Asia & South Pacific
Whatever you’re looking for in Asia and the South Pacific, you’ll find it on our adventures in this riveting region. In 2021, we’re adding new countries to the list of destinations you can explore with the launch of Vantage’s first small ship ocean going expedition vessel, the Ocean Explorer. Join its inaugural voyage, Essential Asia: Hong Kong to Singapore, and join Vantage CEO and Chairman Henry Lewis for an expedition through the distinctive cultures, nuanced cuisines, and stunning landscapes of six nations — China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore.
On its inaugural sailing season alone, the Ocean Explorer will bring Vantage travelers to Malaysia, Thailand, India, and Sri Lanka for a special overnight excursion featuring two elephant and bird safaris.
Speaking of wildlife, you’ll find more than 1,000 mammal species and over 2,000 species of birds in Asia, from China and India to the countries of Central and Southeast Asia. What’s more, the wildlife in Australia and New Zealand is both copious and unique, with more than 350 mammal species (including nearly 50 marine mammals), more than 4,000 fish species, over 800 bird species, nearly 450 species of lizard and snake species.
No matter which adventure you choose, you’ll certainly have an opportunity to spy some of the region’s wildlife — in fact, our Asia and South Pacific adventures include 14 excursions to bring you closer to nature and the wildlife of this region. Bring your camera and GoPro to ensure you don’t miss an unforgettable photo!
