If I Were a Rich Man

Money can't buy happiness, but when it comes to traveling the world, it sure may seem like it. Take a tour of a billionaire's vacation options, aspire to one, and start saving.

While some dream of being seduced by James Bond, others dream of being the debonair super spy. Who hasn't fantasized about the 007 world of luxury yachts, Aston Martins, and beating the house in Monte Carlo? Billionaire-level travel is all about receiving royal treatment—getting exactly what you want when you want it. You can tailor travel as easily as you tailor suits. Jetting around the world, indulging in the playboy (or playgirl) lifestyle naturally takes some serious lucre, but us mere mortals can still dream… With that in mind, imagine yourself a member of this elite club and try out this wish list for the perfect Bond-like vacation.
