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 neighborhoods: Check out the statue-adorned temples of Little India and the colorful 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 epicenter of Malay-speaking Singapore.
Insider tip
Taxis in Singapore are plentiful, but locals increasingly use applications (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
Colorful variety of chopsticks in a small shop in Chinatown, Singapore

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 vacation is to shop in the city's ethnic neighborhoods: Seek out chopsticks and lacquerware in Chinatown or incense and South India dolls in Little India.

Ho Chi Minh City
From 7:00 AM - 8:00 PM
Officially named Ho Chi Minh City in 1976 to celebrate the reunification of Vietnam, many in the country's largest city still call it Saigon, especially when talking about the city center. Cruise to Vietnam to get to know the immense, bustling metropolis that is HCMC, as its commonly abbreviated, by visiting Cholon (Chinatown) in District 5 — wander its narrow streets and picturesque pagodas, and step foot in the incense-filled Thien Hau Temple. Then, fill up on spicy beef noodles at Ben Thanh market. See the massive dragon carpet inside Independence Palace, the former home of South Vietnam's president before reunification, or learn more about what the Vietnamese call the American War at the War Remnants Museum.
Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam Elephant Garden

Escape the Traffic

Saigon's one million motorbikes don't make for calm explorations, but you can escape the fray at the 130-year-old Saigon Zoo and Botanical Gardens. Wander the vast green park with its bonsai trees and orchid collection, and check out elephants and tigers in the zoo.
Insider tip
Crossing the street in Vietnam is not for the timid. But just keep a steady pace with no sudden moves and traffic will weave effortlessly around you.
Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam Remembrance Musem

The War Remnants Museum in District 3 has immaculate tanks and planes outside, as well as sobering exhibits detailing the realities of the war. Note it's closed for an hour and a half starting at noon. Outside town, visit the Cu Chi Tunnels to learn how the Viet Cong moved underground.
Insider tip
Always be clear whether you're negotiating for prices in Vietnamese dong or U.S. dollars. Double-check when paying with dong, as some bills of vastly different denominations look similar.
Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam Financial Tower

During your Vietnam cruise, feast on a banh mi sandwich, which integrates Vietnam's French colonial past with pork, pickled vegetables and herbs on a crusty baguette. Or try banh tam bi, thick noodles with pork in a coconut cream sauce.
Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam Souvenir Lacquer Bowls

Shopping

Lacquerware, in the form of bowls, trays and vases, is a popular souvenir in Vietnam. You'll see it everywhere, but head for the An Dong Market, Binh Tay Market and Ben Thanh Market. Dong Khoi Street is considered the main shopping street with a mall and the Parkson Department Store.

Hue / Danang
From 7:00 AM - 8:00 PM
When you arrive at Chan May Port, you'll have Vietnam's imperial history and natural splendor at your fingertips. As you travel through the countryside near the port, you'll see fields of grazing water buffalo and lagoons overlooked by misty mountains. But you'll want to spend your day exploring one of the two nearby cities: Hue and Danang. About 80 minutes north of the port, Hue was Vietnam's capital city until 1945: Experience the country's imperial past at the moat-surrounded citadel of Hue Imperial City, or see the Khai Dinh Tomb, an emperor's resting place high up in the mountains. Cruise to Chan May, Vietnam and head one hour south to Danag: Relax on white-sand My Khe Beach, or hike up the Marble Mountains dotted with Buddhist temples.
Hue, Danang, Chan May, Vietnam Citadel World Heritage Site

City Citadel

The last emperor of Vietnam gave up his throne for Ho Chi Minh's communist government in 1945. Since 1802, his family ruled the country from Hue, and you can visit what remains of the Imperial Citadel. It's being restored after damage by the French in 1947 and the Americans in the 1968 Tet Offensive. The city's imposing gates, halls and moat give a peek into imperial life of old.
Insider tip
Look for fair-trade shops, where sales help families in need and nonprofit charities.
Hue, Danang, Chan May, Vietnam Statues of Warriors

Emperors of Old

In Hue, you can find the ancient tombs of the emperors along the Perfume River. The tomb of Tu Duc was designed to be used by the emperor when he was still alive, as well as after death. You'll see pavilions, elephant statues, thrones and other royal artifacts. Or head to Khai Dinh Tomb, with its European-influenced design inspired by Khai Dinh's travels to France.
Insider tip
When shopping, focus on handmade local items — most luxury brands you find from street vendors aren't the real deal.
Hue, Danang, Chan May, Vietnam Majestic Giant White Buddha

Guardians of Danang

In Danang, visit China Beach for a swim or a walk. You'll see Lady Buddha, Vietnam's tallest statue, guarding over the city and its fishermen at the Son Tra Linh Ungh pagoda. Cruise to Vietnam to get up close to Danang's guardian dragon by walking across the Dragon Bridge — it breathes fire and water on Saturday and Sunday nights.
Hue, Danang, Chan May, Vietnam Vietnamese Pho

Local Cuisine

Banh beo is a traditional dish in both Danang and Hue — these steamed rice cakes are served in small bowls and topped with shrimp, mung bean paste and scallions. Dip them in salty fish sauce. Or seek out banh khaoi, a crispy crepe stuffed with savory pork belly and shrimp.
Hue, Danang, Chan May, Vietnam Bamboo Hats
Traditional bamboo hats are common souvenirs while shopping in Vietnam

Shopping

Conical Vietnamese hats, called non bai tho, are available all over Vietnam. In Hue, hat makers often put poems and drawings of the city inside the hat. Hold the hat up to the light to see it. You might wear the hat while on holiday; it makes a nice wall-hanging at home.

Hong Kong
From 7:00 AM - 8:00 PM
Although it's officially part of China, Hong Kong is a world unto itself. This bustling city is full of ancient and modern architecture, lots of people and — of course — the best dim sum around. Head to the Kowloon Peninsula for Golden Mile shopping along Nathan Road. Then, make your way to Hong Kong Island to admire the views from the top of Victoria Peak — you can see the skyscrapers of the financial district as well as the fishing village of Stanley Harbour. Cruise to Hong Kong and trek out to mountainous Lantau Island to see the famous Tian Tan Buddha, standing a full 112 feet tall. Or score some quiet time at Hong Kong Park, full of contemplative rock gardens and tree-lined paths.
Hong Kong, China Victoria Peak Tram

Peek From the Peak

The Peak Tram takes you up to Victoria Peak, Hong Kong's 1,800-foot-high mountain. Less expensive buses will get you there, too. Once you're up top, admire the views over the city from the hiking trails. The Peak also offers an escape from the subtropical climate below — the air here is cooler and less humid.
Insider tip
The Hong Kong dollar (HKD) is the official currency. Some larger stores will accept Chinese yuan (also called renminbi and RMB), but the exchange rate isn't great. Withdrawing cash from an ATM almost always means the best exchange rate.
Hong Kong, China Harbor Pier Ferry Dock
Boats out on the harbor alongside a rocky coast in Hong Kong

Scenic Ride to Stanley

Stanley Harbour, on the other side of Hong Kong Island, will give you a taste of a different Hong Kong. It's a fishing village on Repulse Bay with a lovely seaside walk (snap some photos of the fishing boats) as well as a famous street market. There's lots of British history, a boardwalk and even a few beaches. You can take the bus from Central for a scenic trip, though the express bus is faster.
Insider tip
Buy an Octopus Card at any subway station to get around Hong Kong easily. Cards purchased here have a $100 HKD (about $12 USD) credit and $50 deposit. The deposit covers negative balances up to -$35. You can also use the card at many restaurants, shops and even at ice cream carts.
Hong Kong, China Victoria Harbor Sailboat

Out on the Harbor

Use an Octopus card for a ride on Hong Kong's iconic Star Ferry for inexpensive views of Hong Kong's harbor. The tour makes a scenic circular route between Kowloon Peninsula and Hong Kong Island, stopping at three piers. Skyscrapers are everywhere, but look closely for the smaller Golden Bauhinia near the Wan Chai Pier, a golden flower statue where the handover of Hong Kong took place in 1997.
Hong Kong, China Dim Sum
Delicious array of dim sum in bamboo steamers in Hong Kong, China

Local Cuisine

Hong Kong is famous for dim sum, a meal of bite-sized foods with various selections brought to your table. Traditionally eaten for brunch, you'll find it at other hours, too. Choose from steamed buns, dumplings or fried rolls filled with spinach, crab or chicken. You'll likely need to share a table — but then you'll have help deciding what to order. Restaurants with lots of locals are a sign of quality and good prices.
Hong Kong, China Traditional Jade Necklaces

Shopping

Head to Causeway Bay for modern retail therapy: This stretch of Hong Kong is virtually covered in malls and shops. Central is the district to go to for upscale designer clothes, shoes and other items. But don't overlook the markets for local handicrafts during your Hong Kong cruise. Pick up an inexpensive but distinctive jade necklace or ornament, or look for poetry-inscribed paintings and bamboo handicrafts from the antique dealers on Cat Street.

From 9:00 AM - 7:00 PM
A small series of sub-tropical islands just off Japan's mainland, Okinawa is home to untouched beaches perfect for a picnic or a splash in the blue water, as well as old castles harkening back to ages past. From Nakagusuku, the riches of the region's main island, Okinawa Honto, are right at your fingertips. Cruise to Okinawa and check out the Nakagusuku Castle ruins, where you can see austere stone courtyards dating back to the 14th century. Experience the rough cliffs and pristine blue waters of Cape Manzamo to the north, or head to Naha and see Shuri Castle, a reconstruction of the Ryuku Kingdom's most important palace from the 1400s to the 1800s.

Nakagusugu city is near a wealth of castle ruins dating back to the Ryukyu Kingdom, which had its heyday from the 1400s to the 1800s. Start off at the Katsuren Castle ruins and retrace an army's footsteps to Nakagusugu Castle (destroyed by the lord of Katsuren). It's easy to imagine the impressive structures in their prime while walking through the ancient battlements.<

Walk through the relaxing ponds and pagodas of Chinese-style Fukushu-en Garden, and a slice of Ryukyu history at reconstructed Shuri Castle.
Okinawa (Nakagusuku), Japan Taco Rice

Local Cuisine

American tastes have had a big effect on Okinawan food due to the presence of the U.S. military base here, and the result is a fusion food like you've never tried before. Cruise to Okinawa to dig into a delicious bowl of Taco Rice topped with crunchy salsa and a deep purple sweet potato tartlet. Don't forget to try the Ube (purple sweet potato) ice cream at Okinawan mainstay Blue Seal.
