The Far East is made up of many lands of contrast and mystery - adding to its exciting allure. The Orient has for centuries lured travellers to uncover its beauty and secrets. Cruising is a wonderful way to see the region which extends from Singapore through to Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and Hong Kong. Ancient temples, great Buddha statues, bustling cities, spectacular beaches, jungles and fabulous shopping are just some of the experiences to be enjoyed.
A variety of cruise ships are based in the region, predominantly in Singapore, offering year round cruises. Most cruises sail the Straits of Malacca to Thailand or across the South China Sea to Vietnam and China.
Best Time to Cruise
Cruises are available year round in the region as weather in the south east is warm all year round. Expect showers in the monsoon period between June and September. Cruises to China and Japan tend to be in the northern spring (March to May).
