Arrondissement 9 and its contradictions

Arrondissement 9 is complex because of its contradictions.

In its south, you walk in boulevards that very elegant and prestigious. In Pigalle, on the north of the ninth arrondissement, you go in the red lights area.

Nowadays, the red light district is way more popular and crowded. That, because of cafès and boutiques of young stylists.

Le Bon George and Le Compagnie du Cafè are some of the most recommended cafès. When you go to arrondissement IX you will see lots of traditional and typical French places to go.arrondissement 9
