Cruise Description

12 Night Cruise sailing from Singapore roundtrip aboard Azamara Quest.

When Myanmar opened its doors to tourism, some feared it would change too much, too fast. Thankfully this country has retained much of its authenticity. In Yangon, visit the Pagoda as monks pray and the sun sets, a sight you’ll never forget. For a real-life view of the city, take a ride on the Circular Train where you’ll see a wide swath of daily life as you chug through urban neighborhoods and rural villages. And be sure to take an excursion to Bagan along the Ayeyarwady River, a stunning site of thousands of ancient temples and stupas. It’s simply spectacular.

More good reasons to join this voyage: the white-sand beaches and tropical jungles of Phuket and a day in Penang, where you can take a hair-raising funicular ride or visit the colorful old trading center at George Town. Don’t leave without tasting Asam Laksa, Penang’s sweet and sour rice noodle soup. Kuala Lumpur picks up the pace with great shopping, specialty coffee shops and stunning views from Petronas Towers, the city’s iconic 88-story landmark. Plan for extra time in Singapore, a food lover’s paradise that elevates Malaysian, Chinese and Indian cuisine to a new level of delicious inventiveness.

Highlights of this cruise:

Singapore, Singapore
Chinese, Malay and Indian traditions meld in this island-state at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula. The site of the world's busiest port, Singapore offers the Mustafa Centre, a 24-hour mall and Sunte, the world's largest fountain. Play evening golf on lighted fairways; experience the nightlife on Mohamed Sultan Road; or relax at an outdoor spa. Be certain not to miss the savory seafood.

Phuket
Floating in the sparkling waters of the Andaman Sea, palm-fringed white-sand beaches encircling its lush green interior, Phuket is nirvana for water sports enthusiasts of all kinds, golfers seeking championship courses, and nature lovers who will be thrilled by the breathtaking scenery of Phang Nga Bay.

Cruise this waterway amidst strangely shaped limestone karsts thrusting up from the water’s surface, and explore caves dressed to the nines in stalactites and stalagmites.

If all that isn’t enough, try an elephant ride through the jungle, a soothing Thai massage, or a detour through stores and galleries in handsome old Chinese shophouses.

Yangon (Rangoon), Myanmar (Burma)
This low-rise downtown consists of leafy avenues and quite a lot of colonial architecture, for a small town feel despite a population of about 6 million. From almost anywhere you are in Yangon, you will see the great gilded dome of the Shwedagon Pagoda hovering over you protectively, and a visit will introduce you not only to one of the Asia’s great religious sites, but to the daily life of the Burmese people, who come often to make their devotions, but also to spend time with friends, or sit in quiet contemplation. Kipling called it a “golden mystery”, and it is indeed capable of casting a spell on all who visit.

Georgetown, Penang
The island of Penang has it all: Venerable history, a potpourri of multicultural influences, pristine beaches, and of course fantastic food. Penang cuisine is a flavorful mixture of traditional Malay cuisine, with a side of Chinese, a dash of Indian, and a sprinkling of fusion cuisine like Baba Nyonya and Peranakan. And the best way to experience this world of flavors is to hit the streets and follow your nose.

Discover the bustling capital city of Georgetown and marvel at the colonial architecture, old-fashioned shops, Chinese and Indian temples, and the Penang Museum. The inner city of Georgetown is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and consists of a mixture of colonial architecture—a reminder of this city’s British past—and the ideal spot for a stroll to get a feel for the city’s history, cultures, and festivals.

Great day excursions include a visit to the underwater world of the Palau Payar Marine Park, a round of golf at Bukit Jambul Country Club, or a tour of Southeast Asia’s largest Buddhist temple, Kek Lok Si, and the Penang Botanical Gardens, located at the base of Penang Hill.

Port Klang (Kuala Lumpur), Malaysia
Kuala Lumpur is a rich mélange of cultures, set amidst the striking contrast of yesterday and tomorrow. The iconic 88-story Petronas Towers are the pride of the city, but architectural variety runs rampant around Independence Square, lined by the Sultan Abdul Samad Building of Moorish design, the Tudor-style Cricket Club, the Railway Station in a mix of East and West, and St. Mary’s Cathedral, in early English gothic. As a result of its ethnic diversity, Malaysia offers a variety of cuisines, including an early version of Asian fusion: Peranakan or Nonya – the result of blending Chinese ingredients and wok cooking techniques with traditional Malay spices.
