Hong Kong to Benoa
Abundant in outdoor excursions to small ports and uncrowded destinations, this two-week cruise features stops in China, the Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia. And what better way to experience this lovely region than with the people who know it best – the Windstar crew who hail from the Philippines and Indonesia. Snorkel among colorful fish and vibrant coral off Busuanga Island near Coron. Drift silently among shadowy limestone deposits and sleeping bats in the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park in the Philippines. Observe recuperating orangutans at the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Center near Sandakan. Uncover the remnants and relics cast off from centuries of Dutch colonialism around Ujung Padang, and discover Fort Rotterdam’s influences on trade and contemporary culture. Watch Komodo dragons lumber along sandy beaches in search of prey or venture inland for glimpses of koalas among the dense foliage of the Komodo National Park near Loh Liang. Relax on small reclusive beaches on Lombok or sample spicy nasi goreng, fried rice paired with egg, prawns or chicken and served with crunchy, cracker-like kerupuk at a local Lembar restaurant.

Manila is considered one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world with a delightful blend of cultures and flavors.

Another day in tropical paradise. The beaches of Boracay are the feature on this small island only 4 miles long and 1/2 mile wide. Sunbathe on the powdery white sand of White Beach, consistently rated as one of the top beaches in the world, or spend some time snorkeling the pristine waters.

Day 6: Coron/Busuanga Island
Coron is famous for divers and snorkelers due to the numerous well-preserved Japanese shipwrecks from WWII that are found there.
