If you’re making a trip to France, make sure it’s a trip to Nice. As the capital of the Alpes-Maritimes along the French Riviera, there sits the city of Nice curved around the picturesque, pebbly coast of Bay of Angels.
As a former 19th century hotspot for the European elite, with former artist residents such as Henri Matisse; Nice has a wealth of restaurants, vibrant markets, and stunning architecture, which gives the coastal city a real shabby chic feel.
19世纪尼斯因为前艺术家居民如亨利·马蒂斯（Henri Matisse）而成为了聚光点; 它拥有丰富的餐厅，充满活力的市场和令人惊叹的建筑，让沿海城市成为一个既有味道有蕴含破旧别致的感觉。
One of our chozun customers wanted to know more about the wonder of Nice, and although chozun doesn’t host providers there, our customer service team put together an in-depth must do guide for the city, so brace yourselves. They’ve even done the hard work of finding addresses so you don’t have to. Here goes:
April Fool’s day is traditionally a day for high jinks and jokes from popular culture icons to your next door neighbour. chozun loves celebrating the world and all its wonders so we’re taking a look at April Fool’s traditions from around the world to help you get some ideas for pranking on the day.
The Scots love a prank so much, they have extended it to two days, April 1 was traditionally Hunt the Gowk day, although the name is fading out. Gowk means cuckoo, and sending a friend on a fool’s errand is how they traditionally start the prank and it passes along a chain of calamitous events. The second day is known as Taily Day, which is focused on bum jokes and is said to be where ‘kick me’ originated.
In Japanese, April Fools’s Day is called 4月馬鹿 (Shigatsu Baka or, literally, April Fool) or エイプリルフール (Eipuriru Fuuru or April Fool), although not necessarily and ancient tradition in Japan – in more recent times many brands take the opportunity to come up with funny and innovative new “products” they “release” on April Fools Day – like Volvo who came up with human airbags for people who are always looking at their phones when walking.

The Chinese travel market is exploding. As a startup it’s one of the most exciting spaces to be in. Independent travel now makes up over 70% of outbound travel from China and spending by Chinese travelers at destinations is up to $215B a year.
Despite the large number of technologies in China that allow easy booking of hotels and flights – there is still a lack of solutions to help Chinese travelers navigate their chosen destinations. Finding the local services & experience that truly elevate their trips with a special personal touch can be hard – that’s where we come in.
As chozun starts to reach new Chinese customers and serve them wherever they go, we are beginning to see some trends that will likely take flight in 2017. We’re sharing a few to watch out for. (more…)
