13 Night Cruise sailing from Ho Chi Minh to Hong Kong aboard Silver Discoverer.
A journey rich with new destinations, start your adventure with an overnight in the happy cacophony of scooters and street-sellers in former Saigon. Then, be prepared for a palette of sights and experiences – the incredible floating flower market of Cai Be, the labyrinthine caves and grottoes of Phong Nha-Ke Bang and the remote Chinese villages of Zhuang. Asia has never been so beautiful.
Highlights of this cruise:
Ho Chi Minh
Romantically referred to by the French as the Pearl of the Orient, Ho Chi Minh City today is a super-charged city of sensory overload. Motorbikes zoom day and night along the wide boulevards, through the narrow back alleys and past vendors pushing handcarts hawking goods of all descriptions. Still called Saigon by most residents, this is Vietnam's largest city and the engine driving the country's current economic resurgence, but despite its frenetic pace, it's a friendlier place than Hanoi and locals will tell you the food—simple, tasty, and incorporating many fresh herbs—is infinitely better than in the capital.This is a city full of surprises.
Cai Be is a river-land mixed town in Vietnam. It is a rural district of Tiền Giang Province in the Mekong Delta region of Vietnam. Along the river, there are docks that handle passengers and goods plus the local floating market. Farmers from the region bring their goods, fruits and vegetables mainly, to the markets and sell them to local dealers. These dealers sell the products to shops in the neighbouring towns and to wholesale dealers from the big towns. In the picture you can see a local farmer with fruits for sale. All big boats have a pole. Each wholesaler hangs the goods he buys/sells on this pole. This way, people on small boats know where they have to go from a certain distance.
Da Nang is the third largest city in Vietnam with the land area of 1283 square kilometre and the population of approximately 1million people. Da Nang is growing into one of the most organized urban area, with attractive beach front villas on the one side and Han River flowing on the other. Of the few attractions that belong to the city, Museum of Cham stands out with its rich collection of Cham artefacts. For those who crave for more outdoors activities, My Khe beach is a good place to spend time, either by yourself or with your loved ones. Da Nang is in close proximity to Hue- 3 hours North and Hoi An- 30 minutes south, which makes it a perfect stop point for those who need a break from touristy areas.
Located immediately north of Hong Kong, Shenzhen is a large, dynamic and highly urbanized metropolis and the gateway to the inland region of Guilin, which is accessed by train. In contrast to this urban starting point, the train from Shenzhen to Guilin reveals magnificent scenery of steep karst hills and beautifully stepped agricultural areas that follow the natural curves of the hilly terrain. Guilin means “Forest of Sweet Osmanthus” for its large number of fragrant trees, and is one of China’s most popular tourist destinations because of its lovely natural landscapes. Although less urbanized than Shenzhen, Guilin is still a populous area, with over 4.7 million residents in the region.
The Hong Kong Island skyline, with its ever-growing number of skyscrapers, speaks to ambition and money. Paris, London, even New York were centuries in the making, while Hong Kong's towers, bright lights, and glitzy shopping emporia weren't yet part of the urban scene when many of the young investment bankers who fuel one of the world's leading financial centers were born. Commerce is concentrated in the glittering high-rises of Central, tucked between Victoria Harbor and forested peaks on Hong Kong Island's north shore.
