Your weekly roundup of the hottest travel links across the net:

1. Paris is one of those cities that’s so full of museums, galleries, shops and attractions that you could spend a lifetime there and still not see everything the city has to offer. Sometimes, though, the real charm of a place is not in its touristic offerings, but in it’s atmosphere – that’s why I enjoyed this article about the joys of slowly savoring Paris. Champagne breakfasts, pastries and people watching – what’s not to love?

2. Want to have a sticky beak at a few places you’ll probably never set foot in? This article gives you a glimpse into some of the most expensive hotels in the world, where prices range from $15,000 to $50,000 per night. What does that kind of money buy you? How about massage tables, bulletproof windows, a private cinema, a butler, a pianist and a rotating bed?

3. So many people travel with laptops these days, but not everyone stops to consider the little “extras” they might need to pack to stay wired to the rest of the world. If you’re planning on taking a computer on your next trip, and especially if you expect to be working from the road, check out this list of essential travel items for your laptop bag.
