Is That The Eiffel Tower Or Are You Just Pleased? To See Me.

View from Josh’s bathtub in the Shangri-La Paris.

To fall in love once is amazing. To fall in love again and taste, smell and explore every inch like it’s your first time is sublime. It’s this joy that has me returning to Paris each year, to fall in love again with the most romantic city in the world.

To love Paris is something of a cliché, to use a beautifully French word, but The Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, the Champs-Elysées… predictable as they may be, are no less impressive in their own right.

Paris makes an art of drinking, eating and even shopping. Cycling, sight-seeing, sex and romance are all the better in the French capital. Joshua Heath explains…

Printemps department store.


THE FRENCH are known for their dress sense so it’s no surprise that Paris delivers when it comes to shopping. For the big department store experience you can’t go past Printemps and Galleries Lafayette, positioned next door to each other on Boulevard Haussmann. Both stores are filled with luxury brands from high-end watches like Hubolt to fashion houses like Louis Vuitton, Hermés and Sandro. If you’re not into crowds, though, avoid.

Le Marais is not just the gay centre of Paris, it’s the heart and soul of cool, casual street fashion, home and lifestyle stores, and pop-up shops featuring up-and-coming designers. Le Marais is in the 3rd and 4th arrondissement, its narrow streets winding between the Louvre and the Bastille. Through summer, it’s awash with beautiful men from around the world, enjoying the outdoor gay bars, cafés, restaurants, and the shops that make up the area. BHV L’HOMME on rue de la Verrerie, a department store, is worth checking out.
