Imagine yourself walking on the Great Wall of China, moseying around Beijing’s Forbidden City, floating across Hangzhou’s stunning West Lake, visiting the Tiger’s Nest in Bhutan, exploring the Pink City of Jaipur, going on a tiger safari in the Ranthambore National Park, enjoying a private tour of an ancient Portugese fort in Galle -- and topping all this off with a snooze on the exquisite white-sand beaches of Sri Lanka.

It's all yours on a new, 18-day trip across Asia on a private jet with just 17 other passengers put together by the folks at Frontiers Elegant Journeys. Set for Oct. 4-21, the tour features stays at upscale Amanresorts as you soak up the mysteries and luxuries of selected stayovers in China, the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan, India and the island nation of Sri Lanka.

You'll find details of the itinerary on Frontiers' website for the trip.

You'd expect to shell out a lot for an experience like this, and you will. The tab is $49,950 per person (based on double occupancy) and includes all flights within Asia, accommodations, transfers, car and driver service, English-speaking guides, activities and entrance fees as outlined in the itinerary, breakfast daily and most lunches. It does not include airfare to and from your hometown, dinners or gratuities.

Frontiers Elegant Journeys specializes in "stylish adventures and thrilling expeditions" around the globe. The travel company's tours include everything from photo safaris in Africa to private yacht charters in Alaska, barge cruises in Europe, family cruises in the Galapagos islands, tours of the Arctic and the Antarctic and many more.
