The Malacca Strait is a major waterway in Southeast Asia, historically a prize for local kingdoms and Western colonizers. The Strait’s importance will be brought to light on Star Cruises’ portfolio of itineraries that cruise through this important waterway, each cruise calling at several ports along the way:
Singapore – a hyper-modern city state with a history and culture rooted in British trade and inter-ethnic harmony between its Malay, Chinese, and Indian citizens. From the heritage buildings around the City Hall district to the futuristic architecture around Marina Bay; shopping centers around Orchard Road to the cheap food in hawker centers at almost every corner; Singapore offers surprising contrasts everywhere you turn.
Kuala Lumpur – accessible from Port Klang, Malaysia’s capital takes visitors on a dizzying spin through British-era old buildings, iconic architecture blending Western and Islamic design influences, and modern shopping and dining options for all budgets.
Malacca – A former Malay kingdom and trading post, Malacca was eventually fought over by the Portuguese, Dutch and British, each of whom left a mark on this unique destination. For the best of Malacca, explore its attractions situated around the old town – centered around the former Stadthuys and Christ Church, opposite Chinatown and Jonkers Street running through it.
Penang – The British took over this island in the Malacca Strait and transformed it into one of their finest trading ports in Southeast Asia. While the British Empire may have set, their influence remains in the buildings around George Town; the locals up the ante with amazing street food that draws eaters from all around Asia.
Langkawi – an island paradise granted World Geopark status by UNESCO, travelers will lose themselves in the natural grandeur of conservation areas like Machincang Cambrian Geoforest Park, Kilim Karst Geoforest Park and Dayang Bunting Marble Geoforest park.
