Cathay Pacific Airways (www.cathaypacific.com) has made a trip from the United States to China much more comfortable—dare we say, even enjoyable. On a first-class flight from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport to Hong Kong (priced at about $24,000), the seats fold down to create a bed more than 6.5 feet long and 3 feet wide. You can choose from more than 50 feature films and TV programs to watch on an adjustable, 17-inch screen. And the airline provides made-to-order meals, with unlimited caviar, at any time. The seats are equipped with a massage function, to ensure that you are relaxed as well as entertained, rested, and well fed. . . . Oberoi Hotels & Resorts (www.oberoihotels.com) offers a way to see India in style: private, guided tours with accommodation at an Oberoi property at each stop. The 9-, 14-, and 22-day India in Luxury excursions, which range in price from about $7,600 to $17,200 per person, take place on dates that you choose. Destinations include the Taj Mahal, the Jagdish Temple at Udaipur, and Jaipur, the "Pink City of India," famous for its ancient pink lime-plaster structures.
