the staff on board was very nice and friendly (but they should be less stressed ;-)…The cabin was very clean…………………………. I'm a coffee-addict so it was quite disappointing that the Vietnamese coffee wasn't served during the breakfast. It would have been great to have a bike, while visiting the village on the first day. We should have spent more time at the market.………………………………

Our trip to Vietnam also took us to the Mekong Delta on the Mekong Eyes. Since it was still a little before the season, we were only six people on the ship. The journey leads through the bustling river landscape, permanently past houses and small places where people live right on the river. The impressions are really overwhelming. Our tour lasted 2 days, but I had a 4-5 day tour in the Mekong Delta which would have brought some surprises. Above all, this region is not as crowded with tourist boats as the Halong Bay in the north and you get a great insight into the daily lives of people.

very nice boat trip, 24 hours on the Mekong; with full board us beautiful, if very small cabins. Great ship, nice, professional crew, more expensive than in Halong Bay, but exclusive (only 3 ships of this kind on the Mekong) The two cabins at the rear have a small balcony, but unfortunately also the exhaust pipe, which we did not notice (ship is in the night at anchor), beds and bathroom good, food ok. Overall very relaxed and romantic atmosphere on board
