Journey Through East Java, Indonesia
 5 days / 4 nights
This journey through East Java will lead us from Surabaya to Banyuwangi, crossing many smoking volcanoes, national parks, traditional villages and unspoilt panoramas. East Java is often synonymous of raw volcanic power and unique landscapes created by these unpredictable mountains of fire, offering inspiring sunrises like on top of the Mount Bromo or Mount Ijen, with its crater lake and brave sulphur miners. The volcanic activity has created a largely fertile area and verdant agriculture all across the region. At the end of this journey, we will take a ferry to cross the Bali Strait - a stretch of water separating Java and Bali of 2.4 km wide at its narrowest between Ketapang and Gilimanuk- and drop you in the south of Bali.
Singapore Secret Road Map, Singapore
 3 days / 2 nights
Over this 3-day itinerary, we explore lesser-known sights and national park-style wonders, indulge in nature and contemporary history, try out established and new local foodie haunts. A short exploration of Singapore like only the locals can show you their city, with the comfort of a luxury car and a driver. You will be given walking maps, directions for sightseeing, day trip suggestions and a Destination Guide including dining and shopping recommendations. Explore the cities at your own time.

Udaipur, the city of Dawn, is the Jewel of Mewar - a kingdom ruled by the Sisodia Dynasty for 1200 years, located around the azure water of its lake and surrounded by lush green hills of Aravallis. The city is a kaleidoscope of fairy-tale palaces, lakes, temples, gardens and narrow lanes strewn with stalls; carry the flavour of a heroic past, epitomizing velour and chivalry. The reflection of these building in the placid waters of the Lake Pichola is an enticing sight. This journey offers you to dive into the most elegant and feminine Rajasthani city in 4 days.
Land, Sea, Underwater adventures, Maldives
8 days / 7 nights
The Maldives is a nation of 1,192 islands spread across the equator in the Indian Ocean and grouped into a double chain of 26 atolls. Its unique geography makes it a dreamlike destination, with reefs offering bands of color, tiny islets rimmed with white soft sand and clear shallow waters all around. The reefs are home to a thousand species of fish, manta rays and whale sharks. This is this paradise that Alexa J Private Cruise makes you discover through a week of cruise from island to island.

Alexa J is without doubt the most beautifully designed sailing yacht in the world, combining the sense of old-world charm with all modern comforts. In this itinerary, we propose you to sail to the fairytale-looking bays with crystal clear water and golden rocky walls, to the picture perfect small harbours, to uninhabited islands where only dolphins will be your company.
Vignettes of Nepal, Nepal

An introduction to Nepal’s Himalayan Foothills and the rich jungles of the lowland Terai plains. Nepal resonates with all serious explorers and travellers as a must visit country. A land rich in culture, ancient monuments and a centre for Hindu and Buddhist teaching over many thousands of years.
