Asia is a stunning continent with huge areas of coastline, so there is no better way to explore Asia than by boat! Here are our top six cruises, personally selected by Asia specialist Nathan, to inspire your very own boat trip around some of Asia’s most iconic and beautiful sites.
Angkor Wat Holidays
Nestled in the North West corner of Cambodia are the UNESCO listed Angkor temples, an inconceivably well preserved lost world of ancient temples, towers and courtyards. Standing proudly high above the paddy fields, Angkor Wat is its shining star.
Built 800 years ago, 30 years in the making and surrounded completely by its very own moat, Angkor Wat is an astounding monument to a bygone civilisation. Designed in the form of Mount Meru the spiritual centre of the Universe according to Hindu and Buddhist teachings, its symmetry and complexity make this world wonder an enthralling playground for explorers. Don’t miss the Gallery of 1,000 Buddhas (Preah Pean) or the intricate depiction of ancient fables enveloping the outer walls.
With Angkor Thom’s enormous stone faces etched into its towers and Ta Prohm smothered by giant tree roots snaking around its features; we recommend more than one day to explore this abandoned metropolis.
