You won't regret it.

Okay, so France's economy isn't doing too well and they're not too happy with their President. BUT France is still an awesome place to live.

And here's why.

10. Their welfare system generally always works in your favour, too. If you're not earning a lot, you can get up to €240 a month to help with rent.

If you live in a FJT, accommodation for students and young workers, you might even find that your rent is entirely subsidised by the state.

11. And there's plenty to do with all your free time. You could visit other cities - intercity transport is pretty cheap if you take a slower train.

12. This makes visiting some of the glorious spots around the country, like the walled city of Saint-Malo in northwestern France, an easy option.

Plan your visit around the high tide, though, as otherwise you're not going to get across the bridge.

15. It's definitely worth checking out a few of the country's outstanding markets.

France boasts some of the largest markets in the world. Just look at the Marché des Lices in Rennes. It's the second biggest in France and is surrounded by greenery and architectural history. The last time I was there, they were even selling cow tongue. You can get anything at this place.

17. Plus: museums! You already know about the Louvre.

France is blessed with a wonderful abundance of museums. You'll find several in each major city (and even in small villages). Lyon, for example, has 18 city museums.

The race is preceded by festivities in the city, where the drivers parade around in their cars and mingle with locals in the bars at night.

Celebrity fans include Grey's Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey, who has a habit of turning up for the race, and actually took part in 2009.

28. In fact, life in France is pretty relaxed, generally.

You can attribute this to a combination of the relatively short work day, a generous welfare system, and all that amazing food and culture.
