UK website offers travelers 'world's most expensive holiday'
London, Mar. 20 : A UK-based website is offering travellers the chance to visit every World Heritage Site in the world on one two-year itinerary.
The epic journey is being touted by VeryFirstTo.com, with a heavy price tag, as anyone interested will need 445,000-pound per person to embark on the odyssey, reports the Telegraph.
There are a total of 962 sites around the world currently recognised by UNESCO, including 28 in Britain and 21 in the US. Some of the most notable include Stonehenge, the Pyramids of Giza, Easter Island, Machu Pichu, Notre Dame Cathedral, and the Vatican City.
The trip will include overland travel and flights, while tours of the different sites will be guided. Accommodation will be at a range of luxury hotels, including Sandy Lane in Barbados, the Hotel George V in Paris, The Plaza in New York, the Cipriani in Venice, The Ritz-Carlton in Moscow, and the Taj Mahal Palace in Mumbai.
The trip is for a minimum of two people, and includes a 5,000-pound donation to UNESCO.
VeryFirstTo.com teamed up with luxury tour operator Hurlingham Travel to devise the itinerary.
Andrew Barker, managing director of Hurlingham Travel said it is the most exciting trip his agency has ever managed and is the most remarkable travel adventure imaginable.
Other experiences offered by VeryFirstTo.com include a trip into space (69,000-pound), and the chance to wake up surrounded by more than one million rose petals (70,000-pound).
