Tickets to the Paris Fashion show are difficult to obtain for those of us who are not part of the fashion industry. But you may attend the FREE fashion show held every Friday afternoon by Galeries Lafayette, where professional models unveil the Galeries Lafayette Haussmann store’s fashion collection!

6 Parvis Notre-Dame, Place Jean-Paul II, 75004 

Owning the beautiful name, “Our Lady of Paris”, Notre Dame de Paris is also known as Notre-Dame Cathedralor, a historical cathedral that is listed on many travelers' bucket list.

Being one of the finest French Gothic architecture, the cathedral is among the largest and most well-known church in the world. With its rich history and magnificent architectural achievements, Notre Dame has became more than just a site of worship. People are traveling half the globe to witness its beauty today, thousands of years after its construction.

1 Légion d'Honneur Street, 75007

Formerly a railway station in 1900, Musee D’orsay now houses a superb collection of paintings, centered on world’s largest collection of French Impressionist and post-Impressionist works.

Musee D’orsay is not only a must-see for any art lover - it also houses an elegant tearoom with a good view over the river.


Food is a need, but good food is a must!
Forget over-priced touristy restaurants and eat like a true blue Parisian!

La Butte Aux Piafs’s (31 Boulevard Auguste Blanqui, 75013) hot item is the squid ink burger, and is a favourite among local students schooling in the area.

Did you know in France, wine is cheaper than water?

The 3 necessities of Parisians are: Air, Food, and Waterine.
Well, just kidding! But wine is truly an important part of the French culture.

This is why you must visit this wine bar!

Frenchie’s Wine Bar (5-6, Rue Du Nil 75002) serves house-cured charcuterie like pulled pork BBQ sandwich, lamb ragu pappardelle, Neal’s Yard dairy cheeses and, well, wine (duh).

It is extremely popular among both locals and tourists, so be sure to be there early!

Paris is heaven on earth for anyone with a sweet tooth and the list of must-try sweets in Paris is endless.
And here’s one of them!

Puits D’amour.

Puits D’amour translates to ‘wells of love’ and is a no frills kind of dessert - a chubby puff filled with rich vanilla bean cream and a pour of caramel over the top! Yums.



Last but not least, a selfie with the Eiffel Tower that draws envy from all your friends!
