Montenegro got its independence from Yugoslavia way back in 2006. Now the country is thriving and no longer behind the Iron Curtain. But the whole place has since been turned upside down since it was opened up to the rest of the world.
Following the country’s emancipation, somebody had a bright idea. They saw the little island of Sveti Stefan and thought to themselves, “hey, this could be a tourist hotspot.” Since then, the island in the Budva Riviera has been transformed. The once humble fishing village is now home to hotels galore.
It’s become a hit with some of the most famous people in the world, including Queen Elizabeth and Sophia Loren. If you’re looking for celebrities, this is the place to find them.

Summer in St Tropez always has a party feel. But there’s probably no better place in Europe to find celebrities whiling away their summers. The reason is that the area is just so beautiful. The Cote d’Azur provided inspiration to some of the most celebrated artists in history like Picasso and Matisse.
The area is also a draw to many of the world’s most important social luminaries, dating all the way back to the nineteenth century. Filmmakers, actors, writers, artists and aristocrats: all of them have paid a visit to the region.
If you’re on the lookout for celebs, make sure to visit the blackjack tables and the myriad harbors full of yachts. And, if you can, pay a visit to a private beach. You could find Angelina Jolie herself relaxing on a sun lounger.

Back in 1973, Canadian entrepreneur David Gilmour bought the Fijian island of Wakaya. Since then, he’s turned it into a rather profitable business venture, attracting celebrities all over the world. Granted, the prices are eye wateringly high. You’ll pay $2000 per night to stay in a traditional house or $7300 for a villa. But at least you’ll get to brush shoulders with the glitterati. Keith Richards, Nicole Kidman, and Bill Gates have all been to the island. Even Russell Crowe has paid a visit.
If you want to catch a peek at some of the best bods in America, Miami’s South Beach is the place to go. Miami has an unusual ability to attract them all. Here you’ll find yuppies, starlets, and rappers of all stripes. And you’ll find all manner of hotels, trying to get one up on the next one down the street. All the biggest names in showbiz flock to Miami to get pampered. There’s nothing like the town’s nightlife or the sound of the Latino beats.
