Paris : Avenue des Champs-Élysées

_MG_7825-press

From the Arc de Triomphe, you can start your walk towards Place de la Concorde via Avenue des Champs-Élysées. We started our walk at 1230pm. Think of this place as a huge mall, on a street.

Avenue des Champs-Élysées is the street you see in the center of the above photo with lots of people on the sisdewalk.

The Champs-Élysées is a high class road lined with designer post brands. There are so many people here. Mostly tourists, the shops are filled and the sidewalk is packed.

I believe the culture here has been copied by many other countries. Sungai Wang in Kuala Lumpur, Orchard in Singapore ; all follow this French blueprint.

The Louis Vuitton that gets every girl crazy is located on the other side of the road. (West direction)

We did not really spend much time in the shops. What is here, can be seen back in Malaysia or Singapore. Same products.

We did stop by in a Monoprix to buy some water. Paris is dry and you need to stay hydrated.

Make sure you try the Fanta here. It is very different from the Fanta you get at home.

Like I said, this place has high pedestrian traffic.

Take some time and stay in the shade.

It was a perfect day for a walk in Paris. Clear blue skies and a cool gentle breeze.

Paris, I Love You.

All in all, it was an hour’s walk. It was time for lunch. We stopped by a small stall and bought a baguette for €3.50. It was not cheap.

A simple baguette with ham and cheese.

It was not tender. Tough was an understatement.  My jaw was so tired. My legs were not, but my jaw was.
