Day 13 – Galeries Lafayette, Paris, France

April 2015

Second day in Paris and first order of the itinerary is Galeries Lafayette. We took the metro and got-off at Chaussee d’Antin Galeries Lafayette stop. We were there just after opening hours and there were already queues by mainland Chinese wanting to enter branded hand beg stores. Crazy! We proceeded to the uppermost floor and exited to the roof via an escalator. Here the floor is grass carpeted and you have a wonderful view with the Eiffel Tower in the far background. There are chairs for you to sit and soak in the warmth of the sun. I consider this as a Paris secret as well as a photo spot.
