Europe trip with SGD 2.3k all in – Paris, part 2)

Day 3
we reached at Gare De East (Paris) station at 8am something, we went to Paul ( a Bakery  shop very famous at France) to having our breakfast, I just remember their sandwich quite expensive, and look hearty, and both of us choose the 2 less expensive bun.

we went to the ticket counter to buy 2days visitor pass.   I have request for early check in, and lucky they allow me to do so. I was extremely exhausted, I took a nap after all.

 

Libertel Gare de L’Est Francais
13 Rue Du 8 Mai 1945, 10. Gare du Nord – Gare de l’Est, 75010 Paris , this hotel are very strategic, opposite is Gare du l’Est main station , Gare du Nord staion  only 400m away .

I travel via RER to Lavallee village, if other option you may refer to the official web site
Longchamp are very cheap at there 1 medium longchamp only Euro 45 outside will be Euro.
don’t forget only Euro 180 at the single receipt can claim for tax return.

 

Day 4
we went to Louvre museum in the morning after we having hotel buffer breakfast, there is few way that you able to reach there by Metro or RER.
The closest Paris Metro station to the Louvre Museum is Louvre Rivoli and Palais Royal Musée du Louvre, both on Line 1 (yellow) which travels underneath Rue de Rivoli.
The closest RER station is Chatelet Les Halles on line RER A.
Louvre is the one of three biggest museum in the world, extremely large unable to view item per item, so we must view the most important one.
The main entrance of Louvre is a glass pyramid, completed 1989, designed by a Chinese Architecture , Ieoh Ming Pei. liked Eiffel towel, this glass pyramid not acceptable by the Paris resident in beginning, but now a day Glass Pyramid become one of the landmark in Paris

 

 

Lunch at Louvre, so so.. only, if you have enough of time, I think you may dine in outside, but I love to visit museum so much and hope to have more time in Louvre.

I want to showed you my must see pieces in Louvre, first is the big three of Louvre

1) Winged Victory –  no head, no hand no pretty face,  I just don’t why this is the big three, but when you view its with 360degree, I feel the power , the freedom the victory.


2) Frank paused at the Venus de Milo statue at the Louvre , this is another handicap series, no hand for this venus

 

3) Mona lisa – is a half-length portrait of a woman by the Italian artist Leonardo da Vinci. Mona Lisa, display at Louvre since 1797. Mona Lisa famous with her smile, I keep gazer at this picture, but still unable to view her secret.
What you think ??
We spend quite long time at Lovre,  around 4pm we went to Arc de Triomphe, and Champ-élysées . The Arc de Triomphe de l’Étoile is one of the most famous monuments in Paris. It stands in the centre of the Place Charles de Gaulle, at the western end of the Champs-Élysées.
we saw there are having immemorial event for second world war because we saw a lot of body society member, old fork wearing black and secondary school student wear uniform from far away and run to the direction of  Arc de Triomphe, and gather at the ground floor
.
we are crazy for Macdonald at Paris, because Macdonald  having the millionaire games, and we brought quite number of set and wish to become millionaire. hahaha anywhere is good fun.

we saw a queue outside a shop, (we stay at Singapore for long time, we also have Singaporean behaviours, like to “Q” ) so we also queue to buy macaroon. the packaging look great and I hear from some other people this is the most famous Macaroon at the world, but the price was expensive too.

Day 5
We brought Opera cake and pie at a traditional bakery shop and went to the garden near by to ate  our breakfast at there, just like the TV show, throw the pie to the pigeon and so many pigeon around us, and we also walk around after breakfast. we took bus to Notre Dame de Paris-Notre-Dame, we just simply don’t want to travel by metro because all the metro station look very dirty. in my opinion if you travel via Metro, you cannot feel the beauty of Paris, because the impression will not good, travel by bus better.
Notre Dame de Paris, is a historic Catholic cathedral on the eastern half of the Île de la Cité in the fourth arrondissement of Paris, the interior really look awesome, and it is free, so I highly recommended, if you visit Paris.
Location
6 Parvis Notre-Dame, Place Jean-Paul II, 75004 Paris, France

There is only 1 limitation , less toilet at surrounding area, WL need to go to toilet urgently and we found only 1 toilet infant of Notre-Dame, we have no choice need to other place look for toilet, we simply took bus and alighted if we saw a public toilet.

we don’t know where we alight actually, but we saw this … Automation Public toilet, we just want to tasting this public toilet hence we alight the bus just for toilet.
there is a Carrefour new by, we went inside and look for our lunch, we brought 2 bun with just Euro 2, and some beverage, the bun at Carrefour was cheap, and I saw a lot of resident brought the grocery, so we did, and having our lunch at bus stop.
The Eiffel Tower is an iron lattice tower located on the Champ de Mars in Paris. It was named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower.
 recommend you buy ticket in advance, because the queue very long I think the waiting time for us around 1-2 hrs , maybe you book the restaurant in advance and having diner there. I think this will be more enjoyable.
Address: Champ de Mars, 5 Avenue Anatole France, 75007 Paris
This is the Opera house in front of Galeries Lafayette we didn’t go inside the opera house, we just pass by, and I think this building look great, so I took this picture.
we planed to buy Channel handbag at here, unfortunately we went to Lafayette at afternoon, all the handbag gone, and whole Lafayette have territory by People from China, I saw them crazy to buy all branded stuff.so if you want to buy Chanel please come at morning to queue.

Day 6

Actually we plan to go Versailles today, but I promise my friends to help her to buy Longchamp Handbag, but yesterday night to crowed and we have no chance to buy so I decide to let go Versailles, and we back to Lafayette and Printemps to continue shopping, unfortunately the design she want have out of stock so we request the sale girl to help us to check where have stock, lucky still have 1 pieces at Paris so we went there for collection. 

We still thinking we have ample of time and hang around, we do not know that Eurostar need to go 1-2 hours before, because in Euro Star station need to have custom check, I thought will be the same like other Europe Country we no need to go thought formality process. We       So scare we cannot catch Eurostar, we quickly fill the custom declaration card and we told the officer we have no enought time to Q and we need to cut Q because the Q was so long we afraid we cannot catch the train, and we found a lot of people same train with us have same problem, after passed the custom clearance process, the process was so strict, man need to took out all the shoes bell and so on. only left 8 minute, we ran like hell to the Euro star, and we cannot found our sit because we just simply enter to the nearest train door, and simply sit. A lot of people unable to took the train also and we found a lot of people is from last train, they unable to took last train too.

We reach UK around 6pm, time difference for 1 hours from Paris and London. Fee Dee meet us at King cross and took us to Pizza Expess for diner. This pizza was freshly made, the skin was awesome, and ingredient was rich, can u imagine I finish whole pizza myself. FeeDee told me live in Lodon you must be smart there alway have a great discount online, so you need to print out the online discount advance in order to enjoy the great discounts. Eg: Pizza Express, you print out discount coupon advance to enjoy 1 for 1 deal.

Day 7 
Early in the morning we came to Borough   Market, the market look clean and a lot of grocery that you able to find at here, for myself this is another type of wet market experience. inside you may see a lot of variety of vegetable, example:  I saw I store selling tomato, only tomato, but with more than 10 variety of tomato. beside that inside with a lot of local food, which is closer to the local life style.
 
 
I would like to special introduce a coffee Monmouth at Borought Market, of course  we need to Q for coffee and I feel the owner put a lot of effort in the coffee, we coffee very smooth and fragrance. 
 
  I saw a pre channel 5 artist ( Singapore) brewed coffee inside the coffee, FeeDee told me he is one of the owner too. 
 
we proceed with City hall of London, at there we saw the London Towel bridge, this is London Towel bridge, have you remember that our childhood song, London Bridge is falling down ….
 
the story began with American want to buy London Bridge from London, because the price was good so London sold London Bridge to USA, at the end USA receive not the London Bridge they want,  They actually want to buy London Towel Bridge not London Bridge this is 2 difference bridge.. because of this Story so we have this Song.
 
 
 
FeeDee told me this is a palace too, but more to prison the royal family, this is a sad palace I think
 
 
took picture with traditional London Public phone is a must, so am I
one of the most iconic place in London This is most definitely one of the most easily identified architecture in the world.
 
 
 

 Few day before we saw the Second World War immemorial  event in France, today Whole London was celebrate Poppy day, eveyone wear the poppy flower and all over the garden with fake poppy, I specially took the picture of fake poppy flower from Malaysia (my home country).

 
 
 
After that we went to the very famous church In London sone of the Royal family will having their wedding at there.  
 
 
Diner time, we went to China town for food, this is a Chinese restaurant owned by Hong Ki, which selling Hong Kong Style roasted foods, highly recommended fro this restaurant, the taste even better I ate at Hong Kong. W.L. don’t like to eat roasted duck, but this restaurant we ate quite a lot. hahaha   
 
 

after Diner we walk around Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square,  all these shopping district just near by, you may walk along the street, and all the road are full of  Christmas lighting, even we walk very far but still very excited, besides Christmas Lighting this Elephant was for Charity, we saw thousand of difference design along the street.

Buckingham Palace is the official London residence and principal workplace of the British monarch, this palace with best location, perfect view, good scenery, helpful artworks. and very good and wonderful place to visit
 
 
We are looking coffee shop for a short break, and I look the design of shop houses, look great right ?  
FeeDee told us, this is the most famous Fish and Chip in London, they are using peanut oil to fry Fish and Chip, and inside was so crowed, we only able pack the food and dine while walking.
