At Cocos (Keeling) Islands, relax on Australia’s best beach, drift snorkel or kayak on a turquoise lagoon and admire the comical antics of Red-footed boobies. Wildlife abounds and astounds at Christmas Island, with famous red and robber crabs and tropical waters filled with extraordinary marine life. Continue on towards Singapore, discovering Indonesian culture and appreciating the colonial Dutch architecture of Batavia.
