Setting sail from Kobe

Small in size and cosmopolitan in its outlook, Kobe is a thoroughly pleasant city with a long and distinguished history as one of Japan's main trading ports. Kobe's past as a commercial hub is reflected in its architecture, with a number of unusually European-looking houses, as well as a charming, if slightly touristy, Chinatown. Kobe is overlooked by Mount Rokko, and you can take a cable car to the top for marvellous views. The city is also an important centre for sake production, so it's a great place to sample Japan's most famous tipple.

Don't miss

Kitano-cho was the centre of foreign trade in the 19th century, so here you can find the former mansions, Ijinkan, which are open to the public. A great area to just wander around.

Arriving in Manila

Manila is a sprawling, chaotic conglomeration of soaring skyscrapers, faded colonial facades and ramshackle slums, and it's certainly not everyone's cup of tea. But if you have the stamina and an inquisitive nature, there is plenty to be enjoyed in the Philippines' boisterous capital, including the world's oldest Chinatown, the historic walled city of Intramuros and the bustling shopping malls of Makati. You can escape the madness and grab some respite in pleasant Rizal Park, or explore the remarkable Chinese Cemetery, where Manila's wealthiest Chinese citizens are laid to rest in unbelievably lavish mausoleums, complete with chandeliers, kitchens and air-conditioning!

Our tip

Cool and laid back is the style here. Don’t lose face by losing your temper, and don’t fret about delays – arriving on time isn’t polite anyway.

For once-in-a-lifetime tailor-made itineraries, Mundy Adventures specialises in expedition cruises to some of the most wonderful places on earth; places often only accessible by water.
