South East Asia CruiseThailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Philippines & Singapore 19 day cruise/tour - November 8, 2017
The truth is, this tour/cruise was put together so Michael Wilcox could see more places on his bucket list. You are invited to come along with him. Michael Wilcox, your guest educator on this trip, has not been to Ho Chi Min or Danang in Vietnam. He has not been to the Philippines or the island of Borneo. When we found a cruise that would take us to these wonderful places, we jumped on it. We added to the cruise a tour of Angkor Wat in Cambodia and Bangkok in Thailand.
Come join with Michael Wilcox on this wonderful Asian cruise. We have included a land tour that will start in Angkor Wat in Cambodia; then the group flies to Bangkok to visit the beautiful palaces and grounds of the King of Thailand. We will then fly to Ho Chi Min in Vietnam to board our Celebrity Cruise Ship. The ports of call will include: Ho Chi Min Vietnam, Danang Vietnam, Hong Kong China, Manila & Boracay in the Philippines, Kota Kinabalu Malaysia (on the island of Borneo), and last but not least, the beautiful city of Singapore. November is the best time of year in this part of the world as there is less heat and less humidity during November.

Our Visit to Angkor Wat will be another fantastic highlight day! The crowning jewel of Khmer architecture, ANGKOR WAT is the national symbol and a favorite of any visit to Cambodia. The largest, best preserved, and most religiously significant of the Angkor temples, Angkor impresses visitors both by its sheer scale and beautifully proportioned layout, as well as the delicate artistry of its carvings. To approach the temple you must cross the vast moat, continuing along a broad causeway lined with naga balustrades. As you enter the main building you will ascend through a series of galleries and courtyards before reaching the central sanctuary, which offers beautiful views back over the causeway and across the surrounding countryside. On the way we stop to enjoy the intricate stone carvings that adorn nearly every surface, with some 1,700 Apsaras, or celestial dancers, sculpted into the walls. Along the outer gallery walls run the longest continuous bas-relief in the world, which narrates stories from Hindu mythology, including the famous Churning of the Ocean of Milk. Angkor Wat is stunning at any time of the day.
Day 5: November 12: Siem Reap – Bangkok, Thailand
Mid-morning flight to Bangkok. Upon arrival, we will transfer to your deluxe hotel. You will have some time to explore and enjoy the area.
Day 6: November 13: Bangkok to Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam
This morning we will visit to THE ROYAL GRAND PALACE, the nation’s landmark and most praised royal monument. This is the former royal residence of the Chakri Kings. The palace is a perfect example of an ancient Siamese court. Built in 1782 by King Rama I, it was the center of power for more than 150 years. Today, the Palace is Bangkok’s major landmark and most popular tourist attraction. WAT PHRA KAEW, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, is located right next to the Grand Palace and together form perhaps the greatest spectacle for the visitor to Bangkok. It consists of over 100 brightly colored buildings, golden spires and glittering mosaics, and dates back to 1782 when Bangkok was founded. When you enter the compound you first see Wat Phra Kaew and the nearby attractions, and then move on to the Grand Palace afterwards. Photography is permitted in the Royal Palace Grounds and in the compounds of the Emerald Buddha Temple, but not inside the buildings. Later this afternoon we will fly to Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam.
Day 10: November 17: Fun Day At Sea
