There are certainly some places that are much better than others when it comes to offering an array of deluxe options, with many of the most desirable locations offering the best hotels, restaurants, cars and shopping experiences on the planet. These types of hotspots aren’t just for the rich and famous, but in order to enjoy them to their full potential, it does require a bit of spending here and there. You certainly get what you pay for, though. With that in mind, below is a look at five of the most luxurious cities for shopping, dining and other luxury pursuits in the world right now.
The weather might be a bit hit and miss, but London offers an extensive array of high-end offerings. From iconic sites like Big Ben to Michelin-starred restaurants in areas like the King’s Road, there are plenty of luxurious options in the city. Shopping in Harrods is a must, so too is staying at the Intercontinental Park Lane Royal. On top of this, you can enjoy champagne tasting on the London Eye, rent a classic car, enjoy afternoon tea at one of the city’s many establishments, and even purchase some jewellery in Hatton Garden.
Visiting Las Vegas is at the top of many peoples’ wish lists, largely because it’s a vibrant city with plenty to offer in terms of entertainment but also because it serves up a large dose of luxurious living.

Moreover, while Vegas’ casinos remain part of the culture, the city has so much more to offer.
