It is almost intimidatingly clean - and the hyper-efficient public transport system whips residents and visitors across the city's neighborhoods in a heartbeat. The lush green botanical gardens are a spectacular and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Jaunt between Little India and the atmospheric Chinatown in minutes, where beautiful temples - like the Chinese Thian Hock Keng Temple and Hindu Sri Mariamman Temple add rich cultural intrigue.

Enjoy dishes in towering restaurants, or toast the glowing skyline with the eponymous cocktail - a Singapore Sling.

May 6 - Port Klang (Kuala Lumpur), Malaysia

9 AM to 10 PM

Towered over by the world's most famous architectural siblings - the Petronas Twin Towers - Kuala Lumpur is a staggering melting pot of influences. The glittering skyline mingles with colonial architecture and ornate temples, which decorate lush hillsides around the city. Haggle your way through humming markets, visit cultural treasures and historic sites, and dive headfirst into this city, where tradition collides head-on with modernity. One of Malaysia’s most visited attractions is Batu Caves, an awe-inspiring, colorful journey into a sacred void in these immense limestone cliffs. Huge statues tower over the brightly-hued steps, as you climb to the unique cave temple, in this most dramatic of locations. The golden onion dome of the National Palace, Istana Negara, is a spectacular sight, where horses clop and white-robed soldiers wait patiently. Bridge: Afternoon Lesson & Pairs Game

May 10 - Galle, Sri Lanka

8 AM to 6 PM

Galle is an ancient port where different political influences from Europe have merged. In fact, the Galle Fort was occupied by the Portuguese, Dutch and British until the late 19th century. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988, it is surrounded by the sea on three sides. The surviving Dutch-colonial architecture and narrow streets exude the historic atmosphere of this living fort that has a distinctly moorish touch.. The 18th century Dutch church has a splendid wooden memorial to one of the commanders of Galle.

May 11 - Colombo, Sri Lanka

8 AM to 11 PM

Perfumed flower garlands, colonial roots, and lavish afternoon teas welcome you to Colombo. Sri Lanka’s easy breezy city is certainly intoxicating, with its cinnamon dusted air, steaming cups of delicate ceylon, and sassy seaside charm. A place of full sensory immersion, explore tangled streets to frantic tuk-tuks and gaze in awe at grand colonial buildings turned heritage hotels. Visit the Gangaramaya Temple, to walk among the orange-robed monks who glide between flora-strewn alters, or plunge into the chaos of Pettah markets. An incredible gathering of carved Hindu gods decorate the colorful pyramid of the Captain’s Garden Kovil temple - the oldest Hindu temple in the city. Forever the dish of the day, crab is a must in Colombo. Sit down, tuck in your bib and use your hands to crack and scoop out the soft white meat, especially delicious when smothered in garlic and fiery chili.

May 13 - Cochin, India 

8 AM to 6 PM

A hodgepodge of cultures collide on the banks of the estuary where Cochin carves out her home. Chinese fishing nets the size of skyscrapers, boxy Dutch architecture and pretty Portuguese palaces point to the blend of influence here, while the Raj era remnants, soaring spires of old-world mosques, and near-abandoned synagogues all add to the dense, varied tapestry of inspirations and imprints. Fragrant spice markets cut the hot air with cardamom and clove, while antique stores groan beneath the weight of singing copper. Hit the backstreets of Fort Kochi for a deep and dreamy Ayurvedic massage, marvel at the Krishna murals that adorn the bedchamber walls of the Mattancherry Palace, or admire India’s oldest European-built Christian churches. A day can easily meander past on a backwater cruise, surrounded by paddies; you’ll experience rural India in her best dress.

May 15 - Mumbai, India

8 AM to 11 PM

A spicy destination of color and chaos, the city formally known as Bombay is a deafening collision of contrasts and culture. Known as the City of Dreams, Mumbai is at once an economic centre, fashion hub and home for Bollywood’s world of glamour. This is the real India. Brutal poverty is rife in sprawling slums, while unimaginable wealth glares in the exuberances of the world’s most expensive private residence. A place of dazzling, overwhelming cultural experiences, littered with UNESCO World Heritage sites. See remnants of the colonial past in the architecture and art deco buildings of the Colaba district – like the incredible High Victorian Gothic styled Chatrapati Shivaji railway terminus building. Visit another World Heritage Site at the remarkable carved 7th-century Elephant caves, which are a short ferry ride from Mumbai Harbour. Dharavi is a unique experience and Asia’s largest slum is one of the most densely populated places in the world and a popular tour. It received global attention as the setting for the film Slumdog Millionaire. Elsewhere in Mumbai, visit the house where Gandhi lived - now transformed into a museum honoring his life and work.

Oman’s capital rests overlooking the coast of the Gulf of Oman, tucked away among the country’s mountains. Discover a city surrounded by neat gardens - with streets lined by palm trees and crumbling Portuguese forts providing a tangible link to the past. Explore an elegant array of domes, minarets and marbled Arabic archways, as you’re immersed in a city where a traditional conservative outlook mingles with a pragmatic modern approach. Despite a relative boom in recent years, Muscat has clung to its old-world Arabian charm.

May 19 - Muscat, Oman (overnight)  

Depart  7 PM

Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque is the main mosque and an iconic landmark of Muscat. No fewer than 20,000 people cram inside below its towering minaret, which soars upwards for a stunning 90 meters. In the evening, lights shine on the exterior, and the dome glows like a mirage floating above the city’s rooftops. The Mutrah area is rich with local culture. Wander among the groaning tables of the lively fish market and busy Mutrah souk. Mutrah Fort was constructed during the Portuguese occupation of the 16th century and offers views back down over the harbour. Things can get a little sticky in this humid climate, so head to the beach to enjoy a gentle breeze and unwind. Nearby, you’ll find plenty of indulgent stretches of soft sand, met by pristine water. Swim with fish and turtles or relax below the palm trees. Or take a cruise to spot spinner dolphins playing in the waters offshore.
