Setting sail from Singapore

Singapore is one of the world's richest cities, with a standard of living to match, and in recent years it has moved on from its image as a sterile, overly officious nanny state to become one of the most dynamic and exciting cities in the region. 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.

Don't miss

There’s some serious green space in Singapore and it always feels as if the jungle is just waiting for us to turn our backs for a moment to take over. Seek out the parks and the gardens.

Arriving in Mombasa

On Kenya's coast is Mombasa, the city of salt and spice. Lots of history here, not least as this was a strategic trading post for Europeans making for Arabia, India and the Orient, and their counterparts in the other direction. Add to that the influence of the British, the influx of tourists in recent years, and of course the great African tribes, and you have a vibrant and colourful city of contrasts. Mombasa is gateway to some of the extraordinary national parks of East Africa, as well as being an appealing beach destination with some beautiful hotels.

Our tip

If you have never been to East Africa, take the opportunity to go on safari – it is the most magical experience, and you will be captivated both by the animals (you should see the big five) and the people, particularly the Masai.

Crystal Symphony in Sydney
Crystal Symphony - Seabreeze Penthouse Suite
Crystal Symphony - Silk Kitchen

Crystal have repeatedly been voted the World’s Best cruise line, and Crystal Symphony is certainly a top level classic, not to be missed.

What we love

Crystal Symphony is not a new ship, but you wouldn't know it, since she is subject to an ongoing refurbishment programme, which ensures that the environment is always perfect and the style contemporary. This is, in short, a ship constantly honed to perfection. But ultimately it's all about the unmatchable food and service.

Ways to make it better
The Fullerton hotel, Singapore

Our favourite hotel in Singapore

So many wonderful hotels. We like a lot of them, but our choice is the Fullerton.

Eastern and Oriental Express

Leave Singapore in style

If you’ve got time and the dates work, take the Eastern and Oriental Express train to Bangkok.

The Sands at Nomad hotel, Kenya

Where to stay in Mombasa

Beach-lovers will like the Sands at Nomad, though at Mundy we would rather be travelling inland in Kenya than staying on the beach.

Tsavo National Park, Kenya

Mombasa private tours

If you really can’t take the time to go on safari, at least go for the day to Tsavo East.
