Vietnam & Thailand Intensive with Singapore City Stay

Enjoy the best of Southeast Asia with well-timed overnight stays. Sail through the otherworldly limestone karts and fishing villages of Halong Bay and step back in time to the ancient imperial city of Hue on the Perfume River. You’ll want to soak up some quality time on the long, beautiful beachfront of Nha Trang. Or maybe you’ll be enticed to visit whacky Vinpearl Land, the Disneyland of Vietnam. In Ho Chi Minh City you’ll dock within walking distance of the Rex Hotel with easy access to legendary nightlife. Love to shop? Bustling Ben Thanh Market is just one of many huge street markets selling everything under the sun.

Bangkok is its own unique experience, a city of temples, friendly people and non-stop action. You’ll have two overnights to sample Thai foods, see the incredible Grand Palace and giant gold Buddha at Wat Pho, and shop at colorful floating markets. Shop for gemstones and silk, and discover Thai-style nightlife from rooftop bars to buzzing Chinatown. You’ll even have time for a visit to the temples of Angkor Wat in Cambodia. After the bustle, relax on the white beaches of Ko Samui before arriving in Singapore.

Itinerary

DAY 1: Hong Kong, China

With 1,200+ skyscrapers, Hong Kong is a vertical city, so for great skyline views, take a tram to the top of Victoria Peak. Better still, hop on the tram between Kennedy Town and Shau Kei Wan for a cost-effective city tour. Head to Central for the world’s longest outdoor escalator system and the incredible nightlife of Lan Kwai Fong. For a much quieter day, take a ferry to Lamma or Lantau Island.

DAY 2: At Sea

Spend the day sailing in style aboard your boutique hotel at sea. Indulge in a treatment at Sanctum Spa, stay ship shape with a class at our fitness center, or lounge the day away on our sunny pool deck.

In the evening, savor inspired Italian cuisine at Aqualina, or relish in a classic steakhouse experience at Prime C. Plus, you’ll find plenty of exciting evening entertainment, from thrilling shows at Cabaret Lounge to intimate performances in the Living Room.

DAY 3-4: Halong Bay (Hanoi), Vietnam

In Hanoi’s Old Quarter thousands of the buildings are over 100 years old and the streets are named after the wares that were traditionally sold on them such as Hang Bac (silver), Hang Ma (paper), and Hang Go (wood). Get a taste for daily life at Hoan Kiem Lake, the centerpiece of Hanoi. You’ll see folks of all ages doing tai chi, couples strolling hand in hand, and lots and lots of motorbikes.

DAY 5: Da Nang (Hue & Hoi An), Vietnam

Vietnam’s third-largest city is the ideal gateway to explore the rich culture and history of this engaging and enigmatic country.

Bangkok is a city steeped in contrast. Gold-spired temples share space with the neon glow of red-light districts, mega-malls sit across the street from street markets, and everywhere you look carts serving incredible food sit in the shadows of white-linen restaurants. Grand Palace and Wat Pho are very popular sites, but no matter where your travels take you, be sure to experience a Tuk Tuk ride.

DAY 13: Ko Samui, Thailand

The island of Ko Samui is a tiny tropical paradise, lined with coconut trees, white sand beaches, and stunning blue water.
