Sail On The Ritz Carlton’s First Luxury Yacht

Set sail on a journey with The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection. Designed to combine the luxury lifestyle of The Ritz-Carlton and the casual freedom of a yachting vacation, The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection will offer bespoke voyages on the first of three custom-built yachts in 2020.
Most voyages range from seven to ten nights, offering many overnight calls and uniquely curated experiences ashore. Each yacht will feature 149 suites, each with its own private terrace, and accommodate up to 298 guests in a relaxed, casually elegant atmosphere.
As with The Ritz-Carlton on land, each yacht will feature personalized service, elevated dining and luxury amenities. The yachts are also available for private charter.

Gourmet Picnic On The Great Wall of China

Walk along the ancient Jiankou section of the Great Wall of China, offering perhaps the most authentic experience with unrestored towers and crumbling ramparts, towards the renovated section at Mutianyu.

Soak in the views with a picnic lunch on the wall, away from the crowds and in all its rugged, untouched grandeur. The first hour of the trek is an approach to the ancient structure, which gradually comes into view, before hiking past crumbling watchtowers as the wall becomes steadily more restored as you head towards Mutianyu.

Be sure to break the journey at the Zhengbeilou Tower with its panoramic views over the Jiankou wall and the surrounding countryside. After around 5 hours of hiking you’re rewarded with a picnic of cheese and wine on the Great Wall before being driven back to Beijing in the evening.
