Experience the wonders of the United Arab Emirates, India, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore when you cruise the Spice Route from Dubai to Singapore! Cruising is the best way to see this colourful, colonial route, and the voyage will be an insight into the journeys that the spice traders once took. Some highlights on your trip would include:
Exploring the modern city of Dubai where the city is alive with innovation, technology and fashion. There are several observation decks, fancy malls, large water features and attraction parks to keep you entertained.
Visiting the UNESCO Heritage Site of Elephanta Island, a collection of cave temples and rock carvings. Here you’ll see magnificent Hindu carvings that depict the God of Shiva and explore a range of themes from love to violence.
Drinking world-famous tea and people-watching in Colombo, the capital city of Sri Lanka. After you’ll venture outside of the city and have the opportunity to discover the surrounding countryside.
Yala National Park
Counting the number of elephants you can spot in Yala National Park – Sri Lanka’s second largest national park. You’ll be amazed at the wildlife you’ll find here; it’s home to one of the world’s largest concentrations of leopards.
Gazing upon the Shwedagon Pagoda, Yangon’s iconic landmark. This is one of Buddhism’s most sacred sites and is said to hold relics of three former buddhas. Expect diamonds, gold leaf, glittering gems and more!
Snorkelling, surfing or diving in Phuket. Have your dream beach day in Thailand and then head out in the evening to experience the city’s thriving nightlife.
A trip to the Georgetown in the Malaysian Island of Penang, the perfect place to see old colonial buildings and Chinese shophouses. You’ll be missing out if you don’t try the street food here: it’s cheap, delicious and full of interesting flavor combinations.
Gardens of the Bay
Walking through Singapore’s Gardens of the Bay. These famous gardens are futuristic in design and 101 hectares in size! There’s a flower dome, a cloud forest, a skyway, some lakes…not to mention the beautiful supertree groves. You’re in for a treat.
