Paris France Vacation Packages Save On Paris Trips Paris France Paris Travel Guide

Il est difficile de ne pas aimer Paris, mais il faut du temps pour se sentir à l'aise. Le sens de la collision culturelle peut être forte et le décalage horaire ou de la fatigue fait qu'empirer les choses. Donc, voici 10 façons d'augmenter votre niveau de confort. Lorsque vous planifiez un voyage à Paris, ajoutez-les à vos conseils de base.

1. Prenez les choses lentement. Bien que précipiter autour est parisien, précipitant ses plaisirs est pas. Un beau moment, un verre, une vue; tous sont meilleurs quand bien savouré. Ralentissez-vous vers le bas en terminant chaque repas avec un café. Pas de grande tasse, juste un café parisien bon laiteux. Ce petit plaisir délicat est la façon dont tous les habitants finissent un repas. Pour éviter la caféine, juste demander un déca ( "DAY-kah").

2. Vous aimez boulangeries et pâtisseries de Paris. Vous avez donc besoin de connaître les deux expressions clés. Un, à emporter ( "AH ahm-por-tay"), signifie que vous voulez l'ordre "d'aller." L'autre, sur place ( "plass de SUHR" -rhymes avec "surface"), signifie que vous voulez manger là . les serveurs occupés apprécient cela, comme le font les autres en ligne.

3. Paris est une vieille ville remplie de surfaces dures et difficiles. Pourtant, la marche est la meilleure façon de le voir. Donc, avant de venir, offrez-vous une pédicure médicale. Vous ne serez pas déçu et vous allez certainement gagner en endurance.

4. Portez votre rouge à lèvres! Rien ne rend une fille se sentir mieux et, à Paris, que la confiance compte.

5. Méfiez-vous sur le trottoir. En dehors des grands boulevards, les trottoirs ici sont très étroites. Cependant, les Parisiens se précipitent le long de ces parler sur leurs téléphones. Hypnotisé par un coucher de soleil ou shopwindow, il est facile d'arrêter brusquement. Ensuite, le droit parisien occupé derrière sera jeté au-dessus de vous. Il suffit de rester conscient de votre environnement; vous éviterez les collisions.

6. Pour les photos sur les marchés, à l'intérieur des boutiques ou des individus, demandez avant que vous cassez. Ici, la loi donne aux gens certains fournisseurs des droits et l'image du marché, en particulier, provoquent souvent une scène. Pour poser avant de photographier un chien mignon, un marché ou trouver un affichage de fleurs belle est juste poli. Il est rare pour quiconque de dire non moins les enfants sont impliqués. En outre, bien qu'ils aient abandonné sur les téléphones intelligents, la plupart des musées interdisent la photographie au flash. Si vous l'essayez, les gardes en colère vont fondre sur vous.

7. Parisiens disent pardon ( «Pahr-DOAN"... Prononce à peine le n) plutôt que Excusez-moi. Pour atteindre la porte dans une voiture de métro emballé, tel est le mot que vous avez besoin.

8. Ne pas mettre en place avec une attention non désirée dans la rue, dans les parcs ou dans le métro. Central Paris est parfaitement sûr mais il y a des hommes qui repoussent les limites. Si vous êtes dans un endroit occupé, quelqu'un d'autre peut leur dire hors tension. Sinon, dites-directement et forcefully- "pas N'insistez!" ( "Nahn-SIS-tay-pah!")

9. Si quittant la station de métro à travers une porte, vous devez pousser (une lourde porte de métal marqué Poussez en vert), la maintenir ouverte de sorte qu'il ne frappe pas la personne derrière vous. Parce que les portes sont lourdes, ce petit geste compte. Dans un sondage de la ville, les Parisiens réclamé une baisse récente dans une telle tenue de la porte prouve "que les bonnes manières sont en déclin."

10. Dans les cafés, vous vous sentirez mieux si vous choisissez la bonne table. Pas l'intention de manger? Ne vous asseyez pas où il est fixé pour un repas. (À l'inverse, ne pas s'asseoir à une table nue pour commander le dîner.) Si vous êtes pressé par le temps, mais tout simplement pour prendre un café? Commandez-le debout à la barre. Vous pouvez facilement payer et partir, plus vous économiser de l'argent.

Enfin, pourquoi perdre votre voyage à Paris en soulignant à propos de souvenirs? Voici deux choix de saison parfait, à la fois faciles à emballer et convenant à tout âge:

Bodrum Peninsula Turkey Travel Guide

Having travelled to Yalikavak many times, it is now, my favourite holiday destination in Turkey. With much to admire, this beautiful seaside resort, is popular with foreign and Turkish tourists. There are five reasons in particular why I keep going back, and this article also serves as a good guide for first time visitors to the resort. Guide on Things to do in Yalikavak Sandy Beaches Yalikavak’s beaches are just a narrow strip of sand but they are great places to hang out, in the day or in the evening.

The main stretch of beach runs from the centre of the village down to the old fishing port. Free sun loungers belong to bars and restaurants situated on the promenade, and you can sit there for as long as you like, providing you buy refreshments or food. Most bars also have good WiFi connections, so you can lie on your lounger and surf the Internet. Jetties and floating platforms, lead way into the shallow water and the beach is never crowded, even in summer, making it a great destination for family beach holidays. Stay there until “the golden hour” and you are in for an extra treat. This area is renowned for vibrant sunsets, so wait until the sun drops down behind the horizon, for the perfect photo opportunity.

The Basilica Cistern of Istanbul and the Heads of Medusa Turkey

I walked down 55 stone steps, sensing dampness in the air when I reached the bottom and the Basilica cistern. The only sounds were whispers from tourists and the odd drip of water. A shop stand was in the far left corner and they beckoned me over.For a small amount of Turkish lira, I could dress up as an Ottoman princess and go home with a photograph souvenir. The disapproving look on my face showed that I felt this trade to be rather tacky and unsuitable for a building that is nearly 1500 years old.

Also known as the Yerebatan Sarayi or Sunken Palace of Istanbul,  the man-made platforms took me away from the entrance and further into the cistern.Basilica Cistern Istanbul;To my left and right were tall columns; lit with floodlights while beneath me were fish, bigger than the size of my hand, following the path in the shallow waters below. Perhaps they have learned to associate humans with food.

Basilica Cistern; Historians say that in the year 527, seven thousand slaves grafted to build the Basilica cistern covering 9800 square meters, with 336 columns and the capacity to hold 100,000 tons of water that made its way to the citizens of Constantinople.Definitely impressive but as I have learned with historical structures in Turkey, the Ottoman empire had more interest in lathering themselves with riches  and the cistern fell into a bad state, used only by locals who dipped buckets into wells to fetch water up with the occasional fish

Fish of Yerebatan Sarayi;In the 16th century, a Dutch traveller named P.Gyllius, spread the word of the Yerebatan Sarayi to the western world which perhaps convinced the Ottoman empire they had something worth saving. Restoration work over hundreds of years has ensured that it is now one of the historical marvels of Istanbul.

But did you know that Mark Twain, James Bond, and Medusa all have a connection to the Yerebatan Sarayi? Mark Twain; In one of the greatest books about travel “Innocents Abroad,” Mark Twain does not paint a pretty picture of the time he spent in Constantinople.He describes the grand bazaar as “a monstrous hive of little shops” and the Hagia Sophia as “the rustiest old barn in heathendom”He was delighted with the Yerebatan Sarayi though, calling it the Thousand and One Columns.

“You are forty feet underground, and in the midst of a perfect wilderness of tall, slender, granite columns, of Byzantine architecture. Stand where you would, or change your position as often as you pleased, you were always a centre from which radiated a dozen long archways and colonnades that lost themselves in distance and the sombre twilight of the place.”

Constantinople Basilica ;The Heads of Medusa; Walk to the back of the Basilica cistern to find two columns held up by heads of Medusa. One lays upside down and the other lays on its side. No one is sure of the factual reason for this but one favoured suggestion is no one who looked at the heads would turn to stone.

Yerebatan Sarayi ;The Basilica Cistern and James Bond; Much before my time, but the 1963 film from Russia with Love, shows James Bond sailing through the columns of the cistern to reach a secret door. There are no signs of amazement or appreciation that he was in a famous structure of Istanbul but then again, he did have naughty and devious spies to catch.Readers Question: Have you been to the Basilica cistern (Yerebatan Sarayi) of Istanbul? Were you impressed as much as I was? Readers Tip : The cistern is very close to the Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque so you can see them all on the same day.

Skip-the-Line Eiffel Tower Ticket in Paris


Skip the line at the Eiffel Tower in Paris with this fast-track entrance ticket, and explore the different levels at leisure! After meeting a host to hear some fun facts and history about the tower, walk to the priority entranceway and then head straight up the elevator independently. Skip-the-line access to the attraction’s 1st and 2nd levels is included, as well as standard access to the Eiffel Tower’s summit.

Highlights
Choice of several departures throughout the day
Enjoy fantastic aerial views
Skip the line
Meet your host near the Eiffel Tower and listen to a brief introduction about this fascinating landmark– its history, architecture and views – before heading to the base of the tower with your skip-the-line ticket and fact sheet. Queues in the peak summer months can sometimes last up to two hours; fortunately, you’ll bypass those lines by heading through the priority entranceway and then up the elevator independently.

Your ticket includes entry to the tower’s 1st and 2nd levels, as well as its summit, and you can spend as little or as long as you like at each point. Walk around independently, soaking up unforgettable views from this iconic architectural marvel, and reading about the tower’s history from your fact sheet. Completed in 1889, the Eiffel Tower took precisely two years, two months and five days to make. While it wasn’t loved by the locals originally, it wasn’t long before it won over the hearts of Parisians and visitors alike.

On the 1st level, look down at the pin-like people lined up below you, and gaze at the Champ des Mars -- Paris’ famous green park -- stretching out toward Montparnasse Tower. The best vistas are arguably seen from the 2nd level, where you’re high enough to soak up the city skyline, but still close enough to see famous landmarks (like Notre Dame Cathedral) without needing a map.

For jaw-dropping views, continue to the summit! The skip-the-line access you get for the first two levels does not include the 3rd level; everyone must wait for one elevator, but the line doesn't usually last longer than 30 minutes – a short time to wait to stand at the top of the Eiffel Tower!
