A beautiful and romantic city fit for any itinerary, Paris brims with historic associations and remains vastly influential in the realms of culture, art, fashion, food and design.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte and Musee des Arts Forains. And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at Louvre Museum, snap pictures at Pont-Neuf, get a sense of history and politics at Hotel de Ville, and don't miss a visit to Esplanade du Trocadero.

To see photos, ratings, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Paris online trip itinerary planner .

Bangkok, Thailand to Paris is an approximately 14.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. Traveling from Bangkok to Paris, you'll gain 6 hours due to the time zone difference. In January, Paris is much colder than Bangkok - with highs of 8°C and lows of 1°C. You'll have a few hours on the 16th (Thu) to wrap things up before traveling to Lyon.

Lyon is a historical city with a vibrant cultural scene as the birthplace of cinema, the silk capital of the globe, and the second biggest Renaissance city following Venice.
Step off the beaten path and head to Room Escape Games and Le Mur Des Canuts. Change things up with a short trip to La Clusaz Et Moi in La Clusaz (about 2 hours away). There's much more to do: relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, make a trip to Musee de Fourviere, admire the landmark architecture of Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere, and ride a horse along Parc de la Tete d'Or.
