DAY 1 - Departure Day

Hong Kong, China

DEPARTS:
5:00 PM

SHOULDA, WOULDA, BUDDHA

After you arrive at Hong Kong's airport on Lantau Island, see the enormous Tian Tan Buddha, measuring 112 feet tall and weighing over 200 tons. Then, take a harbor cruise to get your bearings and see Hong Kong's modern architecture. Later, slurp noodles at the Temple Street Night Market. If you have an extra day, head out to Dragon's Back portion of the Hong Kong Trail for some scenic hiking among mist-covered peaks.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Traditional Jade necklaces sold in markets while souvenir shopping in Hong Kong, China

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.

DAY 3 - TENDERED

Ilocos (Salomague), Philippines

ARRIVES:
7:00 AM
DEPARTS:
5:00 PM

ILOCOS FOR ADVENTURE

Use your stop in Ilocos to discover the beaches of Cabugao and the rich heritage of historic Vigan, where you can watch masters of centuries-old pottery techniques at work. From here you can ride on a traditional horse past cathedrals and heritage homes that date back to colonial times. Or stay close to port with a short boat ride to Salomague Island, where lonely beaches are so idyllic you'll feel like you've stepped into a postcard.

Things To Do

in Ilocos (Salomague)

Tropical beach of Pagudpud in Ilocos, Philippines

Cabugao to the Beach

The waters off of Salomague port itself are clear and blue, but a quick taxi ride to nearby Cabugao will allow you to experience stretches of coastline unobscured by ships. Pug-os Beach, which is home to several beach resorts, is a popular option with white sands just waiting to be tread upon. Surf in turquoise waters or sip on fresh mango juice in a comfy lounge chair with your favorite book.

Stairway leading up to Cape Bojeador Lighthouse in Ilocos, Philippines

Find Nostalgia in Vigan

If you have at least four hours in Ilocos, consider a day trip to Vigan, a city that's home to dozens of colonial architectural treasures. Ride a horse-drawn calesa buggy past landmarks such as St. Paul's Metropolitan Cathedral and the Spanish-era archbishop's residence. The bright orange roofs reflect the afternoon sun and the clip-clop of hooves on cobblestone streets draws travelers back to simpler days.

Blue boat docked by the shore in Ilocos, Philippines

Sail to Salomague Island

An alternative way to hit the beach from Salomague is to take a five-minute ride on a traditional banca boat and head to Salomague Island. Here, you'll escape to deserted white-sand beaches and the kind of solitude you can't find in urban areas. Cruise to Ilocos, Philippines and take a quick dip with a snorkel to enjoy the world-class diving these clear waters boast.

Crispy bagnet, a deep fried crispy pork belly dish, served with onion and fresh tomatoes and a side of rice, in Ilocos, Philippines

Local Cuisine

South Iloco is a surprising culinary hot spot, especially when you consider how low-profile it is compared to other regions of the Philippines. Fried food is king here, from melt-in-your-mouth bagnet pork belly, to fatty but sweet and spicy longganisa sausage, which is the Philippines' answer to pan-Latin chorizo sausage.

Clay pottery for sale in Ilocos, Philippines

Shopping

Even if you can't make it down to Vigan to visit the workshops where super-strong and smooth-to-the-touch Pagburnayan pottery is made by hand, you can still take some home with you. Several vendors around Salomague's cruise port sell pieces large and small, including sizes you can take back on the ship with you.

INSIDER TIP

The Philippines' rainy season runs from May to October. Always carry an umbrella or a raincoat to be ready for anything.

DAY 4 - DOCKED

Manila, Philippines

ARRIVES:
8:00 AM
DEPARTS:
8:00 PM

CITY OF CONTRASTS

Step into Manila's walled city, known as Intramuros, to enter a world of Spanish colonial architecture with sites like 16th-century Fort Santiago and Baroque, pink-hued San Agustin Church. Or explore ultra-modern districts like Makati, home to futuristic architecture and the Ayala Museum, which houses modern Filipino art. Or take a day trip to World War II heritage hub Corregidor Island or volcanic Mount Taal.

Walled-In Wonders

The walled city of Intramuros will take you back in time to the Spanish conquest of Manila in the late 16th century. See the Fort Santiago Citadel itself and the treasures within, like the Spanish Colonial San Agustin Church and Bahay Tsinoy Museum, which is dedicated to the Philippines' Chinese immigrant community.

Garden and modern skyscraper in the city center of Manila, Philippines

Modern Manila

Manila isn't just about the past. The vibrant Makati district is pulsating and futuristic. Its tree-lined boulevards are home to modern architectural landmarks like the Ayala Museum and contemporary shopping malls, like Glorietta and the Greenbelt, which are marvels of architecture (and air conditioning) in their own right.

Taal volcano on an island in Manila, Philippines

Head to the Wild

Hire a taxi at the cruise port exit and have them take you to Ta'al Volcano in Batangas province, where you'll find a lake inside a volcano inside a lake. Ta'al Volcano's size and scope are as impressive from its rim as from the viewpoint that's reachable by car. Alternatively, ride a ferry westward from Manila toward Corregidor, an island that was pivotal during World War II.

Traditional food in the Philippines with noodles, vegetables, and lime served on the side

Local Cuisine

Whether you opt for outdoor stalls around Intramuros or upscale Makati restaurants such as Sentro 1771 in Makati, make traditional Filipino cuisine your priority. Manila cruises offer you the opportunity to try pancit bihon guisado, fried noodles with soy sauce, citrus and veggies. Tuck into sisig, a crispy pork casserole spiced with chilies and flavored with calamansi, a local citrus fruit.

Shopping

If there's one thing Manila's got plenty of, it's shopping. From the shopping malls, to souvenir stalls both inside and outside the walls of Intramuros, you'll be spoiled for choice. Buy "Jeepney" keychains that depict the rural Filipino vehicle for a high kitsch factor, or choose colorful Banig crafts made from traditional Manila hemp grasses for a more rural, traditional souvenir.

INSIDER TIP

Manila is famous for its traffic, so be conservative with the distance you plan to travel during your stop. If you have less than 3-4 hours here, you shouldn't leave the city center.

DAY 5 - DOCKED

Subic Bay, Philippines

ARRIVES:
7:00 AM
DEPARTS:
6:00 PM

SAFARI SPIRIT

Subic Bay is one of the best spots for admiring the Phillipines' wildlife and natural beauty. Marvel at birds and rainforest flora as you hike the wild Pamaulaklakin Forest Trail. Or head to Subic Bay Ocean Adventure to come face-to-face with dolphins. SCUBA dive through reefs and shipwrecks in Subic Bay, or take a dive from the cliffs into cool waters at the El Kabayo Waterfalls.

Wonder at the Wildlife

Wildlife abounds in Subic Bay, and you don't have to go far from civilization to see the local fauna. Get up-close-and-personal with marine animals at Subic Bay Ocean Adventure. Or see the creatures of the land at Zoobic Safari, a 25-hectare wildlife sanctuary where you can glimpse tigers, camels, ostriches, wild boars and other animals native to the rainforests here.

Scuba Diving on coral reef with tropical fish in Subic Bay, Philippines

Dare to Dive

Are you SCUBA-certified? If so, there's no shortage of dive companies around Subic Harbor to escort you on an underwater adventure. Swim through magnificent reefs, or see shipwrecks up close and personal. Even if you have only a short time to spare, diving in Subic is an accessible activity.

Tropical river running through rainforest in Subic Bay, Philippines

Take to the Trails

Get to know the stunning landscapes of Subic Bay the old-fashioned way: on two foot. Head to Pamaulaklakin Forest, where you can hike the trail through the rainforest and learn ancient survival methods from the Aetas, the native people who preserve their traditional ways here.

Popular ice cream dessert Halo-halo in Subic Bay, Philippines

Local Cuisine

Subic retains a lot of American character, but seek out the Filipino favorites. Cruise to Subic Bay to try pancit, the regional rice noodle stir fry with chicken, cabbage and carrots. Spice it up with tambakol, local yellowfin tuna with chopped chilies, cooked in coconut milk. For dessert, indulge in colorful halo-halo, shaved ice sweetened with evaporated milk and mixed with sweet beans, coconut, fruit or other toppings.

Souvenir shells from a marketplace in Subic Bay, Philippines

Shopping

Shopping malls have become a favorite Filipino past-time, largely due to their promise of free A/C in this typically humid climate. But you can also find classic souvenirs in modern shopping centers such as Harbor Point and Royal Subic during your Philippines cruise vacation. Pick up seashells from the local shoreline or kitschy key chains shaped like Jeepneys — the Jeeps-turned-buses that are the Philippines' most famous form of public transport.

INSIDER TIP

Jeepneys aren't permitted within the Subic free zone. If you want to ride one, make sure you have time to exit the free zone.

Sleeping Buddha at the Long Son Pagoda in Nha Trang, Vietnam

Buddha Basics

Learn about Buddhism by visiting the Hai Duc and Long Son pagodas. The latter has a giant white Buddha statue which can be seen from anywhere in Nha Trang. Look for dragons and other mythical animals in the temple designs, inside and out.

Po Ngar Cham Towers in Nha Trang, Vietnam

Rejuvenate Mind and Body

The Po Nagar Cham Towers are less than two miles north of the city. Only four of the eight towers built in the 7th to 12th centuries remain. Find your inner calm at this ancient worship site, which blends Buddhist and Hindu traditions in its statues and architecture. Then, head to the hot springs and mud baths at nearby Thap Ba to refresh your body, too.

Seafood sold on the beach in Nha Trang, Vietnam

Local Cuisine

Nha Trang is well-known for its excellent seafood. Locals farm lobster just offshore — have a feast on the beach or at one of the city's many restaurants. Or try the Vietnamese version of steak and eggs, bo ne, traditionally served on a hot plate for breakfast with lime and chili sauce.

Silk vietnamese scarves o fall sorts of colors

Shopping

Check out street markets like Dam or Vinh Luong. Here, you'll find souvenirs like pearl jewelry, clay pots painted with Champa designs or hand-embroidered artwork. Peruse Tran Phu Street along the beach — look for silk clothing in the form of shirts, skirts and scarves.

INSIDER TIP

Don't be surprised if you see Russian signs and menus; Nha Trang is a popular beach holiday for Russians.

Traditional vietnamese noodle soups pho in bowls

Local Cuisine

Try pho in the birthplace the now-popular soup, made with a rich, long-simmered broth and flavored with cloves, cardamom and other spices. 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.

Souvenir lacquer bowls with cover in Vietnam

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.

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.

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.

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."

Marina Bay Sands hotel in Singapore

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.

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.

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.

INSIDER TIP

Although Singaporeans speak English natively, the accent (lovingly called "Singlish") can sometimes be tricky to grasp at first. If you don't understand what someone says to you, politely ask them to repeat.
