Paris Day 4 & 5

Paris Visuals

Day 4
The Happiest Place on Earth

"Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world."

We took a subway to Disneyland! Taking a subway to Disneyland is much faster than getting on a coach so we decided not to waste time!

I love theme parks!! The rides were all quite mild - except the Tower of Terror!

Disneyland is a must-go every time i travel to places like Hong Kong and Japan! Am glad i have finally visited Paris's Disneyland!

After Disneyland, we decided to go to La Vallee Village

Branded goods going at over 50% cheaper!!!

How to go to La Vallee Village from Paris?

From Station Chatellet-Les Halles, Choose RER A with the terminus Marne La Valle/Parc Disneyland. Stop at the station Val D’Europe (one station before Parc Disneyland), in a very short walking distance you will find a new building ‘Centre Commercial Val D’Europe’. Walk through this building, and at the end you will find a complex full of branded factory outlet stores.

Known for their effortless elegance, Parisians are also respected for their savoir faire. It’s no surprise, therefore, that La Vallée Village has become a “must see” shopping destination in a city where visitors can have their pick of all things très chic.The Village has over 90 luxury outlet boutiques offering significant reductions on the recommended retail price, all year round. Here visitors are rewarded with extraordinary savings from revered French brands that include Bonpoint, Celine, Givenchy, Lancel, and the only outlet stores worldwide of Antik Batik, Agnès b. and Lalique. Among the legendary international brands represented are: Armani, Diane von Furstenberg, Jimmy Choo, Joseph, Marni, Moncler, Paul Smith, Polo Ralph Lauren, Valentino, Salvatore Ferragamo and Staff International, Dsquared² and Maison Martin Margiela. Set in the historic Île-de-France, the design of the Village echoes the human scale of the local villages, resulting in an intimate and relaxing shopping experience. The daily Cityrama Shopping Express whisks shoppers from the centre of Paris to the Village and other nice touches include a personal shopper service and Espace La Vallée, an art gallery of changing exhibitions, featuring work by international artists such as Erró, or Richard Texier. Visitors arriving with children will appreciate the children’s play area and the fact that the Village is only five minutes from the myriad attractions of Disneyland® Paris and is connected to many Disney® hotels by a dedicated shuttle service.

We reached too late though! :( Only managed to get one item and all the shops closed. Kay and Mae managed to get really nice stuff from Givenchy though! Jealousssss.

Day 5
Our Last Day in Paris

The last day of Paris was a lazy day for all of us. Most of them slept in but Sheena (our manager from Gushcloud) and I woke up to go do some last minute shopping~

No it's not escargots, it's mussels and IT'S SUPER AWESOME!!!!!

I just have to end this post with this funny car plate number.  LOL!

Now after all the Paris Visuals, the next post is going to be more informative - which means it'll be wordy but it'll be worth the read! More details on Paris and the sponsor, Air France! Also going to do a short paragraph about the bloggers/vloggers so you know how they're like off-screen - heh heh heh.
