Begin your adventure in Tokyo, a place so deliciously different from what we know. A place where the uber hip and quietly conservative share space in a wonderful mix of neon lights, world-class food, Zen contemplation and downright fun. Cherry blossoms framing a silhouette of Mt. Fuji, sushi and ramen, karaoke and kimonos – Japan is a place so deeply rooted in tradition yet so welcoming of the future, and it all coalesces 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. In recent years, awe-inspiring, futuristic attractions like Gardens by the Bay and Marina Bay Sands have enhanced the city skyline. However, the country still retains its charming, historic neighborhoods crisscrossed by crowded side streets still teeming with traditional vendor stalls. Nicknamed, the “City in a Garden”, Singapore is covered in greenery and full of impressive gardens, such as the Singapore Botanic Garden which is home to the world’s largest orchid display.

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.
