    Lots have changed. You cannot imagine the amount of Chinese tourists in Paris now.

    To be more specific sans the sociology:

    1 Bertillon Ice Cream +1

    2. Arthur et Fox menswear
    My post last year:

    I endorse Max Jones' recommendation for Arthur et Fox
    on Boulvard St Germaine.I have slacks from them,
    one pair of which is over twenty years old and still looks
    good. They sell classical British-inspired clothing of very
    high quality at relatively reasonable prices.

    Other locations:

    Arthur et Fox
    Rue Vignon
    75009 9ème Arrondissement Paris, Paris, France
    01 47 42 00 32‎
    01 47 42 86 81‎ - Fax

    Arthur et Fox
    44, Rue Bac
    75007 Paris, France

    10 months ago I had an enjoyable and inexpensive meal with a French colleague at "Le Petit Prince de Paris", 12, rue de Lanneau 75005. [​IMG]

    But I left my Howard Yount scarf there. [​IMG]

    I recently stayed at hostel vintage(I was backpacking) rue dunkurque, 55 euros a night was clean and cheap, near a bunch of cafes, mabey 5 mins away from gare nord. Defenetly check out brasserie 1925 terminus nord if you get over there.

    So what?

    I'm Parisian and I can't see a problem with it...

    20 years ago,we had masses of Japanese and it wasn't then a problem at all...

    What sights/museums are worth seeing? Anything interesting to do in the evenings? Theatre? Odion?

    If anyone has some good recommendations for shirts that would be much appreciated. [​IMG]

    Bexley shoes are good value especially if you like black. Inexpensive wholecut and monk in particular. Leather shines up well. There is a branch near Madeleine and others throughout the city.

    The Louvre,Musee d'ORSAY are the main ones ...

    The Impresionists are in Orsay and the Louvre is one of the biggest museums in the world...

    You have to go there...

    Go on the Eiffel tower and the BATEAUX mOUCHES...

    It is great especially at night.

    "My" Paris:

    I miss entering Paris by car, the museums (Palais de Tokyo, and many others), the parks (the sailboats and potted palm trees in Luxembourg, the sand of the Tuileries), La Fontaine Stravinsky, the far too strong cigarettes I only smoke in Paris (France), the Pernod I only occasionally drink there, the professional (and sometimes arrogant...) waiters, the hosed-down sidewalks in the morning, the street football tournament for kids at Le Grand Arche, Tom Waits in Le Grand Rex, I even miss the metro... And the light, and the streets, and the buildings. And.

    To try and get some Paris in my home, I bought this one for my daughter:

    God I hate these threads.

    I don't know a lot of cities well, but on the plus side I don't talk about them as if I did.

    You're being a bit harsh. If you are visiting a city for a short stay an itinerary is a good idea, especially a city like Paris which has lots of attractions. They simply may not have the time to flâner.

    Lucky bastard! For food I can't recommend highly enough La Villaret northeast of the Place de la Republique. Some good articles written about it if you do a Google search. My wife and I both work in the food and wine industry and we agree it's one of the best meals we've experience. Have fun!

    I should also mention Willi's Wine Bar being a fun place for fantastic inexpensive bottles of wine. It works well anytime of night be it before dinner, after dinner or for dinner itself!
