Snapshot: Monaco

Snapshots are mini town/city guides for smaller places or cities I have only experienced briefly. Here’s a little snapshot of Monaco.

What’s Monaco like?

Monaco is the second smallest country in the world, but the most densely populated. It’s a beautiful place with a diverse pool of women, but it’s not cheap, especially for accommodation. I happened to go by a real estate office and the first thing I saw was a two bedroom for €16 million! As such, you may be better off basing yourself in the beautiful city of Nice only a twenty minutes away. (Mind you, I was there two days before the deadly truck attack by Salafi jihadists. I’m sure the mood has changed since then.)

What are the women like?

Monaco has a very small, but diverse pool of women. Being the playground for the ultra-rich, it is a land of trophy wives, models, and aspiring gold-diggers. Although the population is only 30,000, there are 125 nationalities living there. 47% are French (a mixed bag anyway) 16% are local Monegasque, and another 16% are Italian.

Breaking these numbers down, you may find it quite difficult to capture the flag—especially when the competition drives Ferraris and Lambos. You can definitely get laid though if you know where to go.

Where should I go at night-time?

Jimmy Z

The most famous club in Monaco is easily Jimmy Zs, which is said to house the best sound system in the world. Drinks are expensive but entrance is free.

Well-known pre-game places are Black Legend or La Rascasse. However, I cannot vouch for of these venues personally.

Any other recommendations/advice?

Make sure you check out old Monaco town. It’s a small, but beautiful little town with a palace, beautiful little streets and park areas. It’s also perched on top of a hill so the views are fantastic.

Another popular draw is it’s famous casino (James Bond has visited three times), but be warned:
it’s not cheap and smart dress is required.

For weed, the best info I could find it here.

Bottom Line

Expensive if you want to spend the night, but a beautiful place nonetheless.
