Expert Tip: Holly Kong - Director of Sales Hong Kong - Regent Seven Seas Cruises
“Hong Kong is full of amazing attractions, but Stanley markets remains top of the must-do’s while visiting the city. The market is treasured for its embroidered tablecloths, linens, and silk garments. Each stall and shop offers something slightly different and unique, so keeping an open mind while soaking up the atmosphere is key to making the most of the experience. You must not leave the market without trying a milk tea and Hong Kong-style French toast from the local diner - Si Yik.”
Jewels of Hong Kong (China)
Travellers gain a deeper understanding of Hong Kong’s culture and traditions by visiting key attractions such as Stanley Market, riding a tram to Victoria Peak and cruising through a fishing village by sampan.
Expert Tip: Chisato Morita - General Manager Japan - Regent Seven Seas Cruises
“It is a well-known fact that Tokyo is home to the most renowned sushi restaurants in the world. To really appreciate and enjoy the contrast of the two different types of sushi I recommend a visit to both Jiro and Kyubey. Jiro, visited by many famous faces such as Barack Obama, appreciates the skill of sushi craftsmanship, while Kyubey focuses on the freshness and flavour of fish.”
“For sake, Hasegawa Liquor Store, located in the city’s central train station is ideal if you want to indulge, or purchase a bottle for loved ones. For true sake enthusiasts, head to one of the few sake factories located in rural Tokyo, just an hour’s ride by car from the city centre.”
Sacred & Scenic Tokyo (Japan) On this brand-new land programme, guests will visit the most significant Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines in Tokyo on this celebration of Japan’s spiritual heritage, with plenty of free time to explore other landmarks.
Vibrant Tokyo (Japan) Guests can dive into dazzling Tokyo on a 3-night stay that strikes a perfect balance of traditional Japanese culture with the capital city’s modern and natural wonders. From passing through Kaminarimon at the 7th-century Sensoji Temple to taking in incredible views at Odaiba’s spherical observation deck, here are the best of Tokyo’s charms.
Glimpse of Balinese Culture (Indonesia)
In Bali, a sense of tranquillity seems to linger in tropical breezes throughout this ‘Island of the Gods’. A 3-night stay balances idyllic days luxuriating at a beachfront hotel and exploring cultural landmarks, plus Bali’s busiest market.
Expert Tip: Constance Seck – Director of Sales Southeast Asia & India - Regent Seven Seas Cruises
“While in Singapore you must make a visit to one of the city-state’s famed hawker markets. The cosmopolitan buzz of the country’s beloved hawker culture is a unique experience, and with more than 110 eclectic food halls to choose from, you are spoilt for choice. Lau Pa Sat Hawker Centre, in the heart of the financial district, has long dominated Singapore’s striking skyline and is perfect for enjoying an ice-cold beer and a plate of Hainanese chicken rice.
“Be sure to also stop at the Botanic Garden, which features the most spectacular of tropical flora and a swan lake, and is renowned for its Victorian garden design. Meanwhile, for the best Singaporean Chilli Crab try Jumbo Seafood Restaurant, or sample the culinary excellence of Chef Eric Teo, currently the Executive Chef of Mandarin Oriental Hotel.”

Australia & New Zealand
Expert Tip: Wendy Collins, Business Development Manager New Zealand, Regent Seven Seas Cruises
“New Zealand is a foodie’s paradise, and you will feel spoilt for choice as soon as you land ashore. Upon arrival in Muriwai Beach, I recommend taking a short drive to the Hallertau Tavern to eat. Known for their onsite brewed beers, locally produced wines, and delicious meals, the dishes are prepared using fresh ingredients picked on-site, offering a paddock to plate style experience. Immerse yourself in this rustic venue, situated in the specular region of Waitemata Harbour.”
New Zealand's Natural Wonders (New Zealand)

Expert Tip: Christine Manjencic, Vice President, Destination Services Operations, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings
“Lo Boca and Recoleta neighbourhoods are the home of many hidden haunts and treasures. The number one thing I recommend that travellers keep a close eye out for are the street artists surrounding Caminito. These creative individuals can be found in narrow alleys flanked by brightly painted zinc shacks that evoke the district’s early immigrant days.
“In Recoleta, a relaxed neighbourhood stroll is the perfect way to spend an afternoon. The affluent area is known for its Parisian-style townhouses, lavish former palaces, and high-end boutiques. Make a trip to Recoleta Cemetery, where national icons like Argentina’s most famous first Lady, Eva Perónrest, lay in extravagant tombs. Shopping options are endless here, but you must not leave the city without a trip to Avenue Florida to check out international and local high-end brands and boutiques, just 10 minutes from the port.”
Authentic Buenos Aires (Argentina)
Buenos Aires is a city with a thriving café culture, neoclassical architecture and a robust cultural scene. A 3-night embrace of ‘the Paris of South America’ includes a tour of the wildly colourful neighbourhood of La Boca and sophisticated Recoleta as well as an authentic Tango performance over dinner.
A Passion for Rio (Brazil)
With lushly forested mountains, dazzling beaches and an irrepressible joie de vivre set to a samba beat, Rio is one of the world’s most exciting cities. Marvel at the structural gems of Rio’s intriguing architecture and relish in vistas of the spectacular city from atop of Sugarloaf Mountain.
Chilean Wonders & Wines (Chile)
This exploration will take guests to Chile’s capital city of Santiago, a historic Chilean vineyard, a lake high in the Andes and colonial Valparaiso, making for a thrilling snapshot of a diverse country.
