Discovering small Swiss towns on the way to Chamonix – today’s town is: Thonex, Switzerland


I love videos like this because you get a visual idea of what it looks like to drive along the streets while viewing the terrain .  You can see traffic patterns, traffic light configurations, typical highway signs, and housing styles that are common to the area.

Thonex is located just outside of Geneva.

It has a fabulous-looking shopping center in the downtown area accessible by tram or bus.

One of the restaurants in town is called La Terrasse.

It sure has an inviting flower-filled outdoor dining area!

It looks like Thonex has a flare for modern architecture, too.

All-in-all, this looks like an interesting town to visit on the way to Chamonix!
