Departing 04 Apr 19
Experience a magical rail journey to remember followed by a luxury cruise to some of Asia’s most spectacular ports.
Your holiday begins with an overnight stay in Bangkok, Thailand’s colourful and vibrant capital, where you’ll board the Eastern and Oriental Express for your rail journey to Singapore. Watch as the city streets turn to rolling countryside while encased in absolute luxury, indulging in delicious on board cuisine, crafted by internationally renowned chefs, and sipping flutes of champagne as you relax in the Observation Car. Attentive and discreet staff will see to your every whim, ensuring your journey is truly relaxing and all about you. You’ll also enjoy a choice of immersive tours, including guided visits to the River Kwai Bridge, biking through rice paddies or uncovering the flavours of Thailand. Travelling through Malaysia you’ll enjoy tours in Kuala Kangsar on your way to Singapore where you’ll disembark for an overnight stay, a city famed for its mouth-watering street food and futuristic skyline.
It’s here that you’ll embark Oceania’s Nautica, an elegant ship with spacious rooms, cosy lounges and attentive staff. Whether you’re after a cool cocktail in the bar or a treatment in the sleek spa, you’ll want for nothing during your cruise.
Sail first to Kuala Lumpur, a sprawling cultural capital dominated by the glittering Petronas Towers, before reaching Penang’s golden sands. In Thailand’s Phuket you’ll find ornate temples and national parks, where dramatic cliffs adorned with greenery dip down into crystal clear waters, before two nights in Myanmar await. Here you’ll visit Yangon, an exotic city where monks wander the streets and towering pagodas pierce the sky. Don’t miss a visit to Shwedagon Paya, the beautiful 325ft tall zedi adorned with gold leaf simply has to be seen to be believed. In India, you’ll discover colonial charms in Cochin, spicy seafood dishes in Mangalore, paradise-like shorelines in Goa and futuristic architecture in Mumbai. After a few days at sea you’ll greet the rugged mountains of Fujairah and the glittering city in the desert, Dubai, where you’ll disembark and fly home.
