5 Best Things That France Does Better Than Anyplace
There’s no doubt that France is the ultimate destination for cheese lovers. General de Gaulle once asked how he could govern a country that produced 246 kinds of cheese.
Maybe he was afraid they would start a revolution because they were living organisms. Reblochon cheese, for example, can be so stinky and runny that it seems to be decomposing.
The United States restricted imports of Mimolette last year because even mild; hard Mimolette is apparently scary. No one questions the existence of great cheeses worldwide, but a French citizen doesn’t have to go much further than the corner shop to find one.
There’s a reason the French invented the word “bourgeois,” which has since become synonymous with materialistic values. Whether you are looking for cheap generic brands or chic labels you feel like dressing up before you try them on, Paris department stores have everything.
There are unbelievable bargains to be had in January and at the end of June each year because, by law, all stores must offer discounts at the same time in order to compete for business.
The French have fought hard to keep their small, often family-owned neighborhood stores — boulangeries, boucheries, épiceries — from being steamrolled by chains. French boutiques are also known for their quirky style and one-off character.
Paris is no doubt home to the world’s most famous museum, the Louvre. France’s museum culture, however, extends much further afield.
The Loire valley is home to some of the world’s most beautiful museums — its beautiful chateaux include Chambord, with its captivating tapestries, and Chenonceau, with its moat and enchanting gardens.

The French driver’s sense of etiquette is strong and frightening: I’m going there, and you can’t stop me.
A person’s decision to go where they want will often result in an accident or gridlock, isn’t everyone else’s fault?
The French system of refusing to acknowledge any other car on the road — their supreme belief in liberté embodied in the automobile — creates huge traffic jams during the summer, especially on holidays, when everyone is driving to or from vacation at the same time.
It’s hard to pin down what makes someone sexy, but “being French” is a good term for some. In both men and women, that accent and sense of insouciance and joie de vivre make an attractive package.
And then, of course, there’s plain sex, which is everywhere in France.
It is almost a law in French films to show at least four buttocks and two naked breasts.
Women and men in France know how to play the attraction game to the same extent and rarely stop playing. Whenever anyone else is around, it’s almost a duty to look good and make a good impression.
