Remote Lands is introducing a new 18-day Aman Private Jet Expedition to China, Bhutan, India and Sri Lanka from October 9-26, 2016. Just 16 guests will have the opportunity to travel on this exclusive vacation. Guests will travel on two Gulfstream G200 private jets and stay in eight Amans in Beijing, Lijiang, Thimphu, Paro, Ranthambhore, Galle and Tangalle.
The itinerary offers many exclusives, including a visit to off-limits areas of Beijing’s Forbidden City; going on a Royal Bengal Tiger safari in Ranthambore National Park; doing yoga in the ancient city ruins of Bhangarh in Rajasthan; hiking to the iconic Tiger’s Nest temple clinging to a cliffside in Bhutan; and exploring the historic Galle fort built in 1588 by the Portuguese and overflowing with charming old colonial architecture.
All touring during the trip is private, so each of the eight couples will have their own private car, driver and guide for all airport transfers and touring, along with highly personalized and customizable itineraries.
The entire group will come together each day for cocktail parties, dinners and lunches with extraordinary people from Bhutan, famous Sri Lankan artists and designers, and other notables. Guests will also dine at special venues such as the private residence of the royal family in the City Palace in Jaipur; a watchtower on the Great Wall of China; and the golden sand beaches of southern Sri Lanka.
The five-star Aman properties used for this private jet tour include Aman at Summer Palace in Beijing; Amandayan Resort in Lijiang; Amankora in Thimphu; Amankora in Paro; Amanbagh in Alwar, Rajasthan; Aman-i-Khás in Ranthambhore National Park; Amangalla in Galle; and Amanwella in Tangalle.
“The previous Aman jet journeys have been an overwhelming success and sold out quickly, so we are enthusiastic about continuing the partnership with Aman,” said Catherine Heald, Remote Lands’ co-founder and CEO.
Cost for the jet journey is $63,888 per person double, with a $23,000 single supplement.
