I have been to more than 10 countries, and my favorite is Switzerland, and Switzerland in Switzerland is one of my favorite cities! Perhaps the quality of life in developed countries is high, the residents here are very leisurely, have not heard the rush of footsteps, the streets are also good alleys, are lazy! The locals or three or five gathered in the cafe to chat, or take a dog to walk around the street to take a walk. The ice cream hawkers at the lake bought a chocolate and mint-flavored snowball, taste nice, like to sit in the sky You can buy a ticket for the first round, and look at the scenery of Geneva in the air with a God view! Here the autumn is picturesque, the golden leaves fall to the ground, sitting in the woods, don't mention how comfortable.
How do you feel when you live in a comic book? The mushroom is at the IBIS Hotel in Geneva, Switzerland, but I really feel it. Today, the mushroom will recommend the IBIS Hotel in Geneva to the small partners, and hope that the innocent friends can also feel it.
The hotel is located in the heart of the small town of Carouge, Geneva. It has carefully selected 6 unique cartoonists to work together to create 119 rooms with unique personality and a world of comics! Each person is responsible for the comic design of a whole floor room, so these 119 rooms represent six different comic worlds.
First entered the hotel, as if walking into the comics center in Brussels, looking for the adventures of Tintin! Find the world of the Smurfs. Comics are no longer the privilege of children. Often the depth of the heart touched by the brush is the depth that many film and television works cannot reach. The cartoons often give me creative self-brainstorms.
I believe that many of my friends like mushrooms, like to feel the local characteristics while traveling, feel the local culture, I hope you can also keep the children to understand the beauty of the world.
10 yuan can't be bought in this water, every step is a postcard! !
When you go to Geneva, Switzerland, you will find a sentence in the travel brochure: "There is no Swiss who thinks that Geneva belongs to Switzerland." You may be curious, but only if you really come here will you find that this sentence may be true. As the second largest city in Switzerland, the city of the world, the capital of watches and clocks, the headquarters of various international organizations occupy half of the city, and people from more than 200 different countries occupy the population of the city. One of the points. Geneva borders France, so you can find a lot of French imprints here, there are many ancient churches and romantic French architecture. Most locals here speak multiple languages, but mainly French, German, Italian and English. Life in Geneva is very slow, and the rules are punctual and trustworthy, especially in the winter. At 8 o'clock in the evening, there is no figure in the street. After ten o'clock in the evening, I couldn't be embarrassed. Even a young man took a bath at midnight and was taken to court by the neighbor. The supermarket store is closed at 7:00 in the evening. In order to ensure that each worker has enough rest time, the law even stipulates that all businesses are not allowed to open on Sunday. If you live in Geneva, you may be happy and yelling, no more overtime! !

Globus Personally think that it should be a very famous shopping center, there are many places, and it is definitely a high-end department store in Geneva. Geneva's Globus is located in the old town, where a variety of well-known brands, dior, channel, lamer, Hermes, etc. are gathered. Some of your thoughts are here, and the ones you see are complete here, of course. There are also many brands that are only available in foreign countries and not in China.
About tax rebate:

Personally recommend to use a credit card to purchase directly, sometimes it is convenient to do tax-free processing directly when you consume. If you are going to apply for a tax refund, and remove the handling fee, it is probably about 5%~
key focus! !
You need to spend at least 300 Swiss francs, which is about 2100 yuan to apply for tax refund! ! !

The UEFA headquarters stands quietly on the shores of Lake Geneva. The surroundings are very desolate. There is really no one. I can only occasionally see someone playing football on the opposite football field. The street signs at the station are also very small, and it is easy to miss if you don't pay attention.
UEFA headquarters is not open to the public, but here is a big difference with China, in addition to their office location, the surrounding natural environment can still let visitors browse.
Along a path from the side of the road to the lake, we walked around the perimeter of the UEFA headquarters for half a lap, although the surrounding area was blocked by tall green plant walls, but You can also faintly see the beautiful building inside the floor-to-ceiling windows. The whole building is very clean and bright, and almost every office is a floor-to-ceiling window surrounded by green plants. It is really green with a look. There are almost no outsiders visiting here, but occasionally there are small birds breaking into the forbidden zone, where they can work, and they can always look up and enjoy the beauty of Lake Geneva and the opposite of Ivar, France. It is really enviable. !
