Far East Cruise to Hong Kong
For sheer drama and beauty, Hong Kong has to be one of the most enigmatic cities in the world, curved around a spectacular bay with soaring jagged peaks on three sides. With its waterfront setting of giant, serried skyscrapers and spectacular night time laser shows, it remains one of the great melting pots of Asia and, indeed, the world.
Arriving or leaving Hong Kong by sea gives you a unique, privileged view of this former British colony's amazing, dramatic stance. From the deck of a luxury cruise ship, that fabulous waterfront comes instantly alive. Vibrant and electrifying, it creates memories that nothing else can quite match.
And as a cruise embarkation port, Hong Kong forms something of a crossroads in itself. Fast, convenient air links from all over the United Kingdom tie in with hotel packages and your voyage to create a convenient and cost effective way to maximise your time in the Far East. From budget hotels to stunning luxury icons like the legendary peninsula, Hong Kong offers huge scope and matchless style.
After leaving the great city itself behind, the beautiful islands and cities of the Far East beckon like a string of fabulous pearls. Singapore is the other great ex colonial outpost, with elegant Raffles Hotel and the imperious Merlion providing poignant links to that era. Malaysia is at once beguiling and exotic, and offers striking modernity in the capital, Kuala Lumpur, where the view from the top of the Petronas Towers extends in all directions for miles.
Cruising these calm, fabled waters offers so many options that one trip will never be enough, from the highlights of ancient, imperial Thailand to exotic beach resorts such as Phuket. Further afield, the cities of Vietnam and beautiful, dramatic seascapes such as Halong Bay offers tempting extra dimensions to a magnificent, multi layered adventure.
