Paris is magnetic, plastered across the vision boards of dreamy-eyed, budding travellers around the world. This glittering city of light is all about understated, yet glamorised experiences - wandering the Parisian streets, walking the avenues and bridges, listening to the hum flowing out of bistros and bars; musicians in the metro and that particular scent of old, used books at the Shakespeare and Co.
Start with a visit to the Notre Dame Cathedral for an understanding of Paris’s multilayered history. When you visit the city’s major attraction, the Eiffel tower, try reserving tickets ahead of time, to skip the long queues. Although there are many, many such things and attractions you must visit in Paris, don’t miss out on a leisurely walk under the shaded trails by the Seine, or unwind at the lush promenades of Jardin des Tuileries. Attend a poetry reading in an old bookshop and enjoy the illustrious cabaret of The Crazy Horse.
Paris is also a shopaholic’s Mecca, with a number of high-end shops and hidden flea markets. For those led by their stomachs, don’t leave Paris without getting your hands on their baguettes and macarons. And of course, many many glasses of wine.Read More
We had reserved the last day for shopping and eating around the city. We covered Luxemborg garders in the morning, followed by Centre Pompidou, Paris city centre and a visit to the Catacombs. Its better to book tickets to Catacomb in advance else you might get stuck in hour long lines.
The second day pretty much went around exploring Disneyland. We had booked our tickets online from 365tickets.com website. There is a separate train station for Disneyland and you can directly catch a train from your nearest station.
We took a bus near our BnB to the airport via Catlunya. It is astonishing that the Barca city was not asleep even at 5 am in the morning. We had booked our flight to Paris through Vueling. Contrary to our experience at Ryan Air, Vueling had amazing customer service and pleasant staff. We reached Paris Orly airport at 9 am, then headed to Gare Du Nord by taking the Orly train. The tickets to city cost 18 euros. We deposited our luggage at Gare Du Nord station lockers, and headed to Louvre Museum and Eiffel tower. We covered Pont Des Arts, Notre Dame, Champs De Elysees and Siene river cruise for the day.
Paris is another destination that is easily accessible from Swiss. It takes roughly 3 hrs by train from Basel. The Eiffel tower is a must visit by day and by night but be extra careful of your wallets as the place is a center of pick pockets. People will come to you for surveys but these are mostly tactful pick-pockets trying to distract you from your wallets. The Louvre museum is another place where one can go for a day-visit and still not see everything there. A walk through the streets of Champs-Élysées, a ride on the hop-on-hop-off bus and trying the amazing food are some of the activities that can keep you busy at Paris. If you do go to Paris, I would recommend not to miss a trip to Disney Land!

6. France- Paris 'the city of love' truly deserves that title. Although I've been to multiple similar cities in Europe what sets Paris apart is the art, culture and heritage of the city combined with the french language making it a delectable combination.
From the charming Audrey Tataou roaming around the tantalizing streets of a hill-side Parisian town in Amelie to Ethan Hawke and Julie Delphy taking a boat ride on the Seine in a series of vivid scenes in Before Sunset- France has not just caught the fancy of filmmakers around the globe but it has also always defined romance, opulence and intimacy for many including myself.
It was time for us to pack our bags and leave for Amsterdam in an early morning Euro Rail. While we were feeling excited at the thought of seeing another buzzing European city but leaving behind Paris wasn't easy. With it's grand monuments, enthralling scenes, unique urban flair, tongue tickling cuisine, unparalleled night life, envious collection of local cheese and wine, swanky shops and prized artistic treasures; France is truly like a good wine, it keeps on getting better, it grows on you as each day passes by and it can truly pass off as the most seductive travel experience of your entire lifetime.
It is my first time in Bournemouth and I'm already loving it. It is a really small town but everyone just chills on the beach, enjoying the sun. Sadly there weren't much water activities available on this beach.Read More
