It’s the hidden corners of Asia’s islands that make the region so tempting to explore – and our small ships can get you there.

Bali’s Kuta is paradise enough for most tourists, but at the volcanic islands of Satonda and Banta you’ll find some of the best underwater life in Indonesia. The beaches of Penang and Phuket are beloved for good reason, but the sandy shores of the islands of Tarutao National Park are just as enticing – and a lot less crowded. Cruising Asia takes you to essential treasures that can’t be ignored, but it the surprise along the way that make for an exceptional journey.

On the Malaysian island of Penang, modern Christian churches stand down the road from Islamic mosques and ancient Buddhist temples. The walls of UNESCO World Heritage buildings serve as canvases for international street artists. Historic Chinese shopfronts house trendy cafes and local open-air markets sell some of South East Asia’s tastiest street food.

Rinca Island of Indonesia green mountains and the see side view

Comb the wilds of Rinca Island

Indonesia’s Rinca Island is the lesser-known sister to Komodo Island. It’s a place to witness the famed Komodo dragon in its natural surrounds without the distraction of the selfie-sticks in droves. Some of the dragons can grow to three metres (10 feet) in length, and the population on the island is so dense that sightings are almost guaranteed.

Escape to Satonda Island

At the centre of remote Satonda Island, Indonesia, lie the crystal blue waters of a flooded volcanic crater lake. It’s an ideal spot for swimming and snorkelling. Before you leave, hang a rock from one of the trees around the lake to have your wish come true.
