From the jungles of India’s Ranthambore Tiger Reserve to cosmopolitan Singapore, Ecruising’s 28-night Golden Indian Journey & the Far East is a chance to experience some of the Sub-Continent and Southeast Asia’s most intriguing destinations.

Kicking off in India’s capital, Delhi on 19 November 2019, your first eight days will be spent exploring all the colour, history, culture, cuisine and wildlife of one of the world’s most fascinating countries. All the iconic attractions in northern India are included – Old and New Delhi; the impressive Agra Fort and Taj Mahal; the legendary Pink City of Jaipur with its famed Hawa Mahal, the Palace of Winds; the 500 year old hilltop fortress of Amber; the 16th century historical town of Fatehpur Sikri built by the Mughal Emperor Akbar; and an exciting safari in search of the elusive Royal Bengal Tiger in Ranthambore Tiger Reserve.

Prepare to be amazed by vibrant bazaars, awe-inspiring monuments, famous landmarks and prime tiger viewing territory, all while receiving Ecruising’s customary service and style and some of the country’s finest hotels and resorts including Le Meridien in Delhi, Ranthambore’s Juna Mahal and The Trident hotels in Jaipur and Agra. Land transport is in comfort via air-conditioned train and vehicles, and there are expert private guides on hand to bring your journey to life every step of the way.

On 26 November, the next exciting phase of your itinerary begins with a flight to Dubai from Delhi where you’ll spend two nights in the celebrated Raffles Dubai, a stunning landmark on Dubai’s skyline inspired by the great pyramids of Egypt. Here, shopaholics will have an opportunity to indulge in the City’s legendary shops and bazaars, while culture buffs can enjoy a half day heritage tour of Old Dubai, before embarking on a 17-night cruise to Singapore on board the spectacular Norwegian Jade.

From the modern marvels of Dubai to the bustling metropolis of Singapore, cruise highlights include stops at the Goan port of Mormugao in India’s south and chance to dip into the region’s natural beauty with a day of sun, sand and spices, snorkelling off one of the expansive beaches or touring a local spice farm; the Maldives’ capital Malé, famous for its mosques and colourful buildings; and the Sri Lankan city of Colombo, with its eclectic cross-section of Buddhist temples, bustling street markets and scenic ocean views. An overnight stay in Phuket in Thailand is a chance to discover the resort city’s many facets, from hiking in the breathtaking Ao Phang Nga National Park, lounging beachside or touring its impressive temples, while a day in Georgetown in Malaysia’s Penang is an opportunity to savour some of Asia’s best street food – the famed Nonya and Peranakan cuisine, and immerse yourself in the city’s impressive colonial heritage.

Arriving in Singapore on 15 December, your last two nights will be spent at the charming Fullerton Hotel Singapore, where you can undertake a little last-minute Christmas shopping and indulge in the delicious Hawker food for which the city is rightly famous, before departing on your homeward flight on 17 December 2019.
