Where Would You Go If Money Was No Object?

The world is full of spectacular places; there are so many of them if only we had more time and more importantly, more money. Where do you think you would travel to though if money was no object? You wouldn’t have to wonder how much does a jet cost or look for deals on flights and hotels. Imagine the world really was your oyster and you could go anywhere and do anything you wanted – well within reason, but if everything was free or you simply had enough money that you didn’t need to factor it into your plans.

World Cruise

A world cruise is a pretty obvious choice, but for a good reason, who wouldn’t want to go around the world while enjoying a life of luxury. There are different options for world cruises which vary in price, length and destinations, but imagine in the one trip you could be stopping off at destinations like Singapore, Mumbai, Hong Kong, the Canary Islands, Stockholm, Olden and Geiranger in Scandinavia, St. Petersburg in the Baltic, Reykjavik in Iceland, Cape Town and Hawaii. And if money really was no object, then there are even world cruises where you could have your own personal butler who will organise everything for you for when you are onshore. 



One of the 118 islands that make up French Polynesia, Tahiti is one places that often comes up when people talk about their dream destinations. Tahiti is known for its overwater bungalows, designed in the style of traditional island houses and is a beautiful, intimate and romantic setting. Tahiti is the largest, and one of the busiest islands and the capital city, Papeete, has a number of high-end resorts, as well as restaurants, markets and shops. At the traditional Papeete Market, shoppers can pick up items scented with vanilla or made from black pearls which are both specialities of the area.


Bora Bora

Another of the French Polynesian islands, Bora Bora, is another romantic destination that many dream of going to. Bora Bora is an extinct volcano and today; it sits amidst a lagoon that glimmers in almost supernatural shades of blue, You’ll find coral reefs, white sandy beaches, colourful fish and a beautiful landscape. It’s simply paradise. 



Australia is a country which often appears on peoples’ bucket lists. People don’t tend to go for a short amount of time, but rather make it a trip of a lifetime. Australia is so huge though, that once you are there, you may as well explore and get the most out of it. From spending time in paradise in places like the Whitsunday Islands, enjoying the sunshine, surfing, hiking, checking out the outback or snorkelling or sailing, there is always something amazing you could be doing in Australia, and if money were no object and you had plenty of time too, you could travel around and do it all. If you could do it, then a trip that includes Sydney, Cairns, Ayers Rock and Adelaide would be a great mix. Sydney is a cosmopolitan city which is home to the Opera House and the Sydney Harbor Bridge; while visitors to Cairns can go snorkelling or scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef. Ayers Rock is known for the rock itself but is also a great place to explore the Aboriginal culture. Then there’s Adelaide which boasts an excellent wine region and is close to Kangaroo Island, a wildlife preserve for creatures like kangaroos and koalas. 



Again, if money was no object, you could visit lesser-known Italian towns like Siena, Bologna and Lake Como. Siena is best known for historic offerings like its 13th-century square Piazza del Campo and the Museo Civico, which houses beautiful frescos. Bologna is a culinary destination, and the glacially formed Lake Como, in the Italian Alps, is renowned for its natural beauty. Again, you could spend a decent amount of time here and visit the Amalfi Coast in southern Italy, which features pastel-coloured homes built into bluffs overlooking the Bay of Naples, and little towns like Ravello; visitors also aren’t far from the island of Capri. Travellers who like high-end fashion shouldn’t miss Milan, headquarters of big-name Italian designers like Versace and Dolce & Gabbana and when money is no object, you might as well treat yourself. 


South Africa

There’s desert, mountains, coastline, and the cultural heritage, South Africa has a lot to see. Within one day, you could go from shopping for locally-made crafts at Greenmarket Square in Cape Town to off-roading in the bush at Addo Elephant National Park looking for the big five: elephants, rhinos, lions, leopards and buffalo. Then you can cruise along the Garden Route—renowned for its whale-watching—on South Africa’s eastern coast, and if you like a bit of history, then you can take a ferry to Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 18 years, or visit the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg. English is widely spoken, and South Africa is more westernised than many other parts of Africa/ It also doesn’t require a visa to visit, it’s malaria-free, and you can’t forget that South Africa has an excellent wine region. There’s so much to see and do, again you need time not to be an object either. 



Forget that the Russian Space Agency requires you to be a billionaire in order to explore the final frontier, or that you need almost £200 million to go on a private venture around the moon with American company SpaceX, just imagine being able to go into space. The companies offering this jaunt may need to work on their luxury offerings for the journey to make it more desirable, but if you can put up with a long, boring journey all to go to space then wouldn’t this be the trip of a lifetime?
