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!
