Agoda.com presents fantastic hotel deals for an amazing summer trip to Paris


SINGAPORE – Agoda.com, Asia’s leading hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq:PCLN), is providing great deals on hotels in Paris to help celebrate the coming end to Summer, as well as many of the fantastic trade shows, exhibitions and fairs that populate the city during this time.
 
Paris during peak summer travel time is often uncomfortably hot, but once nearer to the end of the season, it becomes an absolute pleasure to stroll around in. Musicians play on street corners, long hours are spent eating and drinking on patios, and there are festivals, fairs, and events large and small that bring in attendees from all over the world. Below Agoda.com presents a few that are worth checking out.
 
The Silhouette Festival in Parc de la Butte du Chapeau Rouge  (August 31-September 8) is an outdoor short film festival that showcases international and French short films free of charge on a giant screen during the evening. Hundreds attend, and it’s a must for any fan of film or unique cultural events. http://www.association-silhouette.com/ (French only)
 
Maison et Objet (September 6-10) is one of the world’s biggest showcases for interior design and innovation. Although closed to the general public, those in the decoration/design industry can present their business card to get a badge. http://www.maison-objet.com/en/maison-objet/
 
For those who want a bit of energy in their festivals, it's never a bad idea to attend the Paris Techno Parade (September 14), which will see more than 100 musicians, DJ’s and performers in a procession down Paris streets, mostly in the 11th, 12th and 13th districts, blasting music, dancing and enjoying the outdoor party atmosphere. http://www.technoparade.fr/ (French only)
 
For those more culturally inclined, Heritage Days (September 14-15) offers a great opportunity to visit some attractions in Paris that are usually closed, with many museums opening up free-of-charge. There are also 35 different walking/biking heritage trails, taking in some of the city’s most historic attractions. http://www.paris.fr/english/visit/highlights/journees-du-patrimoine-heritage-days/rub_8208_stand_34125_port_18969
 
If one loves French food (and who doesn’t?), then the Paris Gastronomic Festival (September 20-22) is a must. Events and demonstrations celebrating the history, creativity and flavor of French food will be held all over the city, and everyone from professional chefs to amateur kitchen warriors are welcome to get a taste of fine French cuisine. http://www.fete-gastronomie.fr/en/
 
Lovers of the arts should not miss out on the Paris Autumn Festival (September 13-January 12, 2014), a huge months-long showcase for visual and performance art, theater, dance, music and cinema from around the world. http://www.festival-automne.com/home.html
 
And last but not least is the world-famous Paris Fashion Week (September 24-October 2), where the world’s best-known designers mingle with those hoping for a break in a whirlwind of glamour, flashbulbs, celebrities and runways. Not every show is open to the public, but there are still some great events and parties to attend. http://www.modeaparis.com/en
