Paris, France

Friday - - Travel -

It would be im­pos­si­ble to talk about the most ro­man­tic des­ti­na­tions in the world without men­tion­ing Paris. Sur­prise your loved one with a cruise along the Seine (moon­lit or day­time, both equally en­chant­ing); head to the Museé Rodin to see the sculp­tor’s most fa­mous work, The Kiss, the Lou­vre to see the Mona Lisa, or sim­ply stroll along the Left Bank, soak­ing up the at­mos­phere.

Where to stay: A for­mer Napoleon III res­i­dence, Saint James Paris is the only chateau in the city, with spec­tac­u­lar gar­dens and just a short walk from the Arc de Tri­om­phe; it of­fers a spa based on gemol­ogy (us­ing the min­er­als in gems) and is a per­fect hide­away. Rooms start at around Dh2,038. See www.re­lais­chateaux.com.

Get­ting there: Fly­ing time is 7 hours 20 min­utes. Re­turn flights from Dubai di­rect to Paris from Dh2,855 on Air France. See www.air­france.ae.
