Travelling alone in Paris

Travelling alone in Paris

May 22nd, 2021

A luxury for some, a passion for some or a sudden urge for others, travelling alone in Paris is becoming more and more common. Perhaps a solo getaway is the right compromise for you? It’s a more flexible way to travel than if you were travelling with your partner or family. You are the only one to decide what you want to do; no compromises, no concessions. The Cadet Residence tells you more about this progressive trend in 2021.

Experience special moments when travelling alone in Paris

According to a study conducted by Booking, solo travellers have increased by 164% from just 14% post global pandemic. There is a strong need for a post-conflict break: tourists are turning to famous destinations like Paris on their own and going to discover other people!

Experiencing unique moments

When you travel alone, you don’t have to ask anyone else’s opinion to go out, visit, or go to a place you particularly like. The destination of Paris offers the possibility to meet people, other travellers and to exchange with them if you wish.
With the reopening of shops, restaurants and cultural venues, you can go wherever you want to have your best experience. You can do things you will never forget in the post-confinement period!

Eat where you want

In Paris, there is no shortage of restaurants, you can eat all the food in the world or go local. When you’re on your own, you can go and eat wherever you want: a Mexican burrito, sushi in the best Japanese restaurant in town, a traditional French dish in a brasserie on the Grands Boulevards, an Asian meal in the 13th arrondissement, an Indian dish or a gastronomic meal in the 16th… You’re on your own to decide on the menu and only listen to your own desires of the moment. A luxury!

Go to the cinema and the theatre whenever you want

The choice of film or play is in your hands when you travel alone. You can see the latest action film at the Grand Rex, or the latest romantic film in a local cinema. Similarly, you can choose the play you want, in the genre of your choice. No concessions to be made with your partner or family. The timetable is also free: are you a morning person? No problem! Or late at night? No problem! You can even meet people and other people on your own.

Shop to your heart’s content

If you’re a shopping addict, Paris is the city for you! And if you’re on your own, then do yourself a favour. Browse the Rue Rivoli and its boutiques, stroll the Champs-Élysées several times, treat yourself to a luxury jewellery store, or browse the large shopping centres within the city, such as Châtelet and the Forum des Halles. Wander the streets of the Marais to find designer clothes shops and go on a thrift store adventure in the same area, in Paris 5.

Stay wherever you want to

Have you been dreaming of going solo in Paris and staying in your favourite neighbourhood? Now is the time to do it and book. The 9th arrondissement is central, perfect for visiting all of Paris as it should be. The district gathers the Paris Opera, the Grands Boulevards with the Grévin museum, the rue des Martyrs and its shops and the Cadet residence, a perfect place to stay in Paris when you travel alone. You can also opt for livelier areas if you like to party or quieter areas to relax in the evening. Again, the choice is yours alone!

Travelling alone to Paris to recharge your batteries

Wanting to travel alone comes from a desire to recharge your batteries more easily, far from your daily routine and forced telecommuting. It’s normal to want to get some fresh air, relax and see if the grass is greener elsewhere. For a moment, take advantage of the capital, its quiet and lively streets, its typical districts to recharge your batteries.
