Day 9: Lombok, Indonesia
The crystalline waters of the Lombok Strait separate the island of Lombok from its neighbour Bali. For experienced travellers, Lombok will seem a throwback to Bali's halcyon days - reminiscent, indeed, of that island some 30 years ago, before globalisation brought a steady stream of development to its shores. Like its neighbour, Lombok is renowned for its traditional craft villages. Artisans produce the exquisite brocaded cloth called songket, elegant woodcarvings, and superb pottery made from local hillside clays. The island also possesses great natural beauty, from the dramatic rice terraces and plantations of the south to the tropical rain and cloud forests of the north. Lombok is home to Mt. Rinjani, Indonesia's second highest peak, a magnificent volcano soaring over 12,000 feet above sea level.
The Lombok Strait is part of the Wallace Line - a major eco-geographical boundary separating the flora and fauna of East Indonesia and Australia from West Indonesia. Many species found on Lombok, for example, are not found on neighbouring Bali, just 20 miles away across the strait.
Day 10-11: Days at Sea
Spend the day poolside, where you can enjoy hand-tossed pizza served to you just out of the oven, or enjoy the evening at Movies Under the Stars® with fresh popcorn. Don't forget to try The Sanctuary®, a tranquil haven exclusively for adults.
Day 12: Port Kelang (for Kuala Lumpur), Malaysia
From a lawless huddle of kampongs in the trackless jungle, Kuala Lumpur, the capital city has grown into a fascinating metropolis. Steel and glass towers stand side by side with graceful stone colonial buildings and mosques adorned with slender minarets. The commercial, financial, economic and cultural heart of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur (better known as KL), is a melting pot. Its population of 1.6 million is comprised of Malays, Chinese, Indians, and a mix of different cultures including Eurasians and others.
Kuala Lumpur is located at the confluence of the Klang and Gombak Rivers. The city was founded in the 1850s as a tin mining outpost.
Day 13: Penang, Malaysia
In 1786 Francis Light persuaded the Sultan of Kedah to cede Pulau Pinang - the "Isle of Betel nut" - to the English crown. Legend has it that Light persuaded his men to clear the overgrown island of Penang by firing a cannon filled with gold coins into the jungle as an incentive. The island was renamed Prince of Wales Island, and its major town was christened Georgetown after King George III. Whether the story is true or not, Penang quickly became a major trading port for tea, spices, china and cloth. Here European, Malaysian, Hindu, Arabic and Chinese cultures met, melded and flourished. Today George Town is a cosmopolitan city that has preserved its unique heritage and its exotic blend of cultures.
George Town is perhaps the best-preserved city in Southeast Asia. It boasts a European-style esplanade and a wealth of temples, mosques and Chinese clan houses. Listed as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site in 2008, this virgin paradise has no shortage of cultural sights and natural scenery.
Day 14: Langkawi, Malaysia
Langkawi comprises a group of 99 tropical islands lying off the northwestern coast of Peninsular Malaysia. The main island is known as Pulau Langkawi. The islands are shrouded with an intriguing heritage of myths and legends that feature ogres and gigantic birds, warriors and fairy princesses, battles and romance. Langkawi has been accorded the Geopark status by UNESCO, for its beautiful geological heritage of stunning landscapes, karsts, caves, sea-arches, stacks, glacial dropstones and fossils. With a geological history dating back 500 million years, the islands contain unique rock formations that stir the imagination and baffle the mind.
Day 15: Phuket, Thailand
Hailed as the "Pearl of the Andaman Sea," this island off Thailand's long southern coast boasts a colourful history. A crossroads for trade, Phuket has been a melting pot of Thai, Malay, Chinese and Western influences. Its importance over the past 500 years stemmed from the island's natural resources, which include tin, hardwoods and rubber. In the past half-century, Phuket has enjoyed wide popularity as one of the premier travel destinations in Southeast Asia. Travellers are drawn to the island's beaches, crystalline waters, and dramatic, forested hills.
Day 16: Day at Sea
Everything you need to refresh your body and mind is right on board. Indulge in a manicure, pedicure or a makeover in the salon, or a soothing massage in the Lotus Spa®. Or maybe it’s a brisk workout in the fitness centre, followed by a little “me time” in The Sanctuary, a tranquil retreat reserved just for adults.
Day 17: Disembark in Singapore
Disembark Sun Princess and a private transfer will take you to your 4* hotel for a 3 night stay.
Day 18-19: Singapore
Singapore - the very name summons visions of the mysterious East. The commercial centre of Southeast Asia, this island city-state of four million people is a metropolis of modern high-rise buildings, Chinese shop-houses with red-tiled roofs, sturdy Victorian buildings, Buddhist temples and Arab bazaars.
