A South African Gem With Major French Flair
Want to practice your French? Or spend your leftover Euros? Head to, of all places, South America, where you’ll find French Guiana, an outpost of France some 4,000 miles southwest of the Champs-Élysées. Covered primarily by rainforest and considered one of the most biodiverse spots in the world, it’s like visiting Paris’ more humid, more outdoorsy cousin. In cities like Cayenne that hug the coastline, there’s a distinct Caribbean flavor as well.
