We truly LOVED our trip along the Mekong Delta on Le Cochinchine's boat, the Douce Mekong. We could hardly believe it when we realised that we were the only couple on board and we had the undivided attention of the guide, the captain and three crew men throughout the journey! We had a charming wooden cabin with a good sized comfortable bed and what a lovely surprise when we arrived to find that one of the crew had decorated the bed with rose petals and towels shaped like swans! It was so adorable and they were all beaming at us when we went into the room to see how we would react! The meals on board were really special. So much food and all freshly prepared. We enjoyed sitting out having our meals and wine on the deck especially in the evening when the sun went down.
