Unless you’re a master penny pincher and coupon clipper, there can be no denying that taking a vacation is always an expensive proposition. You’ve got the cost of taking time away from work, the cost of travel, the cost of your accommodations, and the cost of whatever you choose to spend once you get wherever you’re going.
But, for as expensive as an ordinary vacation can be, there are some places that you can head to that are far more expensive than the average traveler can imagine. We’re talking, of course, about vacations to some of the world’s most far-flung destinations and to some of the world’s most expensive (and unique) hotels and resorts.
