Paris at Dusk... For many travelers Paris Disneyland has become the main entertainment center of the capital of France. Visiting this place will be interesting for everyone. This is a large-scale park, on the territory of which you will find hundreds of attractions, cafes, shops and parks. On the territory of Disneyland are opened several hotels, so visitors are welcome to stay in this fantastic town for several days. Fans of water sports should move their feet to another park as Aquaboulevard de Paris Water Park will fit their taste perfectly. This park resembles a tropical island with lots of waterfalls, geysers and water slides. There are also several European cuisine restaurants in Aquaboulevard de Paris. Without a doubt, this is a great place where visitors can rest comfortably all day long and enjoy happy and "sunny" atmosphere that reigns here.

Most curious travelers will be interested in visiting the park called Futuroscope. During an excursion guests of the park can learn everything about the achievements in the field of visual technologies and watch movies that look completely different on the screens of Futuroscope. When it comes to night entertainments of Paris, we simply cannot fail to mention Moulin Rouge, as well as numerous nightclubs. Fans of electronic music will surely like club Rex, which is distinguished by its superb technical equipment and excellent-planned entertainment. Theme parties are organized here several times a week. On these parties guests can listen to music of various directions and enjoy colorful dance show.
Nightclub La Chapelle des Lombards also offers to its guests to listen to the music of most progressive trends. The club often hosts salsa parties, on which experienced dancers offer salsa lessons for beginners. Tango fans will surely enjoy the special party, which usually takes place on Saturdays. A great selection of cocktails at the club’s local bar will become a nice addition to your wonderful rest in this amazing club. The location of Le Batofar club is quite unusual – the club is made in a beautiful lighthouse ship painted in bright red color. The ship's engine room has been turned into a spacious dance floor, so dancing does not stop here until early in the morning. The captain’s bridge is the location of tables, where guests of the club can enjoy panoramic views of the night city and try special signature cocktails. Copyright
