The stone temples of Borobudur and Angkor Wat. Bali’s emerald rice paddies. Neon towers that scrape Singaporean skies. Wonders seldom cease on the world’s largest continent—and for every iconic landmark, there are captivating treasures kept secret on distant shores. Guided by our veteran team, search for the giant lizards of Komodo National Park or the orangutans of Sumatra. Enjoy Zodiac cruises in Thailand’s Phi Phi Islands or discover cultural melting pots in Malaysian ports from Malacca to Penang. Aboard our premier expedition fleet, see a secluded side of this rapidly changing region, where ancient cultures thrive in, Japanese samurai castles, villages along the Mekong river, and more.
