Celebrating eight decades of international hospitality excellence, The Leading Hotels of the World pays homage to this epic film, creating an extraordinary journey around the globe, retracing (loosely) the steps of Phileas Fogg, brilliantly played by legendary actor David Niven.

The 28-day odyssey for one lucky couple will be a highlight of an auction to benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation, which will take place during the Foundation's 16th annual Academy Awards viewing party, February 24, 2008. The auctioneer for this stellar gathering will be David Niven's son, Jamie Niven.

The trip begins in London, the starting point for Phileas Fogg's quest. It continues on to Paris, Dubai, Mumbai, Jaipur, Udaipur, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Honolulu, San Francisco, Chicago and New York. The winning bidders, who will be flying first class all the way, will stay in ultra-luxurious Leading hotels and resorts in all 12 destinations, where they will enjoy exotic experiences and unmatched elegance.

In addition to exquisite suite accommodations throughout, just a few of the elements of this once-in-a-lifetime trip include a camel safari in the desert, couture and bespoke wardrobes, dinner for two at Le Jules Verne in the
