Budget – what’s that? If you have worked your arse off all through the year, its time to reward yourself with an experience of a lifetime. Here are some of the super coveted and expensive destinations around the globe.
1. British Virgin Islands
Who knows how to live it up better than the Bransons? Well, if you have pockets deep enough you can actually see what it feels like to live their life, by renting out their villa set on a private island. The Branson Estate on Moskito Island promises you 125 acres of stunning paradise surrounded by turquoise Caribbean waters, but be prepared to shell out over USD 2000 per person per night to get a slice of this heaven.
2. Bora Bora
Remember those wallpapers with over-the-water villas surrounded by clear blue waters on all sides? Yes that can be your very own selfie frame at this picturesque island in French Polynesia. Flocked by celebrities and business giants, Bora Bora is reserved for only the elite. A night at anywhere in Bora Bora can easily set you back by USD 800, not to mention the high airfare to reach here from anywhere in the world. That’s one expensive selfie!
Dream of para-para-paradise? It’s called the Artic. Best experienced at the Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort where you can rent your own glass igloo and gaze at the northern lights. If getting a glimpse of the Aurora without freezing to death is on your bucket list, you can do so in your very own sauna. All you need is USD 500 (and of course, Love!).
You know how there are those super cool hotels in Japan where you get a personal pod instead of a room? Well, that’s not futuristic, it’s because of the bleed-out-of-your-nose real estate prices in Tokyo. If you’re looking for luxury, it won’t come cheap in this land of the rising sun. Night in a first-class hotel will set you back by USD 400-500 and even a week’s travel pass in Tokyo will cost you a minimum of USD 270. Deep pockets, moshi moshi to you!
What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas! So does the rest of your bank balance. If the flight prices don’t kill your great American dream, the glam-studded luxuries of Las Vegas surely will. Crack open a bubbly at a state-of-the-art Penthouse suite at the Bellagio, followed by a night of expensive cocktails and caviar at rooftop bars and rolling some dice at the casinos as you make arrangements to sell your right kidney. Well if you are own-private-jet kinda rich, you can even make the fountains at the Bellagio dance to your favourite tune by paying a mere USD 2,50,000.
