"Friendliness" Le Havre Local Custom Tip by aemilys

Le Havre Local Customs: 2 reviews and 0 photos

I guess this just stands out to me because I have grown so accustomed to Parisian indifference but these people are friendly (at least in the off season). Drivers actually stop to let pedestrians cross! You can ask for information and it will be given to you! and it will be correct! The people of Le Havre are proud of their city and they seem to want you to have a good time too. When my camera card died the photo shop people were kind and sympathetic (and this was in a shopping center). The hotel staff was well informed. The guy at the bookshop gave me tons of information and don't forget the world's neatest barbershop!! Thanks Le Havre, I had an excellent weekend.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
