the latest technology and 50 leading specialists, the clinic offers a holistic approach to healthcare and wellbeing in a tranquil and sophisticated environment. Also a place to visit is nest, a completely new discovery space where Nestlé provides an insight into the very foundations of the company at its birthplace in Vevey. Nest is much more than a museum, nest takes the visitor through the 150 years of history of a truly unique brand.
