Unlike some of the areas in Paris this one is incredibly clean. It is what struck me the most, as well as the very business orientated crowd that fills the streets here. Not much to photograph as a tourist other than the Opera, but there are some nice Japanese and Korean restaurants close by.

You may want to take hotels close tot this area, as there's local shopping, a lot of theatres and good food around. and the street is open in the night as well serving drinks and food.

Words cannot describe what this opera house looks like. You have to visit it if you're in Paris take two hours and go through the entire facility it is spectacular. The metro has a stop so it is easy to get to. Wonderful food on the outside in a little café.
