We had yet to visit La Muséee Asiatique de Nice, so since the weather was a little ‘iffy’ today, this seemed like the perfect time for museum stuff.
The museum is located in Nice’s Industrial Park, across from the Airport called, Porte de L’Arenas. The Industrial Park contains a complex of buildings which houses over 200 business enterprises. Remember the movie, Logan’s Run? The whole area gives off that kind of surrealistically futuristic vibe, not unlike the Industrial Park in Monaco’s city of Fontvieiile.
Designed as a meeting place between man and nature, The Phoenix Park is located at the entrance of Nice at the airport. It extends over 7 hectares. There are over 2500 species of plants preserved in a Meditterranean settimg and consisting of twenty theme gardens with sound.
