Hot! Ten Things You Might Do When Rich

Here’s Ten things you might do if you were extremely rich, and in some cases had no taste!


Where would you live? Monaco?, Seychelles?, Bora Bora? How about Mumbai?

Worlds most expensive house

That’s where the richest man in India chose to build the most expensive house in the world. Mukesh Ambani spent £630m on his 27 storey home for his family of 5 and 600 staff. Antilla as he has named it boasts 6 storeys for his 168 cars (including a maybach), A Health club, Gym, dance studio, ballroom, guest rooms, 50 seat cinema and 3 Heli pads (one is never enough!). The 53 year old tycoon will be moving in with his wife and 3 children and his 600 staff from their current pokey 14 floor home.


What about if you get a bit bored at home?

Worlds most expensive yatch

Well you could go for a weekend cruise on the worlds most expensive privately owned yatch if you happen to be Chelsea fc owner Roman Abramovich. He has spent a reported $1billion on his yatch Eclipse after trading up from his previous yatch. This record breaking 557ft long super boat boasts 2 swimming pools, 2 helipads (again one is never enough!), a Gym, hair salon and submarine, but make sure you book your mooring well in advance if going somewhere popular. Mr Abramovich was unable to moor his yatch when visiting Antibes in the south of France, as a saudi prince had already parked his little 265ft long boat in the only space big enough on ‘Millionaire’s Quay’. This forced mr Abramovich to moor off shore. I hate it when that happens, don’t you?


Decorating The Yatch
