The city of love is calling your name. But can you afford to go to Paris? Of course, you can! With these thrifty apps, your journey will cost a lot less than expected.
Paris, the capital of France, has long been a tourist magnet - and for a reason! This beautiful place is steeped in history, culture, romance, and opportunities to have a lot of fun. No one who is truly eager to explore the world should miss it. Your budget will, of course, dictate your course of action, but that doesn't mean you should postpone your journey indefinitely. In fact, you can visit Paris at a dime. Here's how. First and foremost, avoid cabs at all costs. They are exceptionally pricey. Instead, use the metro as your main form of transportation.
Next comes the topic of accommodation. You can't exactly visit a place for more than a day without having somewhere to sleep. In this case, just like in any other, your smartphone will be of great use. Believe it or not, an app will help you find just what you need - at a bargain. Download and install HotelTonight and be pleasantly surprised. It offers an enormous database of hotels and hostels, but that's not where the story ends. Often, the app will come up with some amazing deals, giving you a chance to save a lot of money.
Obviously, there's no better way to complete your adventure than to enjoy the wonders of French cuisine. With hundreds or perhaps even thousands of bars and restaurants scattered across the city, Paris truly has plenty to offer. Simply walking into the first one you fancy, however, won't necessarily end well. Either you will be turned away for not having reservations, or your entire weekly budget will be obliterated in one go. Play it safe. Do a bit of research online and make sure you pick a place that has plenty to offer yet is still within your means. Don't worry, the food in most places is absolutely delicious.
