South East Asia Cruises

If you're looking to experience one of the most varied and exciting holidays in the world, a South East Asia cruise is the perfect option. Made up of 11 countries, including Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam, this huge part of the world is a truly incredible destination. Surrounded by beautiful coastlines with endless stretches of sandy beach facing sparkling water, stepping away from the ocean will take you to even more beautiful spots. From tropical rainforest thriving with wildlife to cities that are full of life and light and ancient monuments that transport you back to a time gone by, a cruise to Southeast Asia will be like nothing you've ever experienced before.

South East Asia Cruise Deals

With its sweeping coastlines, bustling cities and vibrant, green landscapes, it's no surprise South East Asia cruises are growing in popularity. With itineraries typically lasting between 7 and 14 nights, you'll have plenty of time to get to the heart of this part of the world, and if you'd rather extend your cruise you can always choose a cruise and stay package, giving you longer to explore at the beginning or end of your journey. What's more, with so many cruise lines sailing in Southeast Asia, you can choose from a river cruise, expedition cruise or even a tall ship voyage.

Best time for a South East Asia cruise

Covering such a huge land mass, the climate in Southeast Asia varies drastically between countries and regions. However, to make the most out of the dry weather, most cruises operate from November to March, although if you travel at the beginning or end of the season fares are likely to be lower and destinations less crowded.

What to do during a cruise around Southeast Asia

No matter how you're looking to spend your cruise, Southeast Asia really does have it all. For the adventurous type there's plenty of opportunity to get out and explore, from watersports off the stunning coastline to hikes through the tropical scenery. Alternatively, if you'd like to learn more about the history of the countries across Southeast Asia, there are plenty of ancient temples and historical monuments to discover, as well as thriving cities which throw you deep into local life. However, a cruise doesn't have to be completely fast-paced, so if you'd rather take it slower you could always spend a few hours lounging on the beach and lapping up the sunshine.

Top Southeast Asia Cruise Destinations and Shore Excursions

From huge, brightly-lit cities to tranquil, colourful bays, each destination in Southeast Asia has something different to offer. While ports of call vary between itineraries, here are a few highlights:

South East Asia cruise to Bali

This large island is becoming more and more popular as a port of call for cruises to Southeast Asia and it's easy to see why. Boasting verdant hilly terrains, forests full of native wildlife, unrivalled beaches and traditional villages, you can spend your days swimming in the sea, hiking through nature or browsing the local crafts before tucking into some delicious cuisine.

South East Asia cruise to Bangkok

No matter whether you're discovering the city by tuk tuk, sampling authentic thai cuisine at the many restaurants and street vendors or admiring the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, a shore excursion to lively Bangkok will certainly leave a lasting impression on you.

South East Asia cruise to Halong Bay

With its 2,000 limestone islands rising high out of the sparkling waters, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Halong Bay is a highlight for many cruisers. For a truly unique experience, and undoubtedly one of the best ways to admire this spectacular sight, take a junk ship journey around them.
