    Favorite thing: 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.

    Favorite thing: La Defense

    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: 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! :-)
