20 Dec 08 – Day 9 (Chenonceux & Tours)

Took breakfast in Hotel Digue, MSM around 7am and departed for Loire Valley at 8am and reached around 12+pm. We had our lunch at Hostel du Roy and then we toured Chenonceux around 2pm till around 3.10pm with a local guide. We were given free & easy time for 40min before traveling to Tours City for sightseeing. There was another winter market in Tours City but this one has stalls selling clothes, bags and flowers so we walked around Winter Market from 5pm till 6.20pm and dined at Chinos Taiwan at 6.30pm before checking into Hotel Escurial Logis De France for the night.
