Premium Mekong River Journeys

Life in the Mekong Delta is very much lived on, by or near the water: houses are built on stilts to withstand the floods, ferries carry people and vehicles between banks and boats ply their wares on the watery highway.

We invite you to discover this everyday river life on board our sampans. You can choose between private and join-in cruises, ranging from a few hours to 1, 2 or 3 days.

One-day cruises

Away from the hustle and bustle of life on the Mekong’s main tributaries lies a world of pastoral harmony among the many tiny waterways that make up the Mekong Delta. Our Cai Be Princess sampan brings you closer to the life of the river people as you cruise amongst fields of water hyacinth, floating markets, boats loaded with fruit and vegetables and children playing in the river. 

Two-day cruises

Our two-day “Life on the River” cruise gives you a deeper insight into life in the Mekong Delta. Starting either from Cai Be or Can Tho, it stops for visits along the way.

Three-day cruises

Our three-day cruises give you an opportunity to explore three different areas in the Mekong Delta, depending on your next destination: 

  • Can Tho – the rice bowl of Vietnam
  • Chau Doc – on the border with Cambodia 
  • Rach Gia – the gateway to Phu Quoc.

Le Longanier Restaurant 

Nestled in a lush tropical garden, the exquisite colonial-style Le Longanier Restaurant offers the perfect en-route lunch stop for visitors to the Mekong Delta. The restaurant specializes in Mekong-style food combining fresh herbs, local vegetables and fruit, local sh and opens for lunch only. Reservations should be made in advance to ensure availability.
