We love exploring the cities we call home through your eyes; in this Insta-round up, we discover the dreamy Parisian hangout, Canal Saint-Martin.

Stretching alongside the Quai de Valmy, this 19th century waterway forms the heart of Paris’ 10th arrondissement. Surrounded by cute bars and low-key restaurants, it has become the ideal destination for chilling with friends on sunny days and warm evenings.
 
Amélie-vibes abound in this charming area, where the young and young-at-heart meet for picnics (or just a bottle of wine or two). Hang your legs over the side of the canal or grab a deck chair and people-watch while soaking up the atmosphere.

At the northern end of the canal you’ll find Point Ephemere, a riverside hub for live music and exhibitions. This creative energy has infused the entire area, making it a popular spot for street art.

In the first of our Instagramable Paris series we reveal the bohemian beauty of Canal Saint-Martin: the picturesque waterway, the revellers who line its banks on sunny days and the street art that makes this area pop.

Here are our favourite pics of Canal Saint-Martin in Paris. Make sure you tag us @generatorhostels and #GenLove to be included in our next article!
