If money were no object, which destinations would you cross off your travel bucket list?
There are so many beautiful, picturesque places around the world to visit, but without a big vacation budget, it can be difficult to see them all since some destinations are more expensive than others. A lucky few are able to plan a vacation without worrying about how much it costs. Maybe you’re one of the lucky ones, or perhaps you’ve been saving up for the trip of a lifetime and are ready to start planning your dream vacation. Whatever the case, choosing the right spot for your trip requires some consideration, especially if this is your once-in-a-lifetime trip.
Here are four places to visit that are completely worth splurging on.
For many, a trip to Australia is definitely a top vacation spot. With round-trip flights costing in the thousands for two people, it is certainly one of the more extravagant trips to take, especially if you choose to stay in one of the big cities like Melbourne or Sydney.
There’s plenty to do in Australia for both urban explorers and nature lovers. If exploring the city is your idea of excitement, there’s plenty of shopping, world-class food, entertainment, and a hopping nightlife in any of the metropolitan cities. For those seeking out more nature, the Great Barrier Reef is a place to explore.
Sure, you can stay in hostels and travel cheaply to Greece, but you can also live a life of luxury while visiting! Greece is a top tourist destination for a reason: the stunningly clear turquoise waters and white sandy beaches, the amazing food, the warm hospitality from the locals, and of course the picturesque sunsets are a draw for every traveller.
With so many islands to choose from, there’s something for every person to satisfy every interest. Why not rent a villa in Mykonos, Greece and enjoy the famous bustling nightlife and experience world-class dining? Visit Santorini for a fantastic romantic getaway with your love. Stay in Athens and explore the unbelievable history the island has to offer. Whichever you choose, or even if you decide to island-hop to see as much as you can, Greece is a perfect luxury destination.
3. South Africa
Going on an African safari is high on the list of dream vacations, and with the expense of such a trip, it’s a great candidate for a trip to splurge on. Just getting to South Africa can be a big expense, depending on where in the world you’re travelling from, but the adventure of being on safari far outweighs the burden of the cost. Once you’ve finished your once-in-a-lifetime adventure, why not finish off the trip in the bustling city of Cape Town for some top-notch food and entertainment.
Just looking at a photo of Fiji will have you wanting to visit. It’s a popular destination for dream vacations because of its exquisite landscapes, and can definitely cost a pretty penny to travel to. There are a few backpacker resorts, but generally, Fiji is known to be a more expensive country to visit. If you truly have no budget, you can rent an entire private island for your stay.
