Follow in the Footsteps of Kublai Khan- for $2m

Singapore-based Urbane Nomads has launched what it says is a 16-day package holiday based on the hunting trips of 13th-century Mongol emperor Kublai Khan.

The company says the holiday includes private jet travel through western Mongolia and China, horseback falconry, eagle hunting, and yoga sessions on the Great Wall of China. Holidaymakers will also have their portrait painted by an artist whose patrons include the Queen and members of Gulf royalty.

A spokesman for Urbane Nomads said there would be demand for the traditional values the trips represent, in spite of the dent made by the downturn on the buying power of the wealthy.
