Cruise Itinerary

Day 1: Panorama Cruise (L, D)

In the morning we pick you up at your hotel in Saigon and take you to Can Tho or Cai Be. You board your wooden river cruiser around noon. After a refreshing welcome drink we show you our on-board facilities and your cosy cabin. As lunch is served, the boat starts cruising. Sit back and watch the fantastic scenery and the daily life of the Mekong people. In the afternoon you can disembark for a guided leisurely stroll through the village and the surrounding fruit orchards or rice fields. Meet the friendly locals and taste the local produce and fruits. Get back on board and enjoy a drink at the bar or relax on deck as the sun sets over the magnificent water landscape. The boat will anchor for the night. The day ends with a delicious on-board dinner.

Day 2: Life on the water and floating markets (B, L, D)

Wake up well rested to the sound of the River and get ready for another exciting day of sightseeing. At 6.30h the river cruiser sets off for a sunrise cruise. Watch the locals go about their daily work drying exotic fruits and building ships on the wooden yards while enjoying an early breakfast. After breakfast, we will board a sampan boat to Cai Be or Cai Rang floating market, the region’s busiest and most lively markets. Marvel at the sheer abundance of exotic fruits, vegetables and skilfully handcrafted regional products. We will pull up to the boats for talking and bargaining with the merchants. We will also visit some of the local candy and cake making factories or boat through the green water landscape to see local houses, verdant orchards and ship-building yards. Later in the morning your can boat through the green water landscape on a little rowing sampan to see local houses, verdant orchards and ship-building yards. Alternatively you can discover the nearby town on foot or on explore the small side canals on a bicycle. The boat now resumes its journey as lunch is served. In the afternoon there will be another side trip to one of the exotic villages along the way.

Day 3: An exotic world of its own (B)

After breakfast and an early start through the glorious morning atmosphere on the river we will visit another floating market. Be sure not to miss the great photo opportunities for authentic snapshots of the Mekong people and their life. Take another sampan side trip right into the lush rural landscape, the fertile fields, the exuberant green. Then it’s time to pack up and return to the pier from which we started. The boat trip ends at around 11.00 - 11.30 on the pier. After lunch, we will take you back to your hotel in Saigon.
