All of these are great places to visit and super high on my list. Having said that, I will attempt to eliminate some of the options. Two weeks would be a bit of overkill for Dubai and Vegas. Rio and Hawaii, certainly, would be places you can spend loads of cash. But if money is no object, I have to say both Tokyo and Paris offer tons more lavish/extravagant/luxury amenities. This one is a tossup between the two, but I'll go Paris cause I'd rather spend ridiculous money on a classic European destination.

I miss Japan but I miss Hawaii more.
I didn't read the 2wks part until after I voted.
If money's no object, why only 2wks?

I would want to go somewhere I haven't been before, so that takes Las Vegas and Tokyo off the list. Hawaii and Dubai hold little appeal to me, so it comes down to Rio and Paris. I love the tropics, but at my advanced age, safety in Rio would be a major concern, so I chose Paris.

Hawaii easily, in fact were planning to go there for the very first time for me and my husband's twenty year anniversary next year. We're going to Maui and I can hardly wait. I plan on hiking, snorkeling, seeing sea turtles, visit the national park, eat local cuisine, swim. If we had a full two weeks like you suggest I might learn to surf, get up super early and drive to watch the sunrise from that famous spot. Who knows what else, I guarantee you I'd have a blast there for two weeks.

We've been to Vegas more than once, it was fun, but not someplace I want to be for two full weeks.

None of the other places listed tempt me at all.

Tokyo. I've been to all but Dubai and hawaii. They don't interest me. Been to Paris four times. More than enough.
Not a fan of Rio or Vegas seen plenty if them in two trips.tokyo is amazing as are the people. They smoke too much but smoke too much. Food can be over the top crazy seafood but just eat at the tempura bars lol.

If I had my choice not listed I would go to Rome and spend two weeks there or see Madrid or Zurich for the first time.

Islands and ocean views are not my thing.

Love Asia, especially Singapore and Bangkok and Tokyo. Feels like s different world from her or Europe. Fascinating people and history we barely studied in school.

I would’nt even put Vegas in that list.

If money is not the issue then I will spend a week in Tokoyo and another week in Hawaii to just relax.

I am on the other side of the globe. I mean, coming from Tokoyo, I am flying over Hawaii anyway so why not kill two birds and make a stop.

None of those. Washington coast or Melbourne/Mornington/Frankston area, VIC (okay, I know people and have a couple Youtube/IRC acquaintances there whom I want to meet some day) FTW!

I picked Rio. I think I'd really enjoy the bustle of the city life there and eating all of the street food.

I've been to Japan and not the biggest fan of the country to be honest, though there are some great hotels and cultural sites there.

I probably would have picked Hawaii (Hawaii was always romanticized when I was a kid), but as I've lived here for the last few years, I've had enough of it

Paris is fine, but I don't think I'd want to spend two weeks there.

The other cities I'm just not very sold on.
