January 16, 2021 – Enjoy your day exploring the city!

Temples, mosques and churches stand as serene reminders of the varied migrations that have graced its history. Discover the mansions and polo greens of colonial Singapore, the mystique of Chinatown, and the heady aroma of spices along Arab Street.
The ship departs at 7:00 PM the evening of the 16th.
January 17, 2021 – Arrival into Port Kelang, Malaysia. Bustling Port Kelang is the principal port of entry for Malaysia. The country’s capital, Kuala Lumpur, is a surprisingly modern city of domes, minarets and spacious, tree-lined avenues. Her symbols of faith are visible at the Jamek Mosque, the city’s birthplace.
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Kuala Lumpur is the capital of Malaysia. Its modern skyline is dominated by the 451m-tall Petronas Twin Towers, a pair of glass-and-steel-clad skyscrapers with Islamic motifs. The towers also offer a public skybridge and observation deck. The city is also home to British colonial-era landmarks such as the Kuala Lumpur Railway Station and the Sultan Abdul Samad Building.

January 18, 2021 – Located on the ancient spice routes, Penang is a compelling blend of Old World Asia, Sumatra, India and influences of its various European settlers over the centuries. It has been a historical link between Europe and the Middle East, and its modern identity remains a kaleidoscope of cultures. Lively markets offer adventures for the palate, its emerging art scene adds intrigue to urban jungle, and Penang Bridge and Penang Hill afford sweeping vistas.
January 19, 2021 – Residents call Phuket “The Pearl of the South,” and one visit to this green, sun-soaked island in the Andaman Sea will show you why. The coast is a succession of magnificent beaches, the forested interior boasts virgin rain forests and numerous cacao, pineapple, and rubber plantations. The culture is a distinctive blend of Portuguese, Chinese and indigenous Chao Naam: a proud, seafaring people
Phuket, a rainforested, mountainous island in the Andaman Sea, has some of Thailand’s most popular beaches, mainly situated along the clear waters of the western shore. The island is home to many high-end seaside resorts, spas and restaurants. Phuket City, the capital, has old shophouses and busy markets.

January 21-23, 2021 – Through its decades of self-isolation, the unspoiled country of Yangon, Myanmar (formerly Rangoon, Burma) has retained its charm, fascinating traditions and the irresistible politeness of its people. Home to the spectacular Shwedagon Pagoda, colonial-era building, shophouses and jazz-age mansions, this developing city is full of traditional and modern contradictions.
The Shwedagon Pagoda, officially named Shwedagon Zedi Daw and also known as the Great Dagon Pagoda and the Golden Pagoda, is a gilded stupa located in Yangon, Myanmar. The Shwedagon is the most sacred Buddhist pagoda in Myanmar, as it is believed to contain relics of the four previous Buddhas of the present kalpa.

January 25, 2021 – If you haven’t heard much about Langkawi, you soon will. Situated in the Andaman Sea off the coast of mainland Malaysia, this erstwhile under-the-radar archipelago of 99 islands is making quite a splash. Rich in exotic wildlife and fringed by white-sand beaches, the islands are the idyllic reality of the romantic notion of a tropical getaway. Langkawi Island is the only isle in the archipelago with any significant human population and settlement, welcoming visitors with forest-covered mountains, verdant rice paddies, hidden lagoons and limestone escarpments. In fact, the island’s natural wonders have earned Langkawi a UNESCO World Geopark designation.
