UK - In flight
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your flight to Phuket.
On arrival, we’ll transfer to our hotel on the western coast of the island, the Kamala Beach Resort (4T+). You’re free to explore and we’ll enjoy dinner this evening.
Our tour of Phuket takes us to a rubber plantation, one of the island’s main industries, then Tong Sai National Park, a lush expanse of jungle teeming with wildlife. At the Gibbon Rehabilitation Project, we learn about protecting the native gibbon population and their natural habitats. We’ll take a look at Phuket’s past at the Kathu Mining Museum, and stop at a cashew nut factory, another major industry in Phuket, before visiting Wat Prathong, one of the oldest Buddhist temples in Phuket.
A day to relax, or take an optional excursion to Koh Yao Noi, a sleepy island where the locals rely on fishing, farming and other small businesses for income. Meet friendly residents, see how rubber trees are hand-tapped for sap, witness batik making, take lunch in a family home, and wander through the village.
Days 5 - 6 - Phuket (overnight)
We transfer to the port to embark Boudicca. The ship remains here until late tomorrow evening, so you have plenty of time to continue exploring. The Thalang National Museum has fascinating displays; take an excursion to Wat Chalong Temple, the centre for Buddhism in Phuket; or see the 45m-high Big Buddha in the Nakkerd Hills.
Day 7 - Sabang, Weh Island, Sumatra, Indonesia
Remote Weh Island has managed to stay off Indonesia’s well-beaten track. Much of the island is part of a National Wildlife Protection Area, beautifully unspoilt with gorgeous beaches, dense jungle full of wildlife and coral reefs that offer some of the best snorkelling and scuba diving in Southeast Asia.
Day 8 - At sea
Days 9 - 10 - Singapore (overnight)
This dynamic city-state has the world’s third densest population, yet it is passionately working towards its dream of a ‘City in a Garden’. Explore Singapore and you may spot a cricket pitch left from colonial days, or the 19th century Buddha Tooth Relic Temple in Chinatown. Venture out of the centre of skyscrapers and you will the UNESCO-listed Singapore Botanic Gardens.
Days 11 - 12 - At sea
Day 13 - Semarang, Java, Indonesia
Semarang’s authentic Chinatown rubs shoulders with both modern and Dutch Colonial buildings, while temples, mosques and churches add to the town's ethnic mix. The sensational Borobudur Temple, first built in the 8th and 9th centuries, is the world’s largest Buddhist temple, built in a series of five steps decorated with hundreds of panels depicting the road to enlightenment. Alternatively, explore the island’s vast rural spaces and rice paddies.
Day 14 - At sea
Day 15 - Lembar, Lombok
Lombok has managed to remain relatively untouched despite being just as beguiling and beautiful as its better-known neighbours. Take time to explore unspoilt beaches and spectacular volcanic landscapes - Gunung Rinjani, Indonesia’s second highest volcano, is a haven for wildlife such as birds and monkeys. Spend time in the quiet town of Lembar, or visit the island’s capital.
Day 16 - Komodo
The Indonesian island of Komodo is a combination of rusty-red volcanic hills, savannah and forests, and home to the 3m-long Komodo dragon, the world’s largest living lizard. The surrounding seas have extensive coral reefs and mangrove swamps, and are occupied by sharks, dolphins, manta rays, sea turtles and whales. Ship to shore tender service.
Days 17 - 18 - Benoa, Bali (overnight)
Bali is one of Earth's most idyllic places, with many attractions including incredible temples, beautiful rice fields, forests filled with flora and fauna, rugged coasts and sandy beaches. The friendly locals create a warm, inviting atmosphere, encouraging you to explore and as the ship docks for two nights here, there is plenty of time to do so.
Day 19 - Benoa, Bali - Denpasar - In flight
We disembark this morning in Benoa and transfer to the Hilton Garden Inn at Ngurah Rai International Airport. There will be time to relax with access to a day room, before we make the short walk to the airport for our return flight to the UK.
Day 20 UK
Upon arrival, your Titan vehicle will be waiting for the journey home.
