Let's Get To It
Here are the 6 Best Paris Travel Tips You Should Know Before Going To Paris!
Tip #1 Always Communicate With the French Basic Greetings 🗣️🗩 ☺️
Bonjour, Bonsoir, Merci, Au Revoir, Bonne Journée Good Morning, Good Evening, Thank you, GoodBye, Have a Nice Day
Greetings are very important to the French 🥐
Before asking somebody a question, always begin with a greeting.
Speaking some basic French words will demonstrate respect for the locals.
Begin with a pleasant greeting, such as Bonjour, and then ask whether they speak English.
Parlez – vous anglais? “Do you speak English?”
This approach will demonstrate to locals that you are a kind person who values them and their country. It shows the locals that you respect their culture and took that extra effort to understand the beauty of the French language.
Ending your conversation with Merci! or Bonne journee! Will make a big difference in how you navigate and deal with the French. You’ll notice more French people respond and greet you with happiness.
That’s why we’ve put this Tip as Tip # 1 on this list of our 6 Best Travel Tips you MUST know before visiting Paris .
Tip #2 Be Careful Of Scams 😈 - Avoid People Who Approach You On The Street 💪
Keep your eyes open! 😈
Have you heard of the Cup & Ball Game?
The cup and ball game is a CLASSIC trick very common in Paris. There are three cups and one ball. The scammer places the ball under one of the cups and shuffles all three cups around. The object of the game is to indicate under which cup the ball is found. To play the game, you have to make a bet and if you win, your money will be doubled! 🤑
Sounds easy right? But it absolutely isn’t! 🙈🙉🙊
It starts off slowly and it seems easy enough… that’s part of the plan. But the scammer 😈 is not working alone to pull off this con. Their friends are planted in the crowd to egg you on and encourage higher bets. When you see them win, you’ll be emboldened to try your luck! However, when someone from outside the scammer group makes a bet, the hustler running the game uses a sleight of hand 🃏 to make sure you lose.
You’ll definitely come across this rigged game near the Eiffel Tower🗼and Trocadéro, around Montmartre, and also on many bridges along the Seine River. The King 👑 is giving you this FINAL warning… DO NOT be sucked into playing this game. No offence, but you don’t stand a chance. You will lose! Unless you have a better sleight of hand than these scammers (highly unlikely) your chance of winning is like 1%
There are numerous distractors, scammers, and thieves in such a large city. So keep your eyes open. The King 👑 expects you to be a Royal Traveller… and Royal travellers do not get scammed by peasants. FACTS.
You should always be cautious of these people, who can appear to be so nice and friendly to you. They all virtually speak English, this is a tactic as a lead up to steal or injure you in an unsuspected way.
Moreover, try to keep your valuables hidden as much as possible. The King 👑 loves to wear elegant watches. BUT, in Paris… The King 👑 recommends you steer clear of wearing expensive and lavish watches ⌚ . Thieves 🥷 prey on unsuspecting tourists with money and there have been many cases of guys getting robbed for their watches even if they didn’t hold any Euro’s 💶 with them.
To avoid the possibility of being robbed or held up, avoid any suspicious people you encounter or who may approach you or ask for a favour.
Now do you see why we’ve put this Tip as Tip # 2 on this list of our 6 Best Travel Tips you MUST know before visiting Paris 🗼🥖👨🍳
Tip #3 Make Reservations in Advance 🥂 Use Apps like Zomato 🍅 to help you.
In Paris, there are thousands of hotels 🏨 and restaurants🍝
All of which have a lot of competition from other tourists to fill up space. Be aware of this and always remember planning is essential. Especially the higher end restaurants they usually are fully booked
So, before going to any of them, look for the one that seems to be the best fit for you and book it. This is when apps like Zomato, Trip Advisor, Secrets De Paris, Spotted By Locals, and TheFork are great apps to guide you on budget, tips, and the best foods that the locals enjoy in Paris.
As a result, you will avoid being startled by empty seats, and have a backdrop of every minor thing that is important to you.
Prices, food, quality, ambience, staff, availability and so forth… These are very important factors you must know beforehand when coming to a decision to visit a restaurant in Paris.
Some restaurants will not accept your reservation if you make it too late. So be aware of this… some Parisians are snobby😒
It is not that they won’t let you dine in the restaurant, but you’ll have to wait for an empty seat.
Download the apps we just listed here on this Tip. It only takes a few taps 🤳 to book and prevent the above issues!

Tip #4 Avoid Tourist-Oriented Restaurants 🥐 🥖👨🍳
In general, every traveller to Paris who wants to eat out will go to a well-known tourist restaurant that he spotted on social media. Why else do you think Paris has that insta touch?
You can thank Instagram, Facebook, TikTok and Snapchat as a result, of these restaurants being crowded with tourists, and their prices will be higher than other restaurants with a weaker or little no social media prescence.
Furthermore, these packed eateries would be disorganised because of the large number of orders.
As a result, you may have to wait for your order for an Hour or longer depending on the availability of chefs and waiters who can serve the demand
This does not imply that these restaurants don’t provide tasty food.
However, you can discover equally delicious food at a lower price.
So, consider visiting local smaller community establishments. Refer to the previous Tip which includes recommended Restaurant apps you should use to help you select a restaurant with the best quality of food for the best value you can get.
Paris is booming with restaurants serving a variety of tasty cuisines with authentic flavours that all Paris travellers will love.
