Paris 5 days 4 nights GG-ied Part 1

The trip started off with a few hours of nap in Prestwick airport before we flew to Paris Beauvais airport. That night was cold, we have to wait in the airport from midnight until 4.30am to check in.

After checking in at Hotel Luna Parc, our first stop in Paris was The Louvre Musuem.

This musuem is really huge. It has more than 35,000 pieces of collections of paintings and sculptures. And if you are wondering why this musuem is so famous, here is the answer.

Yeap!! Its the painting of Mona Lisa by Leonardo Davinci

You can see alot of tourists crowded infront of the painting.

And i also 'mm zhap shu' and took one.

More pictures @ Lourve Musuem

Next, we headed to Place de Concorde. Here, you will find 8 female statues adouring the 4 corners of the square represent France's largest cities. You will also find a high-long-pen-like statue and some bangladeshs were selling really cheap souvenirs there.

We had dinner at Chartier, one French restaurant recommended by Lonely Planet. We failed to read French so one waiter helped us translate some words on the menu. The food tasted terribly and it was not cheap! -_-"

After dinner, we visited the busy street - Champs-Elysees. It is very famous with both shopping and heavy traffic.

The famous Arc de Triomphe is situated in a roundabout along the busy road. It is claimed to be the world's largest traffic roundabout!

And that was the end of Day 1 @ Paris.

On day 2, we spent almost 12 hours in Paris Disneyland. The weather was not good. It was drizzling the whole day. However, we had some great moments in the Disneyland. :)

The few hours in the morning was spent in the Walt's Disney Studio park.

We took 2 rides (Crush's Coaster and Flying carpets over Agrabah).

She was very scared before the ride.

Congratulations! You did it!

We also watched 2 shows (Cinemague and Moteurs...Action!Stunt show spectacular).

Motuers Action is a must watch!!! Simply fantastic!

We took pictures with Minnie, Mickey and the very naughty Goofie!

The second half of the day was spent in the Disneyland Park. We took some relaxing rides (Pirates if the Caribbean, Phantom Maner and Le Carrousal de Lancelot).

In the evening, there was this disney character parade show which lasted 50 minutes.

Then it is time for some more exciting rides. The Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast was fun. You need to have some basic arcade gun shooting skills (eg. time crisis) to score well.

This Space mountain : mission 2 ride was thrilling. It was fast and it lasted for several minutes inside the space mountain! Dont miss this if you like excitement!

p/s : The Star Tours was completely waste of time! NONONO!

When night falls, the view of disneyland was superb.

Day 2 ended with late dinner at KFC in Republic.
