From Tokyo to Beijing in 18 unforgettable nights, guests aboard Seven Seas Voyager® will relish the opportunity to explore the magnificent cities of Japan, Taiwan and China with nearly 70 FREE Unlimited Shore Excursions.
Departing Tokyo, guests will call on Shimizu where, on a clear day, they can see majestic Mount Fuji from the port. However, for true adventurers, there are plenty of opportunities to get closer to the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Later in Osaka, where guests enjoy an overnight call, you may explore the third largest city of Japan and the famed Osaka Castle, as well as journey to Kyoto where the impressive Golden Pavilion and Nijo Castle awaits. The time in Japan culminates with a call on Okinawa, where its scenic countryside is the backdrop for poignant WWII memorials.
Upon arriving in Taiwan, the blend of mountainous terrain with a beautiful coastline belongs to Keelung. Among its breathtaking landscape is a place named Heping Island, with rock formations that arouse intrigue and curiosity. Guests who enjoy Asian fare will rejoice at the food market surrounding the Denji Temple, which has a myriad of delicacies to sample from. Not to be outdone by Keelung, the next day Taiwan presents Kaohsiung, the second most populous city known as the Harbor Capital. Here, guests enjoy visits to the Fo Guang Shan monastery, with its hall of giant Buddhas, and the beautiful landscapes of Kenting National Park.
After cruising the Strait of Taiwan, guests arrive in China for four overnight calls in Hong Kong, Xiamen, Shanghai and Beijing. Taking advantage of these evenings in Asia, guests may choose to take in the spectacular views from the top of Victoria Peak in Hong Kong and later compare them to the view from the 88th floor of the Jinmao Building, which is the best place to witness Shanghai’s skyline lit up on both sides of the river.
