Kick things off with a night at leisure in the dazzling ‘Lion City’ of Singapore.

Then, it’s time to embark on your four night Thailand and Malaysia cruise to beautiful Phuket, the street art haven of Penang, and back to beautiful Singapore. Sailing aboard the 'Spectrum of the Seas', an innovative Royal Caribbean ship featuring a bungee trampoline, virtual reality adventures, and a delicious array of dining options, the journey is just as much a part of the experience. Ready to climb aboard?

Day 3 penang, malaysia 2:30pm - 10pm

An island state just off the coast of northwest Malaysia, Penang is rich in diverse cultural influences thanks to its history as a trading centre between India, China, Britain and the Middle East. Head to historic George Town, the island's capital city, where bicycles and trishaws (three-wheeled, pedal-powered vehicles) dart along narrow streets lined with mural-adorned buildings and varied architecture. Perhaps step into the oldest Anglican church in Southeast Asia at St George's, or check out the Kapitan Keling Mosque. Take the tram up to the cooler, minty-fresh air of Penang Hill – walk through the bird sanctuary or one of the nature trails, and take in views of the city below and the mountains in the distance.

Day 4 phuket, thailand 9am - 7pm

The island of Phuket is often called the Pearl of Thailand – and once you set foot on pristine beaches and see its crystalline blue water, you'll understand why. Perhaps start the day by diving right in – literally – at Kata Noi Beach, a smaller, more secluded spot where you can soak in the sun and sand and unwind. Then, head to the nearby Karon Viewpoint for unparalleled views of the Andaman Sea and the area's lush mountainous landscape. In town, you could see the Big Buddha of Phuket – the white marble likeness of the holy figure stands 45 metres tall. Then, the elaborate temple of Wat Chalong and its Grand Pagoda, where it's believed a splinter of bone from the Buddha himself resides.

Perhaps you might like to explore the city's Malay section on the Kampong Glam Heritage Trail, which will take you past Arabic-influenced mansions and the gold-dome-topped Masjid Sultan mosque. Experience the contrast between the lush rainforest flora of the Singapore Botanic Garden and the high-tech 'supertrees' and biodomes of Gardens by the Bay. You might like to complete your Singapore adventure with a panorama from the rooftop of the Marina Bay Sands or a Singapore Sling cocktail at the historical Raffles Hotel.
