Aman is offering an exclusive 18-day Private Jet Expedition in October to China, Bhutan, India and Sri Lanka. An Aman general manager will lead up to eight guests through some of Asia’s most remote destinations aboard a Gulfstream G200 twin-engine business jet with the opportunity for land excursions along the way.
The journey begins in China’s capital of Beijing at Aman Summer Palace, a collection of historic pavilions adjacent to the UNESCO-protected garden estate, where guests are able to visit Beijing’s World Heritage Sites, from the Forbidden City to the Great Wall. Farther along in the journey, guests take a private jet transfer to Paro in the remote Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan, where they’ll stay at Amankora Paro and Amankora Thimpu, before setting out to see the town’s cultural sites, including the cliff-top Tiger’s Nest Monastery in the upper Paro valley and the Paro Dzong Buddhist temple.
The next stop brings guests to Jaipur, India, for an afternoon of guided experiences including the Amber Fort, Hawa Mahal and Johri Bazaar, before a private transfer to the Amanbagh resort in Rajasthan’s rugged Aravalli Hills. After two days at the resort, guests move on to Aman’s tented camp Aman-i-Khas on the outskirts of Ranthambore National Park, where they’ll go on a full-day safari in hopes of seeing India’s Bengal tigers and chital deer.
After flying south to Sri Lanka, guests spend the remainder of their trip at the beachside Amanwella resort near the country’s ancient temples and the region’s national parks. Aman’s Private Jet Expedition departs Oct. 9. Rates start at $63,888 pp dbl; $23,000 sgl supplement. For more information, visit aman.com.
