WHEN IT COMES TO ASIA, IT’S BOTH AN EXOTIC JOURNEY AND A BEGUILING DESTINATION.
Ahh, Asia. How we love you so…and how to even begin to describe the sheer spectacle of ancient temples wedged between soaring skyscrapers? Or lush green islands a stone’s throw away from the sights, sounds, and smells of pulsating cities? Or paying 30 cents to hop aboard a double-decker tram, then pass by homes priced at over $10,000 USD per square foot?
It’s this weird, wonderful, and bewildering juxtaposition of East meets West, traditional versus modern, opulent wealth paired with far-flung villages, which is so exciting to millions of travelers from all over the world. It’s also why you should come with us to Asia.
With a greatest hits list of Asian cities like Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai, Beijing, Mumbai, and Bangkok, we’ll take you to places you really will love. And with longer stays, more overnights and night touringSM in off-the-beaten-path destinations like Oman, Myanmar, and Vietnam’s Halong Bay, you’ll have more time to do things like hop aboard a dhow river cruise, explore the land of pagodas, and go “where the dragon descends into the sea.”
Consider this just a sampler of all the incredible and occasionally crazy things we have in store for you. Cheers to an AzaAsian journey of a lifetime!
According to Fodor’s Travel, Southeast Asia is “the new destination du jour for luxury-minded travelers who appreciate great value.” Here at Azamara Club Cruises®, we say Southeast Asia is the place to be if you’re looking for fantastic weather, beautiful beaches, a laid-back lifestyle, a cornucopia of cultures, and some of the best food on Earth—and oh yes, terrific prices on just about everything.

Pop quiz time! Without looking any of this up on Google, where in the world can you enter a Forbidden City (that one’s easy), make a French Concession connection, and trip the night fantastic in the streets of Lan Kwai Fong? Or take a hike through Takoro Gorge, head to Itaewon for shopping, or see Sakurajima blow its top?
If you answer, “China, Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan,” to the questions above, you’re absolutely correct, but nowhere near specific enough. We’ll show you all the answers, and the beautiful places, of Northeast Asia.
MIDDLE EAST & ARABIAN GULF
MIDDLE EAST & ARABIAN GULF
Where do we begin with the Middle East and Arabian Gulf? It’s a region where you can stroll through old-town souks and colorful bazaars then hit the ski slopes inside a mall. Where you can go on a jeep safari tour, kayak with dolphins, and dive for pearls…then visit the largest mosques in the world, the Tree of Life, and UNESCO World Heritage sites that date back to 3,000 BC.
So throw any and all preconceived ideas out the door. Because once you’ve traveled with us to places like the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Bahrain, and Qatar, you’ll really get to know the mesmerizing Middle East.
