Asia Cruisetours

If you really want to explore the Far East, there’s no better vacation option than an Asia cruisetour. The countries of Asia are so vast and varied that it’s nearly impossible to really understand the region without fully immersing yourself in the culture and landscape. The most comprehensive and affordable way to do this is by bundling a pre- or post-cruise land tour with your Asia cruise vacation. The resulting package, called a cruisetour, will provide additional time for seeing more of Asia’s gems, including the Great Wall of China, Xian’s Terracotta Army, Beijing’s Summer Palace and more. There’s never been a better time to uncover the treasures of Asia with a cruisetour through the Far East.

 

 

Things to Do on a Cruisetour to Asia

 

Adding extra land days to your Asia cruise means more time to explore the Terracotta Army in Xian or walk the Great Wall of China. It could also mean additional time to marvel at the Summer Palace or Forbidden City of Beijing, China. No matter what you want to see and do in the Far East, an Asia cruisetour gives you more opportunities to see and do it. Listed below are a few of the best ways to spend your time when enjoying an Asia cruisetour vacation:

 

Red entrance gate opening to the forbidden city in Beijing, China
  • Spend a full day touring the best sites in Beijing, China. You can see the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and the Temple of Heaven – a towering cylindrical temple and UNESCO World Heritage Site. After touring and working up an appetite, do as the locals do and find a place to enjoy the city’s most famous dish, Peking duck.
     
  • If your cruisetour takes you to Japan, be sure to visit Kyoto’s Nijo Castle complex. You can tour its two palaces and surrounding gardens before visiting more of the area’s stunning sites, including the Golden Pavilion (Kinkaku-ji Temple), the stunning scarlet Heian Shrine and the ancient Kiyomizu Buddhist Temple.

  • Tour Beijing’s elaborate Summer Palace, which includes several gardens and palaces along the shores of Kunming Lake. Stretch your legs while wandering through the largest imperial garden in the world, and then relax on a serene boat ride upon Kunming Lake.
     
  • Explore the Great Wall of China, located just north of Beijing. The Great Wall extends nearly 4,000 miles across China’s rugged terrain, and you’ll have an opportunity to walk upon its ancient pathways while learning the history behind its many branches and sections.
     
Army of terracotta warriors,one of the most famous historical sights in China
  • Marvel at one of the most fascinating armies in the world, Xian’s Terracotta Warriors. The vault of over 8,000 life-sized terracotta figures includes armored foot soldiers, horses and chariots. The Terracotta Army was constructed more than 2,000 years ago to protect Emperor Qin Shi Huang in the afterlife.
     
  • Enjoy a river cruising excursion along the Yangtze River with a stop at the Shibaozhai Temple, a series of red pavilions built amongst the rocky cliffs bordering the river. You’ll also have a chance to travel through the Three Gorges locks and tour the Three Gorges Dam.
