Here is a list of the Top 5 Most Expensive Hotel Rooms in the World. I don't like categorizing or putting labels on people but for this article I'm going too. I am not going to say all of us but the vast majority of us wish we were an actor, singer, professional athlete or CEO of a Fortune 500 company. The one thing at the end of those wishes; the thing that drives us to be in the public eye or have power is MONEY. We work hard every day to survive and indulge in life's little pleasures, whether it's driving a nice car, wearing "name-brand" clothes or eating at fancy restaurants but sometimes we wish we had more; and that's the reason we are so intrigued with "WEALTHY PEOPLE".
We hear in the news or read online that "so & so; so" celebrity spent $200,000 at the bar during his birthday party and we always say, "I don't care how much money I have, I would never do that", you are probably right. I'm going to build you up right now then burst your bubble so please don't hold against me. The reality is, we can eat where they eat and most importantly, we can vacation where they vacation. The top celebrity travel destinations are Hawaii, France, Cabo San Lucas and the Caribbean; there are affordable vacation deals to all of these places. Here's where I burst your bubble….. But can we stay where they stay or would we if we could?? It goes back to the $200,000 bar tab. Here is a list of the most expensive hotel rooms in the world; you might want to brace yourself for some of these prices. Would you if you could? These are in US DOLLARS.
