Well, this makes our caravan parks look like an afterthought. Abu Dhabi is home to the 7-star Emirates Palace Hotel, an over-the-top hotel that was built by the royal Al Nahyan family back in 2005. But for what it’s worth, prices to stay at this luxurious hotel aren’t all that expensive (kinda), with rooms starting at just $470 a night. Oh, but there’s also glitzy add-ons, too. Like the $500-an-hour Maybach rentals, private room balconies, floor butlers taking care of every need, spa treatments, and the much talked about gold ATM.

Oh yeah, and there are nine restaurants and five bars in the complex. None of this is cheap, but if you take into account the fact that big city presidential suites cost over $30,000 a night, and here you can get one for just $15,000 – well, that’s kinda thrifty, right?
