Hong Kong, Singapore & Bangkok

Just as many newbies to Europe book their first European vacation tour to the 3 big cities: London, Paris, and Rome, so do visitors to Asia. Hong Kong, Singapore, and Bangkok have long been an easy and interesting introduction to Asia.

Victoria Peak   While some tours are more guided than others, here's a brief overview of what you might expect. First of all, you start in the one-of-a kind harbor city of Hong Kong. The best way to see it is to take a cable car up Victoria Peak for a panoramic view of the city, or enjoy a Sampan ride on the harbor.
Reserve some f ree time to visit the giant Buddha on Lantau Island or take in some gambling at one of the casinos in Macau, relish traditional British “High Tea” at the Peninsula Hotel, and sample local cuisine on Lan Kwai Fong Street.

Merlion in Singapore   Then you fly to vibrant Singapore, where the East and West meet harmoniously. After your sightseeing tour you can explore the city on your own. Sample the local cuisine at Singapore's famous Lau Pa Sat food court, and visit the nearby island resort of Sentosa where you will enjoy a variety of activities and attractions.
Final stop is exciting and colorful Bangkok. Your sightseeing tour will cover the highlights and leave you plenty of time for personal discoveries. Take a day trip to the floating market at Damnoen Saduak, eat dinner as you cruise on the Chao Phraya River, and relax at a luxurious spa.
