Los Angeles is a city filled with picturesque places. We need a passport and a visa to travel to Los Angeles. It is always advised to have travel insurance handy. It can be useful to us in plethora of ways. 2
- If we fall ill while we are travelling somewhere, we can always take the help of the travel insurance to reduce the sum of our invoice.
Los Angeles is a city where people speak an easy yet complex language which is English and Spanish.
The weather in Los Angeles is as hard as jigsaw to understand as it changes momentarily
The currency used here is US Dollars although the city is quite exorbitant yet the view is quite alluring.
We can move around the city in vast buses or bicycles. Teenagers and kids probably use skateboards and skate scooters to move from place to place.
From fluffy pancakes to juicy burgers we can find everything mouth watering in the city

Splendid greetings to one and all!!
My name is Chaitree Kundra who is 9 years old and is going to talk about an eminent and the most populous city named Paris in France. The most ideal time to visit Paris is June to October. The currency of Paris is Euro.it is an expensive destination since, it is the home for high-end fashion houses. French and English are the two languages used in Paris. To commute in Paris tourist mostly prefer public transport. The specialities in food in Paris are baguttes, croissants, macarons, eclairs, French cheese, oysters, falafel, couscous.
The most eminent places to visit in Paris are Eiffel tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, Louvre Museum , Disneyland and many more.
A passport and a visa is mandatory to visit Paris; moreover, travel insurance is extremely notable.
Hereby, I conclude by adding visiting Paris is value for money.
