Around the World in 28 Days

Or..a month of fun!
Emirates Palace Abu Dhabi
Let's just say that 6 months or so ago you saw that all that risky debt that your firm was holding was soon to go under and that as the CEO you would have to serious 'splaining to do to the Board, the SEC, the Press and most worrisome, those pesky pension fund managers that held your stock.
What to do...what to do?
The answer of course is to resign with your fat benefits package that includes tens of millions in severance pay.
Not being one to stay at home and you know...cultivate your own garden...and let's face it, your architects, interior decorators and art consultants have already taken care of your Manhattan penthouse, your country home in upstate NY, your beach house in Bridghampton and your ski in - ski out chalet in you decide that it's finally time to take your spouse on that much needed vacation.
Around the world in 28 days.
A loose interpretation of Phileas Fogg's famous journey around the world, this remake by The Leading Hotels of the World stars you and a guest traveling east on a private jet from London to New York.
Over the course of 28 days (not 80), you will visit Paris, Dubai, Mumbai, Jaipur, Udaipur, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Honolulu, San Francisco, and Chicago and stay in some of the world's ultra-lux pads like the Prince's Suite at the Rambagh Palace (pictured) in Jaipur. But the hefty $1 million price tag affords a lot more than fancy sheets. Travelers can take a hot-air balloon ride over the Dubai desert, have cocktails aboard the Taj yacht on the Arabian sea, drive through Udaipur in a vintage car, take a private tour of the Gem Palace in Jaipur, helicopter over Hong Kong and partake in a traditional Japanese tea ceremony in Tokyo.
Happy Trails!
