Things to do in
Singapore
Departs at 5:00 PM
Singapore is small in size but big on excitement. Discover the multicultural medley of this city-state through its neighbourhoods: Check out the statue-adorned temples of Little India and the colourful pagodas of Chinatown. Cruise to Singapore and explore the city's Malay section on the Kampong Glam Heritage Trail, which will take you past Arabic-influenced mansions and the gold-dome-topped Masjid Sultan mosque. Experience the contrast between the lush rainforest flora of the Singapore Botanic Garden and the high-tech 'supertrees' and biodomes of Gardens by the Bay. Complete your Singapore adventure with a panorama from the rooftop of the Marina Bay Sands or a Singapore Sling cocktail at the historical Raffles Hotel.
Singapore, Singapore Masjid Sultan Street View

Multicultural Medley

Singapore has four official languages and even more ethnicities that have influenced its culture. Discover the city's Muslim heritage at Sultan Mosque along Arab Street and its Chinese character (and food!) in Chinatown. Little India is the heart of the city's Tamil Indian community, while Kampong Glam is the epicentre of Malay-speaking Singapore.
Insider tip
Taxis in Singapore are plentiful, but locals increasingly use apps (namely, the 'Grab' app) to get around. Consider downloading this before you dock in Singapore.
Singapore, Singapore Gardens By The Bay Park

Two Sides of Nature

Singapore's tropical landscape is as diverse as its culture. The Singapore Botanic Garden (and adjoining Orchid Garden) approach horticulture from a more traditional perspective, while the spacey Supertrees of Gardens by the Bay would seem more at home in 'Avatar' than an issue of 'Better Homes and Gardens'.
Singapore, Singapore Marina Bay Sands Hotel

Zoom In, Zoom Out

Head to the rooftop of the massive Marina Bay Sands to enjoy a panorama of the Singapore skyline, which is also beautiful as seen from the city's symbolic Merlion statue on the other side of the bay. Or visit a more inward-looking Singapore icon when you order an original Singapore Sling cocktail at the Long Bar of the Raffles Hotel.
Singapore, Singapore Wantan Mee
Wantan Mee, popular street food noodles with bbq pork, in Singapore

Local Cuisine

The best way to get a cross-section of Singaporean cuisine is to visit its street vendors, or hawkers, in hubs like Tiong Bahru. Jump onboard a Singapore cruise to try Cantonese-derived wantan mee noodles, with dumplings and yellow egg noodles topped with slices of char siu pork. Snack on chai tow kway, also called carrot cake, even though it's made from rice flour and daikon radish fried with eggs in pork fat.
Singapore, Singapore Chopsticks

Shopping

Singapore is a shopper's paradise, whether you stick to the high-end boutiques of Orchard Road or the local shops throughout the city. One way to guarantee a special souvenir during your Singapore cruise holiday is to shop in the city's ethnic neighbourhoods: Seek out chopsticks and lacquerware in Chinatown or incense and South India dolls in Little India.

Things to do in
Kuala Lumpur
From 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Home to nearly 2 million people, Malaysia's bustling capital Kuala Lumpur is a massive city of skyscrapers and historic architecture. See the Petronas Towers, the tallest twin towers in the world, with their ultra-modern style and contrasting traditional motifs from Islamic art. Then, stroll down to KLCC Park and walk around its man-made lake and fountain backdropped by the modern skyline. Cruise to Malaysia and explore the historic side of Kuala Lumpur at the iconic Thean Hou Temple, with its red pillars, intricate carvings and decorative artifacts from Buddhist, Confucian and Tao tradition. Or see the Moorish architecture of Jamek Mosque, situated at the crossing of the Klang and Gombak rivers.
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Twin Towers

Towering Views

Admire Kuala Lumpur's skyscrapers, including the symbol of the city: the Petronas Twin Towers. Tickets to the Skybridge sell out early; it might be easier to get a ticket up to the observation deck of Menara KL Tower, which stands 1,000 feet tall. The KL Tower is also the official observation point for sighting the moon to determine the start of the holy month of Ramadan.
Insider tip
You'll find quite a lot of English spoken in Kuala Lumpur, as well as Malay, Mandarin and Tamil.
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Yellow Lantern Temple

Decorative Diversity

See some of Kuala Lumpur's older buildings too. The Sri Mahamariamman Temple is covered with Hindu statues, and Jamek Mosque is in the Moorish style (you can tour parts of the inside enter if dressed conservatively). The National Museum is beautiful, too, and has replica Malay houses inside. The intricately decorated six tiers of Thean Hou Temple are a Kuala Lumpur landmark.
Insider tip
It can rain quite often in Kuala Lumpur. Pack a rain jacket and protective gear for your camera.
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Batu Caves Buddha Entrance

Holy Spelunking

The Batu Caves, in the Kuala Lumpur suburb of Selangor, have Hindu shrines within them. You'll need to climb 272 steps to see the largest Cathedral Cave; there are several smaller caves, too. The 140-foot-tall golden statue at the entrance is Murugan, a Hindu deity.
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Satay Street Food

Local Cuisine

Kuala Lumpur is a street-food mecca. Pick up satay skewers of grilled meat in peanut sauce. Cruise to Kuala Lumpur and try Malaysia's national dish nasi lemak, coconut rice with pandan leaf, spicy sambal, cucumber slices and a choice of meat — fried chicken is a favorite option. Indulge in the flatbread dish roti canai: Enjoy it in savory form with chicken or mutton, or try the dessert version with bananas and ice cream.
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Shopping
Lanterns hung in the shopping mall of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Shopping

Kuala Lumpur is known for its excellent shopping and for having prices better than Hong Kong and Singapore. Try the downtown neighborhood of Bukit Bintang, Suria KLCC below the Petronas Towers, or Chinatown's Central Market, also called Pasar Seni. During your Kuala Lumpur cruise, look for traditional fabrics like batik and Malay brocade.

Things to do in
Penang
From 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
An island state just off the coast of northwest Malaysia, Penang is rich in diverse cultural influences thanks to its history as a trading centre between India, China, Britain and the Middle East. Head to historic George Town, the island's capital city, where bicycles and trishaws (three-wheeled, pedal-powered vehicles) dart along narrow streets lined with mural-adorned buildings and varied architecture. Cruise to Penang to step into the oldest Anglican church in Southeast Asia at St George's, or check out the Kapitan Keling Mosque. Then, take the tram up to the cooler, minty-fresh air of Penang Hill – walk through the bird sanctuary or one of the nature trails, and take in views of the city below and the mountains in the distance.

Malaysian Mansions

Make your way to the Blue Mansion, dating back to the 1880s and snap a photo from outside or take a tour of its 38 rooms. Or check out the Pinang Peranakan Museum, housed in a 19th-century mansion, where you'll see intricate Peranakan clothing, jewellery and the history of the island and people.
Insider tip
Walk carefully: Pavements are often used for motorcycle parking so it can be easier to walk on the road.
Penang, Malaysia Street Art

Neighbourhood Flavour

Walk through George Town to experience Penang's historic architecture – be sure to make frequent stops to sample the famous street food, with dishes like char koay teow, fried strips of rice cake with soya sauce, sausage and shrimp. Stroll around the UNESCO zone and check out the unique street art, often with historical or political undertones.
Insider tip
If you have time and are looking to stretch your legs, hike up Penang Hill instead of taking the tram – the trek takes about 90 minutes.
Penang, Malaysia Guanyin Goddess Buddha

Rich in Religions

Penang is rich in distinctive architecture from many of the world's religions. See the fresco-covered Dharmikarama Burmese Temple, the only Burmese temple outside of Myanmar with your cruise to Penang. Check out Taoist Kuan Yin (Goddess of Mercy) Temple – built in 1728, it's Penang's oldest religious site. Or head to Hindu Sri Mariamman Temple, covered with colourful soldiers and goddesses.
Penang, Malaysia Oyster Omelette

Penang is world-renowned for its street food. Snack on an oyster omelette, in which oysters are fried with eggs and spring onions and made crispy with rice flour. Experience the region's Indian influence with tandoori chicken and naan bread. Try Penang's signature dessert, cendol – shaved ice with coconut milk topped with palm sugar, sweet beans and green gummies made from pandan leaf jelly.
Penang, Malaysia Souvenir Shops

Phuket
Tendered from 8:00 AM - 8:00 PM
The island of Phuket (pronounced 'Poo-ket') is often called the Pearl of Thailand – and once you set foot on pristine beaches and see its crystalline blue water, you'll understand why. Cruise to Phuket, Thailand and start your day by diving right in – literally – at Kata Noi Beach, a smaller, more secluded spot where you can soak in the sun and sand and unwind. Then, head to the nearby Karon Viewpoint for unparalleled views of the Andaman Sea and the area's lush mountainous landscape. In town, see the Big Buddha of Phuket – the white marble likeness of the holy figure stands 45 metres tall. Then, see the elaborate temple of Wat Chalong and its Grand Pagoda, where it's believed a splinter of bone from the Buddha himself resides.
Phuket, Thailand Nature Exotic Ocean

Big-Screen Islands

Pha Nga Bay has several karst islands that can be explored by longtail boat, including the sheer cliffs of James Bond Island, featured in 'The Man With the Golden Gun'. Some islands are shaped like doughnuts with shallow calm water inside, only reachable at low tide. Popular Phi Phi (pronounced 'pee-pee') Island was featured in the movie 'The Beach'.
Insider tip
Negotiate carefully for transportation on longtail boats and taxis – writing down the agreed upon price can prevent disputes.
Phuket, Thailand Snorkeling
Snorkeling at Phi Phi Island, Phuket, Thailand

Get Underwater

The waters surrounding Phuket have great snorkelling and scuba diving, thanks to the bay's warm, clean waters and lively marine ecosystems. Snorkel off the beach at Ao Sane, next to Nai Harn Beach, at Kata Noi or near Patong at Paradise Beach. Drift past anemones, parrot fish and various types of coral.
Insider tip
Wat Chalong Temple is an active place of worship: Cover your shoulders while inside as a gesture of respect.
Phuket, Thailand Big Buddha Statue Temple Monastery

Big Buddha

Above Nakkerd Hills is a 48-metre-tall white Buddha statue, which you can see from many parts of the island – hike up to the statue itself, which is surprisingly uncrowded. It's covered in Burmese white jade marble, and next to it is a smaller Buddha made from brass. The trek also comes with the bonus of breathtaking views down to the sea.
Phuket, Thailand Colorful Thai Food
Colorful thai food in bowls with shrimp pad thai and bowls of rice

Local Cuisine

Sample Thailand's famous cuisine at street stalls or sit-down restaurants. If you're not sure what to order, ask for pad kra prao – stir-fried meat (usually chicken or pork) prepared with chilli peppers and Thai holy basil. The level of spiciness can be tailored to your taste, and adding in a fried egg is optional – though highly recommended.
Phuket, Thailand Buddha Souvenirs
Traditional buddha souvenirs sold in Thailand

Shopping

Silks are always a good buy in Thailand; choose from scarves in every colour, pillowcases or clothing. Cruise to Phuket and pick up a carved elephant in wood, metal or stone. At home, place it facing a doorway for good feng shui.
