Frequent Flyer Destinations - - VOYAGER -

Time­less En­coun­ters, an around the world jour­ney to some of the world’s most ex­tra­or­di­nary des­ti­na­tions. From the beaches of Bora Bora to the sparkling mar­ble of the Taj Ma­hal, this 24-day itin­er­ary touches down in vi­brant cities and tran­quil is­land par­adises.

Lo­cated on Hawaii’s Big Is­land, Kona is revered for its calm, clear wa­ters, the rugged beauty of its vol­ca­noes and lava fields, and the in­tensely rich cof­fee that grows in this re­gion. Shielded from the winds by Mau­naloa, south Kona’s tran­quil wa­ters are per­fect for snor­kel­ing, div­ing and spot­ting dol­phins and honu, Hawai­ian green sea tur­tles. In the cooler up­land slopes, sam­ple the distinc­tive flavor of 100 per­cent Kona cof­fee. Kona is also known for its deep sea fish­ing and hosts the In­ter­na­tional Bill­fish Tour­na­ment ev­ery Au­gust.

We cross the in­ter­na­tional date line, los­ing a day en route, and ar­rive in Syd­ney, a city that pulses with a vi­brant so­cial scene and ex­cit­ing pos­si­bil­i­ties for out­door ad­ven­tures. Go for a be­hind-the-scenes look at the Syd­ney Opera House, its soar­ing “shells” de­signed to re­sem­ble sails. Try the Syd­ney Har­bour Bridge Climb, an ex­cur­sion over the world’s largest steel arch bridge.

Opt to take a sea­plane ride for in­cred­i­ble views of the city. De­part from Syd­ney’s his­toric dis­trict, The Rocks, to sail around the re­mark­able har­bour.

Crowned by the nearly 6,000-foot Mount Batur, the In­done­sian is­land of Bali is filled with the nat­u­ral beauty of oceans, vol­canic moun­tains, deep rain forests and ter­raced rice pad­dies. Take a scenic ride to see beau­ti­ful rice ter­races and sa­cred tem­ples. Ex­plore the vil­lage of Ubud, the is­land’s artis­tic cap­i­tal. Or en­joy a pri­vate shop­ping ex­cur­sion tai­lored to your in­ter­ests. In­dulge your in­ner ex­plorer with an ex­cit­ing white-wa­ter raft­ing ride on the Ayung River or re­lax with a Ba­li­ne­seAyurveda-in­spired spa treat­ment.

With a dy­namic din­ing scene and some of the best shop­ping in South­east Asia, Chi­ang Mai is the vi­brant gate­way to North­ern Thai­land. Cruise through the city by tuk-tuk to see the old city walls, a moated quar­ter filled with gable-roofed tem­ples. Head out on an ele­phant trek in the ver­dant jun­gle. Visit the an­cient tem­ple of Chedi Luang, where the fa­mous Emer­ald Bud­dha was once en­shrined. Or choose to up­grade for a jun­gle ad­ven­ture in Chi­ang Rai.

Agra for a day. Ex­plore the Taj Ma­hal, a UNESCO World Her­itage site built by Em­peror Shah Ja­han to hon­our the love of his life—Mum­taz Ma­hal. Take in the poetic mar­ble ar­chi­tec­ture sparkling in the sun­light and or­nate in­lay work of the Taj Ma­hal, or

ex­pe­ri­ence an­other jewel of the Mughal Era, Agra Fort. Af­ter a day of ex­plo­ration, board our Pri­vate Jet and ar­rive in Dubai in time for din­ner.

Ad­mire the Ara­bian Gulf from the Burj Khal­ifa as you sip cock­tails in the world’s high­est restau­rant. Ven­ture into the desert on a thrilling 4x4 jour­ney, with stops for dune board­ing and a fal­conry demon­stra­tion. Take a flight­see­ing jour­ney above the in­cred­i­ble ar­ti­fi­cial is­lands of The Palm and

The World. Cruise around the har­bour aboard a pri­vate yacht as the sun gilds the metal-and-glass sky­line. And don’t for­get to pam­per your­self in the lux­u­ri­ous Pearl Spa.

Of­ten called a fairy tale city, Prague is rich with gor­geous Gothic struc­tures, twist­ing cob­ble­stone streets and hid­den court­yards. Visit Old Town Square and see the As­tro­nom­i­cal Clock, a mas­ter­piece of di­als and fig­urines built in the 15th cen­tury. Walk across the fa­mous Charles Bridge, tak­ing in the omi­nous Baroque stat­ues that line the side. Shop for Bo­hemian crys­tals at some of the best bou­tiques in the city.
