what is your plan for india gabriel!.. when you are going to visit
Jay (2 months ago)
I'm planning a 6 day trip in December my flight cost $479 and my hotel in Le Marais district cost $580..so a little over $1000 cad for return flight in a hotel in a prime location.
dart arkana (2 months ago)
I've been told by very close friends that scam artists and pick pockets are everywhere. I'm reluctant to travel there, stay in a hostel, or pull out my wallet in paranoia of whose standing near. I'd rather create a more authentic experience my visiting small villages or townships than risking a suspicious dear eyed adventure in large cities like paris

Yes, its true the breakfasts or meal dinner restaurants are expensive, but you do get it very nice and neat presented not seen before. Further on the atmosphere is it worth sitting in/outside a Cafee. Location. And if you go to other railway stations across Europe they have deer prices as well, and do not offer far as equal standard.
Dave Austin (4 months ago)
if you are going to a wonderful,m beautiful city like Paris, do not nickel and dime your way through cheap restaurants. Save some, borrow some, or steal some money so you can have some fun and not be thinking about your expenses every second
Yakiro Jack (4 months ago)
I think prices are the same as US, my wife and we spent more money in New York City. I remember to spent almost $90 in the Olive Garden in time square just for soup and salad and two cups of wine.

You did not have trouble with crime or pick pockets? I have heard that there is a lot of crime in Paris lately. Did you see any problems?
Bernard Tapie (3 months ago)
Joan Lynch It depends of the areas . In touristic and expensive places there are a lot of pickpockets and scammers . In poor places there are a lot of "thugs" , refugees and junkies. The common rules are : don't look like a tourist, don't look expensive and ignore weird people coming to you. Nobody is nice for free . Paris is like a magnificiant museum mixed with a third world population . As a Parisian myself i ´m always surprised how crazy beautiful is this city , i mean really . It's like disneyland with a bit of jungle inside.

Bernard Tapie (3 months ago)
Dirk Balter Third world immigration made people less open and tolerant , everytime you enjoy something, weirdos comes and try to mess with you. People are not so bad , they are more careful , suspicious and distant because of all the thugs, junkies, refugees, etc who are everywhere.
Mr11ESSE111 (5 months ago)
stupidest things are buying food in restaurants or sendwiches like this for 8 euro!! go to big shopping market and you can buy kilo cheese or bacon for same price
MidoTV Adventure (6 months ago)
it is too expensive ..a water is at least 2 euros or 1 euro if you're lucky. The SMALL bottle. food and all that is expensive too, one needs a lot of money in credit to be able to enjoy good time there, AND don't forget that you pay A LOT for a LESS experiences in ''Hotels'' ..Check out my paris/europe vlogs :) but its a LOVELY city tho ..
If you want to have a bottle that parisian buy usually ( not the tourists) you have to enter into real supermarket : Monoprix, Franprix, Carrefour Market... those are some brand of supermarket really known in France. It is 0,20€ for a bottle of water. (not the ones in the fridge). At the back of the shop. Not the ones at the front in the fridge, which are more expensive.

Gabriel_ (8 months ago)
Paris is an expensive city because Paris is a famous city around the world. So, certainty, all restaurants in Paris, or around the train station, Will be very expensive :/ I have a question. Some friends already say to me that Paris is a dirty city. They said that The only área that is clean in Paris is the area of the Eiffel Tower. That's true?
Gabriel Traveler (8 months ago)
No it isn't that bad, a lot of the neighborhoods are pretty clean, some are dirty.
Panerai Ferrari (8 months ago)

Mike Hydropneumatic (8 months ago)
For dinner I can recommend Quartier Latin and the south bank of the Seine. Typical French simple but very good food. Boeuff Bourguinon + Union Soup + Dame Blanche = €17 or Very good quality fries + Steak with mustard + salad = €14 Was actually amazed on how affordable dinner was in Paris, been to places in France that were more expensive than Paris. Also an option as in many cities are the English and Irish pubs. The Bombardier and The Frog and Rosbief , nice atmosphere and very international so good to have a chat if your French isn't so good. Different kinds of food served.

Priyanka Sharma (1 year ago)
which area these restaurants are?
213cavalli (1 year ago)
you must be high on something thinking us dollar is higher than euro haha
Gabriel Traveler (1 year ago)
They were closer a year ago when I made this video, one euro equaled about $1.05 USD, so that's almost the same.
213cavalli (1 year ago)
u said 1 euro is basically is 1 us dollar thanks for correcting my first statement maybe not higher but also not equal euro always was and will be higher even if it's by bits
Gabriel Traveler (1 year ago)
At what point in the video did I say that? The dollar has never been higher than the euro, so I don't think I would have said that. You might have misunderstood something.
Victoria Louise (1 year ago)
When I was in Paris it was like 7-8 Euro for one pint of beer which is totally crazy I guess I was in the tourist area though

Hello Gabriel Traveler i have been watching your videos since the beginning of the summer... Full respect for all the things & trips that you have accomplished during all those years!!!!! Just continue what you do so well... by the way that cheese sandwich you eat in Paris is not the real french sandwich!!!!! a real one would be made in a traditional Baguette with no sesame seeds on it....... you got that in a train station in Paris.....let me guess at Gare du Nord or Gare de Lyon !!!!! Hahahahahahaaaaa. If you come back to paris let me know when......i will be so gratefull to show cool places to go and visit & of course you can stay and sleep at my place... Bon voyage.....Traveling is tough and dangerous so be safe... PETER McA Anwser if you can!!!!
Gabriel Traveler (1 year ago)
Cool, yeah I got the sandwich at the Gare du Nord train station, which was right near my hostel. Thanks for watching!

Johanna Ewards (1 year ago)
Why do you not book hostels/rooms with kitchen? So you can buy food in the supermarket (ex breakfast and lunch) and store/cook it? And then maybe buy dinner at a restaurant if you want?! Wouldn't you save a lot of money if you did that? Or is it, in general, cheaper to book hostels without kitchen and then buy all the food at restaurants/super markets/fast food? Or do you buy food just because you want to experience that country/city's food? Just curious about your reasoning!!
Bernard Tapie (3 months ago)
Johanna Ewards Hostels are REALLY expensive in paris , if you want a kitchen you need to rent an air'b'n'b and it's fucking expensive too.
daveheel (1 year ago)
just returned from paris. food can be inexpensive or expensive. just depends on what you want to spend. not everyone who works in paris can afford fine dining. i found bakeries, delis, greek, american, fast food, convenience store and grocery store options.
daveheel (1 year ago)
i've never stayed at a hostel. i see reviews of hotels and hostels online and there seem to be more complaints at hotels than hostels which seems a bit odd to me because you usually have to share a room with many people and a bathroom and sleep in bunk beds.

Was that CDG airport? About how long did it take to get there?
Gabriel Traveler (1 year ago)
CDG, yes. It took around 30 minutes or so, it was a nice and easy train trip out there.
Delph Zouzou (1 year ago)
The price for the laundry was nice. You will not find cheaper in town, where the prices will be 20% to 50% higher.
Josh G (1 year ago)
stayed at st christopher's for about half my stay in paris. great hostel. it was mid-january, so similar pricing. nice stay, clean, hot showers, good breakfast. euro was worth about a$1.50 back in 2010 though. fairly pricey city for off-season travel.
daveheel (1 year ago)
thankfully, the euro took a big tumble since then for my trip to paris last week.
MultiAnne36 (1 year ago)
Gabriel Traveler, I have been watching you for a long time. I just got plane tickets for Paris in July 2017. I come on youtube and there you are in Paris! Thank you so much for the travel tips, very helpful.
Gabriel Traveler (1 year ago)
That's awesome, yeah I was in Paris just a few weeks ago. Have a great trip!
gscaria (1 year ago)
I would say those prices are reasonable if you're coming from a major US city like New York, LA, Chicago or Washington DC, but if you're coming from the southern states or the midwest, it can be a bit pricey.
StreetFrench.org (1 year ago)
really nice video! Hope you had a good time in Paris :)
peepthezoobazz (1 year ago)
You went to St. Christophers! I mentioned it in your "where am i" video. :)

Gabriel Traveler (1 year ago)
Yes, two of my favorite places, will probably go to both on this trip.
American Wayfarer (1 year ago)
St.Christopher's was really loud.We stayed there one night in a private room.We had a room in a budget hotel about a block away for a lot less.We did sneak back in to St.Christopher's later in the week to use their laundry. If you open and look out the skylight in their laundry room there is a a really nice view
Cole Martin (1 year ago)
Are you planning on visiting Pondicherry when you are in India? Very cool place! Was there in 2015

I've been there before, and also Auroville nearby, not sure if I will visit again on this trip but it's possible.
ashish gangal (1 year ago)
will you be in Delhi this time?
ashish gangal (1 year ago)
If you do come to delhi, please arrange a fan meetup! It will be awesome! And I will be more than happy to show you around Dwlhi from the locals point of view! And keep up the amazing work!
Gabriel Traveler (1 year ago)
It's possible but I'm not sure yet.

Hi Gabriel, love your vids! When you go to India can you do another 'how expensive is...' and maybe an updated 'living in India for $15/20 a day'? Thanks and happy travels!!!

Henry Martinez (1 year ago)
That's cool! Take care Gabriel, and happy travels!
Gabriel Traveler (1 year ago)
I don't think I will be in India that long, maybe until late March or April, but I'm not sure yet. Basically by the end of April or so the only places you really want to be are up in the Himalayas, because it's too hot everywhere else.

We each brought $400 spending money for the trip so $1000/person for 6 days all in. That was flight, hotel and all food, wine and attractions. We took the train everywhere. The transit system in Paris is outstanding!

I was in Paris in September. I found plenty of restaurants with reasonable prices and plenty of bakeries with great sandwiches. The one thing that really surprised me was how inexpensive the Metro was compared to the Underground in London. Almost half the price.
Richard White (2 months ago)
The London Underground now has the facility to use a contactless card and once used 3 times ( in one 24 hr period)which equals approximately £6 it’s capped at that and won’t charge you any extra for all your travel that day , just keep using same card 👍

Yeah I've definitely thought about it, it's a possibility but I would have to look into it more.

Gabriel Traveler (1 year ago)
Yes, here's my video about that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_CzZD59Y56o You shouldn't have to pay thousands to get to SEA, especially booking in advance. Keep searching, try skyscanner's option in which you can pick the whole month and see the cheapest options.
