The wide variety of luxury tour packages--from Kenyan safaris to Tuscan vineyards to Rio di Janeiro nightclubs--might be overwhelming initially. Taking the time out to enjoy one of them, though, will prove more than memorable. Whether you're looking for a quiet get-away or an exotic adventure, whether you're traveling alone or with a group of friends, you'll never regret seizing the opportunity.

Luxury Tour Packages: A Flip through the Catalog

Imagine Mount Everest and its 29,043 feet, towering above the Himalayas between China and India. Halfway up its flanks is the Tibetan Plateau--"rooftop of the world"--the heart of Buddhism. Its capital city of Lhasa is dominated by the Polata, a vast white symbolic fortress, the burial place of Dalai Lamas. Mount Kailash, sacred to both Hindus and Buddhists, sits in a beautiful range of mountain peaks not too far away, the source of not only the Indus and the Yangtze Rivers, but the Ganges and the Mekong as well.

Connecting the Mediterranean and the Far East, the ancient Silk Road begins 16 hours by train west of Beijing and runs much of its 7,000 miles through China. Luxury tour packages include a stop in the city of Xian. There you'll see the vast life-sized terra cotta army, discovered only 1974, that guard the tomb of the first Qin dynasty emperor, Shi Huangdi. The ancient trade route weaves almost due west, passing the Great Wall, the Yungang grottoes, and the ancient city of Jiaho before passing over into Central Asia.

No matter where you decide to travel, however, luxury tour packages are your ticket to unforgettable memories. Think about taking time out to leave the stress and too-familiar routine behind for a while. You'll turn the logistics and headaches over to expert travel guides. Your responsibility is only to delight in new foods, exotic drinks, beautiful landscapes, ancient ruins, and countless other attractions.
