My trading challenge students have had great success the past few months with over a dozen of them up $50,000+ in the first three months of 2013 already…it’s no wonder they’re getting more interested in how to put some of their profits to use whether its paying off their mortgages, their children’s college educations or my favorite, luxury travel!

Tim loves to travel to exotic places, and other wealthy individuals are no different. Check out ten of the most popular get-away destinations of the celebrities, millionaires and billionaires. Tim has been to a few of them, so check out his YouTube Channel to see videos and find out which ones.
First we have Vegas. Tim actually holds his annual pennystocking conference here, so you can go to the popular destination if you sign up! With drinking, gambling and strippers, this place is great for those who want to get their minds off of everything. The city of sin is home to 13 of the world’s 20 largest hotels, with famous restaurants, shopping, theatre shows, night clubs and more. As always, remember that what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.
Next we have Monaco. Since it is tax free, it is a great spot to really go all out. The individuals making the visit are met with rich history. Located on the French Riviera in Western Europe, this gorgeous city overlooks the blue waters of the Mediterranean. Not only is it gorgeous, but there are yachts, casinos, and some of the world’s top hotels. You can also taste food and champagne from some of the best restaurants in the world.
Third we have Dubai. Luxury and Dubai go hand in hand. With a seven-star property, the world’s tallest tower, manmade islands, underwater hotels and buildings that spin like a Weeble with an inner-ear infection, the city of Dubai is bar none the best at making headlines. It has built an entire tourist industry out of people’s curiosity. If you find yourself with 24 hours in the city, you’ll have no shortage of things to do. This United Arab Emirates destination is on every billionaires list.
Up next is Ibiza. Sometimes called the “clubber’s heaven,” this place is extremely popular among celebrities. Although it is famous for having some of the best nightclubs in the world, the island also has more than 100 miles of stunning coastline with dozens of tiny coves and more than 50 beaches to explore. You’ll have to fit in time to visit some of the exquisite restaurants and area culture. You’ll also have the option of staying in some of the most sophisticated hotels in the Mediterranean.
St. Barts is fifth on the list. The Caribbean get-away draws in billionaires to immaculate beaches, especially during the winter months. The island of just eight square miles offers a fair amount of privacy as well. You’ll find luxury yachts, designer boutiques, and celebrities, including the likes of Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey, and Jay-Z.
The Maldives is a rather popular destination for our very own Tim Sykes. Last year he actually took two trading challenge students to the island as a reward for working so hard. It has been reported that Sir Philip Green flew 100 guests in two private jets to the island for his 55th birthday. The gorgeous water, unrivaled seclusion and tranquil beaches draw in big names like Naomi Campbell. Who can blame them when websites like visitmaldives.com say “Welcome to the Maldives, where sands are white as the smiles of the locals, where fish swim happily in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, where the weather is a dream, and the deep rays of the sun wait to engulf you their arms.”
Hvar has made it on the list even though I have not heard of it before. Some call it the new St. Tropez of Europe with the mega-rich flocking to the Mediterranean coastline. Bill Gates, Steven Spielberg and Eva Longoria are among the big name stars that like to visit. With lush vineyards, hills covered in blooming flowers, gorgeous beaches, secluded coves, restaurants, boutiques, and a vibrant nightlife, I can see why it is the ideal get-away.
Bora Bora is definitely one of the destinations that I had heard of. Located in the French Polynesia, this “Pearl of the Pacific” draws in honeymooners and the high-end crowd alike. Surrounded by a lagoon and a barrier reef, this gem is a major international tourist destination, famous for its aqua-centric luxury resorts. Snorkeling and scuba diving in and around the lagoon of Bora Bora are popular activities, and if you’re feeling adventurous, many species of sharks and rays inhabit the surrounding body of water.
Next we have St. Tropez. Everyone shows off here. You can find everything from toddlers decked out in haute-couture outfits to glamorous grannies zapping around town on vintage Vespas. Also located on the French Riviera, the names aren’t the only big things here, some of the secretive yachts are bigger than a typical house.
Finally, we have Aspen. Celebrities obviously go for the best when they are looking to hit the slopes. This city in Colorado is most popular for its legendary ski resorts. The Aspen landscape is now home to celebs such as members of the Kennedy family, Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, Kevin Costner and Maria Shriver. The posh city offers handsome historic red-brick downtown and giant slopes that are certainly alluring, but many say Aspen’s greatest asset is its scenery. The magnificent alpine environment adds eye candy to an already glittering jewel.
