Itinerary request-Paris & Switzerland from London in 4 nights

Hi,
I am currently based in London.
I want to travel to Paris and Switzerland during 13-16 feb, 2014.
Could u please suggest some suitable itinerary so that we can cover best places of these two countries in this time frame.

Hotel budget-100-130 gbp per night.
Night bus travel preferred.

Please help.

Thanks,
Debojit

With 4 nights, I'd suggest that you just stick to Paris. Take the Eurostar from London. Loads of things to see and do in Paris for 4 days. The beauty of Switzerland is its mountains, which will be covered in skiers. Unless you are planning a ski trip (in which case you should spend all 4 nights in Switzerland), you should spend your 4 nights in Pais.

Thanks for your suggestion.
But u know its Schengen visa that may be for very less days, that's why I'd like to cover both in same trip.
Can I complete by 5 days?

You simply don't have enough time to travel to Switzerland via Paris and back by bus in 3 or 4 days. Stick to just Paris.

I dont see how you would have time to see both in 4 days. You are not considering the travel time between the two. You would spend more time getting to and from places than actually seeing them. Pick 1 and actually see and enjoy it.

Go to Paris. Not only do you not have enough time for both, you may not have the budget for Switzerland. Ski season is very expensive there.

Thanks all of you for your valuable inputs. Yes I also think that this will be too hectic.

In case I go only for Paris kindly suggest me an appropriate itinerary or things to do and see there.

Also suggest things do see in case I go for Switzerland alone for 4-5 days.

I'll be travelling with my family( wife n a 3 yr old boy).
Thanks ahead
