Single woman travel to paris

I traveling for business at the end of the month and taking an unanticipated 3 days in Paris before getting to my final destination. This will be my first time in Paris and I need to book my hotel. I'm certain this question of where to stay is posed often, but could use some direction as I am low on planning time and Paris is so big I've not been able to give proper time to research. The perfect stay for me would include having a yoga studio near by with early am classes. I don't know if this is possible but would be ideal.

Solo in Paris: Best Things to do in Paris on your Own!

I would like some tips on traveling alone in Paris. Single women can safely travel around Paris alone. We just have to keep our eyes open! Dress conservatively.

Some but not all people believe American women are "easy. Short sleeves don't seem to be very popular right now. Let the nice Frenchmen buy you drinks in pubs :- As always, make sure they don't add anything to it. French men tend to be more "physical. By "physical," I mean, "Jacques" might place his hand on your shoulder for a few seconds. However, cultural differences are no excuse for harassment. If you ever feel uncomfortable, let him know.

If a stern "non" does not do the trick, just walk away. If that doesn't work, shout "laissez-moi tranquille! And if that doesn't work, kick him as hard as you can.

Thankfully, I have only had to go that far once. A teenage boy in Paris got prominent bruises on his arm and leg after causing me trouble. I spent 48 days in France ; he was the only rude French person I ever encountered. Most French men are wonderful. This is true when you travel to a lot of countries esp.

It is not the clothing, it is the attitude. I also have never heard that American women were "easy" Yes French men are more obvious than American men considering they are not yet dealing with the harassement issues.

It is a comforting feeling to be appreciated esp. If you are averagely street smart you should not worry about stuff like that. Rather, where can I go and have a pleasant meal alone? Like I posted before, all the answers are in this forum. La photographe is right, there have been many previous threads discussing women travelling to Paris on their own. I am too old to have strange Frenchmen offering to buy me a drink but I don't think I would accept such an offer if it were made and I hate to think you would have to resort to knees and fists to beat someone off in any cafe you went to for a drink.

I just got back from my first trip to Paris and went solo. I am a 57 year old woman. I found Paris to be an extrememly safe city and very managable city to explore on one's own. I recently left a long trip report if you are interested in reading it I did have a man offer to buy me a drink one night and also gave me his cell phone number He was not overly aggressive and I was not in any way dressed "to kill" Be aware of your bag and your surroundings.

I encountered the little India woman with her sign With that said I feel if you have the adventurous spirit within you to do this trip alone, then you will be fine. Paris is the BEST city in the world and to experience it alone is a memory and a treasured gift I will always be grateful for having given myself. I invite you to PM me anytime, you have any little concerns or questions you are not quite comfortable asking here.

I spent 30 days traveling alone in Paris Sept-Oct and last year I was there for 9 days, traveling alone. I walked and used the Metro system extensively. I have never felt safer. I, of course, keep my eyes open and am aware of my surroundings. People eat dinner much later in Paris than in the US and because of that and the nightlife, the Metro system is full of people late into the evening. Even at pm it felt like noon or rush hour because so many people were around.

That made it feel really safe. I didn't have one problematic event on either of my trips, except the time on the steps down in the Metro that I discovered a guys hand in my friend's backpack.

I yelled "hey", he laughed and ran away. He wasn't dangerous--just gutsy! Definitely keep an awareness about your belongings and carry them in front of you. I walked in areas which were unfamiliar, just wandering the streets to see what I would find, knowing that within a few blocks in any direction I would come to a Metro station--which I always did.

I didn't want to go to Paris with people who hadn't been there before because I have seen most of the major sites and want to visit the City at a deeper level. Therefore, I went alone and didn't regret it for a minute. I am a female who is often out alone in Paris :. This is the one thing I do NOT do. A proper French guy requires a proper introduction. I buy my own drinks, thank you very much, but I do let them flirt to their heart's content:.

Men are men. If you don't smile at the guys and invite them into your world, you are safe: Stay out of the dangerous suburbs and after two am, take a cab, but other than that, you are good to go. I'm a yr-old female and just returned from a two-week trip to Paris. I walked everywhere, even in the evening, but was usually back at the hotel by PM at the latest, just from sheer exhaustion.

I only got one comment the entire time I was there, and this from another tourist. Eating alone is NOT an issue. There are lots of people eating alone too, even in slightly fancier places. Bring a book or a magazine if you feel a little conscious. After a while I learned to people-watch, just like that other single-diners. As the previous poster said, don't smile or encourage anyone and you won't be harassed.

Waiters are usually very flirtatious, but that's part of their nature, and they remain very polite. Keep to places you know there'll be a lot of people, just like in any big city. Keep your handbag close. I bought one of those pouch things that attached to the straps of my camisole and so didn't have a neck strap peeking out and was not obvious at all found at a walgreens and stuffed it with an extra credit card, photocopies of my passport info pages and other credit cards. Never had a problem though.

Otherwise, enjoy yourself to the fullest! I found that the best part about traveling alone to Paris was being able to take time with the places I loved, taking long long walks along the Seine, and becoming a "regular" at my corner cafe.

Solo Travel Paris: Amazing Things to do Alone in Paris

And how other perfectionist travelers can avoid doing the same. One year ago, I had just gotten back from my first real solo trip. And I sort of hated it.

I can't remember the exact number of times I've been to Paris, but it's something like 8 or 9 times. Paris is temptingly easy for me being based in London - it's less than 3 hours by train , and I've been smitten ever since my first trip as an awkward 15 year old. If you're thinking 'but Paris is far too romantic for a solo traveller? In fact I've only ever been to Paris once with a guy, twice with girlfriends, and the rest of the time I was on my own.
