Paris is known by many names, and there are loads of reasons why it is one of the world’s most ‘Instagram-able’ locations.

Search For Sharing Hostels And Hotels
Paris is a popular tourist destination with several inexpensive hostels and communal (mixed or female-only) dormitories. Hotels with breakfast, lounge spaces, and live DJs can be found for as little as Rs.2,000-2,500 per night – and if you’re a solitary traveler, the socializing may start right here.
Due to greater crime rates, certain streets (arrondissements) in Paris are much less desired by ex-pats/visitors, thus researching locations before renting one.
Expenditure estimate: ₹10,000 for 5 days
Sightseeing Tour With Hop-On Hop-Off (Hoho)
Another wonderful approach is to prevent oneself from remembering French route names if you don’t know French.
Although the city is very well served by buses and metros (which cost about €1.90 for a one-way ticket), you can get a 1-day and 2-day hop-on hop-off bus ticket for as little as €35 and enjoy stunning panoramic views in a double-decker bus. Not to mention the packages that include a Seine River cruise.
The bus travels on chosen routes throughout the day, every hour, and covers almost all of the tourist destinations.
Estimated cost: ₹3,000 (sometimes less if you take the local bus or subway).
