Asia & The Far East

Asia is the largest continent and is home to the world’s tallest mountains, the longest coastline, and holds three-fifths of the world’s population. Cruising is a wonderful way to see the region. Asia extends from Burma and Thailand in the west, flows through to Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore and continues on to Vietnam, Cambodia, China and Japan. Clearly with this range of countries and cultures, there is something for everyone to enjoy and learn. Ancient temples, great Buddha statues, bustling cities, forests and wildlife are just some of the experiences to be enjoyed on a cruise around Asia and the Far East.

Cruise Types

There are now cruise ships based in the region, predominantly in Singapore, that offer year round cruises. The Singapore cruises sail the Strait of Malacca up to Thailand, or across the South China Sea to Vietnam and China. Many of the major cruise lines position a ship here for a few months each year, the timing based on the location they cruise. For example, ships visiting Japan tend to be there in the northern spring to enjoy the famous Cherry Blossom period. Round the world cruises also pass through the region and these visit early in the year.

Cruise Seasons

Cruises are available year round as weather in the South East of the region is warm all year round, though both cruising and weather are better in the non-monsoon period. Cruises to China and Japan tend to be in the Spring, from March to May.

Main Ports

While the number of different ports visited by the cruise ships is substantial, the key embarkation ports in the region are Singapore, Hong Kong, Osaka and Beijing.

Weather

Weather in the South East of the region is tropical, so it is warm and humid all year round. The Tropics don’t have seasons as such, they have wet and dry periods. The wet season, or monsoon period, is from June to September. The more northerly ports in China and Japan are seasonal, and cruises here are in Spring.
