Scenic invited a lucky group of travel agents on board their very first ship in South East Asia – Scenic Spirit. For eight unforgettable days 32 agents cruised the mighty Mekong River through Vietnam and Cambodia.
Starting in French infused Vietnam, agents had the chance to experience different Scenic Freechoice activities including visiting the famous Cai Be floating markets; exploring Dong Ha Hiep Island; visiting Evergreen Island and the local Cai Dai Temple; the town of Chau Doc, and finally the Tra Su Bird Sanctuary.
Sailing further north and crossing the Cambodian border, the famil travelled to the capital of Phnom Penh where agents could choose to explore the busy city by tuk tuk, taking in some of its many highlights such as the Russian Market and the stunning colonial buildings. Or many chose to experience the very moving Killing Fields and tour Tuol Sleng, the former school which was converted to the main prison by the Khmer Rouge.
Agents also enjoyed two Scenic Enrich experiences in Cambodia – high tea with an exclusive private shadow puppet show at the luxury Raffles, Hotel Le Royal, and a blessing from a Buddhist monk in the pagoda in the ancient capital of Oudong.
