This voyage with Regent Seven Seas Cruises is the ultimate introduction to the delights of Southeast Asia. It all begins with a pre-cruise stay in Singapore, where city tours and botanical garden visits will showcase the city’s rich heritage and sustainable future. Then, setting sail aboard the stunning Seven Seas Explorer, you’ll swap sun-kissed Thai islands and Cambodian beach resorts for the urban delights of Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh City. Then, having taken in rural settings of the Mekong Delta and seaside Nha Trang, you’ll head to the Philippines for diving, snorkelling and tours of its pulsating capital, Manila. Lastly, wrap things up with a final night on board as you sail to Hong Kong. Throughout, you’ll be treated to all the luxuries of a Regent Seven Seas cruise, from all-inclusive fine dining to a full programme of complimentary shore excursions. There’s everything from expert-led city tours to cycling trips and kayak adventures.
