The French are proud of their sophisticated way of cooking. Food and alcohol definitely play important roles within the French society. Bistrot le 15 restaurant and Le Derby restaurant- nestled in the heart of St. Denis have become town favourites.
French people often consider the way a person eats reflects their French heritage, region of birth, social status, and health. This city has an abundance of places that could tease your tastes buds.
When in St Denis try to be as friendly as possible, always say Bonjour monsieur/madame when entering any place, au revoir when leaving, and don’t forget to respect the elderly with vous instead of tu. And it’s important to learn a few French words before you leave as Parisians prefer to speak in their native language.
Paris & Saint-Denis are usually safe, with low-rates of crime, however some areas are best avoided at late night or early morning particularly when traveling alone. Some of these areas are; Châtelet-Les Halles, Gare du Nord, Barbès Rochechouart, and Strasbourg St-Denis, where violent incidents and robberies have been reported on the RER, specially RER B, so it is best to find alternative means of transport such as buses or taxis. Also pickpocketing is the most common crime, beware when standing in long queues surrounding major attractions, while using public transports, or while shopping in major department stores. Always keep your belongings with you, your handbag or backpack close to you & carefully sealed, don’t carry money more than you need, and keep your passport at a safe pouch or leave it at the hotel. In case of medical emergencies dial 15, while for any emergencies dial 18.
