Perhaps the most famous South Pacific island of all is idyllic Tahiti. Its capital, Pape'ete, is home to historic Le Marche market, the lush Vaipaha Gardens and a perfect lagoon, and seems to have appeared straight out of a Gauguin painting.

Alternatively, seek out the glass lifts that feature in some of the resort's hotels, and take a ride to enjoy the stupendous views.
Bustling former gold town Townsville is not only a gateway to the bush beyond the city, it's also close to beautiful Magnetic Island, where koala bears can often be seen clinging to the eucalyptus trees.
Two days in sun-baked Cairns bring opportunities to take a glass-bottomed boat to a coral cay - as this is the stopping-off point for the Great Barrier Reef - or to head inland on an excursion to the magnificent tropical rainforest of the Atherton Tablelands.
Sail round the Cape York Peninsula, through the Arafura Sea, to your final Australian call, Darwin. From here you'll be able to join a shore excursion to the World Heritage Site at Kakadu National Park, with its swamps, mangroves, salt-water crocodiles and ancient aboriginal art.
Today, a first Indonesian island call offers the possibility of seeing the fearsome Monitor Lizard. The legendary giant 'dragons' are found only here and neighbouring Rinca, so join a National Park ranger to explore. Magellan sails this afternoon, heading towards the next paradise isle.
Magellan stays overnight in Bali's port of Benoa, gateway to an island as welcoming and colourful as any on the planet. Head ashore by tender to discover some of the delights of the south of the island, or take an excursion to explore further afield.

While Old Manila provides an insight to the city's past, and the restored cathedral reflects its status as Asia's largest Christian settlement, reminders of its long-term ties with the west can be seen throughout.
Two full days in Hong Kong will give you lots of time to discover this exciting city. Explore under your own steam, or choose from optional excursions - to Victoria Peak, floating city Aberdeen, colourful Stanley Market, to take in the North Shore's spectacular skyline or cross Victoria Harbour on the Star Ferry.
Cruise into bewitching, UNESCO-listed Halong Bay, where countless limestone pillars and cone-shaped islands rise out of the seascape.
An optional shore excursion, today, takes you to theVietnamese capital, Hanoi, with its labyrinthine '36 Streets', tranquil Hoan Kiem Lake and its island Ngoc Son Temple. Elsewhere in the city, highlights include the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, the former leader's traditional house, the fascinating Museum of Ethnology and colourful Dong Xuan market.
Magellan calls in the tiny port of Chan May, gateway to central Vietnam's stunning beaches and UNESCO-listed treasures.
