Asia, the world’s largest continent, is home to a hugely diverse range of societies and cultures. It encompasses some of the planet’s most remarkable and inconsistent landscapes. For centuries, silk traders, travellers and merchants plied their way across the countryside, leaving their mark on the continent and helping to create the hugely variable region it is today. With such a superabundance of diversity, Asia truly has something for everybody. Adventure cruising in Asia takes you to some of those magical landscapes that have lured the traveller for so long. To name but a few; the tropical oases of the Maldives and Sri Lanka, the steamy South China Sea, the volcanoes of north eastern Russia, the unknown and much less travelled river journeys such as on the Mekong in Vietnam or China’s magnificent Yangtze.
