Day 10 Cairns, Australia - Siem Reap, Cambodia
Day 11 Siem Reap, Cambodia
Angkor, capital of the Khmer empire, was renowned for its superb architecture, vast lakes, and temples bursting with diamonds, rubies and gold. Hidden in the jungle until the late 19th century, Angkor Wat is perhaps, the most inspired monument conceived by the human mind.

Days 13-14 Lhasa (Kathmandu), Tibet
Journey through the Himalayas to some of the most beautiful and isolated places on earth.

Day 15 Lhasa (Kathmandu), Tibet - Agra, India
Day 16 Agra, India
Built by the great Mogul emperor Shah Jehan in memory of his wife, the Taj Mahal is the world’s greatest monument to eternal love. Observe the splendor of this marble masterpiece at dawn or dusk when the Taj takes on different hues with the day’s changing light.
Day 17 Agra, India - Cape Town, South Africa
Days 18-19 Cape Town, South Africa
Not only is Cape Town stunning, but its surroundings are equally spectacular. Circle around the Cape Peninsula with its majestic panoramas and unique wildlife, from ostrich farms and foraging baboons to Africa’s only colony of penguins, nesting, diving, and strutting their stuff.
Day 20 Cape Town, South Africa - Abu Dhabi, UAE

A mirage of towering skyscrapers sparkle in the blue waters of the Gulf, while just outside the city, Bedouins herd caravans of camels across the desert dunes. Go wadi bashing on a desert safari. Then live the thrill of a Formula 1 driver at the amazing Yas Marina Circuit.
