Memories Of Paris : City of Lights
As they say Paris is the city of lights, I couldn’t agree more!
Before the night approaches, went to a thai restaurant called Baan Thai to have dinner.. As the weather was really cold, chose to sit outside but its extended with coverings and clear glasses. Totally warm and comfortable.
Enjoying the view of Parisians walking past and the quaint shops.
There are quite a number of authentic Thai restaurant and this place serves really delicious food! As mentioned before, I wasn’t feeling so good so I preferred to eat Asian food. Not only is the presentation of the food appetizing, the service is really good. The boss is a 5o year old thai and was so sweet to warn me to be careful of pick pockets, cause he felt my bag looks like a target. Food was reasonably priced too!
13 Rue de la Ferronnerie, 75001 Paris, France (Louvre / Place Vendôme)
As the sun slowly sets, started walking towards Eiffel Tower..
I have two loves…..my country and Paris.
Guess where I was? I was at the free toilet! It was super long Q, so while Q’ing, must take some pictures!
The guy in front of me is actually quite good looking.
It was so funny watching him like crossing his legs and with a constipated look, cause he was super urgent.
Always check out the timing of the lightings, I think its a different timing in different seasons.
So to avoid disappointment, make sure you check the timing. I didn’t go up the tower, as the Q was so long.
And even if you have the tickets you would need to Q to go up, so either you take the lift or walk up the insane 704 steps.
Or you can choose to venture up to the second floor as well. It is still quite a view.
You can also choose to go early in the morning.
Check out for the prices and timing here .
One thing that you MUST MUST MUST do in Paris is….. take the night cruise on River Seine!!!
Its totally romantic and breathtaking!
After the cruise, take a slow walk down the bridges and witness the love of many past travellers and locals confessing their love with a padlock written with words of romance and each other’s names, and well, some other crap.
Crossing the bridge, you are at almost a ghost town… it became very quiet…
As it was really late into the night, we decided to head back to the Lourve…
I felt that the streets in the night look like how Sherlock Holmes would walk on and solve crimes,
or I should say some crime lurking around the corner.
Till then….. may the city lights brighten the silence of the night…
All pictures are taken by me.
