URBANE NOMADS' "WORLD'S MOST LUXURIOUS TRIP"
It takes quite a bit to bowl us over with travel-related shock and awe, but when we learned of this experience, we did a triple-take and proceeded slip into a suspended state of intense curiosity as to the composition of what they dub "The World's Most Luxurious Trip". While that's subject to opinion, we ceratinly find it one of the "most interesting". Leave it to Urbane Nomads to painstakingly design something like this, a group famous for its "no holds barred/nothing is impossible" attitude to creating absolutely incredible experiences.

The journey strings together a collection of truly once-in-a-lifetime experiences all relating to equestrian, falconry and hunting themes. Actually, what it is at the very core is a recreation of a hunting expedition of Kublai Khan himself. The trip begins at the Presidential Suite of the Park Hyatt Beijing for a reason...to completely pamper guests and prep them for the road to come which takes travelers through western Mongolia, led personally by an award winning filmmaker and hunters who know the region like the back of their hand.
The itinerary is not for the faint of heart - Mongolian terrain can be notoriously unforgivable though, and activities like eagle hunting and horseback falconry are not engaged in with considerable ease. But, made ever so much more bearable with the comfort of a luxurious private jet, personal chef, butler, abjectly lavish mobile accommodations that travel along with you throughout your Mongolian jaunt. Price tag? US $2 MILLION. Hey, we told you it wasn't for the faint of heart...

DINNER IN THE SKY- Multiple locations, worldwide

We didn't believe it either when we first crossed paths with this curious-sounding company, whose name actually just spells out exactly what it is. Suspending its diners, corporate meeting attendees and wedding couples 50 meters in the sky, guests at the "table" enjoy experiences such as full 5-course dinner served by a chef and waitstaff whilst being entertained by a guitar player. Talk about a table with a view, this makes all other vistas pale in comparison. Knees a bit weak yet? Apprehensive or a bit faint of heart? Don't fret, the self-proclaimed "safety-obsessed" creators have designed these unique, and extremely secure cranes built specifically with this concept in mind. The result- a one-of-a-kind option for an incredibly creative event- be it a meeting, dinner, party or even a wedding. Dinner in the Sky even allows you to customize your location so long as there's enough of the required space on the ground, you can organize this over a vineyard, golf course, historical site, city or anything else you can dream up. Plus, they operate in 15 different countries, giving you the option to transform any gathering into a most unforgettable event, in a most spectacular location.
