Paris Hilton plans to launch her own hotel and beach club chain.

The 30-year-old socialite - whose great-grandfather Conrad Hilton founded the world-famous Hilton hotel chain in 1925 - has been involved in a range of business adventures, including her own perfumes, footwear, and clothing lines and endorsing a nightclub chain, but is now keen to branch out into real estate.

She said: "The next step for me is to be more involved with real estate. I'd love to open my own hotel and beach clubs. I'm actually in the process right now of doing that, so I'm excited."

The blonde heiress - who split from nightclub mogul Cy Waits earlier this week after around 18 months of dating - is used to living her life in the spotlight but dreams of being able to go to her favourite theme parks without being bothered.

She told Parade.com: "The paparazzi are always there, but it's something I've gotten used to. It's something I've had to deal with for 15 years now, so I try to lead as normal life as possible. I don't like having big bodyguards around me all the time unless I'm working. I like going to the market and doing normal things.

"If I could go unnoticed for a day, I'd go to Disneyland! I'm a kid at heart so I love going to amusement parks and playing games and going on rides. I would also love to go to the beach in Maui and not have to worry about paparazzi hiding in the bushes."
