    Le Forum des Halles: cheap shopping

    there, you will find books, music, home furnishing, men's, sporting, kid's and women's clothes, computers(although not the cheapest), shoes and toys...
    also a huge meeting point.
    walk along rue Rambuteau from Beabourg to Les halles or vice versa to see more shoe shops...
    also take time to walk in the small garden above les Halles and go to the church St Eustache... and then have a beer in one of the surrounding pubs.
    from les halles, take rue de Rivoli towards Concorde, you can shop even more ! on your way you will see the Louvre and then at Concorde you can visit museum du jeu de paume(modern art) after the Tuileries Garden !

    As we used this metro a lot, we passed a few times, also because it was walking distance from our hotel....

    But I am afraid to say I did not buy anything, so Stace promised me a weekend shopping in Madrid (hehehe poor him lol)

    Le Forum des Halles: Affordable bargains in city center

    Le Forum des Halles is a large, multi-storey shopping centre located off the back streets behind Rue de Rivoli on the Right Bank. Lots of top names are here at what I found to be very affordable prices like Sephora Cosmetics, H&M, FNAC and many more. It's worth a few hours of your time

    A one-time food market, Le Forum des Halles has become a shopping mecca in recent years. With the world's busiest subway station, Chatelet-Les Halles, beneath all the shops, this place does get very crowded.

    Le Forum des Halles: Underground best off

    by Klod5 Written May 1, 2003

    Les Halles. Cet ancien marché est aujourd'hui forum et centre commercial. A proximité se dresse l'église Ste-Eustache du XVIème siècle (ici, à droite), la bourse de commerce et son dôme (ici, à gauche) et le centre Pompidou.

    Le Forum des Halles est un vaste centre commercial souterrain, avec une bibliothèque et de nombreux magasins, accessibles directement depuis le métro.
    Ne pas confondre avec le centre Georges Ponpidou, qui est un musée d'Arts Moderne (voir mes pages sur Beaubourg).

    What to buy: Les Halles (the Covered markets). This former market is today forum and shopping mall. To proximity the Ste-Eustache church of the XVIth century (here, on the right), the stock market of trade and its dome (here, on the left) and the Pompidou center.

    The Forum of the Hallesis directly a vast shopping mall underground, with a library and many stores, accessible since the subway.
    Not to confound with the center Georges Ponpidou, that is a museum of Modern's Arts (to see my pages on Beaubourg).

    This labyrinthine concrete mall extends three levels underground and includes the Ciné Cité multiplex, the Forum des Images and a swimming pool, as well as mass-market clothing chains and the Forum des Créateurs, a section given over to young designers. The first part of the centre was completed in 1979, the second phase by the Bourse du Commerce added in 1986.

    Forum des halles and Les Quatres Temps: The best shopping malls in Paris!

    by Silverflower Updated Jan 27, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As far as I am concerned the two best shopping areas/malls in Paris have to be The Forum Des Halles and the Quatres temps. They have huge malls with absolutely all types of shops.The quatres temps is a litle further out but still on the metro line and is in a cool area call La Defense-a new age sort of industrial district full of shiny skyscrapers and the Grande Arche (modern equilavent of the Arce de triomphe).In my photo the shopping mall quatre temps is the dark green building on the right of the picture.this is the outside area of la defense-if you loook carefully in the middle of the background you can see the view all the way down to the arc de triomphe!

    What to buy: clothes clothes and more clothes of course!
