Answering your questions about Asia.
Wondering what you should expect from your Asia cruise? Read on to find out our answers to some of your most frequently asked questions, including what to pack.
Asia encompasses a rich variety of countries, cultures and histories. Tropical terrain meets fascinating architecture to create a region that’s as diverse as it is intriguing.
On a cruise, you’ll have the opportunity to experience a range of destinations without having to worry about connecting flights or tricky travel arrangements. After a full day of exploring, you’ll have the luxury of your Celebrity Cruises ship to return to.
In terms of cities, you can’t miss the ultra-modern Tokyo or the futuristic-meets-sustainable architecture of Singapore. There are plenty of natural wonders to explore, too, such as Vietnam’s Halong Bay or Thailand’s string of idyllic islands.
Weather in Asia is typically hot and humid, so pack shorts and plenty of loose, lightweight tops to keep you cool. If you plan on visiting temples and other religious sites, make sure to bring layers which cover your arms and legs. Rain is common so bring waterproof gear, and insect repellent to help protect against mosquito bites.
Asia has a number of different time zones. Thailand, for example, follows ICT (Indochina Time), which is seven hours ahead of GMT.
Asia is one of the most densely populated regions in the world, and so the cuisine varies drastically from place to place. In Thailand, you can enjoy fragrant and aromatic dishes such as pad Thai and tom kha kai. In Tokyo, try sushi and teppanyaki, where meat is cooked on a sizzling iron griddle.
Asia is generally considered a safe region to travel.
A whopping 2,197 languages are currently spoken in Asia.

The best time to visit Asia, with Celebrity Cruises.
The best months to go on an Asia cruise are between January and March, and June to September. During these months, rainfall and humidity are generally low (rainy season tends to be between October and December).
Time your Asia cruise to coincide with Chinese New Year to enjoy a range of events and celebrations across the region. In Singapore, the occasion is marked by a three-day party, which features parades, fireworks and the releasing of lanterns. Speaking of lanterns, don't miss the Taiwan Lantern Festival, which is held on the first full moon of the Lunar New Year.
