Things you need to know before visiting Paris
Always be careful with your wallet or purse
Prior to embarking on any of our flights to Paris, learning about safety is a must. When it comes to Paris, there are only some minor issues as it is a relatively safe city. Pickpocketing poses one of those concerns, as it is the most common form of crime in Paris. Keep your valued possessions with you at all times, keep your money in the hotel safe, or consider using traveller’s checks.
Make sure to greet shop salesmen, when entering and leaving, by saying “bonjour” when you go in, and “au revoir” upon leaving. It would be considered very rude if you don’t do so.
Flights to Paris will leave you hungry, and France is the country with some of the finest restaurants in the world. Make sure that you don’t leave anything on the plate, as this is considered an insult. Also, “doggie bag” is not even a thing in Paris, so just finish your meal, it’s going to be delicious anyway!
