In 1983, the Taj Mahal became a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is considered “the jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world’s heritage.”

The Forbidden City in China: The Forbidden City is the world’s largest palace complex. This ancient city houses 800 buildings with a total of about 9,000 rooms and is an interesting destination for those who enjoy history.

Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site in the U.S.: The Cahokia Mounds site was once a great city and bigger than London was in AD 1250. Those who lived here were master builders who constructed a wide variety of structures including monumental public works which have maintained their splendor for centuries.

This is just a handful of the sites included on this itinerary, but all sites have universal cultural value according to the UN body and are designated as “safe.” Luxury products and experiences of this trip can be customized by the couple and a donation of $7,500 will be made to UNESCO during the trip.
