As the gateway to Southeast Asia, Singapore is the choice homeport on many cruise routes. Ideally located at the heart of Southeast Asia, Singapore is a cruising hub with extended travelling routes to the region’s old world charms and exciting new world attractions.
As a passageway to the rest of the region, cruising to or from Singapore could take you to lush tropical rainforests, colourful open air markets, mystifying ancient cities and white sand beaches. Shop and dine with the family in vibrant cities like Ho Chi Minh and Kuala Lumpur, or kick back on the world-renowned beaches of Bali, Phuket, Langkawi or Ha Long Bay. To get closer to nature, see the pre-historic dragons of Komodo in Indonesia’s Komodo National Park or head to the Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre in Borneo. With a total of 28 UNESCO World Heritage sites in the region, including Cambodia’s architectural ruins in Angkor, Indonesia’s Borobudur temple compounds and Thailand’s historic city of Ayutthaya, no two countries in Southeast Asia offer the same experience.
Cruising on the horizon, the captivating view of Singapore’s skyline will transform your cruise holiday into the voyage of a lifetime.
With international and regional full-service and budget flights, rail services through Malaysia to Thailand, plus two cruise terminals and three ferry terminals, arriving in or departing from Singapore is a breeze. From short excursions to leisure world cruises—on contemporary premium liners or luxury and expedition cruise ships—cruising to or from Singapore opens the doors to a world of travel options.
