Ports

  • Bangkok

    Thailand’s capital has a split personality. Traditional golden temples and dazzling palaces reside side-by-side with high-rise towers. Modern shopping malls and restaurants compete with open-air markets and street-food stalls. On main roads and sidewalks everyone is in a hurry; for a different vibe, turn off on one of the tiny lanes called sois. The brightly colored Grand Palace, a fantasy in golden spires, encompasses many buildings, including the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, spiritual core of Thai Buddhism. The image itself is just over two feet tall and is actually carved from jade. Two other significant temples are Wat Po, site of a massive reclining Buddha, and Wat Arun, the Temple of Dawn. The Chao Phraya River is the city’s heart, best investigated by long tail boat along with the adjoining canals where Thais live in stilted wooden homes. Bangkok’s markets are a highlight – some float, with vendors hawking fruits, vegetables and noodles ready to eat from small boats. At the massive covered Weekend Market, thousands of vendors peddle virtually everything – from antiques and handy crafts, flowers and fabrics, to spices and even pets. Also everything eatable you can possibly imagine, including tempting snacks to keep up your energy.

  • Hua Hin

    King Rama VII was the first to recognize Hua Hin’s possibilities as a holiday resort; His Far From Worries Palace remains a royal residence today. Another royal summer palace built in 1924 by Rama VI consists of a series of 18 interlinked teak buildings transported from various locations. A convenient weekend location easily accessible from Bangkok, the town developed gradually as a resort for the Thai aristocracy, as a fishing port and as the site of Asia’s first 18-hole golf course. Today it offers several world-class courses, including one by Jack Nicklaus with 27 holes. Development has been moderate; the central town is almost entirely free of high-rises. Kite boarding is one of the newest of the many water sports available. Outside the city you will find parks and peaks, caves and waterfalls. Experience the beauty of Keang Krachan National Park while rafting on the Phetchaburi River and scout for local wildlife in the tropical forest. Visit the Wildlife Friends Rescue Center, where they care for over 500 animals, including bears, tigers, gibbons, and elephants. For an artistic experience, visit the collective established by local painter Tawee Kasangam in a shady grove just outside of town.

  • Ko Samui

    Ko Samui’s white sand beaches and numerous offshore islands provide all the water-related activities one could wish for. Ang Thong National Marine Park is a protected area of more than four square miles of land and sea, including 42 islands, only one of which is inhabited. Four types of forest can be found among the islands, where steep limestone cliffs rise in amazing shapes. Land and sea are home to a rich variety of exotic wildlife, sea creatures, and birds. Ashore are langurs, otters, iguanas, pythons, and many seabirds. Turtle Island is a top SCUBA destination; hilly and ringed by sandy beach, its crystal clear waters contain vibrant coral reefs also perfect for snorkeling and sea kayaking. Not feel like getting wet? Fishing and mountain biking are popular activities, and hikers can cool off in the natural pools of picturesque waterfalls on the main island. For a cultural experience, investigate the golden Big Buddha Temple situated on a small rock island reached by a causeway. Take home one of the lucky amulets for sale for an unusual souvenir.

  • At Sea

  • Singapore

    This tiny island city-state just off the southern tip of Malaysia became a sovereign nation only in 1965 and managed the transition from a developing to a highly developed country in a single generation, while managing to keep the city clean, green and safe. For a bird’s eye view of the scope of this achievement, take a 30-minute spin on the Singapore Flyer, a massive observation wheel, or visit the futuristic Marina Bay Sky Park, for an unusual blend of high tech and Mother Nature with a 360-degree panorama. The population is comfortably multi-cultural, and visitors can explore elaborately decorated Taoist-Buddhist and Hindu temples, mosques and churches, in some cases side-by-side. Chinatown and Little India offer shopping opportunities and the chance to try out authentic ethnic foods. To complete your explorations, stop in at Baba House, a museum of the hybrid Peranakan culture, made up of the offspring of Chinese and Indian men and local Malay and Indonesian women. Orchard Road is Singapore’s modern shopping hub, a seemingly unending array of department stores and malls. For a combination of chic shops and colonial history, try the arcade at Raffles, the iconic hotel dating from 1887, and then relax with a Singapore Sling, supposedly invented here in 1915.

  • Ujung Kulon National Park & Krakatoa

    Ujung Kulon National Park is located at the tip of the island of Java, along with its offshore volcanic islands is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, an untouched wilderness with healthy coral reefs. It is home to the endangered Java one-horned rhino, as well as wild pigs and cattle, sambar deer, giant monitor lizards and several species of monkeys. Birders can look forward to 270 species, and divers and snorkelers to green turtles and many varieties of fish. The pristine rainforest with its abundance of flora and fauna can be explored by canoe. Far off the tourist track and difficult to get to by land, it has few visitors. The Indonesian archipelago sits astride the Ring of Fire, an arc of seismic activity around the edges of the Pacific Ocean. The most famous of its volcanoes is Krakatoa, whose 1883 eruption was heard across the Indian Ocean and sent ash raining down on ships as far away as 3,700 miles. Today Krakatoa is quiet, but an active vent has given birth to a small island. Its name is Anak Krakatoa – Anak meaning son.

  • Exploration Day

  • Semarang

    Semarang’s old quarter dates from the time of Dutch colonization and is filled with handsome old buildings. Today, the city’s most striking aspect is its evolution into a modern city with a giant shopping mall, multiplex cinema and new hotels catering to business people, making it an authentic experience for those wishing to understand contemporary Indonesia. It also serves as a gateway to the cultural riches of central Java. The city of Yogyakarta is known as the soul of Java, home of traditional Javanese culture and arts and crafts: shadow puppets, masks and batik art, as well as silverwork, both practical and decorative. The still inhabited sultan’s palace and a lively main market are also a draw. Not far off are two spectacular archaeological sites. Borbudur is the world’s largest Buddhist monument, dating from the 8th and 9th centuries. The heavy blocks were assembled without the use of cement or mortar, and are covered with intricate carvings in bas-relief telling the story of the life of the Buddha. Dating from the same time period and similarly engraved, Prambanan is a temple honoring Hindu gods. It sports spires reaching skyward and is surrounded by a lush green park.

  • Celukan Bawang, Bali

    The port of Celukan Bawang is home to wooden, high-prowed, colorful Bugis schooners, the traditional vessels of the Indonesian archipelago that have plied these waters for centuries. It is also the gateway to Lovinia, with its calm, crystal waters and quiet black sand beaches. There are coral reefs for snorkeling, and this is an ideal spot for first timers to get an introduction to diving. The drive winds past little villages and temples, roadside rice paddies and the ever-present warungs, small family restaurants and fruit stalls. In Singaraja (Indonesian for lion king), traces of Dutch colonialism are evident, especially in the Gedond Kirtya Library and Museum Beleleng, composed of three small houses with a collection of old Balinese lontar books, made from palm leaves. In the cool, peaceful upland of Lake Beratan is the 17th century Ulun Danu Temple complex, set against a mountain backdrop and partially surrounded by the reflective surface of the lake. It is dedicated to the worship of the Hindu trinity, Brahma-Vishnu-Shiva, as well as the lake goddess Dewi Danu.

  • Bali (Benoa)

    Immerse yourself in the rich and colorful culture of this bewitching island. Enjoy the scent of blossoms on the soft morning breeze, and notice the exquisite daily offerings of flowers and tropical fruits everywhere. Listen for the strains of the gamelan in the background, and keep your eyes open for the endless processions en route to myriad temple ceremonies. Unlike most Indonesians, the people here are predominantly Hindu. Volcanoes cluster in the center of the island. The tallest is Mount Agung, Bali’s spiritual center and the location of its most important temple, Besakih. But the most dramatic temple is Ula Watu, perched atop sheer cliffs dropping straight down into the surf. The views are spectacular, especially at sunset. Bali is one of the world’s most artistic cultures, with individual villages famous for specific crafts and dance performances, with Ubud as the cultural core. Bali is also a place for relaxation and contemplation. There are scenic views for yoga and meditation and day spas providing Balinese massage. And every evening at dusk up to 20,000 large herons fly into the trees in the village of Petulu, to find their perches and settle in for the night.
