10 Overpriced Experiences You Probably Can't Afford
Ah the money! It seems that we are always after him to fulfill our smallest and greatest dreams, such as buying that special product, a property that will bring security or make that trip that will mark our lives. In any case, for almost everything you do you have to have money - that is a fact.
It is true that almost all of us are not millionaires, nor do we need exorbitant amounts of money to live well, but it is also true that money is capable of providing some unique, sometimes even exaggerated, experiences. And speaking of exaggeration, that's what we're going to comment on here today at Mega Curioso.
Oddee has amassed 10 very expensive experiences that you probably won't be able to afford over the course of your life - unless you really are a millionaire and willing to spend your entire fortune. In any case, even the overly rich may think twice before investing their resources in such experiences. See below what they are:
1 - Ibiza's exclusive restaurant that is designed to defy the senses
SubliMotion is certainly a unique restaurant in Ibiza, where you can experience an almost theatrical as well as gastronomic experience. The price? Approximately $ 5, 100 per person. The venue provides an extremely technological experience, as people are immersed in environments that have relationships with the dishes presented through images projected on the walls and tables of the restaurant.
The seemingly simple ambience of the place is capable of transforming and bringing people to the remotest regions, where many of the ingredients of the dishes have their origins. In addition, aromas, music, temperature and humidity variations are also features in SubliMotion.
2 - A world trip that travels 150 countries in two years
When VeryFirstTo launched a special two-year travel package that spans 150 countries, they didn't expect much public input - after all, the advertised figure was over $ 4 million per person. It turns out a Chinese student got interested in the package (and bought it promptly). As it was in 2013, the anonymous Chinese should not finish his tour until the end of 2015.
Of course, this unusual package includes the world's most luxurious hotels and resorts, as well as exclusive tours. Although only one Chinese bought the package (aside from the money, you need to have two full years free for the ride), the affiliate companies said about 15 people called to request information about it.

The Royal Penthouse Suite at the President Wilson Hotel in Geneva, Switzerland is famous for its largest and most luxurious suite in the world. It has twelve suites, twelve marble bathrooms, and a terrace with stunning views of the Swiss Alps, so large that it's more of a permanent than a temporary place of stay - although it's hard for anyone to stay there for many days. with daily rates of $ 200 thousand.
The suite has maximum security and a high degree of privacy - the windows are shielded and there is a special elevator that leaves guests in their respective rooms. If you wish, you can request the service of a butler and a chef.
4 - The wine bottle that is not just a wine bottle
If you are a connoisseur of the most varied wines (and of course you have exorbitant amounts of money to spend), you might be interested in the most expensive bottle of wine in the world at Dubai Airport. Once in the United Arab Emirates, visit the Le Clos store at Airport Terminal 3 to secure your bottle of Château Margaux for the price of $ 485, 000. If you really want the product, you better hurry, as the store only has three of the six bottles produced.

Travel writer Derek Low has decided to invest and spend over $ 60, 000 on a Singapore Airlines flight to New York, all on Singapore Airlines, to see what it's like to travel truly VIP.

In his room, Low enjoyed a dinner with select ingredients, which included mutton and lobsters. During the flight, Low Givenchy pajamas, slippers, pillows and blankets were offered, while flight attendants quietly checked that the passenger was comfortable. After landing, Low commented, "I have to say that after being served with Dom Pérignon in a double room at 36, 000 feet, I don't think flying experiences can get any better than that."
