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.

Accommodation: Jayavarman 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.

Accommodation: Jayavarman 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. Overnight we anchor midstream near Phnom Penh.

Accommodation: Jayavarman Cruise

Day 4: Phnom Penh (B)

"Pearl of the East"
Off we go early in the morning to witness a truly indescribable scene while approaching Phnom Penh's river promenade. Sadly, after breakfast, it is time to disembark the cruise.

Accommodation: N/A

Faultless, punctual and amazing value for money even by Phnom Penh standards.We were fed, tasty vegetarian food, (by choice), a much needed escape from it's full on Capital. Silk island was interesting even though I'm not really a consumer, (own just 1 item being a silk tie). You should take a few Dollar bills for tips, all well deserved, very memorable.

Perfect way to escape the CRAZY of the city. Picked up at hotel and taken straight there, the boat looks a million times better in real life (looks like an old photo but it's actually really nice), lovely leisurely sail along the Mekong. It was only me and one other person so we had the whole boat to ourselves and had a great day!! Found the silk Island fascinating!! The tuk tuk ride to get to it was really pleasant and pretty. The people there were so lovely and friendly, she seemed to genuinely enjoy what she was talking about which made it really interesting. The scarves to buy range from $10-$30 but they're so intricate and beautiful and with the work that goes into them, I can see why! (Bought 4!) It's just worth going for the views, the beauty, being on the Mekong and to escape the city! I also took the lunch option and the food was great, as was the drinks menu & free cocktail!

The rest of a quiet cruise that contrasts with the excitement of the city just right there on the right bank. The contrast also with life on the other side where time is frozen like a return 80 years back. Cruise so to do and nothing more to complain about the staff, hospitality and catering, a simple barbecue but good. The price of the correct drinks and the moose cocktail. We had a nice evening
