You probably already know that travelling doesn't come easy. You have to be ready to splurge  ontransport, accommodation, food and recreation. However, there are some places that flat out, never make your budget. Here is a list of 7 such tourist destinations that are crazy expensive:

1. Copenhagen, Denmark

A city that requires no filters!
In need of an adventure in Europe, but not sure where to start? Take a detour to the capital city of Demark. Copenhagen was founded in the 10th century as a fishing village but it is now a bustling metropolis with a crazy nightlife. You can visit museums and galleries but save some money out for food because that's going to cost you! With 15 Michelin star restaurants like Noma, Danish food does not come in the fast-food format. So get ready to fork out money if you want food. Truly is the survival of the richest.


2. Bora Bora, French Polynesia

An island paradise for the elite!

3. Paris, France

City that puts a price on romance!


The world's most romantic city is also one of the most expensive cities. Widely considered as one of the most lavish cities in Europe, it is no surprise that it comes with a hefty price tag. Apart from you flying fares and accommodation costs, you'd also want to load up on some walking-around cash. You don't want to miss out on the decadent chocolate and wine culture in France. Hey, we never said romance and culture come cheap!

4. British Virgin Island, Guana

Island for Britain's elite!


White sandy beaches and bottomless cocktails are what await those who can afford a trip to this tiny but luxurious island. This is where the rich separate themselves from First World problems. Privatized water activities and sports are offered. And if you're really in the mood to shell out money, you can rent out the private Necker Island owned by Virgin!

5. Oslo, Norway

Ideal destination for an inexperienced traveler!


Oslo has many cultural and shopping destinations and is a travel-friendly place. It also plays host to many important events throughout the year like The Nobel Prize Ceremony. However, when it comes to your pocket, it's not very friendly. Oslo is one of the most expensive cities due to large deposits of oil and high standard of living. So don't forget your credit cards and plenty of cash to spend.

6. New York City, USA

The city that never sleeps!


Want to really live the fast-paced life of the city that never sleeps? Well then load up on cash because you're going to need it! Bustling streets are crowded with active nightlife and let's face it, the real delicacy of New York, is food. With restaurants in every corner selling dishes like the $6000 sundae, you'd better have some cash to burn that you want to burn through.

7. Sydney, Australia

The most expensive city of Australia!


You must've won the lottery if you're considering a vacation in Sydney. With flight tickets that cost no less than ~CHECK~ 60,000 per person and Visa costing even more, Sydney has been ranked as one of the top 20 most expensive destinations consistently and is also the most expensive city of Australia. Besides, if you want to visit the multitudes of monuments and museums and landmarks, you'd better have a wad of cash because you're going to have to spend a pretty penny!
