Sailing from Singapore
Setting sail from Singapore
Singapore’s heritage as an important trading post means that there is a real cultural mix, with four official languages: English, Chinese, Malay and Tamil. Step away from the gleaming towers and you’ll find yourself transported into another world amongst the intoxicating streets of Chinatown and Little India.
The port of Malacca has a rich multicultural heritage, a product of its history as an important trading hub. Over the years the Arabs, Portuguese, Dutch and British all held sway here, which is reflected today in the city’s eclectic architecture and unique cuisine.
The busy Sumatran port of Belawan is the gateway to Gunung Leuser National Park, a remarkably biodiverse habitat that receives relatively few visitors. The jungle is home to some of the world’s most endangered species, with a decent chance of spotting wild orangutans.
Myanmar (Burma): Myauk Phyu, Lampi National Park, Bo Cho Island, Frost Island, Kyet Mau Island
Thailand: Ko Surin Tai
Arriving in Phuket
Phuket is Thailand's most popular tourist destination, and it's true that it can be crowded and overdeveloped in places, but it's not hard to escape the masses and be reminded why this idyllic island is known as the 'Pearl of the Andaman'. As well as a plethora of luxury resorts, Phuket has a charming old town replete with pretty Sino-Portuguese architecture, and acts as a jump-off point for exploring nearby islands and coastline. Koh Phing Pan, better known as James Bond Island, and Ko Phi Phi are breathtakingly beautiful, as are the limestone formations that surround the mainland town of Krabi.
There are so many temples, but we really like Wat Srisoonthorn with the reclining Buddha – very peaceful and lots to see.

Tailor-make your trip
Our favourite hotel in Singapore
So many wonderful hotels. We like a lot of them, but our choice is the Fullerton.
Leave Singapore in style
If you’ve got time and the dates work, take the Eastern and Oriental Express train to Bangkok.
Where to stay in Phuket
So much choice! For something a bit different, we like the Keemala, 38 villas each with private pool.
To see the islands, make an early start, rent a long tail boat, and ask to go away from the crowds.
