Where to walk in Paris? Tourist free places

After you pass by the Eiffel Tower with the baguette, we recommend taking a walk around more unusual places in Paris. We, as always, have carefully prepared the list of such places for you.

An oasis in the center of Paris – Coulée verte René-Dumont

Why not turn a deserted viaduct and its surroundings into a park area where you want to walk for hours?
Favorite place for cycling and dog walking — 3 kilometers of greenery with restored railway facilities, which turned into art objects.

Private Museum of Old Fair Equipment

The creation of this museum was the life-work of the founder, who has been looking for future exhibits objects for 35 years: the carnival rides, musical instruments, costumes and all the rest of the attributes of chapiteaus. If you are looking for a museum in Paris where you can get involved in art and take beautiful photos, then this place is definitely for you.

The museum has 3 halls showing featuring different eras:

  • classic Venetian carnival
  • XIX century traditional fair
  • Paris Chapiteau beginning of the XX century

Tickets must be purchased online.
Tours are mainly conducted in French, but visitors can take booklets in English. In summer there are tours in English as well.

Ticket price
The cost of excursions for individual travelers:
€16 — adult ticket
€8 — ticket for children from 4 to 11 years
Free for children under 4 years old

Tour Duration
90 minutes

Opening hours
The museum is open on Wednesdays, weekends and French public holidays by prior reservation.

Art projection L’Atelier des Lumières

Paris residents came up with an alternative way to popularize the classics — combine it with digitals.. Here is our advice: visit the exhibition not like a museum, but like a light show that uses the canvases of eminent masters as an instrument.
You will find yourself surrounded by paintings moving around the room and sounds that accompany it. There are also textures to beautify the light, somewhere you see it through a water, somewhere a mirror, etc.

Ticket price
Tickets are preferably pre-purchased online.
€ 15 – Adult
€ 10 – Children
€ 14 – ticket for senior citizens

The oldest operating cinema in Paris — Le Louxor

If you are out of all the desired places, but want to spend the evening outside the hotel, we recommend you go to the cinema. Choose the cinema Le Louxor — you will not watch the next movie about superheroes here, but it’s quite realistic to get to the premiere of something from the modern indie-cinema. If it’s possible, buy a ticket to the Youssef Chahine Hall: it’s decorated in Egyptian style and has a balcony.

See here. Caution, French!

Bar La Mezcaleria

Where to end your day in Paris? That’s right, in a funky bar.

Here are the instructions:

  • Come to the hotel
  • Tell the staff, that you want to go to the bar and they will let you into the restaurant
  • At the restaurant, you will be directed to the kitchen, where you will see an unremarkable door

Cocktails are quite expensive and stylish, but their specialization is, as you might guess from the name of the bar, mezcal, cousin of tequila.

Opening hours
Daily, from 18:00 to 02:00

The average price of a cocktail
€ 10

Top photo spots in Amsterdam

Amsterdam has a certain reputation. But let’s discard stereotypes about red-light in this district and cupcakes with specific additives. Better think about where to take a non-trivial picture there: no tulips, no bicycles, and no goddamn Van Gogh painting reproduction.

Take a photo with flyaway hair on a swing “Over the Edge”

Amsterdam has a top-end attraction, which at the same time is the best observation deck...and this is a swing. The highest swing in Europe: about 80 meters above the ground at an angle of 45 degrees to the Amstel.

Children are allowed to swing, but like other entertainments of this kind, there are some limitations – you can do it if you are above 130 cm tall.

Ticket price
A ticket for a swing cannot be purchased without a ticket to the observation deck itself.

Capture life in pink at MaMa Kelly

It’s insta-paradise for fans of pink, designed for 200 guests: everywhere are velveteen, neon lamps and design accents with a golden color — the main character of the movie “Legally Blonde” would like to have some coffee here.
Tourists say that the menu is overpriced, but you are here for a photo.

Take a selfie at the Moko Museum

An independent museum of contemporary immersive art, where everyone goes to see Banksy, and find instead a lot of graffiti art, unusual furniture, and interactive rooms. We recommend going with someone, who doesn’t sniff disdain from Warhol’s art.

Dive into the pool for a great shot in the WONDR Experience

Try to catch the moment when there are no passers-by in the Cuyperspassage tunnel

One might wonder, what’s interesting in the tunnel? But there is something — they don’t have to be gloomy and boring.
The pedestrians part is faced with ceramic tiles, which is decorated in the classic dutch style: a panel with the sea, ships, and seagulls. The most difficult thing is to wait until no one walks along the tunnel and photobombed the picture.

When you collect all the best pictures of Amsterdam, don’t forget to order a transfer by i’way — then in your memories, the city will be definitely associated with comfort :)

Things to do in Dubai with kids

Sheiks, luxury and sand — what should do a tourist in Dubai, if not throw the cash around?

Hmm, let’s think about a high level of difficulty. So you need entertainment that will suit different age groups.

At first, you should book a reliable transfer from the airport, because children won’t be happy to wait long after an airplane landing.

Order 38.61 €

And then, you should already have answers to these questions: what’s interesting to see in Dubai? How to entertain a child here?

We have a plan for you!

Visit Dubai Garden Glow — an entertainment park made of recycled material

An unusual concept that will be appreciated by eco-activists: a luminous exposition of figures consisting of energy-saving light bulbs and recycled materials. If you travel with children go to the part of the park with dinosaurs.

Ticket price
48 dirhams (12,06 €) per person

Ski in the summer at Ski Dubai

We want coldness in summer and hotness in winter. So the most logical decision is to go to a park covered with technical snow, where the temperature remains within -1-6 ° C.
Even if you are a beginner who can barely stand on a snowboard, you will find a slope suitable for your range of difficulty.

Admission fee
735 dirhams in 2 hours (approximately 185 €)

Opening hours
Sunday – Wednesday: from 10:00 to 23:00
Thursday: from 10:00 to 00:00
Friday – Saturday: from 09:00 to 23:00

Recall that you also were a child at Legoland Dubai

A few hours will fly by if you travel with children from 2 to 12 years in Legoland. You will see all the stages of creating Lego people, visit an amusement park and a store with unique sets of toys. Prepare your wallet!

Admission fee
115 dirhams per person (about 29 €)

Opening hours
Sat-Wed: from 10:00 to 18:00
Thu-Fri: from 10:00 to 20:00

Take a walk along Alserkal and discover the modern art of the UAE

The former industrial area has become a stronghold of contemporary art. The first private museum, restaurants and art residencies. Local artists have the opportunity to be known and have yet their space.
Please note that the avenue is far from the subway and it’s better to get there by car.

Taste ethnic cuisine in a colorful restaurant Mama Zonia

Signature cocktails, DJ-sets in the evenings and the Amazon forests mood in design. Considering all the atmosphere, it is not surprising that the dishes there have varying degrees of strangeness, up to frog legs. But the price list for Dubai is quite affordable: from 40 dirhams (about 10 €) you can have a sushi-set, and 404 dirhams (about 102 €) cost a full set of dishes.

Opening hours
Daily, from 12:00 to 01:00
