Review of Scenic Aura

The Scenic Aura boat cruises on Mekong River in Vietnam and Cambodia (Southeast Asia). Scenic Aura itinerary program offers Mekong cruises leaving from Mandalay and Pyay-Prome (to/from Yangon, fka Rangoon). This riverboat is the 2nd of two ships in the Scenic's fleet operating in Asia - the first being the sister-ship Scenic Spirit (on Irrawaddy  River in Myanmar).

Binoculars and bicycles are also provided complimentary to fully enjoy the scenery everywhere along the itinerary route.
