Paris Tourist Trap Tips by Maillekeukeul
Paris Tourist Traps: 437 reviews and 339 photos
... I would never :
1. take the Paris tour bus to discover the main monuments of the city;
2. think that, because I don't speak french, nobody will understand me, and, consequently, refuse to discuss and share with Frenchmen;
3. enter a McDonald's because french food frightens me;
4. forget to tip the nice waiters and forget to forget to tip the rude ones;
5. rent a car, as it is unuseful in Paris... !
Fun Alternatives: Alternatives :
1. Walk all day !!!
2. Speak to people who seem to be kind and smiling (there are some, believe me !)
3. Eat in "brasseries", "cafes", but avoid "fast food" !!!
4. Tip whenever you think it's right : tipping is not mandatory iin France
5. Use the public facilities (bus, metro, tramway)
