Flight time from Dubai: seven hours
Paris is well known as one of the most romantic places on earth. Wander the charming streets and meet the quirky locals, indulge in the delicious food and take in all the sights of the French capital. Take a moonlit cruise down the Seine, head to the Museé Rodin to see the sculptor’s famous work The Kiss, and choose from the many lavish hotels. The honeymoon suite at the intimate Hôtel Duc de Saint Simon, with resplendent four-poster bed, is one winner. It’s a gem of a place with adorably classic decor and antique furnishings. For more modern tastes, head to the edgy Five Hotel in the Latin Quarter, where your bed will lie under a starry ceiling. If the city of love doesn’t put you in the mood, the grape certainly will.
