A trip around the world
While many Americans are taking "staycations" this summer, here are some lavish trips that you can at least dream about going on one day.

A loose interpretation of Phileas Fogg's famous journey around the world, this remake by The Leading Hotels of the World stars you and a guest traveling east on a private jet from London to New York.

Over the course of 28 days (not 80), you will visit Paris, Dubai, Mumbai, Jaipur, Udaipur, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Honolulu, San Francisco, and Chicago and stay in some of the world's ultra-lux pads like the Prince's Suite at the Rambagh Palace (pictured) in Jaipur.

But the hefty $1 million price tag affords a lot more than fancy sheets. Travelers can take a hot-air balloon ride over the Dubai desert, have cocktails aboard the Taj yacht on the Arabian sea, drive through Udaipur in a vintage car, take a private tour of the Gem Palace in Jaipur, helicopter over Hong Kong and partake in a traditional Japanese tea ceremony in Tokyo.

Like the rest of the trips featured here, this vacation is completely customizable and can be booked at any time.
