le dépaysement vs un changement de décor

For the term, change of scenery, the exercise used, "le dépaysement" with un changement de décor used as alternative. I was wondering just what the distinction or nuance in the 2 terms is. Please explain when you would use one over the other. Thanks.

Bonjour Tom,

"Dépaysement" is a "stronger" than "changement de décor", which is a bit more neutral. They are both synonyms and you can use either of them when meaning "a change of scenery".

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !

Hi Tom,

Suggest you visit the above site.

Enter each --  dépaysement, changement and study the text.

You will be able to select "synonyms" and "concordance" where you will be able to assess usage etc. etc.

I'm sure that this is the best way for you to deal with your query and at a level that will suit your needs.

Hope it helps,
