The Big Four – adventure: cruises in Asia

The Big Four – adventure: cruises in Asia

From the bustling streets of Bangkok to the Great Wall of China, Asia is a continent that holds huge amounts of intrigue for the modern traveller. The diverse region is not as impenetrable as it once was either – with most western operators having seized the initiative long ago. We have split our suggestions below between river and ocean. This could be the start of a fascination with the Far East for you client if you get it right.

Following on from the publication of Cruise Adviser’s Expedition & Adventure guide 2015-16, each week we will be running our Big Four feature, which gives you a trio of cruise options to choose from. This week it’s ocean and river cruises to Asia.

Cruise Adviser top tip

If your customer has been to Asia before, be prepared to offer something different. It isn’t a continent that can be ‘done’ with one trip!
