There are dozens of world-renowned landmarks and activities in Paris that draw millions of tourists from everywhere in the world. More info on some of our favourites can be found online:

Here are a few personalized tips and tricks from EIA employees:

  • If you’re going to the Louvre, look around for a side entrance. There are many, and they’re usually not as busy as the main entrance
  • Watch the sunset from atop the Arc de Triomphe and see the Eiffel Tower glisten at dusk
  • Each neighbourhood (or arrondissement) has its own personality. Spend at least a day wandering around the city and getting to know it

Sprawling over 350 acres and containing over 4,000 trees, a lake, a meadow and ornamental flower gardens, Hyde Park is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of London. Visitors can explore the park on foot or even rent a bike for as little as £2.

As a prominent symbol of the United Kingdom, Elizabeth Tower, home to the iconic Big Ben, is a must see in London. After you grab your selfie in front of this icon, take a seven minute walk to the London Eye. With 360 views of London, you can plot your next adventure as you tower over the city. Or, head to Piccadilly Circus to take in the world famous lights and signs in the vibrant hub of London’s West End.


15 restaurants in Copenhagen have at least one Michelin star, making this city one of the top foodie destinations in Europe. Copenhagen’s top-ranked restaurant, Geranium, holds three stars in Guide Michelin Nordic Cities 2017. It was also ranked the 19th best restaurant in the world in 2017, and is run by the world's best chef in 2011 Rasmus Kofoed.

Just north of Copenhagen you will find Dyrehavsbakken – abbreviated to Bakken – the world's oldest amusement park. The 431-year-old amusement park is located in the lush woodlands of Jægersborg Dyrehave, where you find yourself surrounded by 400-year-old trees and 2,000 free range deer. It’s the perfect spot for a relaxing morning carriage ride before visiting Bakken.
