Asian Discovery with the Eastern and Oriental Express

Hong Kong is unforgettable. Hazy skyscrapers tower over as many ancient temples as they do bustling streets, while ancient traditions thrive alongside spectacular shopping destinations. This wonderful mix of old meets new; East meets West; makes luxury cruises from Hong Kong as iconic as the city itself.

Our exclusive cruise package is the best way to explore this stunning region. After flying into Hong Kong you will transfer to a five-star hotel and start your journey in imitable style. Your three night stay will enable you to explore everything this city has to offer, from the melting pot of Cantonese, Sichuanese, Japanese and French cuisine to the tranquil Man Mo Temple.

Explore Hong Kong with a deluxe tour and see the most impressive harbour at night on a Symphony of Lights cruise. Next, you will board ms Westerdam for a 15-night cruise. Visit stunning destinations such as Halong Bay, Bangkok and, finally, Singapore, where you will board the luxury Eastern & Oriental Express.

On-board this iconic train you will roll through the southern Malaysian countryside and enjoy dinner with a view in a luxurious dining car. After a delicious breakfast you will arrive in Kuala Kangsar and be met by a choice of activities. After another decadent dinner, the next stop is Kanchanaburi, where you will again have a choice of tour. You will return to your train for lunch then disembark and end your journey in a Bangkok hotel before flying home to the UK, your head spinning with unforgettable memories.

This is just one of many Iconic Rail packages we can offer - call our expert Cruise Concierge team to tailor-make your perfect package.
