In this episode, we will be discussing some essential tips and information you should know before traveling to Paris. Whether you’re a first-time visitor or a seasoned traveler, this guide will help you make the most of your trip to the City of Light.

Key Points:

French Language: French is the official language of France, and while many Parisians speak English, it’s still a good idea to learn some basic phrases before your trip, for example, always greet people with “Bonjour” (Good morning) or “Bonsoir” (Good evening). Learning some French is particularly helpful because a lot of menus at restaurants are in French so I’d hate you for to make a sober social faux par by ordering a cocktail instead of a mocktail. Drinking Culture: There is a lot of drinking but *caveat* not so much seeing people drunk.People Watching as Sport: Not so much a sober thing but a good to know before you go thing. The french love to people watch; Cultural Etiquette: It’s important to be aware of French cultural etiquette   and proper dining etiquette. Most likely, you will be presented with a wine list at dinner. Some restaurants have non-alcoholic options but not really an extensive list. Popular Attractions: Paris is home to many famous landmarks and museums, including the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre Museum, and Notre-Dame Cathedral. It’s important to plan ahead and book tickets in advance to avoid long lines and crowds.Use  promo code  tsb23 to recieve 12% off Drink Moment
