FROM $999 PER PERSON | 3 DAYS | $333 PER DAY

Long known as a modern juggernaut of international commerce, it is also a nonstop bonanza of world-class shopping, sophisticated nightlife, and global cuisine.

As a bonus, your extension features a full-day excursion to Macau, which was the oldest European colony in Asia. Sound like a lot? It is! That’s why you’ll want to extend your time here with this affordable, convenient extension that lets you do justice to a fascinating region.

DAY 21:

Discover Macau

Macau may be known as “the Vegas of Asia” for its famous casinos, but it is also a fascinating cultural hybrid, given its Chinese heritage and 300-year old Portuguese colonial past. Today you will discover it on an included excursion, traveling by ferry and coach.

Macau was the first European colony in Asia, and has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Ride to the top of Penha Hill, and see the Chapel of Our Lady of Penha, which was a pilgrimage site for 17th-century Portuguese sailors. See the oldest temple in Macau, A-Ma, dating to 1488. Only the five-tiered facade of ruined St. Paul's Cathedral still stands, but it is still worth a look with its intricately carved Chinese lions and dragons, and Christian saints. You’ll also stop at the border gate and shopping area, and enjoy lunch at a local restaurant serving the unique Chinese-Macanese cuisine. Of course, this is Macau so you will have the opportunity to try your luck at a casino before you head back to Hong Kong, and enjoy dinner on your own.

Included meals:

Lunch

DAYS 1-2:

Fly to Hong Kong

Depart your gateway city and fly to Hong Kong. You’ll fly overnight and cross the International Dateline, arriving at your destination on Day 3.

DAY 3:

Welcome to Hong Kong

If you purchased your airfare from Vantage, upon arrival at the airport in Hong Kong a Vantage representative will meet you and arrange transfer to your centrally located hotel. You may arrive very early in the morning, but we have arranged for an early check in so you can get some rest. Enjoy the balance of the day free until this evening’s orientation tour, which sheds light on the nighttime markets, cafés, and other attractions in the vibrant Tsim Sha Tsui neighborhood around your hotel. Dinner will be served at your hotel, following a Welcome briefing.

Included meals:

Dinner

DAY 4:

The best of Hong Kong Island

After breakfast, get acquainted with some of Hong Kong’s most iconic attractions on a half-day city tour. You’ll start in Aberdeen, the original tiny village for which all of Hong Kong is now named. It was settled by the Tanka people, who speak their own dialect and have historically lived on fishing boats in floating villages. This is where locals came for the freshest seafood, and jostling next to the tiny traditional junks you’ll see famous, grand floating restaurants like the iconic Jumbo. A sampan ride through the harbor brings it all to you, up close.

Then, for a totally different perspective, you’ll ride to the top of Victoria Peak by tram, taking in the phenomenal views. Here, you’ll experience the dim sum tradition on an included lunch, where servers bring carts of small plate dishes to tempt you. Dim sum literally means “touch the heart,” and perhaps yours will be filled by some fluffy, pork-filled bao buns . . . mouthwatering siu mai dumplings . . . translucent shrimp cheung fan rolls . . . beef balls seasoned with coriander . . . and more.

Returning to your hotel later in the afternoon, you’ll have the balance of the day free. Dinner will be on your own, and after dark, you might consider a walk along the waterfront Avenue of the Stars. You’ll not only run into some famous (sculpted) Hong Kong movie stars, but catch the nightly Symphony of Lights, when the skyline is illuminated in what is the world's largest permanent light and sound show.

Included meals:

Breakfast  & lunch

DAY 5:

Discover Hong Kong’s markets, base journey travelers begin to arrive

This morning, embark on a half-day Hong Kong Market Tour, which will bring you to into the city's culture and commerce. You'll visit four markets total, including the city's renowned Jade Market and the Flower Market, and enjoy an included lunch to keep you sustained throughout your shopping.

Throughout the day, your fellow expedition travelers will be arriving. You’ll meet them this evening at a Welcome Briefing and Dinner. Tomorrow, as they acclimate with a city tour, you still have one more included feature of your pre-trip extension to enjoy: your full day excursion to Macau.

Included meals:

Breakfast, lunch & dinner

DAY 6:

Discover Macau

Macau may be known as “the Vegas of Asia” for its famous casinos, but it is also a fascinating cultural hybrid, given its Chinese heritage and 300-year old Portuguese colonial past. Today you will discover it on an included excursion, traveling by ferry and coach.

Tomorrow, you will rejoin your larger base tour group and proceed with Day 5 of your Hong Kong-Singapore cruise tour.

Included meals:

Breakfast  & lunch

DAY 7:

Lantau Island tour and Po Lin Monastery Visit, then embarking the Ocean Odyssey

This morning after breakfast you will check out of your hotel and embark on a half-day tour of Lantau Island, where Hong Kong comes to play.

Lantau is popular for its beaches, shopping outlets, and theme parks, but you will focus on its historic attractions and traditional culture. See the classic Po Lin Monastery, and just above it on a hilltop, the Tian Tan Buddha, an 85-foot high bronze statue. Then, where the mountains meet the sea you will explore Tai-O, a 300-year-old fishing village of stilt houses, traditional boats, and more. Before leaving, you’ll get a birds-eye view of it all when you ride the Ngong Ping 360 cable car to Tung Chung peak.

After lunch at a local restaurant, you’ll transfer to the pier and embark the relaxed, yet refined Ocean Odyssey.

Included Features:

  • Half-day tour of Lantau Island
  • Visit Po Lin Monastery

Siem Reap & Angkor Wat (Post-Trip)

FROM $1,499 PER PERSON | 5 DAYS | $300 PER DAY

Epic in scale, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Angkor Wat is considered the world’s largest religious site. But it is so much more than a temple complex, for here, the Khmer kings held court with retinues of dancers, diplomats, soldiers, statesmen and priests — and presumably, the apsara and devata deities who are depicted in the intricate bas-relief carvings that adorn nearly every surface of the 402-acre site. Along with your two guided visits to the site, this tour invites you to experience the daily life of Cambodia’s famously friendly people as you visit a silk farm, a dance school, and a local village. You will already be in southeast Asia … why not make the most of it and take advantage of this bucket-list experience?

Your Price Includes:

  • Air transportation from Singapore to Siem Reap
  • 4 nights accommodations at the Deluxe Sofitel Angkor Phokeethra Golf & Spa Resort (or similar)
  • 10 meals: 4 breakfasts, 3 lunches, 3 dinners
  • 2 full-day tours of the Angkor complex, including Angkor Thom and Ta Prohm
  • Visit to a silk farm and dancing school
  • Half-day Village Life walking tour
  • All transfers and baggage handling (where permitted)
