Place of interest: France

France is one of the famous country in Western Europe. Because of the geometric shape of its territory, French people often refer to Metropolitan France as L'Hexagone (The "Hexagon"). I am most facinated by the many historical places and famous arcitecture buildings that can be found in France. If I have the opportunity to go for holiday in Europe, I would love to go to Paris, the capital city of France. Paris is also known as one of the most romantic city in the world where couple would choose to go for their honeymoon.

The cost of going to France for a holiday is indeed seems very expensive to me. Well, with the Malaysian ringgit to Euro currency exchange rate I cannot afford it yet. I think if you were to travel there without joining a tour agency, it can cost much cheaper and you would have plenty of time visiting your favourite place of interest there. But one of the most difficult thing of going there without a comprehansive tour package is finding the best and cheapest hotels rate in France. Well, not only in France alone but also in any other part of the world.


The Louvre is one of the French capital’s most renowned sites. It is formerly the residence of the Kings of France. It is now one of the world greatest museums. Its exhibition areas are divided into eight major sections: Near Eastern Antiquities; Egyptian Antiquities; Greek, Etruscan and Roman Antiquities; Islamic Art; Sculptures; Decorative Arts, Paintings and Prints and Drawings. The best known of the Louvre’s extensive art collection is undoubtedly its most oft-visited and famous painting, Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, located in the Renaissance Italian Paintings section. The Winged Victory of Samothrace, the celebrated headless statue with outspread wings, and the Venus de Milo are two of the most frequently viewed Greek statues, while the Seated Scribe is one of the most emblematic pieces in the Egyptian Antiquities section.

If you ever go to France, you must go Paris to visit the Eiffel Tower too. When we see/ hear/ talk about the Eiffel Tower, everyone knows that it is a symbol of France. You can have a dinner and a Moulin Rouge Show at the Eiffel Tower. If I am not mistaken, it is better if you book for the Moulin Rouge Show fo avoid dissapointment of tickets being sold out. There are many hotels in Paris which you can choose from and one thing for sure, you can almost definately get to view the Eiffel Tower from your Paris Hotel if you ever choose to stay there.


The next place I want to introduce is The Lido. Bonheur» (Happiness): the title sets the tone for the revue at the Lido which is the famous cabaret on the Champs Elysées. From one tableau to the next, you will follow the story of a woman in search of happiness: against a background of soft, stirring music, lights and other special effects, the Bluebell Girls illuminate the stage with their sumptuous costumes and sensual choreographies created by Pierre Rambert. Whether you see the show on its own or with dinner, the 26th revue of the Lido promises several hours of « Happiness »!

There are many more nice and interesting places to visit in France which I have not discribe it here. I have some pictures of some of those interesting places to visit which I would like to share it here.
