During the trip, precious artifacts from shipwrecks and a prominent life-sized historical ship replica of an Asian sailing vessel which forms a central part of the exhibit can be viewed. The voyage ends with a nail-biting encounter of a treacherous storm on a sailing ship in the much lauded 360º multimedia Typhoon Theatre.

Experience Asia’s rich maritime history.
