Hualien, Taiwan
The gateway to the east coast of Taiwan is where you can embrace its culture, explore majestic architecture and enjoy beautiful green spaces. Tour ancient temples, sample delicious regional cuisine and browse local markets. If you want to experience natural beauty, visit Taroko National Park and hike to the scenic gorge carved by the Liwu River in Hualien.

Manila, Philippines
With a population of 12 million, Manila serves as the capital of the Philippines and is a new port of call for NCL. The city boasts a rich history dating back to 1565 when it was colonised by the Spanish. You can delve into this history at the National Museum of the Philippines or visit Rizal Park, which features both museums and monuments. 

Seoul, South Korea
The capital of South Korea, Seoul combines a 5,000-year-old heritage with modern skyscrapers, high-tech subways, Buddhist temples, palaces and street markets. Spend your day visiting a Korean village, explore the 14th-century Gyeongbok Palace or go for a wander through the fish market. Don't forget to savour a Korean barbecue with kimchi and bibimbap while you're in port.

Kyoto, Japan
If you're seeking traditional Japanese culture, Kyoto is the place to experience it. The city is home to approximately 1,600 Buddhist temples and more than 400 Shintō shrines. Discover tranquil gardens and delight in local cuisine while visiting historic sites – and perhaps you’ll spot a geisha along the way!
