Silversea cruises in Asia: The perfect balance of old and new



Ultra-luxury cruise line, Silversea Cruises, invites guests to explore Asia's mesmerising blend of ancient and contemporary wonders aboard Silver Shadow's unique itineraries.  Sailing from Japan, Hong Kong or Singapore, between October and December 2015, over nine to 16 days, guests will experience stone-carved temples and towering skyscrapers, whilst uncovering Asia's diverse history, landscapes, culture, cuisine and coastlines.


Karen Christensen, General Manager & Director of Sales/Marketing, Australasia, says even for the most discerning traveller, Asia never fails to fascinate.


"Asia's breathtaking fusion of old and new, in addition to its rich culture, continues to entice curious travellers from every corner of the globe.  Guests can expect to see almost futuristic skylines, gilded shrines and bullet trains that speed past rice paddies and tea plantations.  Asia is a truly surreal and a wonderful combination of modernity and tradition."


"From early October to late December is the perfect time to cruise through Asia.  Guests can choose from Silversea's selection of itineraries, which span journeys through beautiful destinations such as Yangon, Penang and Chan May, plus bustling cities including Ho Chi Minh City, Hong Kong and Bangkok."
