Asia & Far East

Asia & Far East

For centuries travellers have been drawn to Asia and the Far East and today this captivating destination still offers boundless possibilities, particularly if you combine your cruise with a pre or post cruise land based hotel stay.

Fascinating cultures, friendly welcomes and a tremendous variety of natural landscapes will satisfy your hunger for the exceptional and exotic. The close proximity of so many countries sitting shoulder to shoulder gives for a diversity you'd be hard pressed to find cruising any other region.

Cities like Beijing, Bangkok, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Singapore migle with those less discovered like Yangon, Ho Chi Minh City and Jakarta. The beautiful islands of Koh Samui, Bali and Borneo are being joined by more remote ports of call in Vietnam, Indonesia and the Philippines. China and Myanmar (Burma) are also both destinations that can now be more easily discovered on a cruise.

A destination is often best experienced from the following waters of a river. River cruising is really booming into the region too, giving travellers a great way to delve deeper into those destinations that are a bit more off the beaten track. The Mekong river flows through Vietnam and Cambodia offering visitor's easy access to Angkor Wat and Phnom Penh and the Yangtze in China stretches 4,000 miles from the Tibetan plateau through dramatic gorges to Shanghai and into the South China Sea. The Irrawaddy River in Burma is finding its way into more and more river cruise schedules with many itineraries incorporating visits to Bagan and Mandalay.

Thanks to its warm climate this region is the perfect option for a winter cruise for those wanting to escape the chill.
