Day 1
24 May 2019
Singapore, Singapore
Raffles Singapore Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Our adventure begins in Singapore, the steamy air

enfolding around us. Our hotel, Raffles Singapore, is the

finest in the city. Much like a sanctuary, it shelters us from

the clamorous streets. We make ourselves at home in

spacious Stateroom Suites.

Day 2
25 May 2019
Singapore, Singapore
Raffles Singapore Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Idle away the morning in the glamorous confines of our residence before admiring the colourful, flower-covered undulations at the National Orchid Garden on a private tour. Then, choose a Your World experience:

- Aboard the Singapore GOURMETbus, delectable local fare is presented as we take in the city’s icons like the Singapore Flyer, National Gallery Singapore and Marina Bay Sands.

- Under the guidance of local chefs, learn how to cook authentic Singaporean dishes.

The first Singapore Sling cocktail was served at Raffles Singapore over 100 years ago. This afternoon we head to the bar and learn how to muddle and mix the original version during a private class before making our way to 1-Altitude for cocktails and dinner. The highest al fresco bar in the world reveals unforgettable views of the city.

Day 3
26 May 2019
Singapore, Singapore
EUROPA 2 Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Step beyond Singapore’s glitzy facade on your choice of Your World experiences:

- Explore back streets on a tour of Chinatown and Little India. Cultures come to life in these ethnic enclaves, and some of the best regional street food is on offer.

- Or perhaps stay cool at the heavily forested Singapore Zoo. Here, many of the animals roam freely among their natural habitats.

We applaud the city and our discovery with afternoon tea in the exquisite Lobby Lounge of our hotel. The dainty tradition has been served here for many decades.

With embarkation time upon us, we are transferred to the port and are welcomed aboard the EUROPA 2.

This evening, we sail up the Singapore Strait. Admire the city sparkling under the phosphorous glow of sunset.

Day 5

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Port Klang, Malaysia
EUROPA 2 Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

From shanty town to modern-day metropolis, Kuala Lumpur rapidly transformed into one of Asia’s most powerful cities. Approaching the city from Port Klang, we are privy to a kaleidoscope of cultural influences. Skyscrapers shadow ancient temples, and locals work beside migrants and expats.

Helping us come to grips with this mega city, you’re presented with a choice of two Your World experiences:

- Discover a pocket of Kuala Lumpur that rarely draws travellers, where we are offered an authentic glimpse into daily life. Enjoy coffee and cakes in the home of a local, then explore the stalls of Little India.

Description

From Singapore, we drift along the west coast of Malaysia and Thailand, where steamy viridescent rainforests and chalk-white sand dazzle against the unearthly blue-green colour of the water. Traditional fishing villages reveal values that have changed little in thousands of years, and landings on abandoned islands are honoured with perfectly warm days and wild sunsets. Then, across the Bay of Bengal, Sri Lanka’s numerous jewels shine with extraordinary brilliance.
