The Montmartre hilly boho village in the 18th arrondissement is always a great place to check out and hang out in Paris, whether during the daytime or at night. The village has different vibes though, depending on which time of the day you visit.
The mornings are less crowded of course, still fresh from the morning flow and tourist invasions which happens slightly after 09:00+. Mid to late afternoons will be very busy already, and although it is crowded, it is a "nicely crowded" way somehow, perhaps because of the village's low-key bohemian setting and the spectacular city views. There is the feeling of space.
The evening transition is quite different though and a must to see and experience because the ambiance and lights are just amazing. Especially when you are standing on the steps of the Basilica du Sacre Coeur, you can enjoy sweeping views of Paris at your feet! And the Place du Tetre becomes lively as well.
The evening gives a touch of sophistication to the whole boho arty ambiance. I told girlfriend Pinpin that she cannot leave Paris without having step foot in Montmartre.
