A glamorous squish of stars, hopefuls, movie industry types and sleep-deprived hacks, the Cannes Film Festival is the most fun you can near a beach. If everything you know about it was gleaned from Medellin's catastrophe premiere in Entourage, here's some handy travel tips to fill in the gaps. Think of it as Lonely Planet: The Movie Edition.

The Insider's Guide To Cannes | 1. La Croisette
1. La Croisette

Like every major town, Cannes is, of course, full of streets. Or rues. And boulevards. And little windy cobbled paths. But it's also dominated by its main feature La Croisette, the main promenade that stretches virtually the entire length of Cannes. And that's a long way. Best to disregard Arctic Monkeys' suggestions don't get on your dancing shoes. Instead, bring your best walking brogues because when you go to Cannes, you'll be pounding pavement from morning to midnight. One consolation, though: La Croisette borders the sea, so you get breathtaking views throughout.
