Cruise Overview:
PONANT invites you to discover the wonders of Asia, during a 14-day cruise aboard Le Bellot through the Bay of Bengal. From Sri Lanka to Singapore, fall under the spell of these eastern lands marked by Buddhist and Hindu traditions.

Le Bellot will leave from Colombo, the capital of Sri Lanka, located at the cross roads of the maritime trade routes between Europe and Asia. During your port of call in Galle, admire the fortifications of this old town, testimony to its Portuguese and Dutch heritage and a UNESCO World Heritage site. From your next stop in Trincomalee, you will have the opportunity to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Polonnaruwa and Dambulla.

Your ship will then chart a course north to reach Chennai, formerly Madras, in India. This will be the occasion to discover the ancient temple of Kapaleshwara, dedicated to Shiva and built in the 7th century AD, as well as Kanchipuram, one of the seven Indian holy cities, and Mamallapuram.

In a sublime setting of emerald water, karstic cliffs, mangrove and white sand, Le Bellot will then drop anchor in Thailand. You will discover the sumptuous landscapes of the uninhabited island of Koh Rok Nok, close to Koh Lanta archipelago, a paradise for swimming and relaxation, before reaching the wonderful karstic islets of Phang Nga Bay.

Lastly you will sail the Malacca Strait, the former strategic crossroads on the silk and spice roads, to discover the beautiful cities of Penang (Georgetown) and Malacca. Influenced by Malaysian and Chinese cultures, these cities, listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, are home to many remains of the European colonial period.

Conclude your journey by disembarking in Singapore, where this Asian cruise will draw to an end. You will be seduced by the unique multicultural atmosphere of this city-State, a major commerce hub on the edges of the Orient.
