[:en]Travel Switzerland and Italy 10days 12nights (part 1)

Swiss is a very expensive country especially transportation.  after we checked thousand place, we decide the easy way to go . We brought Swiss pass from Dynasty Travel( Singapore ) and booked the train ticket at the same time. Some ticket reservation fee require.

we book all the hotel from Booking.com and Agoda.com, as we compare I think booking have more choose but due to Agoda have point collection reward system so we used both.

1.05am arrived Singapore Airport and we will arrive at 8.00am at the morning.
10.37 -11.52 took Train from Airport to Zurich HB station and must visit information centre, the customer services will print out the detail of train transit  for you.
10.37 – 11.52 took the train from Zurich HB to Chur

Finally we reached St Moritz, can you imagine a super empty place after 7pm.

we saw a lot of branded shop at this empty town, but all closed at 6pm, even our hotel reception will closed after 8pm.. can u imagine.. this kind of spooky place!!!… hahaha    !!!

 

Day 2 ,09 May
Took Glacier Express from St Morits to Zematt

The Albula Railway is a single track metre gauge railway line forming part of the so-called core network of the Rhaetian Railway, in the Canton of Graubünden, Switzerland.

I Must said, you may try at least one in your life to take Gracier Express, this is the slower speed train in the world, the price is expensive, but I think you will not regret to have this as once in your life.
we took a lot of picture via IOS 7000, but I am so lazy to process all picture so I just took picture from IPhone else you can see very beautiful scenery via professional camera
can you see, wow!!!
finally we reach Zematt, an don’t forget to get the certificate once you arrive” Glacier Express Certificate’

this is a small and beautiful town in Swiss, is a petrol fee town , can you ever imagine the fresh air at here, no much thing to do, we saw a gang of young lady from Taiwan, they can took the same picture at same place with difference people, they almost spend 30 minute for one scenery ..  oh!! my god!!

This is our hotel, no lift so need to carry all the way to third floor, lucky the stair case not very high, we still can manage.. this is the main street and at the ground floor the bakery shop very nice.. so may try it.. Swiss baked …

Don’t be surprise this is one of the tourist spot ..

DUFFEST is an acronym for Duffyfield Unity Family Festival, and for the past 14 years we have truly lived up to the meaning insomuch as we have united families together from all walks of life for a day of celebration.

  Took Train from Bern to Lucern

The Kapellbrücke (Chapel Bridge) is a covered wooden footbridge spanning diagonally across the Reuss River in the city of Lucerne in central Switzerland.

To be Continue ….

[:zh]这次我们来到了世界上消费最贵的国家-瑞士。也因为瑞士很贵,所以我又到了邻近的義大利。相比之下,瑞士真是太贵了!可是在義大利败家女当道,也没法省钱,所以我们只能做个精明的消费者。当你来到瑞士,你会发现,原来书中如诗如画的风景,原来是真的。走入瑞士的我们,好像来到了仙境。在山水湖中,呼吸的清新的空气,净化了心灵。

Tip:
在瑞士一定要买Swiss Pass千万不要买Euro Pass(不包景观快车),但 Swiss pass包括火车,巴士,有些缆车,如果没包括也会了30%-50%的折扣,最后还有观光例车(黄金快车golden pass Express 和冰川快车Gacier Express)冬季只需CHF13的定座费,夏季就比效贵CHF33
注意事项:-
新加坡的SwissPass可以在Dynasty Travel 购买。Clark Quey MRT 对面。有传人负责,而且可以直接订位和打印票给你。SwissPass还能用在Swiss 到Milan的这一趟火车。
在欧洲的酒店Booking.com的价格会比效好,不过你也可以用Trivago.com来确认一下,如果你用booking订酒店,记得用creditcard的名子和带credit card。

和大家分享一下,Hotel.com/Agoda.com当你订酒店时,钱已经付了。Booking.com只是以信用卡订了房而已。

第一天
我们早上8点到了苏黎世机场,然后搭火车到苏黎世火车站(Zurich HB Station),一到达火车站,我们就前往火车客务,因为客务可以帮你打印出火车的行程表,我们买了SwissPass,今天我们要去Saint Moritz需要转火车。

10.37 – 11.52 Zurich HB –》Chur 12.58 -14.58 Chur Station –》St. Moritz

6点我们就到St moritz. 这里是冰山快车的起点。

在瑞士草地连着湖,湖色连着天。急风象急着驱走寒冷的冬,迎接春的来临!
傍晚六点,天空还是白昼,但是这个小镇,已经人去楼空了。本女王想试一下在大马路扑街,结果试了两分钟,然后还爬上橱窗拍照。漫步无人的街道,躺在无人的路上,沿着无人的湖走着。
Hotel Sonne
Address: Via Sela 11, 7500 St. Moritz, Switzerland

这里可是被例入了欧洲文化遗产的哦!

Day 2 ,09 May
每一天有一趟到二趟从St Morits去Zematt的冰山例车,需要提早订票。

我个人觉得Chur-Brig 和,Dovo-Andermatt是我最喜欢,不过一定要到Zematt。其实真心话,没必要去Saint Moriz,从Chur出发就好了。
世界上最慢的快车,传载着世界最美的风景线。“冰川快车”历史悠久,连接多处瑞士旅游胜地,是瑞士著名的旅游观光线路,从St Moritz-Zematt全程7小时,经过91条隧道、291座桥梁,游客可以在全景观车厢里欣赏瑞士阿尔卑诗山区壮丽的景色,路程千变万化,游客还可以通过耳机获取多国语言的相关信息。

如果你来瑞士,冰川快车绝对是你必加景点。也别忘了在到达目的时候到当地的information counter 领取冰川快车的证书。

环保小车-这里只有这种车

终于来到了世界最美的小镇,当你走近你会认为自己身在画中,尽入眼廉的是一种不真实的梦幻美。
在这个无气油小镇,是干净,天然的。连绵的山,覆盖着白皑皑的雪,让人有雪糕的甜蜜感,沉腻于大自然的怀抱中。
我们的酒店
Hotel Helvetia

Bahnhofstrasse 72, 3920 Zermatt, Switzerland 
很棒的地点,保有旧式风貌,很典雅,价格公道,只有一点美中不足就是没电梯,需要自己搬上二,三,四楼,这个快要了我的命啊!
楼下的面包店的派,面包都很好吃,有经过,不要错过。

坟场都是一个景点,我到当地旅游局,那美丽的小姐介绍的。

沿街走着,无一处不是风景,绝对可以拍照到忘我的境界。才不辱世界最美的小镇之一。

当地的Macdonald

第三天

今天来到了高潮马特洪峰- methahon
Methahon马特洪峰,当地人的滑雪胜地。瑞士的是老式滑雪场,不过不会滑雪的我是看不懂的。我在山上堆雪人,玩雪,山上的太阳很毒辣,风吹,天气又冷,很难发觉,不过很容易晒黑。大家都涂很多防晒霜。Swisspass上山有折扣。
收拾行囊我们直 奔Bern。瑞士的首都。这个联邦大厦的所在地。景点有钟楼、老城区及喷泉、伯尔尼大教堂、玫瑰园等…

钟楼Zytologge-Bern 的路标。

  • 来到伯尔尼市,从顺正义街走到阿尔河弯曲处过桥,就到了伯尔尼最古老的地区。在伯尔尼老城区,古迹处处可见,这里保留了完整的历史风貌。
我们到达时DUFFEST 正在举行,大街小巷挂着自己家族的旗。好不热闹。

伯尔尼大教堂

我们之后又来到了Lucern琉森,到达时天色以晚。

The Kapellbrücke (Chapel Bridge) 卡佩尔桥

琉森,一面湖光粼粼、碧波万倾,一面山色葱茏、峰峦起伏,而罗伊斯河从这座城市中间流过。将琉森分成了旧城和新城。建于1332年的卡佩尔桥连接两岸,它是世界上最古老的木制廊桥。卡佩尔桥在1993年的火灾后进行了重建,一直通往琉森最具代表的留念景观——呈八角形的水塔。

第四天

今早我们订了黄金例车Lucern to Interlaken – 为什么叫黄金例车,因为这例车路线云聚了瑞士最美的湖光山色所以因而得名。
我一直以为白如雪的天鹅在湖里游来游去只会出现在童话里。哪可能有那么洁白的天鹅(空气污染)?可是亲眼所见,在这的天鹅真的洁白如雪。
不过告诉天家一下黄金例车换了颜色,变成红白了。
这次的行程没机会上处女峰,是个遗憾,不过又何常不是为下一次能来瑞士伏笔?
今天我们需要到Brig转火车到米兰,再见了我的冰山美人。

米兰Milan我们住在Hilton Milan 然后我们就去米兰大教堂了

轻铁到Duomo站下车
在Duomo站除了有米兰大教堂外,还有Corso Vityorio Emanuele ii,买名牌的地方。米兰可是世界时上之都,在这里买到最新的款式。

Milan Cathedral-Milan Cathedral 米兰大教堂

Piazza del Duomo, Milan米兰广场

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II-世界最古老的名牌街之一。这条街可是国王的名字啊。
来到Duomo有两件事是一定要做的。那就是到Cioccolati Italiani吃雪糕,很出名最少排一小时才能吃到啊!和去Fresco & Cimmino
