If you can't get around France to check out its many varied architectural wonders, then don't worry. For years the Museum of French Monuments (which takes up one floor of this extraordinary place) has been taking mouldings of exquisite buildings since the late 19th Century when Eugène Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc (the Jean Nouvel of his time) realised that many were disappearing through negligence, development or war.
Walking through rooms of old doorways and window may not sound the most fascinating of things, but there is much to marvel at here (upper floors have recreations of gothic, vaulted ceilings that will amaze you), and modern architecture is not neglected either, with a whole floor given over to the design and mentality behind recent construction.
And because the building is set on a hill (with great views of the Eiffel Tower) you can also go down into a huge basement, then another, then another, making the museum a maze of rooms that is almost as intriguing as the exhibits themselves
At the heart of the golden triangle, the Kambodgia restaurant invites you on a gastronomic journey to Cambodia and Asia, in an elegant, contemporary setting combining sophisticated lighting and Cambodian artifacts. Dishes focus on quality and authenticity: the chef reinterprets traditional recipes using organic products (nems, rolls, grilled chicken, ginger fish, shrimp….).
