Vevey is one of the most interesting places I have ever been to. There's commerce and industry smattered amidst beauty so breathtaking that words may not do any justice at all. They say, Vevey developed into a town from a village. So in a sense, it is rather urban. The place grew as traders and merchants settled from time to time—a transient population, so to speak.The first thing I noticed was the expansive headquarters of Nestlé on the waterfront. Opposite the building, there is a large garden with a sensational logo of the Nestlé bird created purely out of flowers and leaves! There’s also Charlie Chaplin's statue in a square named after him. The famous comedian lived here for 25 years. Just opposite Chaplin's statue is a giant fork sticking out of the water! The fork stands directly across the Nestlé Alimentarium, a museum devoted to the history of food. The fork is in commemoration of its 10th anniversary.
