Some may argue that the entire point of going on vacation is to snap photos that will make others wish they were there. But, when celebrities go on holiday, those envy inducing photos are taken to another level.
We’re talking selfies on yachts, $10K-a-night Airbnbs, or insanely luxe hotels. That’s how you roll when you’re in the top-tier tax bracket, and naturally, you post the Instagrams to prove it. Ahead, we’ve rounded up our favorite glimpses into how the 1% really travels. Warning: You will want to book that bucket list trip after clicking through this.
