Everyone just loves to celebrate romantic moments in the famous Eiffel Tower. Are there other things that make the city famous? Well, Paris is also the Capital of Fashion. It is where the most famous designers in the fashion industry, like Chanel, L’Oreal, Garins, Dior, Saint Laurent, Guerlain, Yves and Lancome, reside. Those people are synonymous with the best and finest fashion trends in the world.
The Seine River, where the city is situated (at the northern part), is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Also, an array of authentic and world-famous French restaurants lines the city’s walls. Paris remains as one of the most influential icons of fashion, historical significance, architectural ingenuity, and culinary excellence. It also contains the second largest collection of Michelin restaurants in the world, while Tokyo has the number one spot.
The city is composed of 20 districts or arrondissements, including the central metropolis where 2 million people currently reside. Each district is arranged properly, where the number signals are in a clockwise fashion starting from the Cathedral. The central business district is located in the 2nd district, as well as the Paris Stock Exchange. La Defense is on the outskirts of the city. However, it is where you can see the skyscraper district, in which architectural designs are modern and art museums are open to the public. Eiffel Tower is on the 7th district, while the famous Champs-Ulysses and Arc de Triomphe are on the 8th. If you are looking for famous bars and restaurants frequented by many local and international tourists, just go to the 11th district and you won't be disappointed. Students frequent the 5th district. The premier or the first district has very few residents, but there are a lot of historical sites and tourist spots to see. It is where you can find the Louvre museum and other historical places, some of which extend to the 2nd district. If you are on a budget, do not go to the 14th district. Go to the 13th instead, where you can find the China town.
Further west of Paris, located on the outskirts of the central city, lies the executive residential communities for the wealthy. The poorer communities are located on the northeastern side, mostly composed of immigrants.
