India

Not many destinations inspire the senses quite like India. An enigmatic clash of colours, smells, sounds and flavours, a journey to India will captivate you with its deep-rooted culture and bucket-list landmarks. This country pulses with energy from its loud and fast-paced cities to its vibrant traditions, however, you’ll also find peace and spirituality in its many temples and shrines. A visit to India's Golden Triangle region leaves long-lasting impressions and enduring memories that last a lifetime. Filled with Mughal architecture like the majestic Taj Mahal and Jaipur's pink-hued masterpieces, India is a place that inspires awe in all who go there.

Japan

Japan offers a window into a world of amazing contrasts. Here you’ll find the home of cutting-edge technology and ancient temples where people flock to share a peaceful moment. Here pristine gardens showcasing the beauty of nature sit in the shadows of soaring steel-clad skyscrapers, and the delicate and fragile beauty of cherry blossom in the spring months is flooded by neon light as the sun goes down. Hop on a high speed bullet train, sample sushi from a conveyor belt, soak in an open air hot spring and find the best spots to photograph Mount Fuji – a cruise to Japan is full of surprises.

China

Tumultuous history, cosmopolitan cities, ancient wonders; China’s many facets will amaze and enthral you. It’s a destination of rich traditions and cutting-edge technology, of gleaming skyscrapers and grand palaces – its contrasts are nothing short of jaw-dropping.

One thing's for sure, you'll be awe-struck by monumental achievements of the dynastic emperors that once ruled this land enchanting part of the world.

Hong Kong

Asia’s most cosmopolitan city, Hong Kong’s high end cocktail bars, Michelin star restaurants and boutique shopping offers an irresistible draw for anyone looking for a taste of the high life. However, scratch beneath the surface and you’ll find there are many layers to this East Asian city. Hong Kong was dominated by the British Empire from the 1800s to the 1930s, a time that has left indelible influences on its structure and culture. However it has never forgotten its Chinese roots and the two cultures have become intertwined to create a city that is truly one of a kind. Visit the dynamic Stanley Market where shoppers will find an unparalleled selection of bargains and hidden treasures, or Victoria Park for spectacular views of the harbour.

Singapore

Welcome to Singapore, where east meets west, food is a passion and shopping is almost an art form. This exciting city of exotic fusions and contrasts is easy to explore during your time here. Go back to Singapore’s roots with a visit to Chinatown where you’ll find Buddhist, Taoist and Hindu temples side by side, before heading to the futuristic Marina Bay Sands area with its luxury shopping mall and iconic Skypark for panoramic views across the city.

Indonesia

A country with over 17,000 islands – it’s no surprise that Indonesia is bursting with diversity. From it’s booming capital Jakarta, to Komodo with it’s nature filled national park, laced with walking trails and home to the world’s largest lizard, the Komodo dragon; Indonesia lends itself exceptionally well to cruise travel. Discover dazzling white sands and smouldering peaks in Lombok and the Gili Islands, and search for playful indigenous orangutans in Sumatra. And who could forget Bali? The jewel in Indonesia’s crown has vistas that are worthy of poetry with its rolling paddy fields, spotless beaches and amazing volcanic mountains.
