About This Destination

Thanks to its warm climate, this region is the perfect option for a winter cruise if you’re hoping to escape the chill. The exciting urban life of famous Far East cities like Beijing, Bangkok, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Singapore give way to the spectacularly serene beauty of islands like Koh Samui, Bali and Borneo. What’s more, guests will enjoy exploring less-discovered ports of call in countries like Myanmar, Indonesia and the Philippines, like Yangon, Jakarta and Manilla.

Alternatively, a river cruise is a great way for travellers to delve deeper into those destinations, which are a bit more off the beaten track. The Mekong River flows through Vietnam and Cambodia, allowing cruise guests fantastic access to sites like the famous Angkor Wat as well as a closer look at local cultures and rural life. The Yangtse 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 Myanmar is finding its way into more and more river cruise schedules, with itineraries incorporating visits to Bagan and Mandalay.
