Thailand and Malaysia Special Offer

Discover two of the most serene destinations in the world, Thailand and Malaysia, on this brand new cruise from lively Singapore to picture-postcard Phuket on board La Belle des Oceans.

Begin with an overnight stop in the thriving city of Singapore, a melting pot of cultures and nicknamed 'The Garden City' due to its abundance of verdant vegetation. A guided tour visits Merlion, a statue which represents Singapore's origin as a fishing village, before taking in a spectacular light and water show.

Malacca was once the centre of the Malay world and can be explored on a fascinating guided tour, while Port Klang is the gateway to the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur. It is a city of contrasts with soaring skyscrapers overlooking stunning colonial architecture and historic districts.

The beautiful archipelago of Langkawi is the next port of call. Enjoy amazing views during a ride on the SkyCab before walking over the magnificent SkyBridge. Spend a relaxing day on the idyllic beaches of Ko Muk and Koh Lanta, before cruising to Phang Nga Bay, where you will visit the famous "James Bond Island". A coach tour of Phuket, Thailand's largest island, concludes this superb holiday.
