If you’re bringing the whole family on board, there’s no shortage of fun to suit all ages on days at port. Glide through Bangkok’s floating markets on a traditional boat, explore the night safaris and animal attractions in Singapore, and be sure to drop into Hong Kong Disneyland which is sure to be a hit. Families will also love slashing about in calm bays in around Lawgkawi and exploring the fascinating Forbidden City in Beijing.
Romance abounds in every corner of beautiful Asia, from Mumbai to Osaka. Couples will no doubt love soaking up the relaxed vibes of Koh Samui, a popular honeymoon destination. But you could also fire up the romance at a glamorous spa in Seoul, over a delicious meal at a rooftop restaurant in Tokyo, or with a sunset picnic on the Indian shores of Cochin.
Asia is a great place to get around as there are always heaps of options. The most famous Asian cities, such as Hong Kong, Bangkok and Singapore, have fantastic public transport. Wherever you go, taxis are always easy to find and some places have the added convenience of tuk tuks and rickshaws. Guided tours are regularly offered on board though, which provide a great way to see the top sights on limited time.
Different countries have different customs and traditions around Asia, so it’s always a good idea to read up on the local etiquette before you arrive. As a general rule for the area, travellers should always be polite and show respect for elders, and never touch someone on the head.
