Cruising down the Mekong River, checking out the temples lining the banks of the Irrawaddy in Myanmar, and seeing the awe-inspiring Three Gorges in China – there’s some sights in Asia you can only see by water. Travelling in traditional junks and longboats just adds to the experience you’ll have cruising in Asia. It’s also a way to see centuries-old cultures and lifestyles as they have existed for generations.
Riverboat cruises are not the only way to see the historic monuments of Asia. Plenty of ocean liners also plot their course through Asia where you can take in little islands and big city sights, from cruises to Singapore and Hong Kong to seeing Indonesia in a whole new light – all while enjoying all the onboard amenities and all-inclusive prices on your sea days onboard.
You can choose to depart for Asia on a 12-night or longer cruise from either the west coast or the east coast of Australia, or fly to the destination of your choice and join a river cruise in Vietnam, Cambodia, India or Myanmar. There’s heaps of cheap cruise deals that’ll save you a bundle on your meals, accommodation and onboard activities onboard an Asia cruise.
