The Asian Cruise - where it takes place and when to go
Asia is bounded to the north by the Arctic Ocean, to the east by the Pacific, to the south by the Indian Ocean and to the west by the Ural mountains, the Ural river, the Kuma‚ÄďManych Depression, the Caucasus, the south coast of the Black Sea, the Bosporus, the Sea of Marmara and the Dardanelles. The best time for an Asian Cruise is in the spring and autumn months.
Asian Cruises - cities and tourist attractions
"Ni hao" ‚ÄĒ this is most probably how you will be greeted in high Chinese in the Chinese capital of Beijing. Starting from the famous Tiananmen Square, you arrive at the Gate of Heavenly Peace, the southern gate of the magnificent Imperial Palace, a World Cultural Heritage site. A particular highlight of a visit to Beijing comes in the form of the Ming tombs, where the tombs of 13 of the 16 Ming emperors are to be found.
Some Asian Cruises will take you to Japan's southernmost island, Okinawa, where idyllic beaches of fine white sand and crystal clear water await you. Another worthwhile destination is the Shuri Castle.
The area around Keelung in Taiwan has a particular rural charm. An impressive blend of stepped rice paddies, sand dunes, rocky reefs and dark green meadows will set the pulses of nature lovers racing.
Go on an Asian Cruise and discover the city which is simultaneously the largest city and most important economic hub in Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City. The cityscape is dominated by good-natured hustle and bustle, strongly influenced by the numerous traditional markets and unbelievably dense traffic. If you wish to escape from the hurly-burly of the city, there is nothing better than a visit to the cathedral of Notre Dame, built between 1877 and 1883.
Your journey then continues to Singapore. Hardly any other holiday destination has more diversity to offer than this city. With its numerous sensational attractions such as, for example, Snow City, the indoor ski centre, or the Singapore zoo, this metropolis brings people from all over the world under its spell.
Go on an Asian Cruise and experience the particular charm of Bangkok, the capital city of Thailand. Numerous grandiose temple complexes, such as the famous "Wat Phra Kaeo", give you insights into the history of Buddhism. The huge range of shopping options and the glittering and lively nightlife of Bangkok will enable you to experience close-up of the flair of the big city. One of the principal methods of transport here is the water taxi. However, the skytrain, which travels at a height of 12 m, and the "Tuk-Tuk", a three-wheeled motorcycle rickshaw, are also important methods of transport for Thais.
