11 Most Expensive Hobbies In the World

Page 1 of 11

Everyone has a hobby, but a number of hobbies are clearly more expensive than any others, like the 11 Most Expensive Hobbies In the World. Hobbies can consist of everything from hair-styling to jet-skiing. Hobbies can also be cheap (cooking) or expensive (theme park hopping).

In most cases, hobbies are never expensive right off. But when it becomes more than just an occasional pastime, the cost can start racking up. For instance, if you wanted to go mini-golfing one day with a group of friends, it costs an average of $8 per adult. But if you decided you really liked golf and wanted to continue pursuing it often, then you would need to buy equipment, and pay to play or join a club. This comes to a total of at least $100,000, not to mention competitions. (More about the cost of golf later.)

11. Philanthropy

Experts say the annual American donates 3-5% of their annual gross income to charities. Warren Buffet, on the other hand, donated 85% of his annual income to Bill Gates, with the philosophy of giving to those he trusts who will live longer than him.
