Travel Tip: Where to Vacation Like World Leaders and Royals
Grand Pacific Hotel
If you can’t decide where to take your next vacation, just play “Follow the Leader.”
For years, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has spent her vacations at the same fisherman’s village hotel in Italy on the volcanic island of Ischia with its thermal springs and medieval castle. Its cheapest rooms are $205 a night.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle follow family traditions and stay at the Grand Pacific Hotel in Fiji where you can also get a room under $340 a night. The more than century-old hotel has a history of welcoming royalty.
Vladimir Putin doesn’t do mainstream vacations. In the summer, he heads to Siberia–the best time to be there. He hunts, picks berries and swims in Lake Baikal.
