Default Expanding your Horizons in the Far East

The Cruisemates Magical Mysticism cruise to the Far East is getting closer and these are just few things I'm looking forward to seeing in Beijing, China.

The culture and architecture is completely different than anything you will find in Europe or the Caribbean.

The Lama Temple with it's treasures of Buddhist art:



The Forbidden City: Home for Centuries to The Chinese Emperor and Royal Family and never seen by the outside world.



Of course: The Great Wall. Erected to stop the Mongols from invading. It's the only man made structure that can be seen from space. Not bad for something built 2000 years ago.



This is just Beijing. We also have Hong Kong, Dalian, Shanghai, Pusan, Nagasaki and Osaka to experience.

My wife, Betty and I have been doing plenty of research and have just about everything planned out. We just want more people to share it with. So if you've ever wanted to see and experience something completely different this is your chance. Join us on the Statendam in March and experience the exotic Far Eastern world in comfort and style but still enjoy the history and culture.

Just click to get all of the information: Betty wants someone to stop me from eating Honey Beetles.

Take care,
Mike

I would go in a minute if I had the time or money, but alas, I have neither! Hope everyone who goes has a great time!

Cheers,
Michelle P.
