La Défense, Paris
Go toLa Defenseand take a view from the top of the Grand Arche
In La Defense you find a very large shoppingmall. A good alternative for a rainy day
see the fantastic and futuristic architecture of La Defence.
I've never seen anything like it, but then I don't come frm Singapore, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur or New York. Futuristic skyscrapers are new to me. I love it.
This business district is like a futuristic universe
where form and content meet in beauty : Active and lively during the day, deathly silent at night. Not just office buildings, but a variety of things to see. Besides the different international trade fairs, exhibitions, concerts or theatrical performances that take place in the CNIT or on the roof of the Arche, you can find a wide variety of restaurants, stores, and outdoor shows. And, for several years, on June 21st, the official Holiday of Music 'Fête de la Musique', La Défense hosts a great music festival that includes all sorts of side shows using light and water.
Favorite thing: Business centre with skyscrapers, modern shopping centres, hotels etc. an unusual sight for newbees like me.
Favorite thing: If you like modern architecture, you simply must visit:La Defense, a new parisien quarter.
Favorite thing: One must see the Le Grande Arche at La Defense. It's an amazing archicture! Once you stand in the middle of the arch, you should be able to see the Arc De Triomphe! :-)
