Commonly known as the city of love, the city of light, the land of opportunity, the fashion capital and a food and wine lover’s paradise, Paris is indeed always Paris.

Need I say more?  Life à la Parisienne.

Paris casts its spell on you from the moment you find yourself in the city. You instantly take in the strong smell of coffee and the freshly made baguettes and pain au chocolats and perhaps even a whiff of a someone’s cigarette.


You’ll see people sitting in iconic café spots - some are on their fourth cup of coffee of the day, while others are already devouring brunch with a side of wine. Parisians often meet up here to discuss business, socialise or to quite simply enjoying the finer things in life à la Parisienne.



Très Chic, Très Belle, Très à La Mode

This city is highly regarded as one of the biggest fashion capitals of the world - and with good reason. It is the home of some of the most popular fashion houses including Dior, Chanel, Givenchy and Louis Vuitton.

Although these classic designers have certainly made their mark on the world, there are other budget-friendly options that will still make you look très chic. Put simply, Parisians know how to dress. Whether they’re sporting brands like Chanel, high street or even bits and bobs from the iconic vintage shops that line the streets of Montmartre, they quite simply get it right every single time.

So if you’re planning on doing a spot of shopping, you’ll most certainly be spoiled for choice.


A City that Basks in Beauty, Culture and Historical Landmarks 

Of course, you simply can’t visit Paris without getting a dose of its world-famous landmarks, museums and galleries. You can say that this city offers something for everybody - the art lovers, the historians, the architecture enthusiasts… you name it. 



For starters, Paris’ art galleries are a feast for the eyes. Whilst you have to visit places like the Louvre at least once in your life, there are other museums that also warrant a visit such as Musée d’Orsay and the Centre Pompidou.


Along with the art galleries, Paris’ Palais Garnier is an architectural masterpiece in its own right. Whether you’re booking a tour or a show, this should be high up on your Parisian bucket list.


You can also take a trip outside the hustle and bustle of the city to visit the famed Hall of Mirrors and gardens at Versailles. Up for some cabaret and musical entertainment? Then there’s only one place to go - Moulin Rouge of course!


If you don’t feel like doing a lot of walking after eating too many croissants, you can always cruise along the Seine and still take in the beauty of Paris’ historical landmarks including the famous Ponts des Arts bridge, Île De La Cité and Île Saint-Louis, Notre Dame Cathedral and last but certainly not least, the Tour Eiffel.



Magic Awaits

Paris also invites your inner child to dream. Needless to say, no trip to Paris is complete without a visit to Disneyland.

It’s the perfect place for the thrill-seekers who are looking for that adrenaline rush on a rollercoaster, the foodies who want to indulge in different cuisines from around the globe, the collectors who are after more memorabilia to add to their collection, and the dreamers who just want to get lost in the wonderful world of storytelling. Who says it’s only for children?


Needless to say, the genius that is Walt Disney created something beyond our wildest imagination. When you visit Disneyland Paris, that inner child within each and every one of us forgets about the hectic schedules and long hours at work, and instead runs free in every nook and cranny of this beautiful theme park. It is truly a place where all our dreams come true.
