Anyway, this time I would like to talk about Paris first. Ah, the city of light. Who doesn’t know Paris? As the capital of France, this city is well-known for a lot of things. Foods, art, culture, you name it they have it. Eiffel Tower is one of the most famous landmarks in Paris and one of the most obvious things to visit while you are there.

In between those sightseeing and shopping in Paris, we should also use this opportunity to try as many typical and delicious French food as we could.

If you are not afraid of a little adventure in gastronomy, you should try some of the more challenging food of France. Paris has all the best places to get some escargot and oysters; it certainly is interesting to try!
Of course, you couldn’t miss trying the sweet goodness of French delicacy. Who would say no to one or a dozen macarons? Or, you could get some various flavor of crêpes as you would like. French will never go out of pastries to choose, and Paris has some of the best pastries you can get, obviously. You can even learn to make your own macarons at the macarons class offered by Galeries Lafayette, so you can bring back not only the macarons itself but also the skill to make it by yourself at home.
