World's Glitziest Destinations
Experience global travel’s cachet when you head to one of these glamorous hotspots.
Most of us assume glamour vacations are reserved for Hollywood A-listers and wealthy barons of business, but mere mortals need not retire their passports just yet.
Around the world, some of the coolest hot spots, from the tried and true to the new “it” locations, entice superstars to relax their autograph-cramped hands and raise a glass with the locals.
But true glamour means more than just Oscar-toting guests and expensive price tags. It’s an intangible quality that marries effortless style with a certain je ne sais quoi, and for travelers in search of both, there is plenty of low-key, high style posh to go around.
Soleil worshipers and yachtsmen set sail for the tiny French infused island of St. Barth’s, where locals and visitors eat like kings, drink Rosé, and party like rock stars (they might just be one) on the white beaches.
Take the chill off in Uruguay and indulge in Hot! Hot! Hot! sizzle at beach parties that go until breakfast and restaurants that please even the most refined palates.
For high altitude fun with style to burn, the snow globe setting of St. Moritz sees champagne flow faster than snowmelt and draws fur-clad glitterati to the frozen lake for one of the world’s most unusual races.
Whatever your taste, luxing it up is the activity du jour when over the top is never too much and unforgettable experiences are delivered year after year on a platinum platter. Don your flip-flops and your Rolex and go glamorous at these chic and accessible destinations.
