Are you traveling to New York City? This guide will show you how to have the most luxurious time of your life there and live the life of a billionaire in New York.

New York City is one of the world’s most famous cities as well as one of the largest areas with a population of over 8 million people. Hundreds of thousands of tourists visit the fast-paced city and there is always something for everyone to enjoy. You have endless shopping opportunities, museums to visit, great bars and restaurants and an entire street dedicated to Broadway performances.

And even though all these sound so interesting, this is what ordinary tourists do while visiting New York. On the other hand, rich people have plenty of luxury options to do and enjoy the most expensive things in this wonderful city. So, what are the 10 best things to do when money is not a problem while visiting the big apple?

#10 Watch a Baseball game with a Yankee Legend: $299

Even if you are not a Yankee’s fan, one of the greatest experiences is to go at their stadium and watch a game in the luxury party suite which gives you the best view of the game. You can also meet at least a couple of Yankee legends while watching the game so it’s the perfect time to bring any photos or other items with you to be signed by the players. This awesome suite has an HD TV for close ups and an all inclusive buffet with baseball foods. This can be once in a lifetime opportunity for all baseball and especially Yankee’s fans.

#9 Personal Shopping tour and makeover: $300

Why shop with other ordinary people when you can afford shopping on the most expensive shopping streets in the world? You now have the opportunity to go around Fifth Avenue with a shopping guide and a personal stylist on one of the most popular New York City shopping tours. You will be able to find clothes that better fit your style and the best deals for you. If you are looking to revamp your wardrobe at the biggest city known for fashion, this tour is perfect for you; you will spend the day learning all about designers and trying on new things.

#8 Private SUV Tour: $425

You need to take a private tour in a luxury SUV to truly experience all the surroundings of the big apple. Usually, this tour takes four hours but they can always arrange for a longer and more expensive tour. One of NY’s best guides can accompany you to the places you want to visit, and there will be plenty of opportunities to stop and walk if something tickles your fancy. No need to wait around other groups of people, like an ordinary person. You can now travel in style and experience everything in luxury.

#7 Order a Bellissima Pizza at Nino’s: $1,000

Now, if we are talking about food, Nino’s Bellissima Pizzeria in NYC has one of the most expensive pizzas, topped with $820 worth of caviar with the remaining $180 covering the cost of the pizza and Maine Lobster they sprinkle on top of it. The owner Nino Selimaj, started off his career as a dishwasher in 1958 and now has five restaurants serving mostly famous clients such as Hilary Duff, Chelsea Clinton and the cast of The Sopranos.

#6 Bottle Service at Marquee: $1,000 minimum

One of the best things you can do at night is spend it with the VIP experience at Marquee nightclub- one of the most exclusive clubs. If you want to skip the line, you can order a table and get a guaranteed entrance. Of course, there is a two bottle minimum for everyone so you have another excuse to drink! This Vegas style nightclub will have so much energy, and by having the best seats in the house you are guaranteed to have an amazing time.

#5 VIP Broadway Experience: $1,000

If you are a Broadway fan, we suggest getting The Wizard Will See You Now tickets for the musical Wicked which is celebrating 10 years on Broadway. Your ticket includes premium orchestra seating, personal concierge service to deliver drinks, a three course dinner at E&E Grill house, an autographed program book and a meet and greet with the cast. Having a Broadway experience is one of the most wonderful experiences you can have in New York.

#4 The Red Door Spa: $1,040

Apart from walking around the city and being a tourist you can spend a day pampering yourself in one of the city’s finest spas.

You can enjoy a fine facial, body treatment, massage or hair and makeup services all accompanied with Elizabeth Arden beauty products. 

#3 Charter a Yacht: $4,050

Do you know how beautiful is the Manhattan skyline? You can enjoy wonderful close-up views of the Statue of Liberty and Battery Park with a four-hour cruise on a luxurious yacht. You can get a dinner cruise or a private deep sea fishing trip on the Atlantic Ocean. If you want to spend the day like a billionaire you need to take a yacht as it is a symbol of luxury and wealth. One great idea would be to sign up for a holiday cruise on New Year’s Eve or 4th of July to see how all the fireworks lit up the sky and you can have your own private celebration on the luxury yacht- one of the most unique ways to experience New York.

#2 Diamond is Forever Martini: $10,000

Why not enjoy an incredible cocktail at midtown Manhattan’s wine bar Uncorked, and one of the most expensive cocktails in New York?

It contains a 4 ounce Chopin Vodka, lime and a custom-made 1 carat diamond ring. You can have a wonderful evening at this relaxing, friendly and luxurious environment at Uncorked.

#1 MetLife Stadium Luxury Suite: $375,000

You will have your own private entrance and enjoy an exciting game from above, from your own private viewing area and TV. Your suite will come with a washroom, personalized service and wet bar. And if you want to rent that luxury suite during the Superbowl you will have to pay around $920,00 for the big game. Maybe it sounds expensive, but it is one experience you wouldn’t want to miss!
