When I travel, you can bet I have a budget. I’ll drive 10 hours (or maybe more) to my destination if it saves me money on airfare. And sleeping arrangements? Unless I think there might be a dead body stuffed in the mattress, I’ll opt for a cheap hotel if it saves me a few bucks. Such is the life of a single twenty-something, but I don’t mind it…yet!
I do have hopes and dreams that one day I won’t have to be such a penny pincher when it comes to traveling. I can see me now, lounging in first class with a cocktail in hand, soaring to some far away land (preferably a tropical island) where I will stay in a glorious hotel, fit for a queen. How fabulous!
If my dreams are your reality, this blog’s for you! Here are some of the most expensive places to travel:
Seychelles – I don’t know how to pronounce this country, but I do know it’s a country. And within this country is an island called Fregate (located in the Indian Ocean). The island is a private resort with 17 lavish villas that must be rented for a minimum of three days at a cost starting at $1,000 a day.
New York City – Ahhh, a place I can pronounce. Luxury hotels start at $730 a night and a mid-range hotel is a pretty $350 per night. While your wallet is open, head over to Bagatelle for a $1,000 ice cream sundae.
Paris – The city of romance comes with a price tag, and that price tag could read $26,000 for one night at a hotel. If you aren’t affected by sticker shock, this might be the perfect destination for you.
Oslo – Head to the capital of Norway if you want to pay $6 for a bottle of water. Can you imagine the price of a hotel? Oslo is clean and safe, the country is rich in oil, and citizens are well-off which contributes to the tourist industry charging 70 percent higher than world averages.
