Travel with us along the stunningly beautiful coastline of south eastern China. Our cruise is one of contrasts

Travel with us along the stunningly beautiful coastline of south eastern China. Our cruise is one of contrasts. As the Pacific Rim becomes the economic powerhouse of the world, we’ll see evidence of this in the 21st century metropolises of Hong Kong and Singapore. We will also see many splendid Buddhist temples. There are palm-lined sandy beaches and neon-lit thoroughfares, architectural wonders of the 21st century and memories of the colonial eras. Our journey then takes us down to Vietnam where we discover the spectacular scenery and diverse culture of this land of ‘friendship and smiles’ much of which is still unsullied from the type of commercialisation one experiences in more developed countries.

Our unique shore walks and excursions include:

Hong Kong - Visit the major city sights, including the Big Buddha and Po Lin Monastery, visit Repulse Bay, Aberdeen and ride on the famous Star Ferry. We’ll also ride the steep tram to the heights of Victoria Peak, and visit Lantau Island which boasts breathtaking scenery.

Da Nang, Vietnam - In Hoi An Ancient City, meander winding streets of the Ancient Quarter, see the Japanese Covered Bridge and Pagodas, and take time for lunch to admire picturesque scenery.

Ha Long Bay, Vietnam - Today we cruise to UNESCO World Heritage Site of ‘The Bay of the Descending Dragons’. We’ll visit Dao Tung Lam Bay and the Ga Choi Islands, followed by a stop at Paradise Cave, the largest cave in Ha Long Bay containing stalactites and stalagmites formed over millions of years.

Nha Trang, Vietnam - Our city tour includes the Vietnam Oceanographic Institute, Long Son Pagoda, Nha Trang Cathedral and Po Nagar Temple ending at Dam Market.

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam - With a local guide, we visit the Central Post Office, Notre Dame Cathedral, Reunification Palace and War Remnants Museum and make our way to Bitexco Tower, the city’s tallest building. Next day we head out to the countryside of Saigon, stop at a cricket farm, considered a delicacy by the locals, and then make our way to the Cu Chi Tunnels, the infamous underground tunnel network used by Viet Cong soldiers.

Singapore - We tour around the Gardens by the Bay, to peer up at Cloud Forest’s indoor waterfall and walk to the Supertree Grove. Then explore downtown Singapore on a bumboat before experiencing vibrant and colourful Chinatown and Little India.

Phuket - Explore the fascinating blend of Chinese and Portuguese culture, architecture, colourful streets and buildings. We visit Thai Hua Museum, and enjoy a traditional Thai lunch.
