Bordeaux’s international airport is a hotspot for excited holiday makers and curious businessmen and women. New destinations are continuously added to the list of cities that connect Bordeaux abroad. Furthermore, an efficient navet links the airport with the train station in 30 minutes and, once inside the city’s walls, it is possible to rent hop-on-and-off bikes in the city centre and catch the ferry across the Garonne river- whilst taking in the 18th century waterfront. Always looking towards the future, Bordeaux is soon to be connected to Paris in a short two hour journey. This ultra fast service should be in place in 2017.
