A Selection of Scenic Southeast Asia River Cruises


The wonders never cease during a Scenic river cruise in Southeast Asia. Choose to cruise the fabled Mekong, and you’ll be privy to some of the region’s most esteemed heritage highlights – from the majestic temples of Angkor Wat high in the jungles of Cambodia, to the charming floating markets of Cai Be and the heady bustle of Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. Daily Scenic Freechoice excursions ensure a cultural odyssey like no other, while exclusive Scenic Enrich experiences promise moments of wonder to treasure for a lifetime.

Or, perhaps you’d prefer to join Scenic on the waters of the Irrawaddy? Cruising from Mandalay to Yangon, immerse in the time-honoured customs of Myanmar, from a special alms ceremony at a traditional Buddhist monastery to the lamp-lighting ritual of Yangon’s Shwedagon Pagoda. The Irrawaddy cuts a majestic route through the length of former-Burma, providing simple passage through a country of extraordinary depth and contrast.

Bringing their signature brand of all-inclusive luxury river cruising to the waters of Southeast Asia, Scenic have launched two purpose-built ships to transport passengers on the adventure of a lifetime on the Mekong and Irrawaddy rivers – each boasting the same levels of comfort, elegance and refinement found across Scenic’s growing fleet of luxury river ships.

Guests journeying the waters of Southeast Asia on board Scenic Spirit and Scenic Aura can look forward to unrivalled attention to detail and best-in-class features, from a spacious balcony suite, complemented by a personal butler, to the very best in fine-dining venues offering a choice of Asian-inspired cuisine – and that’s just the start.
