On board MS EUROPA 2 from Singapore to Mumbai (Bombay)
Indian Ocean: between skyscrapers and pagodas
The gods of the past and the spirit of the future will be revealed in the fascinating kaleidoscope of Asia - from dynamic Kuala Lumpur to the religious diversity of Rangoon and exotic India. See the contrasts between traditional and modern architecture in Kuala Lumpur before enjoying some relaxing hours on the palm-fringed beaches of Langkawi. The Shwedagon Pagoda** in Rangoon, the temples in Bagan** and the Taj Mahal** are like silent echoes from a distant era. The cosmopolitan port city of Colombo and a local spice market in Cochin will bring you back to the present, before the freedom that takes you places with the EUROPA 2 ends in Mumbai.
Highlights of this cruise
- Myanmar: in the land of the golden pagodas.
- A spectacular building: the legendary Taj Mahal**.

Cochin is one of the oldest settlements to be established by Europeans and is regarded as one of the most important historic ports in the world, the centre of the worldwide trade in spices. The fishing nets at Fort Kochi are worth a visit: lined up along the shore, their lifting beams still sway above the water and the nets continue to bring in catches of fish. The township of Mattancherri is also a worthwhile destination with sights including the Dutch Palace and the Pardesi Synagogue. From Cochin, overland excursions will take you to the famous Taj Mahal mausoleum and to Delhi. Delhi consists of two parts: Old Delhi with all the atmosphere of the Orient, and New Delhi, planned and constructed by the British and the capital of the country. Of special interest in Old Delhi are the Jama Masjid Mosque and the Red Fort.
