China's largest online travel agency, Ctrip, will sell its 2017 travel-around-the-world trip on April 25.

HHtravel, Ctrip's high-end travel brand, will be responsible for the sales and operation of this product. Priced at 1.38 million yuan ($213,500) for each person, only 10 vacancies are available. It is the highest priced single travel product in the Chinese mainland. The 80-day travel package sold out in 13 seconds last year.

Stretching from Jan 3 to March 23, the trip will cover 22 countries and regions, with total flight mileage reaching 63,223 kilometers -- 1.5 times the circumference of the equator.

Taking off from Hong Kong, the trip will cover South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, the United Kingdom, Finland, Czech Republic, the United States, Mexico, Cuba, Peru, Argentina, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand and the two Poles.

All the flights will be in business class. Cruise trips, luxury train rides, private helicopter flights and even a nuclear powered icebreaker trip will be included.

Highly celebrated hotel brands, such as Four Seasons and Ritz Carlton, will be booked for accommodation. The trip also includes first-class restaurants, such as Longitude 131 at Ayers Rock in Australia and Hakkasan in London.
