A lot of people can’t afford to dine in Michelin 3-star restaurant. But when you have $275,000 you can afford to eat in all 109 Three-Star Michelin Restaurants in the world. Two British luxury travel sites, VeryFirstTo and Holidaysplease, have teamed up to offer a six-month culinary odyssey that will take two people to the world’s top dining addresses across 12 countries, including Lung King Heen in Hong Kong, Sushi Yoshitake in Tokyo, Per Se in New York and Le Meurice in Paris.
Guests will sample amazing culinary creations by the world’s best chefs such as “salmon poached in a liquorice gel” at Heston Blumenthal’s The Fat Duck and “pineapple bubbles” at Juan Mari Arzak’s Basque restaurant Arzak. Visits will average one restaurant every other day.
A lucky couple will also stay in five-star luxury hotels like the Trump International in New York, the Conrad in Tokyo, the Hotel de Paris in Monte Carlo, and Claridge’s in London.
When more detailed calculated – a meal at one of these restaurants might cost upwards of $1,000, a hotel room at a luxury property could cost over $1,500 per night, and trans-continental airfare for an around the world trip could run in the hundreds of thousands, it seems this travel package isn’t too much.
