Journey with Bev
From the gulf to the sea to the bay, this Western world tour starts with the ultra modern atmosphere of Dubai and ends with the futuristic architecture of Singapore, with plenty of Old World inspiration in between. Everything is saturated in color on this old trading route: tropical beaches and rainforests, saris, Kathakali performers, spices and teas. Rise early in Mumbai to tour British colonial monuments and the Thieves Market, or take a boat ride to the ancient cave carvings at Elephanta lsland. You'II love Goa's old colonial town and beaches, the peaceful backwaters of Kerala, and the murals of Mattancherry Palace. Sri Lanka is a wonderland of World Heritage Sites, including Kandy, must-see Sigiriya, wildlife sanctuaries, and rainforests. Re-enter the modern world at Kuala Lumpur, where you'II find tasty local food, shopping, and the soaring Petronas Twin Towers. Your voyage concludes in Singapore, where the range of upscale shopping options is as diverse as the melting pot of cultures that reside there.
