Chasing northern lights in Tromso

Conditions to see aurora

First time to Paris, a must-see list

Eiffel Tower is one of the most famous building and recognizable structures in the world. The tower is 324 meters and it is the tallest building in Paris. It is different sightseeing from top-down view and down-top view. You even might enjoy queueing because you can see Eiffel Tower in different angles and different time. I recommend that you can go there around 4pm. When you get to the top of tower, you can enjoy the extraordinary sunset and take a phone of sunset with the top view of whole Paris.
