The Top 5 Most Luxurious Cities in the World

Date: April 1, 2013 | By: Enid Glasgow | Category: Travel Blog

When we think about luxury, we typically think of Paris with its culinary treats or London with its culture of lavishness.  While these cities are premier destinations for travelers, there are also many other cities that offer world class accommodations, five-star restaurants, and a variety of other lavish services and opportunities. When you find yourself in need of fine dining and pampering, look no further than these cities.

1. Tokyo

Despite its size, Tokyo manages to maintain a sense of Oriental mystique while also being able to offer travelers modern opportunities and accommodations. While in Tokyo, you will have the opportunity to visit Kabuki theaters, bathe in Tokyo’s famous hot springs, tour world class art museums or even shop at some of Japans most high-end department stores at Ginza. There truly is no end to the intrigue and beauty to be discovered in Tokyo.

2. Seoul

Seoul is another Asian gem that brings historic culture, luxury and modernity to its visitors. As the capital of North Korea, Seoul offers unmatched elegance and hospitality. While in Seoul, you will definitely want to stay at the luxurious Westin Chosun Hotel and stroll to Downtown Seoul where you will find some of the most upscale shopping in the world.  The Gyeongbokgung Palace is also a great place to visit as well.

 3. Dubai

Dubai is a truly magical place and is the Middle East’s most luxurious city. There is no shortage of five-star accommodations, so you are sure to be pleased no matter where you stay. For instance, The Burj Al Arab Hotel is in a class of its own when it comes to luxury.  Take in the gorgeous views of the Arabian Gulf from its roomy suites and experience the mix of contemporary flair and ancient culture. Not only is Dubai a luxury destination, it’s very friendly and has virtually no crime.

 4. Antigua

Antigua is where the world’s billionaires go to relax. Here you will find white sand beaches and water that is so blue, it’s impossible to look away.  Many people choose to sail, dive or cruise these pristine waters. There really is no wrong choice of watersport. One thing you absolutely must experience in Antigua is the SubCat Antigua Underwater Adventure. This submarine takes you underwater to see exotic fish and the coral reef up close and personal.

 5. New York City

Refined and gritty, sophisticated and raw, New York City is an experience that luxury travelers will never forget. With an unbelievable array of restaurants, cultural attractions and world class accommodations, New York City is sure to please everyone that visits. There are so many things to do in New York City that it’s much easier to list what you can’t do than what you can.

Luxury can be found in cold mountain resorts or steamy tropical cities; above all, it is found when you look and appreciate the charm of a culture and its offerings.
