Mekong river cruises

Twisting and turning through the colourful landscapes of South East Asia

The Mekong begins in the Tibetan Plateau before twisting and turning its way across the colourful landscapes of South East Asia for 4,350 kilometres. As Asia’s second longest river, the Mekong is more than just a trans-boundary waterway; it’s the lifeblood of the people who call its banks home.

South East Asia is a treasure trove of culture and colour. Passing through China, Myanmar (Burma), Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam, the waters offer a unique vantage point from which to soak up the ancient sights. Between the rice paddies of the Mekong Delta and the elegant French colonial capital of Phnom Penh in Cambodia, a mixture of magical temples, wild forests, time-honoured cultures and bustling cities scatter the exotic land.

Explore the many wonders of the meandering Mekong river in unforgettable style and comfort. On a Scenic South East Asia river cruise, you can connect with the magical power of one of nature’s most biologically diverse waterways.

When you step on board our majestic Space-Ship, Scenic Spirit, you’ll enjoy all of the luxury and opulence of the world’s most magnificent boutique hotels.
