The 10 Most Expensive Travel Destinations

By on April 20, 2015

#5: Paris, France

Much like London, Paris has a longstanding reputation for having some of the most expensive restaurants and hotels in the entire world. But even if you don’t opt for the most expensive accommodations in the City of Love, you will still find yourself spending a whole lot of money.

Paris is replete with tourists pretty much 24/7/365, and as a result, prices are jacked up due to the ever-flourishing tourism industry. An average hotel in downtown Paris costs about $350 these days, and if you opt for something fancier, spending in excess of $500 a night is very easy to do.

Nonetheless, Paris remains one of the most famous and frequented cities in the world, and it seems that price surges have little bearing on whether people will continue to visit the capital of France.


#4: New York City, United States

The 4th-most expensive city in the world is right here in the good ol’ USA. New York City is home to many of the most expensive hotels, restaurants, and clubs in the world, making it one of the most expensive places you can possibly visit.

You’ve heard stories about New York real estate prices being astronomical, and those jacked-up prices reflect in downtown hotels as well, where paying $500 per night for a decent room is pretty commonplace. The city’s lineup of gourmet restaurants does little to take away from the high-priced absurdity, either. And if you want to go out in New York City, you’ll have a blast, but you’ll have to pay steep cover charges and hefty drink prices at any decent club.

To Americans, New York City is obviously not an exotic travel destination, but that doesn’t stop the Big Apple from being one of the most expensive places for anyone – foreign or American – to visit.
