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. Ha Long Bay is a must-visit, but don’t miss the waterways and deep limestone caves of Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, whose splendour much of the world doesn’t yet know. 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.

Buddhist temple in Penang island of Malaysia

Pursue the unpredictable in Penang

On the Malaysian island of Penang, modern Christian churches stand down the road from Islamic mosques and ancient Buddhist temples.

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.

Mui Ne beach sunset view

Discover the dunes of Mui Ne

Drop anchor at Phan Thiet to go sand-sledding down the Red Sand Dunes of Mui Ne and wade through the stream at Fairy Spring. Explore the Van Thuy Tu Temple built in honour of Ca Ong (Lord Whale), and climb Ta Cu Mountain to stand alongside the 59 metre (193 ft) reclining Buddha.
