Paris, the City of Light (la Ville Lumière) and Capital of Fashion, it is home to the world's finest and most luxurious fashion designers and cosmetics, such as Chanel No.5, Christian Dior, Yves Saint-Laurent, Guerlain, Lancôme, L'Oréal, Clarins, etc. A large part of the city, including the River Seine, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. "Paris - "the city of Love" is just a lie that the French aims to attract more tourists into this city", during a dinning with my French roommate, who is from Southern of France. Whether it is true or not, I would recommend you to travel to Paris with friends or other partners. There are 2 reason for it: 1st is not to feel lonely in this romantic city :), 2nd to avoid all those scam that set up everywhere in this beloved city :) . How to get to Paris when you are in Europe? There are plenty of cheap airlines in Europe that you can take advantage of : Jetair, RyanAir, Blue1, so on and so forth. But for me the best way to travel in Europe and to get to Paris is by train :) (Eventhough the TVG; express train system in France is kind of pricy). There is not much good hostels in Paris, so it is better that you book in advance, or try Airbnb, or couchsurfing. For me I did try couchsurfing when I am in this city, and the experience was amazing :). It will take me day to write about my travel experience in Paris. So if you have any questions or need any tips, just send me a message. I will hit you right back ;D !
