The great thing about having your own jet is that you can decide where to go at almost the last minute. Still, you can’t put it off indefinitely and so it’s time to start looking at where you’ll go this year for the holiday season. Will it be somewhere with snow or will you seek out the tropics? Will you go for the food, the view or the culture? These are all hugely important questions.
To help you decide where you’ll go, here are five of the most popular private jet destinations you can shoot off to.
Ibiza – the island of phenomenal beaches, beautiful people and crazy parties. As always, this holiday season the crowds will be going down to the island to have themselves a fantastic time. So why not join them?
You’ll be able to catch some of the big names in music as well as hang out with the movers and shakers of modern culture to whom this island is still a premier destination. That’s probably why last year the country saw a 38 percent rise in private jet travel.
Do note, it’s not exactly beach weather right now. The temperature is 59 degrees Fahrenheit (15 Celsius). Still, the sun is shining and that makes up for a lot if you’re coming from real winter climes.
When we’re talking about popular places to go, we obviously have to discuss Aspen. This is where the rich have gone for decades and where they will certainly continue to congregate for the coming decades as well. That makes it a great place to see and be seen – and obviously to fly into.
The snow is perfect right now, which means that you can take to the slopes and carve some beautiful lines across the mountains. Then there are some of the best spas in the world, as well as some excellent food choices.
In fact, there are so many great choices here, one winter holiday will probably not be enough.
There is something special about New York during the holiday times. The countdown on Times square, the parties all across town, the generosity and the free spirit of the people who live here and, of course, the city itself.
So why not spend your winter holidays in the big apple? Sure, there are no beaches or slopes, but that doesn’t matter when you’ve got the best city all around you. You can go shopping, you can sip phenomenal lattes and mochaccinos in the best cafés in the world and you can soak up the fantastic spirit that makes this place the unrivaled capital of the world.
So, if you’re after the parties and if you care about getting a new pair of shoes more than the newest European beats, then New York has to be the place for you to go (not to mention that there are some choice clubs here where you can still soak up all of that music).
Just don’t expect to actually do any of those assignments and read any of those books that you were planning to when you’re down here. New York is just way too exciting for that kind of thing. You’re going to need to get some help if you’re after something like that – like MyBestEssays.org for example.
Why not check out one of the most beautiful places of the French coast, the bit along the Mediterranean? This is one of the most popular hotspots for the European rich, they are flying there in truly huge numbers.
The Côte d’Azur was one of the very first tourist resorts back when only the rich could travel. As a result, it isn’t like any other place in that it does everything with a style that has come with being this kind of a place for longer than most places have been countries.
It hosts a huge selection of the wealthy and the well-connected. This includes such writers as Aldous Huxley, Pablo Picasso and Edith Warton. It is also a very popular place for boats, so why not have yours steered down there for the winter season. Then you can go take a tour around the Mediterranean and visit some other top attractions.
West Palm Beach
Phenomenal shops, great food and amazing quality broadway style shows make West Palm beach a natural gravity spot for the well-heeled. Add to this the beautiful beaches and the gorgeous waterways and you know you’re in for some fantastic times.
The city itself gives you some great shopping and some wonderful art exhibitions. Then there is waterfront music and the nightlife, of course. The temperature at this time of year hovers around 65 degrees, which probably doesn’t mean sunbathing, but is just perfect for a little cruise or a walk down the beach.
And if that’s not your thing, just hang out in the town itself and meet the other faces and personalities who really know the scene and understand West Palm Beach is the place to be.
So that’s five of the most popular places you can go this winter. But of course, you don’t have to go to one of the top locations. That’s just an option – one of many seeing as you can tell that pilot to go wherever you want to.
Just remember that you do have to announce your plans beforehand. And in some situations, the airports at the more popular destinations are so crowded it might take a bit of time to actually get a berth.
So, be inventive. Go see the world. There is so much to do out there and so many people who you can do it with.
