Alila Anji has launched the Aerial Tapestry package to give guests an opportunity to appreciate the beauty of Anji, in China’s north-western Zhejiang province, from above.
Guests can take to the skies with a choice of two aircrafts: a Cirrus SR-20 airplane or a Robinson R44 helicopter.
The Cirrus SR-20 is a piston-engine, four- or- five-seater composite monoplane, and the experience offers a choice of two 15-minute routes, flying over Tianzi Lake and Zhangwu Town, or over Tianzi Lake and Xianshan Lake. Those who dare can even have a go at co-piloting the aircraft.
The R44 is a single-engine helicopter that can accommodate the pilot and three passengers, and offers an eight-minute tour following the same routes but at a lower altitude of 300m.
The two-night package is priced from RMB6,760++ (US$1,062++) for two, and valid from now until October 31, 2018. The price includes a two-night stay in a Hill View Villa or Lake View Villa, daily breakfast for two, flying experience for two in either aircraft, one dinner and one lunch box.
The tour is organised in collaboration with Tianzi Lake Airport, Anji’s only airport, located one hour north of Alila Anji.
