Itineraries

Day 1: Phnompenh – Border crossing – Tan Chau (B, L, D)

Start new day with Tai Chi at the sun deck with fresh tea and coffee be ready to served. After breakfast, we will be captivated by a comprehensive lecture on Cambodia’s modern history.
The cruise liner then sets sail for a lazy day of cruising along the main Mekong Channel. As this is an international shipping route, you will witness large commercial ships plying this route. Later, in the afternoon, we set off to the Vietnamese border for the requisite cross border paperwork. As the process tends to take some time, we bask in the glow of the afternoon sun on the sun deck, pamper ourselves silly at the Spa, or sharpen our culinary skills with the Heritage Line’s Cambodian and Vietnamese cuisine cooking class. The ship ankors midstream overnight in Tan Chau.

Accommodation: Jayavarman Cruise

Day 2: Tan Chau – My An Hung - Sa Dec (B, L, D)

Welcome to the fish sanctuary of Vietnam. We begin our day with a hearty breakfast at the Dining Hall or at your private balcony. We will brace ourselves for a short excursion in Tan Chau, a pleasant town near the Cambodian border with sizeable Chinese, Kinh and Khmer communities. We will start the trip by a traditional vehicle called “ xeloi” to local market and get to a local boat to visit fish farm and back to the ship (or opposite). Here you will see the daily life of Vietnamese people in Mekong. Lunch on boat
In the afternoon, we will set off for My An Hung Village. Passengers walk to the family house through the vegetable garden. We will cross a monkey bridge and see seasonal vegetable fields. Then gather at the family’s house to taste tea with honey with local delicacies and fruits before back to the Ship to set off for Sa Dec in the late afternoon. Overnight in Sa Dec.

Accommodation: Jayavarman Cruise

Day 3: Sa Dec - Cai Be - My Tho (B, L, D)

We arrive in Sa Dec late at night and the following morning, we embark a traditional sampan(a flat bottomed traditional Vietnamese wooden boat) to tour Binh Thanh Island and its man-made canals. Here, every villager is involved in the process of growing and processing water hyacinths into natural fiber floor mats and rattan baskets.
After lunch onboard, the ship arrives in Cai Be. The tour starts with a visit to Cai Be's boisterous and colorful floating market where traders gather in a cacophonous congregation. During the languid ride, we discover breathtaking landscapes along the river and quaff the rustic life on the Mekong Delta.
The evergreen islands along the Mekong River remain unknown to many people. The cruise will halt intermittenly to allow us to observe how rice paste, rice cookies and coconut candies are made, along with the Longan fruit drying process. After touring the canals, we head to an ancient house surrounded by fruit orchards before heading to the ship for dinner.
We then board the Ship for a tranquil evening cruise towards My Tho. A wonderful farewell party awaits us on the cruise. Overnight in My Tho.

Accommodation: Jayavarman Cruise

Day 4: My Tho - Ho Chi Minh City (B)

Our cruise on the magnificent ship comes to an end as the ship winds its way to My Tho, approximately 70km south of Saigon on the upper Mekong river in Vietnam. We bid farewell to the cruise as our journey comes to a close. But the memories - and the friendships made on board - linger on for a lot longer.
We disembark at around 8:30 am and we join the transfer to madding crowd of Saigon. Drop off at the meeting point in Saigon

Loved this boat cruise! The staff were nice, the owner was on board and made sure we were taken care of and the views were amazing! We were probably lucky enough to see a sunset as it is still the wet season. The price was right and was an enjoyable cruise. If you want a chill night out this is the thing to do!

Boarded on the ship for the sunset cruise. Only had a group of 7 people so we got to enjoy the whole boat to ourselves. Pleasant cruise to enjoy the views along the riverfront and the local villagers fishing across the other side of the river. Nice boat that didn't have any of the disco lights or dance music being blasted on board.
