Dubai: UAE residents with a penchant for wanderlust can experience the marvels of the world in a single journey, flying from one destination to the next on board a luxury jet, staying in posh hotels, pampered by local guides and personal assistants.

The Omeir Travel Agency (OTA) in Abu Dhabi is offering a tour package wherein travellers will be taken on a dream holiday, covering ten “legendary destinations” across the globe, starting in late 2012.

Remote islands, ancient monuments, exotic jungles, and bustling cities are all on the itinerary, including the Pyramids in Egypt, the Taj Mahal in India, and volcanoes in Hawaii.

Here comes the bad news — the chance to make the trip is limited to only 78 people who will zip to these exotic locations on board a VIP jet.

Bookings for the 22-day world tour are now open and a number of Emiratis and expats have already shown interest, according to OTA.

The trip costs Dh250,000 per person.
