The world is full of people running after all kinds of comforts and luxuries. Almost everyone wishes to indulge in some kind of pleasure - be it materialistic, carnal or mental. Nothing shocking in the above statement. But what is surprising to know is the extent to which people are ready to go to just delve into an activity that may give pleasure for a few minutes, hours or days perhaps.

So here is list of experiences and activities you can indulge in that will definitely make you go broke but only after having bucket-loads of fun:

1. The World’s Most Expensive Cruise

Touring through 28 countries, this Mother of all cruises is the epitome of luxury. Throughout the course of your 115-day journey, you will be pampered like royalty, right from being picked up from your place by a chopper, flown to Los Angeles in a private plane and accommodation at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel before the trip and Sunset Island, Miami after it.

Don’t even get me started on the luxurious cabin on the ship! Apart from being furnished as regally as possible, the cabin also has 2 gardens! All this can be yours if you are ready to cough out around $1.5 million for this heavenly retreat provided by Silversea Cruises.

2. The World’s Most Expensive Hotel

Displacing the Royal Penthouse Suite in Geneva as the most expensive hotel in the world is the Grand Penthouse at the Mark location in New York City. This 1115 square meter hotel space costs a whopping $87,000 per night! The room is fit for a king with its 5 bedrooms, custom-made furniture, wet bars, lounge and option for a private romantic dinner on the terrace. An in-suite hair stylist and tailoring from Frederic Fekkai Salon and Bergdorf Goodman are also available.

3. Your Very Own Fantasy Island

Want to party all night but tired of those pesky neighbors complaining about the ruckus? Just book the Necker Islands that are a part of the British Virgin Islands and owned by none other than Richard Branson himself! The 74-acre island includes 10 bedrooms, 2 beaches, pools and all the amenities that one’s heart can desire. The only problem? Get ready to shell out a mind-boggling $51,000 for a single night on the island of your dreams.

4. The World’s Most Expensive Cocktail

Head over to the Land of Oz to grab the priciest cocktail made till date! The specialists at Club 23 in Melbourne created The Winston by mixing a little Croizet Cognac from 1858, Chartreuse Vieillissement Exceptionnellement Prolong, Grand Marnier Quintessence, Angostura Bitters and served with chocolate and nutmeg soil. Finally, some dry ice essence infused with citrus peel and spices is added at the top. The club has to be informed 3 days in advance to give them time to prepare it and, oh yeah, remember to keep around $13,000 handy for the drink!

5. Frrrozen ‘Haute’ Chocolate

The ultimate decadence in anything sweet, the Serendipity 3 in New Orleans created the sweet dish that was once the most expensive dessert according to the Guinness World Records in 2007. This sinful delight is made up of the usual cocoas, whipped cream and frozen milk, and then 5 grams of 24-carat gold are mixed into the dessert. A special truffle called the La Madeline au Truffe is flown in from France and is used to garnish the dish.

Because it isn’t royal enough already, the dessert is then served in a goblet surrounded by a gold and diamond crown and a gold spoon is provided. The price tag is a tear-inducing $25,000!

6. A Chateau in France

The French royalty was known for their indulgence in everything ultra-luxurious and their homes are a testament of that. Experience grandeur like never before at the Chateau la Camarguais in Carpentras, France. This dreamy villa can house up to 32 people and has conference rooms, lush parklands, swimming pool and every other luxury known to mankind. You will have to shell out a paltry $8910 per night for this paradise.

7. A Sweet Dish Like No Other

The Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel’s very own Chef Marc Guibert succeeded in creating a masterpiece pudding that would probably leave all other sweet dishes to shame. It is shaped to look like a Faberge egg and is made up of luxury chocolate, caviar, champagne and gold leaf. The pudding is topped up with champagne jelly and edible gold! The pudding may fill your tummy but will definitely empty your wallet as it costs a mind-boggling $35,000 and must be ordered 2 weeks in advance.

8. 30 Seconds to Mars

If the planet Earth has disappointed you in your pursuit to go broke then fret not! Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic has got you covered. For a mere $250,000 you can now buy your ticket to a flight in space! And you don’t have to be an astronaut for this trip.

9. The Playboy’s Mansion

Located in Las Vegas, the Sky Villa is owned by none other than Hugh Hefner himself! The mansion is furnished lavishly and has a gym, spa, $700,000 Jacuzzi and a media room. A butler will help you with whatever you may require during your stay here. Oh yeah, and did I mention there’s a rotating bed as well? *cough* for therapeutic reasons of course! All of this can be yours for a mere $34,000 a night!

10. Gamble It Away

If you haven’t gone broke already then the perfect option for you is to while away your time at some of the biggest and best casinos on Earth. You can visit The Venetian Macao in Macau, MGM Grand Casino or the Bellagio in Las Vegas. There are casinos all over the world which can help you in this pursuit! But be wary! You might end up hitting the jackpot and winning a ton load of money instead of spending it all away!
