Guests will be paired with a dedicated resident tour director who will arrange behind-the-scenes and “rarely seen” tours of some of the world’s great monuments. Trips might begin, for example, in the Forbidden City with exclusive access to secret areas, followed by a champagne brunch served atop the Great Wall. Travellers could also opt to meet a noted archaeologist to inspect the Terracotta Army or sign up for a pulse-racing rafting experience on the Li River.

“We will link each stop on the itinerary with privately chartered flights, saving many hours of travel time for a more immersive experience,” says Abercrombie & Kent’s vice president, product operations Stefanie Schmudde. Hence, there’s plenty of time to enjoy fine food, which plays a starring role on the journey, from a six-course Michelin-starred dinner at The Peninsula Shanghai’s Sir Elly’s Terrace restaurant overlooking The Bund to high tea at The Peninsula Hong Kong – with transfers courtesy of the hotel’s signature Rolls-Royce fleet.
