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.

    A Big Fat "No" to Paris

    I got pick pocketed and lost my phone for good, and worst of all, it was in a restaurant of all places. There are a ton of shady characters everywhere, and the city is far too large to navigate economically or easily. All the food costs are astronomically high despite their mediocrity. Street peddlers jingle their excessive amount of eiffel tower sculptures and beggars are omnipresent.

    Insider Tip:watch your pockets, constantly.

    Be safe and be alert from pick pocketers

    Though I didn't stay for a long time, it was a good city for its renowned museums and high street brands. Plan minimum 2 nights and 3 days to cover most of the things. Best to take hop on hop-off tickets as they are very convenient and you can feel the city vibe. Also try city metros which has super connectivity to anywhere. Be alert and careful in undergrounds from pickpoters I was just saved by that and from black people around sacre coeur who come to tie a string and demand for money..

    Insider Tip:Plan for Eiffel tower in the evening so that you can enjoy city during loght and night. Its beautiful

    Paris was waaaay bigger than I thought! I like walking whenever I can, but this was not a city that you could walk all day. It was a bit busier and more hectic than I thought, but it was still beautiful.

    Insider Tip:Go to the top of Montparnasse instead of the Eiffel Tower for a view of Paris. It was cheaper (or so I was told) than going to the top of the Eiffel Tower, a shorter wait time, AND you're view has the Eiffel Tower in it!

    Although little is being positioned outside near La Gare du Nord, was not significantly enough to risk. Curtain of the bed and reading lights, and the outlet was very convenient. Toilets and showers were also clean and has very convenient in many ways. If traveling to Paris again, I'd like to visit again.
