Paris, the City of Lights

PARIS, THE CITY OF LOVE

The city of love, one of the most famous cities in the world. The French capital is a very popular travel destination, and amongst the most visited every year.
TRAVEL
Despite its many districts, called arrondissements, Paris is fairly easy to navigate through. All the districts are distributed in a simple order, and maps are very efficient. As for public transport, other than the usual buses and trams, Paris has one of the worlds best and fastest subway. Just hop on a train and get to your destination in no time.
FOOD
Now, this is where things get interesting. French cuisine has been regarded one of the best cuisines for centuries, and the capital offers a wholesome experience of that exact, world-famous cuisine. A must is to try the traditional French baking products. Croissants, baguettes, the whole deal. A boulangerie, aka bakery we would suggest is Le Grenier a Pain, last years winner for the best boulangerie in Paris. For cheese and wine lovers, French cheeses, as well as wines, are the best in the world. We urge you to give them attention. For dinner, we recommend just wandering and choosing one of the many beautiful smaller restaurants you come upon, rather than going to a big one, and spending loads of cash. A place for ice cream lovers is certainly the Berthillion, a small shop that serves one of the oldest and best natural ice creams.
PLACES AND THINGS TO DO
Right off the bat, Paris’s most famous building, the Eiffel Tower. You can’t miss visiting the historic tower. However, we recommend visiting very early in the morning, if you intend to climb the Eiffel Tower. Another great way to view the tower is from Trocadero, the famous square, that is just elevated enough to give a perfect view of the whole tower. Paris has a long and interesting history, so check out monuments such as Arc de Triomphe amongst many others. Another thing Paris is famous for is art. Probably the most beautiful museum in the entire world is the Louvre. The museum is so huge, we recommend giving it two whole days in order to explore it fully. Other than the various historic artefacts, dating back to Ancient Greece and Egypt, the artwork inside is breathtaking. Amongst them is world’s most famous painting, Leonardo Da Vinci’s masterpiece- the Mona Lisa. Paris is also very famous for its fashion and shopping. If you are interested in shopping for high-fashion clothes, shoes and such, you came to the right place. Le Marais is the best place to shop in Paris. Shops like Chanel, Prada, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, are just some amongst many others, and you are often going to find collections unavailable for the rest of the world in these stores, made just for Paris. Making it an absolute heaven for fashionistas.
Whether you are a lover, a foodie or a fashionista, Paris is a perfect place for you! Book your trip today, and consult our guide for any uncertainties!

5 BEST TRAVEL SPOTS IN 2018

 

Picking a vacation spot can sometimes be very hard. We have provided some suggestions for you, for the best destinations to travel to in 2018. Without further ado, here are our top picks!

PERU

Peru is a very underrated vacation spot. One thing it is famous for is ancient city of Machu Picchu, one of the most preserved ancient cities in the world. Lesser known facts are that the Peruvian capital Lima is a very tourist friendly destination, and inexpensive as well. Another interesting fact about Peru is that they actually have a really good cuisine, suitable for foodies from all over the world. Lima currently has 2 of the best 10 restaurants in the world. Do not forget to visit the capital of the Incas, a city called Cusco, a unique blend of ancient and modern.

BELGRADE, SERBIA

The capital of Serbia is inexpensive, and one of the less crowded tourist destinations. The city itself has a unique feel to it, with a blend of medieval and modern, and Serbs are famous for their hospitality. Taste the Serbian cuisine, which consists of mostly roasted and grilled meat, but they are world champions at it. There are many dishes unique to this country, such as sarma and ajvar. Belgrade has a very vivid and active nightlife, with many different bars, clubs and lounges.

NEW ORLEANS, NORTH AMERICA

New Orleans has been a great tourist spot for decades. It is known as the birthplace of jazz, and its original Mardi Gras festival. This year is special, because New Orleans becomes 300 years old, making it one big birthday party! Do not forget to visit in the time of Mardi Gras, for one of the most colorful and joyful festival experiences of your life.

NAMIBIA

If the crowds aren’t really your type of travel, you might want to visit Namibia’s Skeleton Coast. One of the most exotic and rewarding trips you will probably ever make in your life. This is the place where the world’s oldest dessert meets over 1000km of unspoiled, uninhabited coastline. Truly a wonderful site. Before going, you might want to check availability in the Skeleton Coast Park, because they only allow about 800 visitors every year, making it have virtually no crowds at all.

MOROCCO

Much more accessible than Namibia, but Africa no less, Morocco is the final destination on our list. Dessert feeling, and the classic small stone houses with flat roofs are still very present in the beautiful city of Morocco. It is also only 15km away from Spain, and has many influences from different cultures. There’s something for anyone in Morocco. For foodies, the food is really good, and will satisfy all your desires. Fashionistas beware, you will absolutely adore the Yves Saint Laurent fashion museum in Marrakech. For explorers and adventures, you should try surfing in Agadir, or explore the old town of Essaouira, home of old Portuguese traders, as well as rock legend Jimmy Hendrix.

We hope our guide helped you in choosing your own perfect travel destination. Enjoy and travel safe!
