Feng shui of Paris
Paris is home to artists, poets, philosophers and romantics – not to mention great architecture with good feng shui, cuisine and museums. 50 million tourists come to Paris every year, making it the third most visit city in the world. I come to Paris as a feng shui consultant in search of the European or French form of feng shui. Paris is a birthplace of bikini, stethoscope and a pencil sharpener among other things – feng shui things. Arboreal Paris is famous for its 484 000 trees which boost the biophilia effect of this picturesque capital of France.
Travel in Paris
The best way to get to Paris from London is by Eurostar. Once in Paris, metro and foot are the best modes of transport. You can try the bikes but I’m not sure about them, to be honest. Retro tours on motorcycles is another mode of transport you can try to see Paris in a day or water Batobus tour is another one. Parisian metro has a distinct aroma, coming from the cleaning liquid they use. At one point, they tried a different cleaning material and people object because it didn’t smell the same. So you can say, that Paris has a distinct olfactory vibe (not to mention all the top brands such as Channel number 5, Dior and Opium).
High, panoramic views of Paris to appreciate feng shui patterns
There are several good places to have an overview of Paris. Tour de Eiffel is one of the obvious ones if you fancy queuing for hours or walking countless steps. There are 30 replicas of Eiffel tower around the world. Montparnasse Tower is a good alternative to the Eiffel Tower and has the highest roof terrace in Paris and Europe’s fastest lift which for lift fanatics is an attraction of itself. From Montparnasse Tower Panoramic Observation Deck, you can see all top power places such as the Eiffel tower, Arc the Triumph, Louvre, Notre Dame, Champs Elysées, and the rest.
The energy flow of Paris
Paris has been transformed with the famous redesign done by Georges-Eugene Haussmann which was a huge public undertaking commissioned by Emperor Napoléon III between 1853 and 1870. Paris’ street layout and distinctive appearance of the centre of Paris today is largely the result of Haussmann’s renovation work which opened up overcrowded and unhealthy settings by building wide avenues, new parks and squares.
Visual art and graffiti
If you don’t want to spend time in art galleries, street art and graffiti is a good alternative. You can use the street map app to guide you to the most visual graffitis in Paris.
The energy of food in Paris
The number of eating options in Paris is overwhelming making the French capital’s most dynamic and varied dining heaven destination. But where to start? The oldest Parisian cafe is Café Procope which was open in 1686 and also works as a museum for its famous patrons such as Voltaire, Marie Antoinette. Snails are one of the most famous dishes you can try there.
Or Au Pied de Cochon in the heart of the capital is the first institution to offer, from its opening in 1947, a continuous 24-hour service.
The green hour, around 5 pm is the drinking time, named in reference to absynthe – also known as ‘green fairy’ – very strong alcohol which was banned in 1914 for a century.
Macarons are mythic in Paris. If you’re a fan, you need to try macaron cookery class at Le Cordon Bleu.
Love, romance in Paris
Paris is famous for its romance and love and sometimes it’s called the City of Love and Romance. The energy of love is present everywhere if you can see it. Couples are kissing more in Paris than anywhere else. Like this photo below suggests (although, it was staged). Paris is symbolic of love because many women dream to have their engagement there. The lights, the French food and wine – all contribute to the atmosphere conducive for love and romance. And of course, the French language helps – it’s the language itself, which was once (in 2013) voted the sexiest in the world. ‘Je t’aime / oh, oui je t’aime! / moi non plus’
The property market in Paris
Parisian property is a third cheaper than central London (London has been the most popular place for international business people to invest in a property in Europe but that seems to be changing now with London’s property market falling and Paris’s one increasing) with the population of the French capital fall 2.6% in the last five years. The most popular places to buy a property (for the wealthiest buyers) are in the sixth and seventh arrondissements.
