No tour of China is complete without a Yangtze River Cruise. The Yangtze is one of the world’s mightiest rivers, and a Yangtze river tour with Trafalgar, Viking China Cruises, or Victoria Cruise lines will give you a first hand look as you sail through the picturesque countryside in the stunning Three Gorges region.
The Far East is so varied and so full of history, it’s worth exploring more of the region on board a cruise throughout Asia. Let Elite Cruises and Travel make arrangements for you to visit everything from temples to skyscrapers on board a Crystal Cruise. The Crystal Serenity stops in Singapore, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Malaysia and India, bringing you the splendour and beauty of the region. Phuket, Thailand is known as the “Pearl of the South” and has long attracted tourists from around the world to its magnificent beaches and lush forests. Singapore is a bustling city, known as the “Crossroads of the East”, having grown up on the world’s lucrative spice trade. You can also sail up the Chao Phraya through the heart of Bangkok on board with an intimate cruise from the Yachts of Seabourn, or explore Thai markets or the breathtaking terraced gardens and mountains of Chiang Mai on a Globus Thailand tour.
