Hi Jackie,

Both should be hot. Lots to do in both ports. Singapore flyer is a great excursion as is a visit to Raffles which includes a Singapore Sling (avoid afternoon tea there - packed with tourists (!) and no better than what you get on ship). Both available to do independently. If there in the evening the tri-shaws are a good way to see around China Town.

With Hong Kong there is lots to do. An evening Harbour Cruise to see the laser show is brill although you get just a good a vantage from the ships berth. Lots of road works happening on HK Island at moment, but Stanley Market worth visiting.

You won't be bored in either place.

Enjoy......

Hong Kong....take a trip on the star ferry....go up to the peak by the railway.......lots to fit in.

The Tea Museum is in the park in the centre which from the star ferry is a short walk. As is the Train to the peak.

Good advise Gill57. Raffles is a must in Singapore. There is a open top tourist bus that is worth it too. Picks you up from under the Singapore flyer and its hop on hop off. one of the stops on this is Raffles too. The night zoo is very good too.. Enjoy your stay xxxxx

Singapore is great, besides all the other tips, a visit to the Botanical Gardens is good especially the Orchid garden. You could then wander down Orchard Road & shop for a few bargains.

Hong Kong is a very busy place, but a DIY trip to Stanley Market is well worth the bus journey.

Hope you enjoy the cruise.

Mike

If you are in Singapore overnight, may I suggest the Singapore By Night tour.  It is based around a relaxing bumboat trip, taking in the amazing laser light/water fountain show and a lift up to the viewing platform at Marina Bay Sands Skypark.

Being almost on the Equator, Singapore is hot & steamy all year round. HK temperature in March should be quite nice and not humid. Singapore is easy to get around yourself on the MTR and so cheap so don't pay a lot of money for a ship's tour. Raffles hotel is worth visiting but the Long Bar is a tourist trap where they serve poor Singapore slings made from syrup and charge a lot of money. You get proper ones on the ship where you can see them being prepared. Eat in one of the many food courts which offer good local cooking for very low prices. If you have time take the monorail over to Sentosa island . We spent a day doing that and it cost less than £20 including lunch in a food court. We love HK and once you have the done the main tourist bits, take the bus to Stanley. We had a nice meal in the Vietnamese restaurant there. Enjoy both places!!

Singapore is an easy place to get around.  We just bought tickets for the open bus tour and it takes you all around the city to the highlights and its up to you when and where you get off
