One of the most romantic cities on earth, a cultural and fashion centre and home to many top restaurants in the world and some of the best museums. All these are probably the reasons why the City of Light, Paris, is often considered by its many admirers to be the most beautiful city in the world.
Paris was our final pitstop of our Svalbard #KeHujungdunia trip. As we flew on Malaysia Airlines, we had to connect back to either London, Paris or Frankfurt to fly back to Kuala Lumpur. As both my better half and I have never been to Paris, we thought it would be nice to spend a couple of days of being a tourist in this city with more than 2.2 million populations.

Paris has so much to offer but we had only about 50 hours to spend. Hence we decided not to visit too many places and instead do a “free and easy” style tour to some of the spots that interest us the most. I guess the museum and the art have to wait for the next trip insyaAllah.
Here are some of the random photos I took throughout the 2-day stop.
View from our hotel.
Weather was good. Around 5 degrees which was WARM in comparison to -20 degrees we had in Svalbard for a few days.
Plenty of classic and modernised Paris cafes which are great place to chill.
Good food too. Croissant to die for.
Sacré-Cœur Basilica was in our “to-see” list simply because it’s a pretty looking building as well as its happening surrounding and good view. So it is a good place to experience a few different things.
We had enough of walking so we decided to skip the 220-step staircase and hopped into the Montmartre Funicular.
View from top. Nice place to do people-watching while you were being watched by pick-pocket experts and scam-artists.
I love this little square the most, full with activities and people. Plenty to see.
More yummy food!
A few minutes of walking from Sacre Coeur is the Le mur des je t’aime or The I Love You Wall. The wall is a work of art conceived by Frédéric Baron and Claire Kito, a must-see for couples from all over the world visiting Paris. Katanya, #MudahTerhibur betul.
How long does it take for you to locate “bahasa melayu” version of I love you?
The more common Paris sites.
And of course the shopping. La Vallée Village outlet definitely deserves a day by its own.
Paris is definitely a nice place to wind down after a hectic few days in Svalbard. We wish we had an extra couple of days to explore and experience more of what Paris has to offer but it was time to head back home 🙂
This post marks the end of Svalbard #KeHujungdunia series. Thank you so much for reading and leaving your comments.
So the magic question, where next?
I can’t tell for sure right now but one thing for sure, it will definitely not be easy for me to top this Svalbard experience.
