UK - In flight
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your flight to Bangkok.
We arrive in Bangkok and transfer to the elegant Anantara Riverside (4T+), to enjoy the rest of the day.
The Grand Palace is one of Bangkok's most spectacular and popular attractions. Explore the vast complex of temples and palaces, and view the 2ft-tall Emerald Buddha, meticulously carved from a single block of jade. We then visit Wat Pho, Bangkok’s oldest temple and home to the magnificent 151ft-long reclining Buddha, covered in gold leaf.
Bangkok - Kanchanaburi
We visit a unique country market along the railway tracks on our journey to Kanchanaburi, where we take lunch near the famous Bridge on the River Kwai. We visit the Thailand-Burma Railway Centre Museum, dedicated to the railway built by the Imperial Japanese Army and Allied prisoners of World War II, before arriving at our hotel, the Float House River Kwai Resort in Kanchanaburi (4T+). Floating in the River Kwai, it is only accessible by boat.
Visit Elephant Haven, where we learn how the elephant freedom project works towards providing rescued elephants the opportunity to roam freely in natural habitats. The afternoon is at leisure back in our peaceful resort, surrounded by lush forests, towering limestone mountains and the historic river.
Day 6 - Kanchanaburi - Laem Chabang
We transfer to Laem Chabang, where we embark the luxurious Seven Seas Mariner® (5T). After our cruise begins early this evening, take a seat at your choice of restaurant to enjoy the first of many sublime meals on board.
Day 7 - Koh Samui
Naturally beautiful Koh Samui is Thailand’s third largest island, deservedly known as the Island of Coconuts. A selection of excursions allow you to explore the unique lifestyle and culture on a journey through lush coconut plantations, a chance to learn the secrets of Thai cuisine at a traditional cooking class or a visit to Big Buddha Temple and its 36ft-tall golden statue, which can be seen for miles. Ship to shore tender service.
Day 8 - Sihanoukville, Cambodia
Sihanoukville sits on the beautiful island-studded Bay of Thailand. Choose to visit the town’s pagodas and bustling market, or spend your day exploring Ream National Park, a wonderland of evergreen forests and mangrove swamps teeming with indigenous wildlife including monkeys and butterflies. On a boat ride down the mangrove-lined Prek Toeuk Sap River, look out for kites, eagles, storks and egrets. Or maybe head to Phnom Penh, Cambodia's capital, to see the lavish Royal Palace complex and impressive Silver Pagoda.
Days 9-10 - At sea
Day 11 - Muara, Brunei
The small country of Brunei offers many beautiful markets, incredible landmarks and unblemished rainforest. You may have the opportunity to cruise to a water village; half of Brunei’s population used to live in stilt villages - entire communities including schools and mosques - built along Brunei River, and it is still a popular lifestyle today.
Day 12 - Kota Kinabalu, Borneo, Malaysia
Bustling Kota Kinabalu is diverse with gold-domed mosques and modern high-rises. Perhaps take an excursion to Kinabalu Park, which will take you through a jungle paradise, with thousands of orchids and several carnivorous plants, to one of the highest mountains in Southeast Asia. Ship to shore tender service.
Day 13 - At sea
Days 14-15 - Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam (overnight)
Enjoy two days in Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh City (known as Saigon until 1976), where iconic buildings overlook colourful markets and the endless chaotic stream of bicycles and motorbikes, while temples and the fantastic Botanical Gardens offer a tranquil break. Alternatively, visit the famous 120 mile-long Cu Chi Tunnels that protected thousands of Vietnamese during the war, before spending your evening at a traditional musical performance.
Day 16 - At sea
Day 17 - Chan May (Hue/Danang)
Chan May offers access to two fascinating places. Hue is a reminder of Vietnam’s imperial past with lovely temples, pagodas and an imposing, moated citadel; and Danang is home to the famously beautiful China Beach and one of the world's longest and highest cable car systems - a ride to the top of Bana Hill (a name that undermines its magnificent 1487m height) is rewarded with scenic beauty.
Days 18-19 - Hanoi (Halong Bay) (overnight)
Arriving at lunchtime and remaining overnight allows time to discover Hanoi, a capital city where scooters weave along streets marked by both French and Chinese occupation; and experience Vietnam's greatest natural wonder - the spectacular Halong Bay, famous for containing over 1,600 mountainous islands cloaked in tropical foliage. Ship to shore tender service.
Day 20 - At sea
Day 21 - Hong Kong, China (overnight)
Hong Kong’s enormous harbour and vast industrialisation make it a major Asian crossroad, and perhaps the best place to shop in the world. Perhaps take a tour of Lantau Island and Po Lin Monastery, the hub of Buddhism in Hong Kong, or take a tour through the city to discover its traditions, the ancient temples and speciality shops selling Chinese silks, tea and herbal medicine.
Hong Kong - In flight
We disembark this morning and take a city tour of Hong Kong, which includes a visit to Victoria Peak for excellent views across the harbour and a journey on the Peak Tram. Later, we transfer to the airport for your overnight return flight to the UK.
Day 23 UK
Upon arrival, your Titan vehicle will be waiting for the journey home.
