SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TCS World Travel, the leading tour operator of private jet expeditions for nearly 25 years, today announced its newest journey: Mystic Kingdoms of Asia, Exploring the Secrets of Longevity with Dr. Andrew Weil. Dr. Andrew Weil, a best-selling author and leader in the field of integrative medicine, will host this innovative small-group expedition—the first in a series of wellness-oriented journeys. This itinerary combines access to fascinating destinations—from the modern cityscape of Singapore to the remote Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan and the ancient spiritual capital of Laos—with explorations of ancient traditions centered around the body and soul.
“I am thrilled to partner with TCS World Travel on this inaugural journey. Travel can enrich your life in many ways, and this journey is an opportunity to explore Asia in a meaningful manner while seeking out the keys to a long life from the people and cultures we encounter,” said Dr. Andrew Weil. “I have personally learned so much in my lifetime from traveling to new places and experiencing other cultures. This has influenced not only how I practice medicine but also how I live.”
The pioneer in private jet journeys, TCS World Travel is always looking to innovate new ways for today’s globally curious and affluent travelers to experience the world. On Mystic Kingdoms of Asia, an intimate group of just 20 likeminded guests will fly on an exclusively chartered Bombardier Challenger 850 private jet to the remote corners and spiritual thought-centers of Asia and enjoy meticulously curated activities designed to nourish their entire being. The journey takes flight February 1–21, 2019, and is priced at $82,950 per person based on double occupancy.
Guests will be accompanied throughout their journey by Dr. Weil and Barry Till, who is a noted expert on Asian history and culture. Through interactive talks and informal conversations, they will illuminate the connections between the destinations on the itinerary and the local traditions of body and soul that thrive in these communities.
