Cruises are the best way to witness the world

A guide to some of the most luxurious cruising destinations that Asia has to offer

In contrast to the summery Caribbean destinations, which most tourists prefer for a cruise trip, Asia comes off as a distant alternative. However, some of the most exotic islands and breath-taking destinations are nestled in the Far East. With a unique blend of cosmopolitan cities and rich colonial history, Asia makes a compelling case for the go-to-destination for cruise trips. This article lists some of the best cruises in an around Asia.

Southeast Asia Cruises

Explore the wonders of Southeast Asia

Cruises to the Southeast side include destinations such as Hong Kong and Singapore. They also include stops at Bangkok in Thailand and Ho Chi Minh City and Da Nang in Vietnam. You’ll discover mysterious ruins, towering temples, serene gardens and delectable cuisine when journeying through the beautiful lands of Southeast Asia. You must choose from 10 to 14 night cruises or 7 night cruises to explore the wonders of Southeast Asia.

Far East Asia Cruises

Discover the exotic allure of Far East Asia

East Asia is defined within the cruise industry as Japan, China and Korea, which still holds an air of mystery for many Indians. Stops include ports in the China Sea along the Yangtze River. You can easily enjoy 4-9 night cruises from Tokyo with port stops throughout Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and other spots in China. Besides, 10-14 day cruises will cover Japan, the Japanese islands, and even Vladivostok, Russia.

China and Russia Cruises

Vladivostok, Russia

While cruises in East Asia touch upon a few ports in China and Russia, yet both these nations have so much to offer that you might consider visiting them as individual cruise destinations. Cruising through the China Sea and between the bamboo groves and limestone pinnacles of the mighty Yangtze is enough to captivate your senses. If that doesn’t sound exciting to you, the port of Vladivostok and Sakhalin will truly mesmerise you.

Cruise Liners

Now that we have mentioned the top destinations, let’s look at some of the top cruise liners that operate Asian cruise trips.

  • Crystal Serenity: Wildly extravagant with a price tag to match its name, the Crystal Serenity is Asian cruising for high-rollers and profligates.
