Itineraries

Day 1: Ho Chi Minh City - My Tho - Cai Be (D)

"Good Morning Saigon"
Bid farewell to the hustle and bustle of Saigon as we travel 70 kilometers south by land to My Tho to embark boutique ship. We will be served a refreshing welcome drink as the ship steadily glides along the Mekong. We will bathe in the fading sunset on the balcony followed by a briefing at the lounge. Later, a welcome dinner awaits us.
When approaching Cai Be, the ship drops anchor to moor midstream where the river is several kilometers wide. Overnight in Cai Be.

Meals: D

Accommodation: Jahan cruise

Day 2: Cai Be – Sa Dec – Tan Chau (B, L, D)

Everyday, our journey starts with an invigorating Tai Chi lesson on the sun deck just as the sun begins its gentle glow. Coffee and tea awaits the early bird.
The day-tour starts with a visit to Cai Be’s boisterous and colorful floating market on a traditional sampan (a flat bottomed traditional Vietnamese wooden boat). During the ride, discover breathtaking landscapes along the river and quaff the rustic life on the Mekong Delta. The cruise will halt intermittently to allow us to observe how rice paste, rice paper, rice cookies, rice pop, rice wine and coconut candies are made, enjoy local life along the canals on the way back to the Ship for lunch.
In the afternoon, we cruise to Sa Dec. Upon arrival, we embark a traditional sampan to tour Binh Thanh Island to visit an untouchable village. Here, every villager is involved in the process of making rattan mat and this give us the chance to interact with the old local people. We then board the Ship for a tranquil evening cruise towards Tan Chau. The Ship will moor midstream overnight near Tan Chau.

Meals: B, L, D

Accommodation: Jahan cruise

Day 3: Tan Chau – Border crossing – Phnom Penh (B, L, D)

Welcome to the fish sanctuary of Vietnam. Begin your day with a hearty breakfast at the Dining Hall of your balcony. Brace yourself for a short excursion in Tan Chau, a pleasant town near the Cambodian border with sizeable Chinese, Kinh and Khmer community.
Firstly, the journey takes you to the “evergreen” islands where you will be thrilled to learn the life of the locals. The inhabitants of these islands live on houses poised on high stilts - a centuries-old tradition in this part of the Mekong Delta.
We stop to visit a fish farm located in the Tan Chau canal - this farm consists of floating houses and the villagers make their living by cultivating fish. You continue by boat to Tan Chau pier, disembark here and stroll around this colorful local market with lots of regional products. You return to the cruise Ship after your market visit.

The thimg that brings the rating down is the discrepancy between what was written om the website and what actually happened. As an example the website said we should be at the floating market (Can Tho) at 6am with early wakeup. However we met up 6.45 and arrived at the market eightish. Thus there where no sunrise and early morning light for photography. Nor where there any locals left for their morning shopping. When we asked the guide he said that no one gets upp that early anymore - thay was just during the war when markets took place in the cover of darkness. My suspicion though is thay the tour has struck some deals with some traders and the market - to keep the number of tourist down during busy hour. Still a good tour if you know what to expect.

I really loved this tour and I would highly recommend it! The first day was slightly less interesting but then the second and third day, entirely spent on the Mekong river, were absolutely amazing. The tour was very well-organized, our tour guide was very professional, the accommodation exceeded my expectations and all the meals were superb. The border crossing was very smooth. Definitely the best way of going to Cambodia from Ho Chi Minh City.

Very friendly and helpful staff throughout the cruise made for an unforgettable experience. On board accommodation was very good considering and the meals were excellent, with more than enough to eat. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and provided excellent support throughout. The cruise provided some extra land based activities as well as the opportunity to navigate a small back channel in a sampan which just added to the experience. I'd certainly recommend to anyone visiting Saigon to visit the Mekong.
