Forget strenuous day-trips: Mekong Eyes is the first choice in on-board accommodation on the Mekong river. You wake up well rested in the morning and have plenty of time for extensive and authentic holiday impressions.
Day 1: Panorama Cruise
In the morning we pick you up at your hotel in Saigon and take you to Cai Be. You board the wooden cruise boat around noon. After a refreshing welcome drink we show you our on-board facilities and your cosy cabin. As lunch is served, the boat starts cruising. Sit back and watch the fantastic scenery and the daily life of the Mekong people.
In the afternoon you can disembark for a guided leisurely stroll through the village and the surrounding fruit orchards or rice fields. Meet the friendly locals and taste the local produce and fruits.
Get back on board for fantastic photo opportunities along the river. Enjoy a drink at the bar or relax on deck as the sun sets over the magnificent water landscape. The boat will anchor for the night. The day ends with a delicious on-board dinner.
Day 2: Floating market and travel to Phu Quoc
Wake up well rested to the sound of the River and get ready for another exciting day of sightseeing. At 6.30h the vessel sets off for a sunrise cruise.
After breakfast, we will board a sampan boat to Cai Rang floating market, one of the region’s busiest and most lively markets. Marvel at the sheer abundance of exotic fruits, vegetables and skilfully handcrafted regional products. We will pull up to the boats for talking and bargaining with the merchants.
Directly after visiting the floating market a car takes you to the waterfront town of Rach Gia and to the pier for the ferry to the holiday paradise of Phu Quoc. Alternatively you can return on the boat for a sumptious brunch before we bring we to Can Tho airport for your flight to Phu Quoc.
The tour ends here. We will be happy to help you book a resort on the island and organize your trip back to Saigon.
