Two years ago when I visited Paris, the most happening Christmas market was in Champs Elysées. This year for some reasons, it was emptied and there was not a single booth was there to sell the red and green decorations. Where did it go? It all went to La Défense. Even though it was raining, there were a lot of people (mostly tourists) visiting the market. The cold wind was a real challenge but that did not stop me from going through all the booths there.
To reach this Christmas Market, you need to take the metro train going to La Défense – Grand Arche (line 1 – yellow). One way ticket is 1.79 Euro.
There were a wide range of Christmas trees and home decoration items being sold there. The prices varied from as low as 1 Euro to 50 Euro for one item of decoration, depending on the size and whether it was mass-produced or handmade. Below are some of the things that caught my eyes.
My visit to La Défense Christmas Market was quite pleasant. The rain did not stop me and others from visiting. I wish next year I could visit Christmas markets in other cities in Europe.
Merry Christmas to all my blog readers! May your days be merry and bright 🙂
