Visit Paris – 5 Essential Tips for Visiting Paris, France


David Meusnier: I am French and I live in France but every time I see one of your videos on France, I want to visit France.

Luc Feuillerat: Un beau pays dont les merveilles ne sont pas uniquement dans la capitale ^^

Frahamen: Water doesn't taste so good? You mean: it doesn't taste like Chlorine and Lead, like American water, but actually taste like, you know, water.

MrMrMaran: N'importe quoi. Une fois que t'as goûté l'eau de robinet Suédois ou finlandais tu va réaliser que l'eau Francais c'est de la merde. Désolé pour mon orthographe, le Francais n'est pas ma première langue.

scott šzabo: Frahamen you can actually drink tap water in France? i never did LoL

panda dragon: 6th tip: if you're an american please don't speak LOUDLY. Especially in the restaurants (it's really impolite for the other customers). Or in the subway (for instance do not shout "oh my god oh my god I'm in Pariiiiis and I'm drinking champaaaaaagne!"…. yep, I saw & heard that). Feel free to do that only if you really want to become a shit magnet. My 2 cents.

Jocelyn Wolters: panda dragon , you are my new best friend for this post!!

Aswin A: some Americans (the girls) have this strong (stereotypical) nasal voice… Which can be loud…

maureen kamide: Enjoy!
