Asia Expeditions

Itsukushima, or Miyajima, a serene island in Hiroshima Bay, Japan. Home to ancient temples and a famous partially submerged orange Great Torii Gate at high tide, marking the entrance to the 12th-century Itsukushima Shrine.

The stone temples of Borobudur and Angkor Wat. Bali’s emerald rice paddies. Neon towers that scrape Singaporean skies. Wonders seldom cease on the world’s largest continent—and for every iconic landmark, there are captivating treasures kept secret on distant shores. Guided by our veteran team, search for the giant lizards of Komodo National Park or the orangutans of Sumatra. Enjoy Zodiac cruises in Thailand’s Phi Phi Islands or discover cultural melting pots in Malaysian ports from Malacca to Penang. Aboard our premier expedition fleet, see a secluded side of this rapidly changing region, where ancient cultures thrive in, Japanese samurai castles, villages along the Mekong river, and more.

It is my fervent hope that I can convince you to one day come to Asia with Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic, if you have not yet. There is so much beauty and wonder, both naturally and culturally.

Our Team in Asia

Every member of our team—from our naturalists and photographers to our historians and expedition leaders—is committed to ensuring you have an unforgettable experience. Many are veteran guides chosen for their extensive knowledge of subjects like marine biology and the cultures of the Pacific Rim, while special guests—from conservationists to National Geographic Photography Experts—offer additional insights into the region’s diverse natural landscape. Exploring in small groups, you’ll hear different perspectives each day of your voyage, and because there are no assigned groups you can gravitate toward the experts who share your interests and inspire your curiosity.  


Our knowledgeable and passionate expedition team is complemented by our dedicated hotel team who strive to ensure that your time on board is as comfortable and rewarding as your time on shore.
