如何在享受奢华旅行的同时省钱?

Paris, Chicago and Beyond: How to Have a Luxury Trip for Much Less Than You Think

Luxury travel can be experienced in two ways: by paying top dollar or by paying less. Given the choice, wouldn’t you pick the latter?

奢华之旅可以通过两种方式体验到:付出高昂的费用或是付更少的钱。如果可以选择的话,你难道不会选择后者吗?

Of course, the idea of what luxury travel is can differ depending on the person. For some, it means hotels with butlers and fancy sheets and flying first class; for others, it’s about hitting restaurants with three Michelin stars and hiring the occasional private guide and car with a driver.

当然,对于奢华之旅是什么,不同人的理解可能不尽相同。对一些人而言,它意味着带管家的酒店、高档的床单以及头等舱飞行;对另一些人而言,它意味着享用米其林三星餐厅、雇佣临时的私人导游,以及配备司机的专车。

Ultimately, it doesn’t matter how you define high-end travel. What matters is that it doesn’t have to be had at a premium price.

归根结底,重要的不是你如何定义高端旅行。重要的是,你并不是一定要为此支付高昂的价格。

Below are destinations where you can save money on an upscale trip without sacrificing a feeling of luxury.

以下是一些可以在不牺牲奢华体验的同时,帮助你省钱的高端旅行目的地。

Looking for a luxury vacation to Barcelona without paying top dollar? Done, says Virginia Irurita, the founder of Made for Spain and Portugal, a Madrid-based company that sells upscale trips. “Barcelona has become much more affordable in the last year, and a high-end trip on a limited budget is now attainable,” she said.

想去巴塞罗那享受奢华假期,又不希望花太多钱?没问题,马德里一家高端旅行公司“进军西班牙和葡萄牙”(Made for Spain and Portugal)的创始人弗吉尼亚·伊鲁里塔(Virginia Irurita)说。“过去一年里,巴塞罗那正变得越来越能让旅客负担得起,以有限的预算进行一次高端旅行是可以实现的,”她说。

Ms. Irurita’s advice:

伊鲁里塔的建议:

WHEN TO GO Hotels in Barcelona have the highest prices from April through October. From November through March, rates are at least 25 percent lower. Many five-star hotels also offer attractive packages during this low season.

何时前往:巴塞罗那的酒店在每年4月到10月之间价格最高。从11月到来年3月,价格至少会降低25%。很多五星级酒店也会在此淡季期间提供吸引人的套餐。

WHERE TO STAY Accommodations in residential neighborhoods offer better value than ones in touristy areas. Les Tres Torres, for example, has a few locally run, upscale properties, like Primero Primera, on a quiet, tree-lined street.

住在哪里:住宅区内的住宿比景区内的性价比更高。例如Les Tres Torres社区内有一些当地人经营的高档房产,普里梅罗第一酒店(Primero Primera)就在一条安静的林荫路上。

INDULGE IN LUNCH Locals make lunch their biggest meal of the day, and visitors should too, because they can take advantage of well-priced set menus at top restaurants. A starter, main course, dessert, wine and coffee is around 20 euros (about $23), for example, compared with
