In Paris, everything is optimized for smartphones users. However, when we talk about Smartphone applications, we also need to talk about Wi-Fi. Obviously, it is harder to find … For those who are lucky enough to have access, no problem. For the others, here is the list of everything that will be complicated for you to do – far be it from us to rub salt in the wound!
1. Find your way – because all roads don’t lead to the Eiffel Tower …
Paper road maps are surely old school and gives us a little adventurer side. But we all know that it is not very convenient. Indeed, it takes space in the subway and the worst part is that everyone knows when you are lost. To become an undercover tourist – and not getting lost in the city – the GPS is still your best friend.
2. Don’t get lost in the Parisian metro
Are you ready to spend hours to read subway maps, to find the right bus route and stops location? No? So you need to find quickly a Wi-Fi access to download those critical applications in the capital!
3. Get around friendly
Bus and subway are too complicated for you? Unfortunately, with no vehicle and no Wifi, you will not have much more choice… For those lucky enough to have internet access, whew you are saved! You can order an Uber and peacefully return to your hotel.
4. Find out where are the nearest toilet
No Cafes around and you need to go to the toilets? You will need to be patient and run into a Mc Donald. Otherwise, if you have a Wifi access you can try the app “ Le Trèfle”.
5. Drink a coffee or a beer at a reasonable price
Coffee prices tend to double when we approach the capital centre. Therefore you have two options: either give up and agree to pay 4,5€ for a coffee, or have the wifi and find the best corners of Paris.
6. Book a restaurant
You don’t like any restaurants of your street, you want something exotic or something typically French and unfortunately you are a vegetarian and you don’t eat gluten? Luckily with the Wifi you can download one of the following apps and reserve at the best prices the restaurants that you want.
7. Find an accomodation at the last minute
No place to stay for the night and no Wifi? This looks complicated: are you ready to spend the day calling all the hotels on the yellow pages? (yes, it still exists)
For the others, you can download one of these applications and book an hotel or a room at the best prices within a few minute.
8. Eating sushis on the Louvre parking.
It is well known; artworks whet the appetite.
Fortunately, for those who have wifi, you can be delivered anytime, anywhere and anything you want.
10. Negotiate prices of souvenir Eiffel Tower
Let’s fight prejudices, being a tourist doesn’t mean necessarily to be an easy target for vendors. The tourist also has the right to negotiate. When he knows the value of euro, it is better. So for those who don’t, here is a small application that can help you.
14. Send live pictures to your friends abroad
Postcards are seemed to be vintage and even if it comes back into fashion you always must find them, have a pen, write, go to the Post office … In short, what is the best way to instantly send memories pictures to your family?
15. Know all cultural events
Museum are great, but after a while we need something more real. How to find the best events around you?
