Irrawaddy river cruises

Join Scenic for a luxury river cruise in South East Asia
Setting a course through the mystical heart of Myanmar, the Irrawaddy grants passage through some of the most enigmatic landscapes on earth, where ancient temples emerge above the jungle treeline, and people hold true to traditions centuries in the making. Rudyard Kipling once described Myanmar as “unlike any place you know”, and you’ll discover the truth of this sentiment yourself with an Irrawaddy river cruise from Scenic.
Join us for a luxury river cruise on the Irrawaddy, and prepare to immerse yourself in the colourful wonders of Myanmar. Our 5-star ship, Scenic Aura, has been custom built to cruise the waters of the Irrawaddy, and offers an intimate and luxurious base from which to savour the cultural highlights and fascinating heritage dotted along the banks of this charming waterway. From the enchanting waters of Lake Inle to the architectural splendour of royal Mandalay, you’ll experience life on the Irrawaddy through the eyes of a local with Scenic.

Perfect for:

  • Historians: Ho Chi Minh City
  • Culture vultures: Angkor Wat
  • Railway enthusiasts: Eastern and Oriental Express train journey
  • Foodies: Phnom Penh, local food market and Khmer cooking demonstration
