Day 1: Fly UK » Singapore
After an overnight flight from the UK.
Day 2-4: Singapore
On arrival, transfer to your 4* hotel for a 3-night stay.
Singapore is a city dedicated to business. The spires of its skyscrapers look like a big bar graph pointing to the sky. It is incredibly clean and crime is virtually unknown. But amid this obsessive neatness is a madly chaotic welter of peoples and cultures, drawn to Singapore in pursuit of the almighty Singapore dollar. Get a taste of colonial Singapore at Raffles, where the Singapore Sling was invented, Emerald Hill, with its charming pavilioned pre-war homes, the Victorian botanic garden and the green lawns of the Padang Cricket Club. And lest you forget, be sure to visit Orchard Road for non-stop shopping.
Gardens by the Bay tickets included.
Day 5: Embark Star Clipper
Check out of your 4* hotel and transfer to Singapore Marina Bay Cruise Terminal to embark Star Clipper and begin your 7 night Malaysia & Thailand Cruise.
Day 6: Malacca, Malaysia
Malacca. The Spice Trade. The two are inseparably associated. From the time of the early Renaissance explorers onward, it was the control of the Malaccan Straits that dictated who would own the most precious treasures of the Orient, its spices. The Portuguese, the Dutch and the British ruled Malacca at one time or another. Explore opulent private mansions built in the distinctive Peranakan colonial style and filled with priceless Chinese antiques.
Day 7: Day at Sea
Each Star Clippers ship offers a traditional and elegant way to see the world. Feel the wind fill the sails and gently carry you from one gorgeous destination to the next. During your time on board, you can choose to relax on a sun lounger or cool off in one of the pools on the top deck, while more adventurous passengers may enjoy the opportunity to climb the rigging or even have a go at steering the ship! Alternatively, you can wander the interior areas of the ship and discover relaxing lounges and a peaceful library.
Day 8: Langkawi, Malaysia
The breathtaking Malaysian island of Langkawi is one of a group of 104 islands scattered in the calm seas off the northern-most tip of Malaysia. The clear, tropical waters here provide some of the most spectacular swimming and diving in the world, while scenes of paddy fields contoured into limestone hillsides, lush tropical forests and high tumbling waterfalls, entrance nature lovers on land. Kuah Town, its capital, is a fascinating city of cross-cultures and offers duty-free shopping.
Day 9: Ko Adang - Butang Group, Thailand
The Butang Group of islands is about as far south as you can go on the western coast of Thailand. Protected by the Ko Tarutao National Park, this 61-island archipelago is only a stone’s throw from the Malaysian border and way, way off the radar screen of tourist groups. The only habitations on Ko Adang are the Park offices and since there aren’t many visitors, the pristine beaches and deserted coves are all yours.
Day 10: Phang Nga Bay & Ko Hong, Thailand
The sheer-sided sea mountains that rise vertically out of Phang Nga Bay form some of Thailand’s most spectacular scenery. Home to James Bond Island, the islands in this region feature wonderful white sandy beaches and superb coral reefs.
Ko Hong (“hong meaning room”), part of the Ko Hong archipelago is so named because of its large internal lagoon. One of the prettiest bays in the area, huge monolithic rocks provide shade all day long on a beautiful white silica sand beach.
Day 11: Ko Miang or Ko Similan, Thailand
The Similan Islands, or Nine Islands as they are also known because of their number, nestle in the Andaman Sea to the north of Phuket and are world-renowned among diving enthusiasts for underwater sightseeing. Accessible only by sea, The Similan Islands are stunningly beautiful with scenes straight out of your dreams of a tropical paradise.
