You could travel exclusively to Italy for the rest of your life and you will never be bored. Italy is a multi-faceted country that is home to picturesque coastal regions, a vibrant art scene, and charming culture.
You can choose to slow down in the Tuscan hills or set off on daily excursions to connect with locals and immerse yourself in the captivating charm of Italian life. You can choose to unpack and experience the perfect mix of people and places that Italy has to offer.
How about taking a trip to Venice for its unique setting, glorious churches, and luxury hotels? Rome and Florence, for their iconic and magnificent Michelangelos and da Vincis? Milan, for its Armanis, Pradas, and Versaces? And Sicily or Naples, for a captivating experience that is more than just good pizza?
Whether you have a different idea of an Italian holiday like strolling with a gelato in hand, shopping in boutique stores, or just lazing along the shores of Lake Como, Italy has it all. Who wouldn’t love the food, the wine, and the charming culture it has to offer?
Paris is nothing but a unique capital of culture, fashion, art, gastronomy, and of course the capital of France. A simply stunning city – whatever the weather, classic, and timeless.
Using the Seine as a compass, luxury travelers can stroll along the river from the Eiffel Tower, through the Champs-Elysees and Tuileries Gardens until they reach the Arc de Triomphe and the Louvre, where the world’s most famous painting of Mona Lisa can be found.
For the best sunset views, Monmarte comes alive with buskers playing music and if you are up for a gourmet experience, you can actually find it there. Wining and dining are unmatched in Paris, not to mention the city’s world-class chefs and Michelin-star restaurants.
Paris is truly one of the most welcoming luxury destinations and a romantic spot that is incomparable. It begs to be explored hand-in-hand, from its historic boulevards to its artsy enclave. But one thing has remained unchanged – the better you dress in the city, the more Parisian you will feel. And you would definitely want that.
Reflect and take a deeper look at spiritual life in Tibet and travel through its heart, touring in a loop from Lhasa, along the shores of Yamdrok Tso Lake, through rolling foothills, to Gyantse, Shigatse, and back. With every unique stop and amazing adventure, there is a new facet of Tibetan life to discover and explore.
At Tibet, luxury travelers can witness monks debating Tibetan Buddhist philosophy in the open courtyard of Sera Monastery; they can also meditate in a hermit cave, which is known to be one of the earliest known meditation sites, and get an up close-and-personal perspective of Tibetan culture and modern-day life through the eyes of a local farmer with local home visitation.

New York City, one of the best luxury destinations, may be faced-paced but you’ll for a sure bounce to the beat of its drum.
Finest New York
New York is the cultural capital and business hub of the U.S., which is known for its exuberant energy and contagious local pride.
For those who are looking for finer things in life, New York City holds an undeniable allure. Luxury travelers can experience both the grand and the intimate, the perks of exclusivity and personalized attention, and delight in historic hotels, Michelin-rated restaurants, and flagship retailers.
Luxury travelers can explore the city’s only-in-New-York neighborhoods, and Manhattan’s famous backyard, Central Park, by day and visit the only-in-New-York restaurants like Grand Central Station’s Michael Jordan The Steak House and lively scene restaurants like Kingside in the Viceroy New York hotel at night.
Big Ben, one of the most recognizable London landmarks.
As they say, London is the cradle of the world’s English-speaking civilization, which is agreeably familiar to Americans but richer in tradition, with better cabbies, and an accent we can’t help but love.
This regal metropolis entices luxury travelers with unparalleled theater and a thriving lifestyle scene.
Luxury travelers are well looked after whether they choose among different hotel types like a distinguished grand hotel, a glamorous, celebrity-magnet hotel, or a happening hotel in a trendy, artistic neighborhood.
As many travel experts say, rich culture and tradition coexist with tourism comforts in Thailand, giving luxury travelers an authentic yet inviting travel experience. No wonder this breathtakingly beautiful nation has become one of the superstars of Southeast Asian tourism.
Thailand is known for its excellent service and hospitality, spa culture, and cuisine that are high arts throughout the country. Plus, getting around the said country is easy.
Thailand’s amazing yet exotic capital, Bangkok, is within an easy range of tropical beach magnets like the popular island of Koh Samui.
The Private Caribbean
Luxury travelers claim their own, upper-crust Caribbean. They love exclusive (and very expensive) islands with distinct personalities, clientele, and even languages.
French-speaking St. Barth’s attracts the international fashion crowd, many of them renting private villas while English-heritage Mustique lures royals and rock stars (and paparazzi).
Affluent families and couples are drawn to Dutch and French St. Martin/Sint Maarten’s active resorts like Sonesta Great Bay and to Nevis. Meanwhile, Saint Lucia’s fab hotels and chocolate tourism go hand in hand. In the Caribbean, your vacation becomes a fantasy private getaway.
Relaxing French Polynesia
French Polynesia is rarely found on one’s bucket list and it will is one of the best dream vacation luxury destinations for everyone.
Nestled in the South Pacific halfway between Peru and New Zealand, it is far from anywhere. Its high tabs give any budget a workout. And with limited activities for visitors, besides lazing in their “overwater bungalow” and snorkel in the turquoise lagoon below, French Polynesia is perfect for those travelers who just want to unwind and enjoy passivity.
The best way to really see Tahiti is on a cruise that stops on numerous Polynesian islands. The luxury choice for a Tahiti cruise? Well, no other than the deluxe small ship, Paul Gauguin.
For luxury travelers (and honeymooners) seeking a one-stop private getaway on a tranquil tropical isle, French Polynesia is heaven-sent. Awaiting you are ravishing resorts established by five-star hotel brands.
Is there ever a luxury traveler whose bucket list lacks a deluxe African safari? It’s time for you to get started.
According to luxury travel experts, eco-conscious Kenya, South Africa, Zambia, and Botswana have become the go-to African safari choices. In these places, safari adventurers get personal with majestic lions, leopards, giraffes, rhinos, and elephants and can relish candlelit dinners and moonlit nights at simple yet stunning safari lodges and camps.
There are private or small-group African safaris that are highly customizable, which can include Range Rover trekking, heli-touring, biking, and hiking. Or it could swing by spectacular Victoria Falls or combine “bush and beach.”
Additionally, you can also explore Mt. Kilimanjaro, Cape Town, Mozambique, and a hundred more fabled luxury destinations.
