Page 1 of 11

What are the most expensive holiday destinations? Travelling is one of the most enjoyable, fulfilling, and rewarding hobbies one could have. And since we don’t get that many holiday leaves a year, we should try to make each travel memorable and worthwhile. But more often than not, travelling also comes at a cost. We would like to present you with a list of the 10 most expensive holiday destinations for the year 2013. You might be surprised, but none of them are exotic or tropical destinations. That’s right. No Bora Bora, no Bahamas, no Fiji.

The destinations were ranked according to the figures released by TripAdvisor in its TripIndex. According to the index, the cost of a holiday destinations is estimated on the cost of one night out spent in that particular city. One night out refers to two people staying one night at a four-star hotel, eating a two course dinner, drinking a bottle of wine and cocktails, and paying for a taxi fare of 6.4 km.

Norway’s capital, Oslo, emerged as the world’s priciest holiday destination. This is not necessarily surprising, as Norway is also the country with the highest cost of living in the world. Just one night spent in Oslo will set a couple back approximately $561. By looking at the countdown, it is easy to say that Europe is the most expensive continent, as 5 other European destinations, apart from Oslo, are also in the top 10.

The only US destination to feature in the list is New York City. For one night out in the Big Apple, 2 tourists will pay a little under $500.

The only beach-like destinations in our countdown are represented by Punta Cana, Dominican Republic and Cancun, Mexico, where couples will pay a little over $420 for just one night out in the town. Curious to see what other destinations have made it to the top 10? Let’s take a look at the countdown. Also don’t forget to check out our list of top places to visit before you die.
