Singapore to Kuching: The Spice Route Adventure
8 - 20 June 2014
This is a cruise of huge diversity. You will start from the tip of the Malay Peninsula, cross the South China Sea along a chain of Indonesian archipelagos all the way to Sarawak on Borneo. Both Singapore and Kuching have international airports connecting you globally.
Explore this international hub for finance, trade, shopping and foodies – maybe have a drink at the legendary Raffles Hotel – before you step aboard our classic yacht in Singapore. Within no time, the hustle and bustle of city life will seem ages away as we sail onto the open ocean.
Time magazine once chose Malaysia’s Tioman Island as one of the world’s five most beautiful islands. The densely forested isle is sparsely inhabited and surrounded by protected coral reefs, making it an amazing scuba diving and snorkelling spot.
From Tioman, we sail towards the rising sun. Our next stop is Indonesia's Anambas group, rated by CNN as one of Asia's top five island paradises. The main island offers a naturally protected lagoon with clear blue waters and corals. There is a giant waterfall that offers a secluded picnic spot.
We will continue eastward with fantastic opportunities for catching fresh fish along the way! You choose whether to try a night sail or to explore the remote Natuna Islands. The 300 islands are famous for their incredible bird life and for a rare monkey species found only there.
Welcome to the world’s third-largest island, at the heart of maritime Southeast Asia: Borneo! We will end our cruise at Kuching, a charming city with a fascinating colonial history. This is the perfect launch pad for anyone planning to explore the wonders of Borneo!
