"La Defense" La Défense Tip by cutestmidget

La Défense, Paris: 71 reviews and 133 photos


<font color=9966cc>La Defense is the centre of the 'new' CBD. There is a great shopping mall here, and it's a part of Paris that is often missed by the tourists because it's not 'old' Paris... But it certainly is a great example of the fact that Paris is capable of looking into the future as well as into the past.

Check out the <a href='http://www.virtualtourist.com/m/.128525/article/1038/7/?s=f'>travelogue</a href> that I'm working on for this area of Paris. This one is very much a work in progress with the photographs, as I cannot see La Defense at any other time than early in the morning when it's foggy and in the evening when it's dark, because I work all day - and goodness know that I DON'T want to go back there on the weekend! LOL...! Give me a bit of time and I'll get it done. :)
