Everything starts by discovering the "mekong melody" ..... we are totally disconnected from the modern world! 3 magical days in a setting so different from the standards of the hotel industry. All in wood, this boat charms us completely. The crew can not do enough for us. Our perfectly French speaking guide is very kind and cultured ....! We were fortunate to benefit from the boat for both of us because the 2nd cabin was not occupied !! A real pleasure for us to go for bike rides, market visits, caramel factory, brickyard, etc .... The only dark spot was the 2nd night the boat stayed in the middle of the mekong with the engines on to conserve electricity for air conditioning and refrigerators. .... impossible to sleep because of the noise !! It's really a shame to ruin this beautiful experience. I recommend this experience but make sure with the cruise line that the silence will be at the RV at night. .....
