Host of the annual Cannes Film Festival

It hosts one of the most prestigious International film festivals in the world, but Cannes is more than a travel destination for filmophiles. Fashionistas and fun-seekers will find an exclusive city with high-end restaurants, exotic nightlife, luxury boutiques, and designer fashion shops lining La Croisette. Cannes is an amazing experience for the posh traveler, but it attracts history lovers as well, as no other town on the French Riviera has such a dramatic and mysterious past. One example? The famous Man in the Iron Mask was imprisoned on the Ile Sainte-Marguerite, half a mile off shore from the city.

I’ve photographed this nightclub for travel guides - it is the quintessential flashy Cannes nightclub, a right of passage for the stars here during the film festival and an experience if you want to soak up Cannes at its glitzy best.

Stay.com Editors' Note

During the magic of the Cannes Film Festival there is no better place to hang out than Le Baoli if you want to meet the movers and shakers.

Be sure to dress up smart if you want to get through the doors, the bouncers are not so easy to impress at Le Baoli, and make sure you arrive here early to get yourself a good table.

They offer some massive drinks at Le Baoli, which are meant to be shared between friends, so it’s definitely a good idea to turn up as a group and claim a table. One you get through the door, scope out the place and see how many famous and beautiful people you can spot.
