A relaxing Asian cruise-holiday break, visiting attractions in Singapore and Thailand, is available in March 2016 at an extremely attractive price, exclusively from Worldwide Cruise Centres.
Named ‘Asian Geteway’, the nine-night fly-cruise-and-stay holiday starts with a flight to Singapore, followed by a couple of nights pre-cruise accommodation in a four-star hotel. Next, a five-night cruise to Thailand (Bangkok and Ko Samui) aboard Princess Cruises’ Sapphire Princess, round-trip from Singapore, followed by another two nights in a four-star Singapore hotel, with included touring.
Prices start at just $1999 per person twin share, which covers return flights from Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne or Adelaide to Singapore, the cruise and the hotel stays. ‘Asian Getaway’ is valid for sale till 12 January 2016 unless sold out earlier.
‘Asian Getaway’ begins on 17 March 2016 with a flight to Singapore. After arrival, two nights in a four-star Singapore Hotel give time to explore the city. Maybe visit Marina Bay Sands and Lau Pa Sat Market or enjoy a seafood meal at Boat Quay.
Then, board the fabulous Sapphire Princess for a five-night cruise. The ship is 290 metres long and has 18 decks, three pools and five main dining rooms. Meals (excluding specialty restaurants) are included; so is most entertainment. Relax at the poolside bar under a huge glass-roofed conservatory. Don’t miss the Movies Under the Stars poolside screen.
First port of call is Laem Chabang in Thailand for Bangkok, a top global shopping destination and one of the world’s most popular cities with visitors. The only nation in Southeast Asia to escape colonial rule, Thailand offers a rich, appealing and ancient culture coupled with all the attractions of the 21st century.
Thailand’s third largest island, Koh Samui, is the next port of call. Think laid-back perfection, complete with powdery white beaches, crystalline waters and Buddhist temples or wats. The island’s first settlers were a mix of Hainanese coconut farmers and Malay fishermen.
A day at sea aboard Sapphire Princess follows as you sail back to Singapore, where another two nights in four-star style await. Included sightseeing includes Morning at the Zoo – complete with jungle breakfast. Leave the city behind as you head north to Mandai to visit one of the world’s top zoos. Spread over 28 hectares, Singapore Zoo protects over 3600 mammals, birds and reptiles – including rare and endangered species. Instead of cages, natural barriers like streams, rock walls and landscaping are used to separate animals from visitors. See it all on foot or from the comfort of your tram.
If you’re looking for a memorable photo, the obliging orang-utans provide a great backdrop.
