Ports of Call
Da Nang, Vietnam - Located on the South China Sea, Da Nang is a major port city and your gateway to the natural and ancient wonders of Vietnam. Gaze upon the five peaks of the Marble Mountains - long a source of inspiration for Vietnamese artisans; visit the palace and pavilions of Hue, the Imperial City of the Nguyen emperors; and explore the charming merchant town of Hoi An and nearby China Beach.
Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam - Ho Chi Minh is Vietnam's largest and most famous city and is surrounded by rivers and canals. During the 14th century this city was known as Prey Nokor and was nothing more than a trading post. Slowly it grew into a small town, similar to the nearby traditional Cambodian villages. By the 18th century, the Lords of Hue, under the Nguyens, had established control of the trade in Prey Nokor and renamed the city Saigon. From 1833 until 1836, the tight control of the Nguyen leadership provoked a strong uprising, leading to great destruction and massacre until the intervention of the French in 1859. During the Vietnam War, Saigon's population nearly tripled and the city grew uncontrollably. In 1975, at the end of the war, North Vietnam had defeated South Vietnam after 30 years of battle. The new communist regime changed the official name of the city of Saigon to Ho Chi Minh and began to rebuild its economic and social structure.
Hong Kong, China - From Victoria Peak, the Hong Kong metropolis is all primary colors and neon, commerce and capitalism. Yet just beyond the highrises are the Fragrant Harbour, Stanley Market, and mainland old China, complete with rice paddies and coolie hats.
Kaohsiung, Taiwan - Colonization by the Dutch in the 17th century has left an ample architectural legacy, as did Taiwan's rule by Japan from 1895-1945. Grab a coffee at the former British Consulate, a landmark overlooking the bay. Art lovers can enjoy the outdoors and contemporary sculptures at the Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts' Sculpture Park, and for a spiritual experience, a visit to the Fo Guang Shan Buddha Memorial Centre, with the world's largest sitting Buddha, is highly recommended.
Nha Trang, Vietnam - White sand beaches, turquoise waters, beachfront cafes. Nha Trang's days as an underappreciated treasure are over. Still very much intact since the 7th century are the venerated towers of the Cham Ponagar Temple complex. Sample shore excursions: Nha Trang City Tour; Nha Trang Countryside.
Sanya, China - Sanya boasts splendid beaches stretching for miles and offers water sports from snorkeling to jet skiing. Asian Dragon Bay is one of the most famously scenic spots on Hainan, a tropical Chinese island that has been called ?China?s Hawai`i.? Other popular attractions include Nanwan Monkey Island, home to more than 1,800 endangered macaque monkeys, and the 354-feet-tall statue of the Buddhist goddess of mercy, Guanyin of the South Sea of Sanya, erected on its own island just off the coast.
Singapore - It's an island city-state, a World War II battleground, a global economic superstar, and a crossroads of the world. Cruise to Singapore with Holland America Line and in the space of a few hours you can relax in a Chinese teahouse, purchase a colorful sari in Little India and visit the gold-domed Sultan Mosque.
