Itinerary

03/04/20

Singapore (Singapore): Steeped in its colonial past, the Lion City of Sir Stamford Raffles is one of the most exciting cities in the East and provides an opportunity to visit the alleyways of Chinatown, a Hindu Temple, Sentosa Island, the world renowned botanical gardens, Jurong Bird Park and Orchard Road. Don’t forget to treat yourself to a Singapore Sling at the famous Raffles Hotel.

04/04/20

Port Klang for Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia): The British made Kuala Lumpur the capital of Peninsular Malaysia in the late 19th century, erecting grand colonial buildings that continue to stand proudly today. Since then, a virtual ‘race to the sky’ has seen the graceful buildings and mosques surrounded by steel and glass towers. As well as museums and temples to visit, there’s an elephant sanctuary and rainforest canopy walk.

05/04/20

Penang (Malaysia): The ‘jewel in the crown’ of Malaysia, Penang is linked to the mainland by one of the longest bridges in the world. George Town, the best-preserved city in Southeast Asia, boasts a European-style esplanade and a wealth of temples, mosques and Chinese clan houses. This paradise island has no shortage of cultural sights and natural scenery.

Colombo (Sri Lanka): Sri Lanka’s capital is a delightful concoction of past and present. Its busy, man-made harbour, from which tea, spices and rubber are exported, stands side-by-side with historical museums and monuments. Colombo offers an array of charms, from the Royal Botanical Gardens to the Pettah Bazaar.

Cochin for optional overland tour to Taj Mahal (India): Beautifully situated in Kerala, Cochin has been drawing traders and explorers to its shores for over 600 years. If you’re not tempted by an overland excursion to Delhi or Agra and the Taj Mahal, take in some of Cochin’s fascinating cultural legacy, which includes a synagogue, churches, mosques, temples and the crumbling remains of the British Raj. Don’t miss the Mattancherry Palace or a stroll along the lovely beach, scattered with unique Chinese fishing nets.

Aqaba for Petra (Jordan): The port of Aqaba has been an important strategic and commercial centre since Roman times. It presents the opportunity to visit the lost city of Petra, which lies in the surrounding desert - a city that is estimated to date back to 6,000 B.C. - and Wadi Rum, where T.E. Lawrence found his destiny as ‘Lawrence of Arabia’.
