Top 5 crazy stuff rich people buy – including 2 you can afford right now

Let’s say you had 10 billions dollars how would you use it?

Here are 5 ideas for you.

 1) Buy a very expensive house


You could buy for example the Villa Leopolda in France, which costs around $1.2 billion.


Or you would prefer a residence on Mumbai, India for a cost of $1 billion

 2) Buy a Yacht to cruise the world


What about the Superyacht A design by Philippe Starch? It will cost you $323 million.


But maybe the Superyacht is not luxurious enough for you. In this case I would advise you the History Supreme for $4.8 billion. It’s the most expensive yacht on this planet. It’s decorated with bones of dinosaurs and tiny meteorites. But that’s not all! 100,000kg of gold and platinum as well as precious stones are used around the yatch to decorate it.

 3) Buy or rent your private island


The Katafanga Island located in Fiji, South Pacific will cost you $20 million. That’s nothing compared to the good time you will spend on this island with your family and friends.

Not but more seriously. If you want to live the dream of having your own island it’s now possible even if you’re not wealthy at all! On Private Island Online you can rent a whole island at a good price. So invite 10 friends to split the cost and you will get your own island for $300/night. I know it’s still a bit expensive but if you have always dreamed about living on your own island, I think that it’s definitely worth the investment!

 4) Buy your own private jet


The 1983 Cessna Citation III will costs you around $900,000

 5) Buy or rent your own limousine


It’s a bit cliché but who would refuse to have his/her own private limo? The Lincoln you see above will cost you $30,000.

Now if you use it occasionally, buying a limousine would be stupid and renting one would be more adapted.

Maybe you don’t know it but renting a limo for one night is definitely possible. If you want to show off and have some fun with your friends that’s possible! Renting a limo will only cost you $200 for 2 hours. I personally did it twice and it was a lot of fun!

What about you? What would you do with $10 billion?

    Sometimes we splurge and take Uber. It’s nice to be picked up in a black limo. Plus it’s faster and only a few bucks more than a cab. Time is money. 😉

    I could buy the Clippers! But seriously, it may sound cliché, but I would use most of it to give back to the world, and maybe splurge and spend a few million on a nice home (or homes lol).

    On another note, I can’t believe there is a yacht designed with dinosaur bones and metorites. Now that seems a little ridiculous.

    I would buy a jet and an endless amount of popcorn.

    I’d hire a carpenter to build us a new kitchen instead of doing it myself… Oh, who am I kidding, I’d do it myself anyway.
