The UOS Times plans a special edition of ‘In My Life’ to give some useful information to the second squad of students visiting foreign countries. It consists of four parts; Part I is analysis of questionnaires received by 149 students who traveled last year. Part II introduces a hidden place that is not very famous but really worthy of visiting, Bordeaux.

Lee Sung-hun, a manager of Join Tour, recommends this place. Part III gives you some useful tips that you have to keep in mind while traveling. In the Part IV, Kim Byoung-sub, who won the first prize at the travel essay contest last year, talks about his experiences and gives advices.

The UOS Times hopes these tips will be of help to all of you.

Last year, 196 students of the UOS have traveled throughout Europe, America, and Canada. After the trip was ended, the Office of Student Affairs questioned about their journey. 149 students answered the questions and here are some of the results of questionnaires.

A Fascinating City, Bordeaux

The 6th city in France, Bordeaux, a port city in the Atlantic coast, is the best wine distributing center in France. Historic Bordeaux, which still keeps the beautiful 18th century city form and splendid buildings with old-fashioned charm, is a blessed place.

Saint Andre Chapel

The Gothic architecture, the typical symbol of the historic Bordeaux, is preserved excellently. As you go up 231 stairs, you can see 18th and 19th buildings standing in front of your sight. Moreover some antique style structures like the play house, stock exchange site, the city hall are scattered in the city.

The center of the street is Sainte-Catherine street. The street from comedy square to Aquitaine door (about 1.5 kilometer) is occupied for foot passengers.


About 40 minutes by rail road from Bordeaux, there is a terminal, beach village called Archachon. It has elegant surroundings and it is renowned for the wide beach, yoats station, casino and pearl farms. Because of beautiful houses many tourists extend their schedule just to see them. The whole village is divided into 4 names; spring, summer, autumn, and winter.

The reason is that the first people came there and fixed themselves in winter along the bulwark lining near beach. There are lots of renowned restaurants and sea side villa areas, making beautiful sites with seashore.


Brewery, Chateau, producing the world famous trademark, is located in the middle of the vineyard. Chateau is a place where people raise grapes and pack the products, brew wine.

For the people who like wine, there are visit tours and some sampling drinks prepared. When you go to the Bordeaux tour information bureau, you can get some pamphlets and there are even some programs for tourists to look around and experience the whole brewery.

Museum Chartron was actually an office work place which turned into museum. There are lots of historic material data about wine trades. In wine museum, manufacturing on each era is described by exhibition and reflection. In the end of inspection, you can have some drink from ancient Rome and 18th century.
