Singapore is a tiny city-state resting at the very tip of Malaysia’s peninsula. It’s approximately 700 km south of the classical, historic, and exotic and tropical island of Penang. This trip takes in many major sites along that route at a pace that’s sure to please and inspire. Our first stopover is in Malacca, one of Malaysia’s coastal states, where you’ll see relics of early Chinese settlements dating back to the 15th century.
Malacca was a busy port during this period and its importance was on par with Singapore; a regional power at the time. Our tour’s next stop is in Kuala Lumpur, the modern and very cosmopolitan capital of Malaysia, which boasts the tallest twin towers in the world. From here we travel north to the Batu Caves and Lake Gardens, then to the Cameron Highlands, famed for its terraced tea plantations and where the climate is cool and breezy.
We then drive northward to the island of Penang, disembarking mainland Malaysia by crossing the longest bridge in Southeast Asia. Georgetown is the capital of Penang, and is defined by a robust history and culture and its colonial-style buildings. A little north of Penang we stay at tropical beach resorts off azure waters that will ensure a positively relaxing stay.
It begins with two overnights in Prague, one of Europe’s most magical cities. You’ll see Prague’s best-known treasures like St. Vitus Cathedral, a gothic masterpiece that dominates the skyline. Your river cruise will get underway as you sail through the Main Danube Canal with stops in some of Germany’s most intriguing cities. Also sail through the dramatic Rhine Gorge, considered the most beautiful stretch of the Rhine River. See ancient castles standing majestically on cliffs 400 feet above the water.
In the heart of the Moselle region, the wine village of Bernkastel, surrounded by Germany’s largest expanse of vineyards, will fascinate you with its narrow streets and half-timbered houses which have been standing since the Middle Ages. Before you leave, we’ll introduce you to some of the famed wines of the area. Along the enchanting Moselle River, make your way to the ancient city of Trier, Germany—believed to be even older than Rome. Many remnants of ancient Rome can still be found, such as imperial baths and the Roman Bridge, with stone pilings dating from 144-152 AD.
Your European river cruise through Central Europe comes to a close in the Luxembourg city of Remich. You’ll take many beautiful memories with you to recall this fantastic trip on the Main, Rhine, and Moselle Rivers.
