Paris, France (PRWEB) January 12, 2009
If you've ever wanted to visit Paris, you may want to heed the immortal song by Charlie Parker: "Now's the time."
A variety of forces are coming together to create one of the most deeply discounted periods in the recent history of the Paris market.
- Shopping, Airfare, and Most of All … Accommodations
The post-Holiday season (January - March) is, generally speaking, a time when prices fall. But with the recent global downturn, prices are falling spectacularly, with sales in Paris currently as deep as 80% off regular retail. Which means clothing, art, food and more can be found at unbelievable reductions.
Take this newly found "shopping power" and add the seasonal decrease in airfare, and visiting the fabled "City of Lights" is a more attractive and affordable proposition before.
