So you've decided you want to see the South East Asia by cruise ship, A cruise is an excellent way to get an overview of the region. From the stunning temples to the golden Buddha's, craft markets, rice fields and palm lined beaches, Southeast Asia is truly a feast for the senses.

Roughly stretching from India, east to China and Japan, and south to the Indonesian Archipelago, Southeast Asia is a vast region. Many cruises depart from the hubs of Singapore, Hong Kong or Tianjin/Beijing, and may include ports in China, Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, South Korea and India. Optional pre-and post-cruise land packages take you further inland to famed places like the Taj Mahal, the Great Wall of China and Angkor Wat, the ancient city of temples in central Cambodia. Singapore is an oasis in Southeast Asia a city with great cultural diversity, well-working infrastructure and a very cosmopolitan feeling. Also known as a shoppers' Mecca in the Far East with plenty of international flavor. Singapore has a lot to offer in terms of dining and nightlife.

Itineraries are typically at least ten days long, and often two weeks or more, between about September and April. Sometimes longer routes also include ports in the Middle East, Australia and/or New Zealand. Keep in mind, with time zone changes and the great distance, flying to and from the United States will add on another few days to your trip. Best time to travel may be considered to be between May and November, though tropical storms can occur year round.

Attractions may be quite a distance from the port where the ship docks. For example, Bangkok is listed as a port of call on many cruise line itineraries, but keep in mind it's actually about a 2-hour drive each way from the industrial port of Laem Chabang. From Port Klang, Malaysia, the capital city of Kuala Lumpur is an hour to an hour-and-a-half drive each way. The temples of Southeast Asia are amazing places, but dress the part so you won't miss out. Shorts, halter tops or other revealing clothing are not appropriate. Ladies, a sarong makes a great impromptu skirt when visiting religious sites. Remove your shoes at the entrance.
