I’m a huge fan of French label Maison Kitsune, so never mind the jet lag, I had to rush to the brand’s cafe right after landing in Paris. Not only is it located within the beautiful Jardin du Palais Royal park, the outdoor cafe has (photogenic) logos on its tables, cups and napkins, and the cutest fox-shaped cookies too. A must-visit for a snack (and snap!). Oh, and you can also pick up Maison Kitsune’s tees and caps here.


While you’re here to shop at Celine and Loewe, you can also take some snaps of the Eiffel Tower! You’ll get the best pictures at sunset.

On my first visit to the theme park, I learnt that if I want Disney merchandise, I don’t have to get a ticket to shop up a storm (don’t judge me, but yes, I’m a hopeless Disney fan). Just outside the park are two official souvenir stores that sell exclusive-to-Paris items like pins and balloons.

If you need your Asian food fix, you can’t go wrong with this Thai restaurant. The food is great (we had a four-course set meal called Le Menu Royal, which costs 52 euros or S$80 a person), and the table settings guarantee awesome flat lay-style Instagram photos too.
