Be Intoxicated by the Great Rivers of South East Asia


From the pristine beauty and colonial elegance of Vietnam to the sacred highlights of Cambodia; the celebrated cuisine of Thailand to the vibrant antiquities of Myanmar; the rivers of South East Asia are gateways to a world of extraordinary beauty and colourful heritage.

Visit the age-old temples and pilgrimage sites of Myanmar’s Mount Popa. Or take a whistle-stop tour of bustling Ho Chi Minh City on a vintage Vespa. With Freechoice, the decision is yours. 

For the most exclusive encounters in South East Asia, you can count on Scenic Enrich. These hand-picked events reveal an authentic slice of local life, showcasing centuries of customs and traditions. You’ll dine in unique restaurants, visit spiritual temples and ancient ruins, and open a door on village life that will take you back generations.

Luxury Travel on the World’s Extraordinary Waterways

All Scenic river cruises are renowned for their exclusive luxury, and our South East Asia itineraries are no exception. Our elegant ships, Scenic Spirit and Scenic Aura, have set a new precedent in comfort and refinement since their deployment on the timeless waters of the Mekong and Irrawaddy — elevating luxury river cruising beyond anything yet seen on the rivers of Asia. 

Opulent and luxurious, Spirit and Aura each feature only a small number of suites, creating a sense of peace and intimacy few travellers get to experience. To make sure each guest is privy to the beauty extending beyond the river banks, each suite features a private balcony, as well as a separate living and bedroom area — the perfect place to relax after another extraordinary day. 

To top off this journey of ultimate luxury, you’ll have access to one of the most generous all-inclusive services found on the waters of South East Asia. We’ve thought of everything, including unlimited drinks, fabulous dining and even a private butler, to make your trip along the waters of the Mekong or Irrawaddy extra special.
