8th arrondissement

The eighth arrondissement has four distinct flavours. The triangle d'or (golden triangle, which is the area between the famous Champs Elysées and the Seine), The Champs Elysées itself and it's immediate northern streets, the Monceau and St Augustin district and that of St Lazare.

The golden triangle is the most prestigious area with the famous George V hotel, the Grand and Petit Palais, and the boutiques of some of the chicest designer names. The Champs Elysées is a hive of tourism with its cafés, bars and galleries of boutiques, as are the smaller streets along its northern side.

Monceau is one of Paris' most ornate parks and the area is much more residential and calm but as you head east, toward the area around St Lazare station, it becomes slightly more 'populaire' as it leads to some of the better know Parisian department stores and the busy station.
