On this fascinating island visit the world’s tallest building, the Chiang Kai Shek Memorial, the fabulous Palace Museum’s vast collection of Chinese art and the lovely Lungshan Temple. Explore lovely Keelung’s historic sites and Yeliu Park’s astonishing rock formations.

Day 2Kaohsiung, Taiwan

The canal-like Love River flows through the heart of this wonderfully modern city, and a boat ride along its shores reveals Kaohsiung’s beauty. The former British Consulate, built in 1865, is a historic landmark juxtaposed with more modern sites such as the Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts, known for its contemporary sculptures.

Day 3At Sea

Day 4Manila, Philippines

Dynamic Manila never slows down, so go with the flow by delving headlong into the attractions, including the elegant Malacanang Palace, the National Museum of the Philippines, verdant Rizal Park and the poignant American Cemetery and Memorial. The walled medieval district of Intramuros is also well worth exploring.

Day 5At Sea

Day 6Kota Kinabalu (Borneo), Malaysia

Enjoy the sights in this bustling, ethnically diverse city as you see the gold-domed mosque, unique high-rise architecture and the Heritage Village. Or venture into the interior and astonishing Kinabalu Park. Stroll past rare plants along a nature trail and through a garden of rare orchids. Or ride Borneo’s last train into the lush countryside of farms, water buffalo and villages. Spend time on the glorious beaches.

Day 10Semarang (Java), Indonesia

Journey to the magnificently restored temple of Borobudur, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is the world’s largest Buddhist temple, built around 800 A.D. and forgotten for centuries under the teeming Javanese jungle. Circumnavigate the tiers until you reach the top. Survey the surrounding countryside and be sure to reach out and touch the foot of a Buddha for luck. Or venture further to the Dieng Plateau with its stunning scenery, volcanic vents and 8th century Hindu temples.

Day 11Surabaya, Indonesia

Showcasing a dizzying array of cultural influences, this second-largest city in Indonesia was once the most important port of the Dutch East Indies. A prime example is the stately 19th-century House of Sampoerna, a colonial-style cigarette factory that houses a fascinating museum. Discover a vast selection of wares at Pasar Pabean, a lively market that links Chinatown and the Arab Quarter. At the Grand Mosque of Surabaya, one of Indonesia’s largest, climb the soaring minaret for better views of the gleaming blue and green tiles adorning the sanctuary’s domes. As a tranquil respite, settle in for high tea at the elegant Majapahit Hotel, a highlight of Surabaya’s complex and absorbing historical legacy.

Day 12Bali (Celukan Bawang), Indonesia

Explore the hidden wonders of northern Bali from this busy port, where modern seagoing vessels mingle with traditional Bugis schooners, high-prowed wooden ships that have plied these waters for centuries. More eclectic charms await in Bali’s former capital of Singaraja, whose colonial Dutch influence contrasts with the island’s age-old stone temples. Immerse yourself in the untamed wilderness of Bali Barat National Park, perhaps snorkeling among the luminous coral reefs surrounding Menjangan Island or sighting the graceful Bali starling in a lush monsoon forest. Stroll exotic botanical gardens in the lakeside village of Bedugul and browse a colorful farmer’s market for an authentic glimpse of Bali’s timeless allure.

Visit Ellendale Pool, a natural pool surrounded by giant gum trees and a stunning rocky cliff. Perhaps spend a leisurely afternoon on one of the many sun-drenched beaches and watch the abundant kitesurfers in action – Geraldton is one of the top three kitesurfing locations in the world. Immerse yourself in the local cuisine at an eclectic café or serene seaside restaurant as you sample lobster fresh from the sea and typical regional dishes.

Day 21Perth (Fremantle), Australia

A stunning setting along Swan River and the Indian Ocean welcomes you into the laid-back city of Perth.
