Asia & The Far East
An Asia cruise combine a richly fascinating past; an enthralling, exhilarating present and the most mind-bogglingly incredible future – treat yourself to a taste of all that on our amazing Far East and Asia cruises.
Vibrant cities, ancient sights and colourful cultures: Asia travel is both a rewarding and immersive experience. Cruises in Asia and the Far East take in some of the world’s most mind-bogglingly futuristic metropolises. Visit beguiling Beijing to explore the switchback alleyways of the city’s historic hutongs, or embark on Beijing tours to the Great Wall of China, the Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven or the infamous Tiananmen Square. Sail into Shanghai and you’ll be in the buzzing heart of the city’s glittering tech centre among the soaring towers of the Bund; but step away from the neon-lit skyline and you’ll find the peaceful French Concession – a little slice of Paris in Asia. Hong Kong continues its reign as one of the world’s best food destinations, so embark on a Hong Kong cruise and take your taste buds on an adventure, too. In Japan, leave the bustle of tech-heaven Tokyo behind and sail to Okinawa Island, where beautiful beaches await, before you cruise Asia and call at Singapore.
Cruises from Singapore are the gateway to the Far East, Arabian Gulf or even India; dock at Cochin and you could sail the Kerala backwaters, an unspoilt part of this exciting subcontinent. Singapore is packed with shops, restaurants and bars; Singapore cruises can take you to other ports in Malaysia, such as Kuala Lumpur, or to the incense-swirled temples and soft sandy beaches of Thailand and beyond.
