Paris 101(3)- La Vallee Shopping Village

La Vallee Village is a must place to go if you are in Paris. Things are generally cheaper compared to the other stores especially the ones on Champ de Elysee. However, if your trip includes London, then Bicester Village would be a cheaper option.

Among the stores available in La Vallee are Longchamp, DKNY, Michael Kors and Coach. For the men, there is Polo Ralph Lauren and Timberland


How to get there.

1. By Train.
I got there by train. Living near a Metro Station is the best.I went from Gare de l'est to Chatelet. Then, we switched to RER-C towards Marne-la-Vallee. The last stop is to Paris Disneyland. The second last stop is to La Vallee Shopping Centre. Once you get off the stop, look for a shuttle bus to get there. When I was there somehow people on the streets did not know of a shuttle bus that passes by regularly.

So we got there on foot. As you exit the train station, turn right and walk towards a shopping mall. Walk  right through the shopping mall, pass the centre court and straight up. At the end, exit to the right and you will see the signage.

This cost me Euro5,40 one way.

Please check on the routes of the trains. Every train that heads to Marne-La-Vallee does not necessarily stop at every stop. Please look at the board at the platform. Destinations where the train will stop will have a light next to it's name. Then once in the train, reconfirm the stops on the map, (station names with lights on are the places where the train will stop)

2. By shuttle bus.

Below is the time table of the shuttle bus. If you have kids, or travelling with old people or someone who just refuses to learn basic French, this bus will definitely get you there without losing your patience or temper.

Please spend time to visit this place if you are in Paris for shopping. As for tax returns, London gives you a better return while shopping. After spending more than 30 Pounds you can already claim for tax returns. In Paris, you have to spend more than 130 Euros to be able to claim tax.

Hope this helps your plan!
