Setting sail from Shanghai

Shanghai has long been China's most outward-looking, cosmopolitan city, as evidenced by the fascinating mixture of European and Oriental architecture. The Bund, a riverfront promenade flanked by grand colonial era buildings, is the city's most famous thoroughfare, while the Pudong financial district lights up the city skyline at night with its futuristic towers. Shanghai's restaurant scene is thriving like never before, with a number of Michelin-starred chefs setting up shop here, while Nanjing Road is the place to head for a spot of retail therapy, with its shiny shopping malls and luxury boutiques.

Our tip

Take time to stroll along the Bund where the Gothic, Baroque, Romanesque, Classical and Renaissance style buildings of the west side are starkly juxtaposed with the super modern Pudong district.

Arriving in Hong Kong

Hong Kong is a fantastic place to begin or end a cruise, a striking mix of ancient and modern, Chinese and British, and there is a lot more to the city than just skyscrapers and high finance. On Hong Kong Island itself you'll find the bustling financial centre of Central district, the more traditionally Chinese Western district and the shops of Causeway Bay, while on the mainland Kowloon Peninsula the district of Tsim Sha Tsui is where most of Hong Kong's best hotels are located, and the atmospheric markets of Mong Kok are just to the north.

Don't miss

The views from Victoria Peak. Accessible by the Peak Tram, a funicular railway which claims to be one of the oldest cableways in the world, the views across the city are excellent.

Named by Her Majesty the Queen, Cunard’s newest luxury liner still recalls the rich heritage of the first Cunarder to bear the name.

What we love

Modern features combined with traditional and elegant décor reminiscent of the golden age of cruising makes this ship a firm favourite with her passengers.

Ways to make it better
Rooftop bar at The Peninsula Shanghai

Where to stay in Shanghai

So many fabulous hotels to choose from, but we would go for the Peninsula on the Bund.

Yuyuan Gardens, Shanghai

Another side to Shanghai

Wander the Yuyuan Gardens with its serene fish ponds, pretty pagodas and enjoy a rest from the crowds at the Mid-Lake Pavilion Teahouse, reached by a zigzag causeway designed to stop evil spirits.

Deluxe Harbourview Room at The Peninsula Hong Kong

Our favourite hotel in Hong Kong

The iconic Peninsula Hong Kong is, in our opinion, the city’s finest, and the Harbour View rooms offer picture postcard views of Victoria Harbour.

Lantau Island, Hong Kong

Explore Hong Kong

There’s more to Hong Kong than just the city, so explore Lantau Island, home to the Po Lin Monastery and its 34 metre high bronze Tian Tan Budda statue.
