Paris Pocket Guide

Images Of Paris

One of the first things you notice when you walk around Paris is this: the French capital is just as you imagine it. Parisians lounge outside cafés drinking coffee, budding artists sketch whatever passes them into their sketch pads, and everywhere you look is another building which causes an immediate reaction to grab for your camera. Some of the world's best museums can be found here, the list of instantly recognisable landmarks is a lengthy one, and the nightlife is electric to say the least. But one of the French capital's best attributes is that when you want to do nothing but sit back and relax, it's hard to think of a better city in the world to people watch.

    Paris for the second time

    Don't miss the Montmartre neighborhood, for my is he most beautiful place in Paris! The best souvenirs shops and art!

    Insider Tip:If you want to go to Versailles, don't you the RER train, because with this train it takes a little more than one hour to get there. Go to the Montparnasse station and take the train there, it takes 15 minutes!

    Romantic city

    Romantic city, get the metro pass, it is worth every bit, get GPS , then you don't have to speak French to ask directions. Download the free app of metro and use it without internet connection for directions.

    Insider Tip:If someone stops suddenly to help you, do not accept, something is fishy, get a sling bag, place it in front of you, people try to brush you to open your bag, beware pick pocket. Do not rush for the train, you will get bumped by the door and fell down.

    Awful public transports

    Rarely can I find a sign for the metros; and the entrance to the metro station is generally very small and quite easily be missed. The air is also awful; to be honest, not better than Beijing, especially alongside the river in the evening.

    Paris, an enchanting city!

    Excellent city with tons for sights for seeing. Obviously is very nice to visit on couple. The only downside is being a little expensive.

    Insider Tip:You'll need at least 4 or 5 days to see everything and get the most of it. Mandatory include the eiffel tower, versalles, arc of thriumphe, tullerie gardens and Louvre museum! Be careful, a lot of people hustling money on the streets, and pickpocketers!

    A must-see city, so much history and culture. It is expensive though, so make sure you budget for all the sites you want to see.

    Insider Tip:Go in spring for sure. Way prettier. Also, if travelling to Versailles, do so after 2pm because the line is MUCH shorter.
