A Glimpse of Balinese Culture , 72 days72
Enjoy a balance of idyllic days luxuriating at your beachfront hotel and exploring cultural landmarks that include a Hindu temple, bustling markets and a monument that commemorate Bali’s independence. DAY 1 You are met at the Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali and transferred to the Ritz Carlton Bali or similar, where the day is at your leisure to enjoy the amenities of the resort or to head out and see some of the local sites on your own. Overlooking the Indian Ocean, your cliffside hotel in Nusa Dua offers modern luxury woven with Balinese tradition. Check in is at 3:00pm. Although every effort will be made to have rooms available before this time, this cannot be guaranteed. All meals on are your own today. DAY 2 Following breakfast at the hotel, the morning will be at your leisure, allowing you to explore freely and then enjoy lunch on your own. In the afternoon, you will drive to the southern part of Bali to visit the cultural park Garuda Wisnu Kencana, a Balinese landmark whose main attraction is a gigantic copper statue of Garuda Wisnu, the Vishnu lord. It is one of the world’s largest statues and looks absolutely stunning rising above the landscape. Your evening will dine in the park’s restaurant Jendela Bali. Jendela translates as window in Indonesian and this atmospheric restaurant, wrapped in a leafy open-air terrace reveals to-die-for views over Bali. On clear days you can see the island’s spectacular chain of volcanoes looming above the southern plains. Watching the sunset over the Indian Ocean, leaving a trail of crimson streaks in its wake, is a truly unforgettable experience. The enchantment continues as darkness descends and the island blazes with twinkling lights. Return to your hotel where the evening is at leisure. DAY 3 Enjoy breakfast at your hotel followed by a day at your leisure allowing you to explore freely or just relax and enjoy the amenities of your resort hotel. Lunch and dinner are on your own. DAY 4 Enjoy breakfast at your hotel before settling any incidentals and checking out. En-route to the ship you will drive to Denpasar City, the current capital of Bali Province. Historically, it was the capital of the Badung Empire, controlling the southern region of Bali Island from the end of 18th century until conquered by the Dutch in 1906. Your first stop will be at the Bajra Sandhi Monument, which commemorates the Balinese struggle against Dutch colonialism. Designed in the shape of a Hindu bell, the monument contains dozens of detailed dioramas that depict Bali’s long history, including the introduction of Hinduism and the country’s eventual independence. Next, visit the traditional Badung Market which is located in the heart of the city. It is open 7 days a week, 24 hours a day making it the busiest market in Bali. This market has become the main trade center for all convenience goods from groceries to spices, fish and meat, clothing, kitchen crafts and batik textiles. It offers a glimpse into the hustle and bustle of the lives of the locals. If you find something you like don’t be shy to negotiate! Next, visit the Bali Museum and then on the north side of the city, visit the glorious Temple of Jagatnatha, a Hindu Kahyangan Temple. Stop briefly at the Inna Bali Heritage Hotel for a refreshment break. This hotel was the first international class hotel in Bali and is steeped in history. World leaders such as Queen Elizabeth, Charlie Chaplin, Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Ir Soekarno Untuk Megawati and other prominent figures have all stayed here in room 77. Following your brief refreshment stop, you will transfer to the port where you will embark the ship.

Once a simple fishing village grown into an upscale destination, Benoa’s charms are most evident in Nusa Dua, one of the most beautiful beaches in already-legendary Bali. In this land of rice terraces, spectacular volcanoes and over 20,000 temples , the main destination is the 17th-century royal temple complex of Pura Taman Ayun in nearby Mengwi, surrounded by a lotus- filled moat, giving it the feel of a garden sanctuary. Highlights include elaborate wood carvings of Balinese deities and tranquil pavilions. Another favorite is the Sunset Temple, Tanah Lot, dramatically perched on a rocky outcrop, making for an ideal photo opportunity. And don’t miss the batik factories for that perfect gift or souvenir.

Straegically located at the end of the Malaysian peninsula, the island nation of Singapore is a modern, thriving metropolis and a true melting pot of cultures. Singapore offers diverse colorful ethnic quarters; a fantastic array of superb cuisines; and a shopping mecca second to none.

Coming ashore to a tiny fishing village in 1819, through trade treaties and business acumen, he laid the foundation for one of the most amazing urban success stories in history. Today, travelers can embrace exotic sights and sounds as they stroll or ride a trishaw through Chinatown, the Arab Quarter or Little India. Head down to the scenic Boat Quay for unrivaled views of the harbor and stop at one of the many international eateries for a refreshing repast. Shop along famous Orchard Road with its merchandise from every corner of the Pacific Rim; embark on a night safari at the Singapore Zoo or relax in the verdant shade of the Bukit Timah Nature Preserve. Be sure to leave time to try a refreshing Singapore Sling at the bar at Raffles Hotel.

Ho Chi Minh is Vietnam's largest and most famous city. During the 14th century this city was known as Prey Nokor and was nothing more than a trading post.

After the Vietnam War, the new communist regime changed the official name of the city of Saigon to Ho Chi Minh and began to rebuild its economic and social structure.
