The culmination of a year of planning, our Asian voyages are true expeditions, bringing the same immersive style, small-batch cuisine, Australian hospitality and expedition team that our guests have come to love. Covering the coastlines of Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam and Indonesia, we linger in historical towns, pristine marine parks, and postcard perfect islands that can only be visited by small ship.
Included are excursions to remarkable places such as the colonial township of Mawlamyine in Myanmar (the setting for works by Rudyard Kipling and George Orwell), and the fascinating penal islands of Con Dao off the Vietnam coast (now a national marine park). We take full advantage of the shallow draught and navigation capabilities of the Coral Discoverer to sail up the Irrawaddy and Mekong Rivers to berth in the heart of Yangon and Ho Chi Minh City.
As with all Coral Expeditions cruises, all shore activities and excursions are included in your cruise price. Our Asian voyages incorporate local Asian flavours into our traditionally modern Australian cuisine.
Take expedition cruising to the next level and venture deep into the wilds of Indonesia on this new itinerary filled with adventure, discovery and exploration.
With the help of an experienced Captain and expert crew and guides, uncover the secrets of the many islands that make up Indonesia, by swimming over coral reefs, hiking up volcano calderas, walking through rainforests and dipping into jungle-fringed waterfalls.

Our Asian expeditions are designed for seasoned travellers who may have been to the region before, but wish now to peel back the layers and see it in a more intimate light. The ultra-shallow draught of our ships enables us to give our guests some amazing experiences that were previously accessible only by private yacht or arduous overland trips.
