Asia Travel Guide

Asia Cruises Highlights

  • Singapore: This city-state is a world-famous port, promising an array of experiences. Marvel at the futuristic Gardens by the Bay or explore the vibrant neighborhoods like Little India and Chinatown. The port itself boasts top-notch facilities, making your stay comfortable from the moment you disembark.
  • Hong Kong: A dazzling skyline greets you as you approach one of Asia's most dynamic cities. From shopping at high-end stores to enjoying street food, the cultural fusion here is palpable. Don't miss the Star Ferry's iconic harbor crossing and, of course, the view from Victoria Peak.
  • Shanghai: Where tradition meets modernity, the Bund is a testament to Shanghai's colonial past, while the soaring skyscrapers of Pudong represent its future. The Yuyuan Garden offers respite from the buzz with its serene pavilions and ponds.
  • Tokyo (Yokohama): Technically, in Yokohama, it's a gateway to Tokyo's rich culture. Visit ancient shrines, explore the Tsukiji Fish Market, or take in the electric atmosphere of Shibuya. Back in Yokohama, enjoy the seaside Minato Mirai district with its museums, amusement parks, and malls.
  • Bali (Benoa): The port of Benoa is your entrance to Bali's natural wonders. Visit terraced rice fields, tranquil temples, and, of course, stunning beaches. Water sports abound, and the cultural dances are a must-see.
  • The Great Wall of China (Beijing): An awe-inspiring feat of ancient defensive architecture. Its winding path over rugged country and steep mountains takes in some great scenery. It's a testament to Chinese civilization's resilience and ingenuity.
  • Petronas Twin Towers (Kuala Lumpur): These 88-floor towers, the tallest twin structures worldwide, embody Malaysia's aim to be recognized globally. They feature postmodern architecture and Islamic designs and offer an awe-inspiring view of the cityscape.
  • Angkor Wat (Siem Reap): The world's largest religious monument, this temple complex is a significant archaeological site featuring detailed stone carvings and stunning architecture. It's a symbol of Cambodia's Hindu and Buddhist culture.
  • Mount Fuji (Near Tokyo): Japan's highest mountain is beloved for its symmetry and sacred status. An active volcano, it's visible from Tokyo on a clear day. For many, climbing to the summit at sunrise, known as "Goraiko," is a spiritual experience.
  • Taj Mahal (Agra): A mausoleum commissioned for the Mughal ruler's favorite wife, this UNESCO site is an enduring symbol of India's rich history. Its unique beauty encapsulates a tale of love and grief, expressed through architectural precision and lush gardens.
  • Ha Long Bay (Hanoi): Renowned for its emerald waters and thousands of towering limestone islands topped with rainforests. Junk boat tours and sea kayak expeditions take visitors past islands named for their shapes.

Asia Cruises Travel Tips

  • The weather in Southeast Asia mainly can get extremely humid no matter the time of year. Make sure you pack light clothing, especially if you plan on exploring during the day.
  • Speaking of weather, the sun is almost always out. You'll want to bring sunscreen and a hat or sunglasses to protect your skin.
  • Always have cash on you when traveling in Asia. The majority of places will not accept cards, and if they do, there's usually a hefty fee associated with it.
  • Most places in Asia will only have squat toilets, though some countries have more Westernized toilets.
  • Buses in Asia tend to always run late. This is because, unlike elsewhere globally, the bus will wait until it is full to leave and go to the destination.
  • Don't drink the tap water while you're in Asia. Instead, purchase water bottles from local convenience stores for safety reasons.
  • When eating street food, the best way to gauge safety is how busy a stall is. Generally, the more busy a booth is, the less likely the chance is that it will cause you issues.
  • Regarding safety, it's wise to stay informed about the areas you'll be visiting. Keep a copy of your travel documents in a secure, accessible place, and be aware of your surroundings, particularly in crowded areas. Don't forget to notify your bank about your travel plans to avoid any issues with currency exchanges or card transactions.
  • It's crucial to respect the diverse cultures you'll encounter. This means being mindful of local customs, such as removing shoes before entering someone's home or certain sacred spaces and familiarizing yourself with basic phrases in the local languages of your destinations. A simple "hello" or "thank you" can go a long way!

Asia Cruises Things To Do

  • Visit the iconic Taj Mahal
    Visit the iconic Taj Mahal

    The Taj Mahal is a 17th-century mausoleum that is made of white marble. It was built by an emperor named Shah Jahan for his late wife and is considered one of the most breathtaking architectural pieces in the entire world. The outside of the building is truly unique. There are elaborate decorations in the form of carvings all around its exterior. The inside is just as intricate and gorgeous. Be on the lookout for the archways, the metalwork, and the paintings throughout.

    You Should Know

    There is a time limit when you visit the Taj Mahal, which is usually 3 hours. Use your time wisely!. To enter the Taj Mahal, you must dress modestly. Usually, everyone should have at least their shoulders and knees covered. This isn't strictly enforced but is what's seen as most appropriate. When you enter, you'll be given shoe coverings you must wear while visiting.  
  • Explore Angkor Wat
    Explore Angkor Wat

    Angkor Wat is a massive Hindu temple located on 402 acres of land. Because of its enormous size, it's one of the largest religious buildings and monuments worldwide. It was built in the 12th century and is located in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Angkor Wat is dedicated to Vishnu, the Hindu god who protects the universe. It was abandoned for an unknown reason during the 15th century, though most historians believe that it was due to a hurricane or other natural disaster. Despite its age, Angkor Wat is still mostly intact today and is an absolute must-visit when traveling to Asia.

    You Should Know

    Wear sturdy walking shoes. Because Angkor Wat is massive, your feet may hurt by the end of exploring. Plus, you may have to do some climbing!. To avoid crowds and get the perfect photo of Angkor Wat, visit right at 5 a.m.  
  • See history in Petra
    See history in Petra

    Petra is one of the most world-famous archaeological sites located in Jordan. It was built back in 300 BC and consists of buildings, temples, and other structures carved into rocks. It's often called the "Rock City" and served as the Nabatean Kingdom's capital. The most popular place to visit in Petra is a temple called Al Khazneh. It's also referred to as The Treasury. Petra is truly one of the world's marvels and is truly impressive. If you visit Asia, check out Petra - it's not every day that you can see a city built into the sides of a rock!

    You Should Know

    The best (and safest) way to explore Petra is to go with a local guide. Stay at a hotel nearby to get the most of your day when you visit Petra.  
  • View the jaw-dropping Chocolate Hills
    View the jaw-dropping Chocolate Hills

    The Chocolate Hills are located in the Philippines. They're a gorgeous geological formation made up of around 1,800 hills! The hills are generally green throughout the year, but when the country sees less rain, they turn brown, which is why they are called the Chocolate Hills. This genuinely unique landscape covers over 1,000 acres of land, so you can see Chocolate Hills for as far as your eye can see. Though they may look human-made, they are entirely natural, which only adds to their allure. It's said that the hills were formed due to limestone moving throughout the years and weather and erosion that occurred here.

    Best Time To Visit

    To avoid the crowds, you'll want to visit either right in the morning or late at night.    
  • Walk part of the Great Wall of China
    Walk part of the Great Wall of China

    The Great Wall of China is a fortification and popular place to visit that runs on around 13,000 miles. The wall's construction began in 221 BC under Emperor Qin Shi Huang, though it has gone through a few restoration periods since then. Most people who helped to build the wall, at the time, were either felons or soldiers. If you were to walk the Great Wall of China from beginning to end, it would take around 18 months. That's why visitors often opt to walk just a small portion of this wall, one of the 7 Wonders of the World.

    You Should Know

    Some sections of the Great Wall of China are considerably steep. It's best to research to find which part of the wall is best for your athletic abilities before visiting.  
  • Get breathtaking views from the Burj Khalifa
    Get breathtaking views from the Burj Khalifa

    The Burj Khalifa is a 163-floor skyscraper in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE). It is the tallest skyscraper in the world, standing at 2,722 feet! It was built in 2009 and is an architectural marvel; it indeed looks like something futuristic. Visitors are now welcome to visit the Burj Khalifa and see some of its amazing views from the observation decks. Prices range depending on which floor's observation deck you opt to book. There is also the Al Shindagha Museum, Eithad Museum, and Dubai Fountain in the building.

    You Should Know

    If you plan on doing anything inside the Burj Khalifa, you'll want to book it well in advance.  
  • See Mount Fuji
    See Mount Fuji

    Mount Fuji is a breathtaking active volcano located in Japan. Though it's still active, it last erupted back in 1707. It stands at around 12,388 feet, and many locals refer to it as Fuji-San. There are many places throughout Japan to get breathtaking views of the mountain. Some of these spots include lookout platforms (like Koyo-Dai and Sanko-Dai) or the Fuji Five Lakes. If you visit Tokyo, it's only a short drive to get a great view of Mount Fuji!

    You Should Know

    You can also climb Mount Fuji, but this is best done during the summer months. It's considered an easy climb for advanced hikers though it can be quite steep.  
  • Relax on the beaches in Bali
    Relax on the beaches in Bali

    Bali is one of Indonesia's most well-known islands for its breathtaking beaches, temples, and mountains. There are many resort towns here, in addition to retreats, so it's truly the best place to come to relax. Some of the best places to visit the beach in Bali include Kuta, Jimbaran, and Canggu. Lovina Beach is also gorgeous and has a waterfall and hot springs that look like paradise on earth. No matter what beach you visit, you're bound to have a fantastic time.

    You Should Know

    It's not safe to drink the tap water, so make sure you purchase bottled water. If you want a cheap massage, Bali is the place to do it!  

Asia Cruise Packages

Quick Facts

Generally speaking, the best time to visit Asia is during the winter months, though it's truly a great destination at any time of year. However, keep in mind that some times of the year are a lot warmer and humid!. The majority of people visit Asia during the winter, so the summer is the low season in Asia!. Asia's shoulder seasons are the spring and fall.

  • Getting There

    Embarking on an Asian cruise adventure begins with understanding the vastness of this continent. Asia's extensive coastline offers numerous ports, each serving as a gateway to new experiences.

    Major cruise lines typically set sail from global hubs like Singapore, Hong Kong, or Tokyo due to their state-of-the-art port facilities, making them accessible and convenient starting points for travelers. These cities are well-connected to international airports, making your journey to the cruise terminal a breeze.

    Once aboard, prepare for a seamless voyage; modern cruise amenities meet the high seas as you travel from one exotic Asian locale to another, each with its unique heritage waiting to be explored. It's the mix of ease and excitement that makes an Asian cruise a journey like no other.

  • The Perfect Time for an Asian Cruise

    Cruising in Asia presents an opportunity to explore a continent of vast climatic diversity, and the ideal time for your cruise largely depends on your chosen destinations. In Southeast Asia, the preferred cruising season stretches from November to April. This period allows cruisers to enjoy the sun and avoid the monsoon rains, experiencing the region's pleasant temperatures, which are perfect for seaside adventures and cultural excursions. East Asia, with its four distinct seasons, offers its best cruising experiences in spring (April to June) and autumn (September to November). These months provide mild weather and picturesque landscapes, enhancing the cruising experience whether you're exploring the bustling cities or tranquil countryside.

    For those seeking a more serene experience with fewer crowds, cruising during the off-peak seasons is worth considering. This option offers the chance to peacefully cruise through the winter wonderlands of Japan or bask in the tranquility of Thailand's beaches in late spring, well away from the usual tourist rush. Cruising in these quieter periods allows for a more relaxed exploration of Asia's diverse landscapes and cultures. However, it's important to note that certain times, such as the Chinese New Year, can significantly increase travel and impact tourist hotspots throughout Asia, even during cruising adventures.

    Ultimately, the best time for an Asian cruise hinges on your personal preferences. Whether you're seeking sunshine, looking to avoid heavy tourist traffic, or eager to participate in regional festivals, Asia offers a range of options. From witnessing the delicate beauty of cherry blossoms to being part of vibrant lantern festivals, your ideal cruising time in Asia will align your interests with the continent's varied seasonal offerings, ensuring a memorable and fulfilling cruise experience.  

  • Why Book a Cruise to Asia?

    Opting for a cruise to Asia isn't just a holiday; it's choosing to embrace diversity without the hassle of constant travel planning. These cruises offer incredible value for money, providing accommodation, transportation, and world-class cuisine in one package, all while floating to multiple exotic destinations. Imagine the convenience of unpacking once and waking up in a new port of call, from the neon skyline of Tokyo to the serene beaches of Thailand.

    What's more, the coastal journey itself is mesmerizing. The routes carve through regions otherwise unseen, offering unique vantage points of famous landmarks and hidden gems. Additionally, cruise lines often arrange exclusive shore excursions, giving passengers access to experiences not available to the typical tourist. Whether it's a private tour in Singapore's Gardens by the Bay or a reserved spot in a Korean cooking class, these curated activities are designed to immerse you in all that Asia has to offer.

  • Experience the Flavors of Asia

    One of the unmissable adventures of any Asian cruise is the opportunity to indulge in the region's diverse cuisines. From the sizzling street food stalls in Bangkok to the refined dining experiences in Tokyo, your taste buds are in for a treat. Imagine relishing fresh sushi, its origins rooted in Japan, or the aromatic spices of authentic Indian curries, each dish telling a story of its heritage.

    Don't miss out on sampling dim sum in Hong Kong or pho in Vietnam, each bite offering a unique insight into the area's culture and history. For a memorable experience, visit local markets or sign up for a cooking class available through your cruise's excursion options. Here, you'll not only taste these exquisite dishes but also learn the secrets behind preparing them. Dive into these culinary experiences, and you'll understand why food is such an integral part of Asia's charm!

  • Immerse Yourself in Asian Culture

    Embarking on an Asian cruise is more than a vacation; it's a leap into the profound depths of diverse cultures. Across different ports of call, you'll encounter a spectrum of customs, from the tranquil tea ceremonies in Japan to the vibrant, colorful festivals like Diwali in India or the Lunar New Year, celebrated in several Asian countries with fireworks, parades, and familial gatherings.

    The region's traditions are a dialogue between the past and present, offering visitors rare glimpses into centuries-old practices, such as meditation in a Thai temple or participating in traditional K-pop dances in South Korea. Each country presents its unique heritage with opportunities to engage: perhaps take a calligraphy class, attend a traditional puppetry show, or witness the solemn beauty of religious ceremonies. These immersive experiences will weave the rich cultural fabric of Asia into your memories forever.
