Ports

Hong Kong

A city of great contrasts, Hong Kong presents a vivid and vibrant feast for the senses. You will find mirrored skyscrapers, luxurious shopping malls and colourful markets vying for your attention. Take a cruise in a Chinese junk for a unique insight into this city’s lifeblood – its bustling harbour. Head to Victoria Peak for unforgettable views of the city. Visit Aberdeen Fishing Village to learn more about one of Hong Kong’s thriving communities, its boat people. Admire elaborate temples and stroll serene Chinese-style gardens. Or simply indulge in some serious retail therapy!

Hualien

Keelung

Ishigaki

Ishigaki functions as the business and transport center of the archipelago. Ishigaki Airport is the largest airport in the Yaeyamas and Japan's largest third-class airport. Ishigaki Island, like the rest of Okinawa, takes cultural influences from both Japan and China due to its location between China and mainland Japan.

Naha

Naha Port is located on Okinawa prefecture's main island, situated 600 kilometers southwest of Japan in the middle of the East China Sea. The population of the prefecture is 1.3 million. Okinawa consists of a few dozen, small islands in the southern half of the Nansei Shoto, the island chain which stretches over about one thousand kilometers from Kyushu to Taiwan. Okinawa Prefecture can be divided into three major island groups, the Okinawa Islands (Okinawa Shoto) around Okinawa Island (Okinawa Honto), the Miyako Islands (Miyako Retto) around Miyako Island and the Yaeyama Islands (Yaeyama Retto) around Ishigaki Island. Okinawa's climate is subtropical, with temperatures barely falling below 15 degrees in winter. The seas surrounding Okinawa's islands are considered among the world's most beautiful with coral reefs and abundant marine wildlife.

Shanghai

For the past 15 years Shanghai has reawakened and regained its former glory as “The Paris of the East” in the 1920s and 30s. Its new skyscrapers seem to go up almost overnight, especially in the Pudong District, Shanghai's commericial center. And the air's electric with a sense of confidence and purpose.

Even the best museum, the Shanghai Museum, is but a decade old and already owns a collection of bronze that may well be the finest in the world. Still, there are a few more ancient sites worth your attention such as the pastoral, 16th century Yu Garden, an extraordinary maze of Ming Dynasty pavilions and bridges, encircled by an udulating dragon wall.

With nearly four million people, Busan (Pusan) is South Korea's second largest city and the country's largest seaport. Pusan is your gateway to a fascinating land whose culture is a unique amalgam of old and new. Modern high-rise towers dwarf ancient Buddhist temples, and the city's bustling business district offers a stark contrast to the serene grounds of Yongdusan Park.

Nagasaki

Nagasaki is an attractively situated port city on the island of Kyushu and the capital of Nagasaki Prefecture. As one of Japan's closest port cities to the Asian mainland, Nagasaki has played a prominent role in foreign trade relations for many centuries and was the most important of only a very few ports open to restricted numbers of foreign traders during Japan's period of isolation. In more recent history, Nagasaki became the second city after Hiroshima to be destroyed by an atomic bomb towards the end of World War II.
