Scenic Spirit Mekong river cruising

How to get the best out of Mekong in 5-star luxury


The Mekong River is a place of myriad secrets. From centuries old civilisations and soul stirring traditions, to unique wildlife and delicious cuisines, endless wonders lie strewn on the banks of this majestic river. 

South East Asia is an ocean of invigorating sights, smells, flavours and experiences and the only way to make the most of it is to lose yourself in it. That is not to say you have to leave the luxuries of the modern world behind. Scenic’s all-inclusive Mekong River cruises offer a seamless combination of the best of both worlds.

Explore the ancient wonders of the Mekong in 5-star luxury on board our boutique vessel – Scenic Spirit, custom-designed to navigate the bountiful river. On a Mekong River cruise with Scenic, the stunning ancient wonders you find onshore will be appropriately matched by the incredible wonders you will find on board. 

Scenic Sun Lounge in every suite

On the luxurious Scenic Spirit, each of the 34 suites feature an attached balcony, which seamlessly transforms into a Scenic Sun Lounge at the touch of a button.

Take in the unobstructed views of the glorious river as you enjoy your in-suite breakfast or morning coffee.

Your luxurious suite also boasts a walk-in wardrobe, separate living room, downy pillows, Egyptian cotton sheets and complimentary shoeshine to complete your 5-star experience.

Dive deep into the mystical culture

Each Scenic Enrich experience is handcrafted to take you deeper into the destinations you visit. From moving spiritual experiences like lighting an oil lamp in a pagoda and receiving blessings from a monk, to gastronomic experiences like an exclusive gala dinner at an Angkor temple and closed door distillery tastings. Scenic Enrich experiences are once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to help you create memories that will stay with you long after your visit has ended.


Scenic Freechoice options, on the other hand, give you the freedom to tailor your journey to your pace and preference. Take a multisensory vintage Vespa foodie tour, driving through the bustling South East Asian markets, sampling the finest local cuisine, or explore the serene Tra Su Bird Sanctuary by small sampans, silently taking in the rich array of wildlife and birds. Your options are plentiful, diverse and similarly exciting.

Varied dining options

The 5-star dining experience on board the Scenic Spirit is a delicious combination of local and world cuisine. Our world class on board chefs take inspiration from the regions we travel through to whip up meals that will make your day. We source our ingredients from the best regional suppliers so that you receive food that is both fresh as well as seasonal. 

Enjoy a relaxed dining experience at Crystal Dining with a combination of local specialities and home-grown favourites with ever-changing scenery outside the floor-to-ceiling windows. At the River Café, socialise with your fellow travellers in a casual chic ambiance as you enjoy a scrumptiously assorted menu, from gelato bar to healthy snacks. For guests in the top suites, you’ll even receive an exclusive invitation to the Chef’s Table for an amazing 10-course dinner. If on a certain day, you just don’t feel up to leaving your room for a meal, there’s always in-suite dining services at your disposal.
