Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Romantically referred to by the French as the Pearl of the Orient, Ho Chi Minh City today is a super-charged city of sensory overload. Motorbikes zoom day and night along the wide boulevards, through the narrow back alleys and past vendors pushing handcarts hawking goods of all descriptions. Still called Saigon by most residents, this is Vietnam's largest city and the engine driving the country's current economic resurgence, but despite its frenetic pace, it's a friendlier place than Hanoi and locals will tell you the food—simple, tasty, and incorporating many fresh herbs—is infinitely better than in the capital.This is a city full of surprises. The madness of the city's traffic—witness the oddball things that are transported on the back of motorcycles—is countered by tranquil pagodas, peaceful parks, quirky coffee shops, and whole neighborhoods hidden down tiny alleyways, although some of these quiet spots can be difficult to track down. Life in Ho Chi Minh City is lived in public: on the back of motorcycles, on the sidewalks, and in the parks. Even when its residents are at home, they're still on display. With many living rooms opening onto the street, grandmothers napping, babies being rocked, and food being prepared, are all in full view of passersby.Icons of the past endure in the midst of the city’s headlong rush into capitalism. The Hotel Continental, immortalized in Graham Greene's The Quiet American, continues to stand on the corner of old Indochina's most famous thoroughfare, the rue Catinat, known to American G.I.s during the Vietnam War as Tu Do (Freedom) Street and renamed Dong Khoi (Uprising) Street by the Communists. The city still has its ornate opera house and its old French city hall, the Hôtel de Ville. The broad colonial boulevards leading to the Saigon River and the gracious stucco villas are other remnants of the French colonial presence. Grisly reminders of the more recent past can be seen at the city's war-related museums. Residents, however, prefer to look forward rather than back and are often perplexed by tourists' fascination with a war that ended 40 years ago.The Chinese influence on the country is still very much in evidence in the Cholon district, the city's Chinatown, but the modern office towers and international hotels that mark the skyline symbolize Vietnam's fixation on the future.

Bangkok, Thailand

Bangkok hits your senses harder than extra chillies on a bowl of Som Tam. Few cities in the world so effortlessly intertwine the old and new, with centuries-old Buddhist temples and creaky tuk-tuk rickshaws found alongside glistening high rises and shiny rooftop bars – there’s no cultural feast like it. Arriving at this buzzy city on a cruise ship is perfect for those who want to experience all it has to offer without holidaying there and the city features two cruise ports. Most ships will dock at the port of Laem Chabang, around an hour and a half transfer from the city, but smaller vessels can dock at Klong Toey on the Chao Phraya River, just a 30-minute drive away. So, in this surprisingly big city, what should you see? Don’t miss the Grand Palace and ornate Wat Arun, haggle over local leather goods at super mall MBK, soak up one of the city’s many floating markets, and, when you’ve worked up an appetite, head to the bustling stalls of Nang Loeng Market and feast on Tom Yum soup, pad thai and a myriad of mouth-watering curries. Then before you head back to port, make sure you visit one of the city’s luxurious rooftop bars such as Sky Bar or Vertigo, where the gleaming heady metropolis seems almost peaceful.
