    Nice video. You should mention tourist can enjoy "Tax Free Shopping" by using the "Blue Tax Free Form". This can be obtained at the customs counter and instruction can be found online.

    Hit me up if you are here again ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Bob belcher says:

    Lol drive 4 hours in Switzerland and end up at the end drive 12 hours in Texas and still be in Texas

  4. Because of climat change we get really hot summers lately. 5-10 years ago we were lucky to have one week or so over 30 C in summer. Now its getting more intense every year and we are not used to it. This is why most places dont have A/C.

    Cool Video.. but you still tip in Switzerland, even if there are 8% charged already you still pay tip because it is seen as not so polite to not tip at all. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I just wanted to say that swiss trains(SBB) are not on time, they are mostly to late!

  7. Walker Rowe says:

    they don't speak German, they speak Sweitzer Deustch. German people do not understand it.

  15. your video was very informative. Thankyou so much. You have a really good way of presenting information which is well appreciated and interesting.

    9:45 wrong, this is taxing, it is also on every other food you buy.
    People are getting paid enough, they donยดt need tipping. But of course, if service was good -> give a tip or just round up

    The weather in summer can be very hot, in winter, it is always under 0ยฐC, bring the right clothes.

    Noticed two things a bit weird when i was in Interlaken.One,the amount of north american muscle cars was unreal,mustangs,camaros,and chargers were everywhere and two,the kids would whizz down the streets on mopeds with NO HELMETS and a disregard for pedestrians (look both ways),,LOL

  18. Thanks a lot for the information

    *Food Prices*: Yes, prices for food are expensive in Switzerland. But what's most expensive is eating out. For Swiss people, eating out isn't nearly as commonplace as it is in the US, it's more something we do on special occasions. So if you're on a budget, consider buying meats, cheese and bread in a supermarket, and making sandwiches for lunch. And if your accomodation includes a kitchen or a common room to prepare food, you can save a lot by preparing your own food (like store bought pasta and a sauce).
    But the tip with cafeteria-style restaurants in department stores definitely is a good one, those indeed tend to be quite a bit cheaper.

  20. Luke says:

    Money Exchange: Avoid the dedicated currency exchange booths at the train stations. They often have significant fees, you usually get much better rates if you simply walk a couple blocks to any regular bank and exchange your money there.

  21. Luke says:

    As a Swiss person, I approve of this video ๐Ÿ™‚ It's very accurate, and there's some lesser known helpful tips in there (Swiss Travel Pass, SBB mobile app, water fountains, …). Well done! ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. ConnollyCove says:

    Very informative video!!..Thanks for sharing it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. love your little traveling panda and the lightheartedness haha. I feel like I have a basic foundation of Switzerland now! Thank you!

  24. swiss here: the 8.5 % isnt service carge, its tax.

  25. Aroop Bose says:

    When does summer start and end in Switzerland? Does it begin from May? Is it pleasant in the first two weeks of May?

  26. B T says:

    Danke! now i know what to look for. u da best bruh

  27. BIN GO says:

    that's it ! I really want to know more about everthing in switzerland, thanks chris!!

  28. Great tips! I'll keep these in mind for when I decide to visit Switzerland someday. I had no idea on how warm it can get there in the summer although it doesn't surprise me too much since it was warm (at least 80 degrees Fahrenheit or 27 degrees Celsius) when I was in Slovenia. I think that was around the same time when you were over in Switzerland.

  29. I love your videos. This is a good one! It's been a long time since I was in Zurich. May I make a suggestion? In each country when you tell how much items cost there would you give the exchange rate you used? That would help in understanding the cost. Thank you so much. I really enjoy your channel.

    As a Swiss, CHF 20.โ€“ vor a pizza is very cheap for me. There is food even more expensive. And about smalltalk in Switzerland… I'm currently in Australia and everywhere I go people ask you "How are you doing?" At the beginning of my travel that was kind of weird and new for me because in Switzerland you just pay at the counter and that's it! ;D
