France: Louvre & The Arc De Triomphe

There are plenty of famous sites in Paris, and well being in the city that's rich in history & art, You're definitely to visit the Louvre & The Arc De Triomphe. Basically the Louvre is a museum with over 30,000 art pieces and the mona lisa is one of them in there. As for the Arc De Triomphe, Its a huge arc with lots of names that are written on it of people who died in the war.

According to my lecturers, There wasn't much a point of going into the Louvre as it'll pretty much be impossible to see everything in 2 weeks? The collection is so massive that basically you wont be able to admire the paintings one by one, So in the end, We just headed to the glass pyramids outside of the Louvre

So well, After just checking out the Louvre, We were approached by some sales people who were selling souvenirs such as Miniature Eifel towers etc. So well if you're over there next time, You can bargain probably about 6-8 Eifel tower key chains per Euro.






We headed over to the Arc De Triomphe located at Champs Elysees road. Had a glimpse of it and as for Myself & Chung, We headed to the Arc itself to admire it more closely
