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 a village and the surrounding fruit orchards or rice fields. Meet the friendly locals and taste the local produce and fruits.
Get back on board and enjoy a drink at the bar or relax on deck as the sun sets over the magnificent water landscape of the Mekong River. The boat will anchor for the night. The day ends with a delicious on-board dinner. You stay overnight on board your floating hotel in the Mekong Delta.
Meals: L, D
Accommodation: Mekong Eyes Cruise
- Day 2: Life on the water and floating markets
Wake up well rested to the sound of the Mekong river and get ready for another exciting day of sightseeing in the Mekong Delta. At 6.30h the cruise vessel sets off for a sunrise cruise. Watch the locals go about their daily work drying exotic fruits and building ships on the wooden yards while enjoying an early breakfast.
After breakfast, we will board a sampan boat to Cai Be or Cai Rang floating market, 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. We will also visit some of the local candy and cake making factories or boat through the green water landscape to see local houses, verdant orchards and ship-building yards.
The floating markets in the Mekong Delta are no tourist markets but wholesale markets where produce of the Mekong Delta like fruits and vegetables are traded. For this reason the number of boats on the market fluctuates depending on harvesting seasons and market demand. Furthermore, modern wholesale markets are becoming more popular in Vietnam. This can result in decreasing numbers of boats being present on the markets.
Disembark the boat at around 11.00 — 11.30h on the pier and enjoy lunch at a local restaurant. Sit back in the shuttle (bus or car) and watch the water landscape from a land perspective until you reach Chau Doc where we bring you to your hotel. Depending on your budget you can choose the famous colonial-style Victoria hotel (superior room) or a family managed local 2-star hotel.
Meals: B, L
- Day 3: Across the border towards Cambodia
We transfer you to the pier where you embark the speed boat for an exciting ride to Phnom Penh, your starting point for discovering Cambodia and the famous temples of Angkor Wat.
The trip ends here. Please contact us if we can help you organise your tour to Angkor or any further trips. Of course we will also be happy to arrange your transfer back to Saigon.

We travelled to the Mekong Delta and found the tour very informative and enjoyable. The boat trips as well as the horse cart rides were great. Our visit to the coconut candy factory was delightful . Rocky, our tour guide had a good command of the English language and was well informed. I would recommend this tour if you are in the area.

I enjoyed the excursion to the Mekong Delta. She is very informative. On different islands in the delta, this excursion introduces the crafts and everyday life of the Vietnamese people. The price includes a rich lunch of many national dishes. It will not be boring.

We took the 3 day cruise, a combination of 1 night in the Mekong Eyes, one night in the Victoria hotel (Chao Duc) plus speed boat to Phnom Penh. Pickup at the hotel was right on time and we drove more than 3 hours to the boat; ride was pleasant with a short stop in a lovely place. Lunch was waiting for us when we arrived. Food was abundant and very good. I don't eat fish/seafood and they quickly accommodated. If you think the cruise will take you through a lot of river market towns, you will be disappointed, the only market we visited was fairly small as they are disappearing (or so we were told). However, the service and coordination of this tour makes up for that. We were warmly received and looked after. The boat is very comfortable and cozy (only 14 cabins) with a lot of guest interaction. Overall it was a fantastic and relaxed way to go from Ho Chi Minh to Phnom Penh if you level set your expectation regarding sights (and you don't need to get there fast). For us, it was a marvellous experience
