    Wow, price drop! It was US$100 per head 8 years ago when I was there. Hopefully it is not the same cancan girls from 8 years ago.

    Hi Reznor,

    60 Euros?

    Including dinner? So what time did the show start?

    Did you get the ticket there? Need to book in advance?

    We actually got the price of 82 Euros from the web, always thought that this is not the "local" price.

    Thanks to Reznor and Astin who have replied.

    Cheers!

    ajneo, this is what happened when I went there 8 years ago, not sure it is still the same now.

    As I walked towards the Moulin Rouge area, I saw many "theatres", one of them was called Moulin Rouge, others looked similar but with diff names. There were many big size guys (bouncers?) standing outside the theatres shouting "tickets tickets" in English/French/German/whatever. You could just walk over and buy the tickets, I guess. The ticket was supposed to include 1 show and 1 dinner, maybe served with French wine as well. In the end I did not buy the tickets because I did not like what I saw outside. Its not that glamorous.

    IMO, the cancan show is just some pretty girls dress up and dance and sing for about 1 hour, it is not really worth the price, unless you are that "die-die must try type".

    BTW, the area around Moulin Rouge is not very safe, in Singapore standard, you would accidentally walk into some brothols/drug gangs, particularly near the train station. Be careful and use your common sense. Walk away quietly if you sense something wrong.

    Another suggestion, save your $ and go over to London and watch a show in the West End, it is much more worth it. If you are stuck in Paris, use the same $ to buy a train ticket to the small towns along Loire Valley, there are many beautiful castles/museums there. Many photo opportunities. Ask the local French.

    No way will it be 60 Euros including the dinner. It's a minimum 82 Euros *just* to watch the cabaret, I believe with drinks (a half bottle?) included. Throw in a dinner and you're paying a minimum of 130 Euros. Si tu parle francais tu peux voir les prix à leur website ici .

    I wouldn't spend the money just so for the privilege of saying "I went to Moulin Rouge". However, Montmartre, where the building is, is a fantastically quaint part of Paris (if yes a bit seedy but then what is Moulin Rouge if not for a soft-porn show?)... I'd rather sit on the steps de la Basilique du Sacre Coeur and mingle with the crowd than waste 82 Euros (let alone 160) on porn with food.

    Thanks discolite

    I think what you said really convinced me that the money can be better spent somewhere else.

    considering we are going to be on a budget trip, I better do something else with the money

    How abt Euro Disney?

    I heard it's the worst Disney in the world, but ok if I have not been there before.

    I appreciate all your help. Trying to stretch my dollar.

    Hey I had a ball at EuroDisney... it's terrible as far as such theme parks go, because the rides are really lame, but I can honestly say I never stopped smiling once I was in there. Just have to lose all your inhibitions... find that inner child...

    Also pretty funny seeing everything en francais, like Star Wars (La Guerre des Etoiles?) - imagine C3PO yammering on in French - It's a Small World After All (C'est Vraiment un Petit Monde?) or Honey I Shrunk The Kids (Ma Cherie, J'ai Retreci Les Enfants?!)...

    It's actually just as expensive going there as getting in cos of the out-of-town train ride required, so just hop over the train gates or go through the gate for children in carriages for a free ride It's what the locals do, so when in France...

    Hey, for the price of one Moulin Rouge ticket you can go to both EuroDisney and Parc Asterix!

    Damn now I really wish I was there now...

    il ne faut pas parler bon français là. mais, si tu parles un peu français, tu vas bien.

    la plupart de vendeurs parle anglais dans Paris. mais les gens ne parle anglais.

    Non, comme kristlbel a deja dit, c'est pas necessaire. En effet, quand on parle le francais etrange et mauvais, les gens vous demanderont souvent a utiliser anglais au lieu de cela... pour la sante de leurs oreilles
