Third Day of Paris

We climbed up the top deck of Eiffel Tower on our third day. That’s how we started our day. Breakfast at the hotel was convenient. All bakery items so it doesn’t raise any question. PLEASE BUY YOUR TICKET PRIOR TO YOUR TRIP! Cause that’s what we did. So didn’t have to que like the others and we didn’t have to wait. The que to buy the ticket is freaking long! I’m guessing you can easily waste few hours just to get a ticket. There’re lots of websites (official and unofficial) that sells tickets up to Eiffel Tower. From there we can see Grand Palais, Trocadero and even Notre Dame! The view is just breathtaking. Some think that its not worth the money but to me since you’re in Paris why not you climb the premier spot of all?

We took the Metro to Franklin D. Roosevelt station where Champ Ellysees is just a walking distance away. The exit adjacent to Avenue Montaigne Street where Elliz viewed LV handbags that is almost RM1K cheaper than KL price! We walked from there on to Tour (tower) Eiffel.

We then took the HOHO (Hop On Hop Off) around Paris. Started from Champ de Mars (where we had our picnic lunch) then we went to 5 attractions before we stopped at Notre Dame.

When we were @ Notre Dame, we had the chance view Lover’s Bridge that is adjacent to the Grand Chapel. All along the Seine River, people would mark and lock their secrets away by securing a lock (mangga) on the bridge’s (river) fencing. If you can see, it is full of locks! 

Grand Chapel Notre Dame is an art on its own. I didn’t have the chance to see this place when I came here in 1996 with my parents but having to view the chapel with my very own family is just satisfying. People flock the architecture wonder where you can feed pigeons out of your hands and please note that the souvenir shops along the streets here offers the best price compared to others THROUGHOUT PARIS! All you have to do is take time to browse and compare.

After a nice hot coffee at the roadside café we make our way back to the hotel via HOHO.
