Orient Adventure itinerary

Prepare for an adventure through three of Asia’s most iconic cities: Tokyo, Singapore and Hong Kong. Among the most modern in the world, each still perfectly maintains an aromatic blend of historic sites, traditional culture, and food that has been simmering for centuries.

You’ll begin your adventure in Tokyo, a place so deliciously different from what we know: cherry blossoms framing a silhouette of Mt. Fuji, sushi and ramen, karaoke and kimonos, a place so deeply rooted in process and tradition yet so welcoming of the future. And all coalesce into a perfectly preened bonsai tree for the inquisitive traveler. Then, continue on to Singapore, a city state that warmly embraces the kaleidoscope of peoples that call the country home. This melting pot has left a lasting impact on the vibrant culinary scene, one of Southeast Asia’s best. Futuristic attractions like Gardens by the Bay and Marina Bay Sands have enhanced the city skyline. However, the country still retains its charming, temple and street-food laden neighborhoods. Finally, explore Hong Kong, a truly cosmopolitan mélange known for its glorious harbor, excellent shopping, renowned restaurants, and perhaps the best nighttime skyline in the world. Hong Kong has it all!

So that we can offer you the best deals, our packages are, like most hotels and cruises, priced based on double occupancy rooms or cabins. We charge solo travelers an extra fee to cover the extra costs of single occupancy rooms or cabins. (Consider: if you booked a $200/night hotel room solo, you would pay the $200 yourself; but if a couple booked the same room, each one would pay only $100.) But you only pay extra for the rooms or cabins, nothing else, including meals, sightseeing, tips, etc.
