We’re going to Paris for the 4th time in February 2019 to bring our 10 year old, per his request. I COMPLETELY agree with another comment about Musée d’Orsay and a Seine Cruise being highlights. We took a lunch cruise for about €50 (might be more now, this was a few years ago) with Bateaux Parisienne that was 5 courses and included amazing wine (is there another kind in France?) We took the Métro almost everywhere and it was a breeze. We actually found that if we went to the Louvre a bit later (like 11ish) it was much less crowded, but depending on the day and time of year they might be no ´good’ time. I highly recommend using the Mall entrance beneath the Louvre as there’s almost never a queue, and if there is it will be MUCH shorter than than the main entrance. Don’t waste money on the VIP entrance pass because there are almost always quick and easy ways to jump the queue (legally, of course). Some are as simple as purchasing your ticket in advance. I also highly recommend printing out a map of the Louvre with the exhibits so you can plan your highlights in advance, as there’s no way to see everything. It is 8 miles of art of course. We found the timing of entry to Versailles to be much like the Louvre. Arrive later in the morning and you’ll avoid the long queues. Even if the museums/palaces themselves are crowded you at least won’t have to wait to get inside. I also highly recommend visiting the Hameau de la Reine ( Queens Hamlet) and surrounding gardens while at Versailles. They do have trolleys that will take you from the main palace to the Hameau, Trianon, and Petit Trianon that are either free or very inexpensive. One mistake we made on two trips was to buy a Eurail pass. Unless you’ll be travelling a LOT between minor cities it will not be worth it. You will always have to purchase a ticket from or into any major city, with no discount. We splurged for First Class Eurail passes and they would only see us First Class tickets to Amsterdam, which was an extra €1200 for 3 people. I’m not sure if that’s an actual rule, or it just being our first time we were taken advantage of, but you’ll definitely have to buy the additional tickets, even if they sellyoua different class than your Eurail Pass. In terms of Paris being dirty...I lived in New Orleans for 2 years and it definitely cleaner than the French Quarter on any given day. That being said, it’s a big city, but I didn’t find it to be worse than NYC or Brussels. It’s very true about the pickpockets and scams, especially around Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower. The first time we went they used children with postcards written in English to distract while an adult attempted to rob you, and the clipboard scam was much more prevalent the last time we went. We are very excited to bring our son and he’ll be vlogging each destination as extra credit for school (we’re going to several cities in Europe) ad he’ll be missing 3 weeks, but I think gaining something he can’t get out of a classroom.

Bonjour! Merci for the tips. I'm visiting your lovely city for New Years and probably need all the tips I can get haha. I wish I had a less busy time I could visit to really take it in without the throngs of other tourists, but I'm sure it will still be amazing.

One big tip, to be polite in french is to show respect and not to be overly 'fakely' friendly. The customer is not King but more likely to be treated as a guest.

You lost me at 'hipster,' a word bastardized by the yuppies, who want more than anything to understand the mind of a 'hipster,' be in the 'hip' places, but fail to understand that their presence - the presence of the yuppies, the plebeian beige- in said places indicates the doom of anything 'hip,' whatever that word even means. ***sigh
Nathan Ness (6 months ago)
That sounded mean, sorry. These are my own issues. Your handle -Parisasian- is very clever.
Tim Cheng (6 months ago)
Just went to Paris, stayed for 1 week. Its got the history and great sights (and you gotta see the Mona Lisa right?), but it was shockingly dirty. Old, dried poop on the sidewalks. Graffiti is everywhere. Homeless people. Traffic is horrible, by car it takes 30-40 mins to go 5 miles. During rush hour, scooters are jumping the curb and mixing with pedestrians to get around the standstill. If you take Eurostar from London to Gare du Nord, look out the windows when you arrive... I was thinking, is this Compton or is this the City of Love? That all said, there are so many sights to see, that you must go. Just preparing you for what they DONT tell you! I would recommend the Seine river cruise and the Musee d'Orsay, 2 highpoints for us. One last thing, the Louvre.. get there at 9-10am, no later, otherwise theres about 10 million people in it, lol.

+greentealover i went in January. It isn't that bad. Just focus on the good. Almost every city has its down side if you look closely. Take the negative stuff with a grain of salt. You will. Enjoy your trip. There is so much to enjoy, you don't have time to focus on the small nuances.

Imani Safi (7 months ago)
Pardon... You are a Madam not mademoiselle... I just noticed your wedding pics in background😄 So extra question... What are great places to visit outside of metro Paris for families?... I love learning about other cultures so I like going to countrysides and not always the tourist areas but still want to be safe. Trying to get my hubby and teen son on a fabulous educational vacation.
Imani Safi (7 months ago)
Merci beaucoup Mlle... Very nice suggestions and insight. Do you have tips on relocating and finding work and rentals? What areas are still safe but not as expensive?

Nice video ! I went there in 2016 December . But Paris metro is very complicated have many lines with different colour I suggest tourist must get metro map and must understand the flow. Else it will be difficult and have to keep asking other .
The Parisasian Girl (1 year ago)
Thank you! I actually think that the Parisian metro is well-organized and covers pretty well the whole city... But for that, of course there are many lines... Although once you get the gist. But I must admit sometimes when there are problems on the line due to incidents or strikes it can be very annoying!
So many great tips. Can't wait to arrive.

Hi! We are going to Paris in a few months with Eftours through my school, and I was wondering if the touristy places are less busy on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Also would you happen to know if Sainte-Chapelle is a good place to visit if we have free time after the Louvre and Notre Dome, I've heard it's beautiful but is it realistic in an aspect of time management. Also, how is the weather in late March?
The Parisasian Girl (1 year ago)
Hi! I would say the less busy days are Tuesdays and Thursdays. But not Wednesdays as the kids are off-school that day! Concerning the Sainte Chapelle, it is geographically not far at all from Notre Dame or the Louvre (by metro), but although you can visit Notre Dame quite "quickly", I don't know for sure how long the queue can take... As far as the Louvre is concerned, it really is a huge museum, so I guess it depends if you just want to spend an hour and get a glimpse of the Mona Lisa or to stay half a day and really immerse yourself in all the areas... Late March, the weather can be tricky, sometimes it can be rainy, sometimes sunny, and we have what we French people call "les giboulées de mars" (which translates as "blasts of March") which is a mix of all season in a day : rain - sun - hail - wind... all in one day! So I guess I hope you get lucky and have a nice weather when you'll be coming but we can't predict for sure. If you are lucky, you could have nice weather around 10-15°C... or else you could have rain!

Eurodollar tv (1 year ago)
hello Parisasian girl i heard that over there at Paris it is cheaper to order whatever they have on the menu for that day instate ordering whatever you want to eat from the menu like in the USA . is that true? thanks.
The Parisasian Girl (1 year ago)
It depends on which kind of restaurants you go to and what kind of food you order. For instance if you are in a casual typical brasserie, the "dish of the day" might be cheaper than ordering something "à la carte", but not as cheap as if you order something like a "Croque Monsieur" (French cheese and ham toast with salad or fries on the side) or sometimes a salad. But if you go in a proper restaurant (not a brasserie-style), or a fancier restaurant, you usually have a "menu" which is a formula with starter + main + dessert or starter + main or main + dessert which is cheaper than if you order everything "à la carte". In some restaurants, everything is included within this formula as well. But usually, the "menu du jour" (or "menu of the day") is for lunch only, and it is less expensive than at dinner. In fancier restaurants, or Michelin - starred restaurants, the lunch formula of the day (sometimes also called "Menu du marché" which means that the menu is based the fresh local seasonal produce from the market) can be 50% cheaper than the price at dinner. Hope it helps and sorry for the delayed answer to your question!

You're welcome! I'm always glad I can give some useful advice to people coming to visit Paris. I'm not as fast for making new videos on Paris as they do take quite some time for gathering enough footage but I'll definitely continue ! Hope you will have a nice trip in Paris ;-)
grand unified (1 year ago)
I've been there numerous times, I've found people quite polite & dog waist is rare , at least compared to where i come from.
The Parisasian Girl (1 year ago)
I guess it also depends on the area you go to! Of course certain arrondissements and neighborhoods are more / less clean than others. And if you've only encountered polite people in Paris, that's great!

Bonjour, I love this video. I have been to Paris twice and loved it. On my second visit, someone tried pickpocket me. That was not a cool experience.
The Parisasian Girl (1 year ago)
Bonjour! Yeah.. pickpockets unfortunately in Paris are a real problem... Paris is a wonderful city but it is not flawless... I'm glad you loved it anyway! Just have to always keep an eye on your stuff and be cautious in public spaces and transportation.
Ivan Boldyrev (1 year ago)

putri permatasari (1 year ago)
your tips really help me since i will be traveling to Paris in November. Can you share a bit about the weather ? Thanks!
The Parisasian Girl (1 year ago)
Hi ! Glad I can help ;-) It is quite difficult to guess how the weather is going to be in November as it is a transitional month towards winter... it might be quite cold or rainy already, or the weather could not be as harsh if autumn lingers on... it really depends if winter is coming soon or later this year. Either way it will probably be in the 10°C something (or less on colder or rainy days) but I don't think it can usually reach 20°C at this time of the year (unless you are lucky and experience an exceptional sunny time in November). Anyway, don't forget to check the weather before packing up! ;-)
Anna Levina-Zubarev (1 year ago)

The Parisasian Girl Merci!!!
The Parisasian Girl (1 year ago)
Happy anniversary! Paris is indeed a very romantic city (if you go to the right places :-)) If you want a view on the Eiffel Tower, of course some hotels can offer a beautiful view, usually the more luxurious one, and it's usually mentioned on their website when you choose the room. Otherwise, you can also search the Airbnb for an apartment with a view of the Eiffel Tower, it is often even displayed on the title / name of the ad as it is a great feature for any traveller... good luck and I hope you have a wonderful trip!

Tip : don't look for someone who speaks english. 😂😂
The Parisasian Girl (1 year ago)
Well it really depends on who you talk to! Mostly people who are younger would have a better English than the older generation, excluding of course the people who work at restaurants and touristic places who are expected to speak English because of their job. French are not the best at English if considering Europe in general, but we do speak far better English than in Asian countries in general (except for places like Hong Kong, etc.).
oneday (1 year ago)

oneday (1 year ago)
Hi again, can you tell me about Hôtel La Comtesse by Elegancia , this is actually where we are intending to stay when we visit Paris, is it at least near to major attractions like Eiffel tower which is the number one in my bucket list :) any suggestions as to which hotel is nice, but reasonable competitive rates, just when you have time to reply to me :) this is the farthest travel me and my hubby will be doing so we are kinda excited but more so scared of making a mistake choosing which hotel to stay or would you suggest to just go with the travel agency? not sure if its going to cost more for us. :)
The Parisasian Girl (1 year ago)

love your tips :) appreciated much... can you let me know if month of March is a good time to visit Paris? im more concerned about the weather for that month?
The Parisasian Girl (1 year ago)
Thanks :-) Well.. weather can be quite unpredictable in France, especially in Paris.. Some years spring is quite sunny, sometimes it can be quite rainy... Very hard to tell in advance, you have to check the weather forecast the week before coming. Surely summer is a good season (although it can be rainy some days even in June, July or August...), and in general Paris is so much more enjoyable when the sun is out!
MiracleTime (1 year ago)
Hi Jane thank you very much for sharing your tips! we are planning to visit and was wondering if credit cards are regularly accepted? If yes, is Visa, or Mastercard more common?
The Parisasian Girl (1 year ago)
Hi! You're welcome, I'm glad if it helps :) Yes credit cards are commonly accepted in Paris, either Visa or Mastercard. Amex are not always accepted, though. In bakery shops and fresh produce markets you might need cash, also!
James Stewart (1 year ago)
Great video! Helpful stuff on pickpockets! Question: I cannot have caffeine but love coffee. Can I order decaf in Paris? (Je parle un peu de francais!)

Hi James, thanks for watching :-) sure you can order decaf in Paris, no problem, it's called a "déca" !

which are the webpages that you recommend to eat? (the hisoter guide and the mainstream one hahaha please)
Adrian Hinojos (1 year ago)
The Parisasian Girl merci beaucoup!
The Parisasian Girl (1 year ago)
Oh, and for a more mainstream restaurants guide, there is https://www.lafourchette.com/ (LeFooding is the Hipster guide, in case you didn't guess...)
The Parisasian Girl (1 year ago)
Hi Adrian! I would definitely recommend the website LeFooding : http://www.lefooding.com/en The most 'hipster' neighbordhood in Paris is le Marais, but for cheap drinks, I wouldn't guarantee it... I actually don't exactly know about the cheaper drinks as I'm more a foodie type of girl ;-) I prefer restaurants over bars! But I would say that Parisians like to hang out in the 11th arrondissement a lot too, around Bastille to have drinks! But of course there are also many other areas (Grands Boulevards / Bonne Nouvelle...) but I wouldn't be able to recommend any specific place... You can also check out this website for more ideas: https://www.doitinparis.com/en/sortir-paris
Adrian Hinojos (1 year ago)
and also the hipster neighborhood to get cheap good drinks

Bonjour! ( Sorry I'm going to Paris on July 4th and trying to get in the habit of using french when I can) So I was wondering if you've ever traveled out of country and can help on how to fight jet lag/time changes (Im coming from Seattle on a direct flight) Also in Paris are there any 'American' places to eat in case we get tired (not in a rude way) of french food? Merci!!

Hi Karyn! Sure, I've been to the States before :) For jetlag, I would recommend when you are flying to sleep as you can (depending of course on what is your departure and arrival time) if you are going to land in the beginning or middle of the day. In that case, when you land in Paris, try to push through the end of the day without taking a nap, so that when your body finally gets a full night of sleep, it resets itself to the right time in France! But of course, if you arrive at the end of the day in Paris, you wouldn't need to sleep as much on the plane so that you can still sleep through the night when you land in France... Of course there are so many places you can eat American style food! In "Le Marais" (one of the most trendy area in Paris to hang out), there is the "Breakfast in America" : http://breakfast-in-america.com/?lang=en which looks like a little American dinner, there is the "Paris New York Burger" : http://www.pny-hamburgers.fr/locations-2/ and the Big Fernand : http://bigfernand.com/adresses/#france&paris These are for the best gourmet burgers in Paris. Every ingredient tailored to perfection, home made, etc... But if you just want to grab a quick average burger, there are also many Mac Donald's around and a European burger fast food franchise, "Quick". Hope you have a wonderful trip in Paris!

You're welcome :)

For museums, yes, you will need entry tickets! For churches like Notre-Dame, no, the entry is free. If you want to avoid queues, try to book your tickets online in advance! :-) Have a nice trip in Paris!

Great video! 💕 Love your tips. I am going to in November. What is the best way to pay, cash or card?
The Parisasian Girl (1 year ago)
Hi Stephanie :) Welcome to my channel! in Paris, most of the stores do accept cards. But not always the Amex (usually they always take Visa or Mastercard). The bigger the store / restaurant / shop is, the more chances that they take cards! For little shops like bakery shops, little counters, etc. either they don't take the card, or there is a minimum amount (even in restaurants they sometimes take it with a minimum amount around 10 to 15€). Hope you'll enjoy your stay in Paris :)
