Paris straight from Bb.

Hello there, timeout muna tayo sa articles on food. One of my "colleague-friend-boss" is currently in Paris right now for his vacation. He ask me what I want from Paris before he left the office off to the airport, I told him nothing but on second thought I told him I want photos of him in Paris. Why not? It is nice to see the place in friends photos on real time and not in post cards. As promised, he send me this first picture standing in front of the Eiffel Tower yesterday.


The sky looks so radiant, the weather seems to be so beautiful. One day, I will visit Paris and I will take my photo on the same spot. :) He is the guy who send me the photos, isn't he handsome (wink) single pa yan!

He send me more snaps today. Here they are

Info by Wikipedia

The Eiffel Tower (French: Tour Eiffel, (, nickname La dame de fer, the iron woman) is an 1889 iron lattice tower located on the Champ de Mars in Paris that has become both a global icon of France and one of the most recognizable structures in the world. The Eiffel Tower, which is the tallest building in Paris, is the single most visited paid monument in the world; millions of people ascend it every year. Named after its designer, engineer Gustave Eiffel, the tower was built as the entrance arch for the 1889 World's Fair.



The tower stands 324 m (1,063 ft) tall, about the same height as an 81-story building. It was the tallest man-made structure in the world from its completion until the Chrysler Building in New York City was built in 1930. Not including broadcast antennas, it is the second-tallest structure in France after the 2004 Millau Viaduct.


The tower has three levels for visitors. Tickets can be purchased to ascend by stairs or lift to the first and second levels. The walk to the first level is over 300 steps, as is the walk from the first to the second level. The third and highest level is accessible only by lift. Both the first and second levels feature restaurants.


The tower has become the most prominent symbol of both Paris and France, often in the establishing shot of films set in the city.

If to book hotels, take louvre hotels.com or accor, they have pang masa prices for families and on budget lang.
