Taking the various waterways – the traditional transport routes of the Mekong Delta River should be the most stunning way to observe the hustle and bustle on the rivers and canals to feel Can Tho and the Mekong Delta at their fullest charm.
A harmonious mix of modern boutique style and comfort with the traditional local materials and design patterns, Mekong Eyes Cruise will take you to the hidden gems of the Northern Mekong Delta that the larger ones cannot reach. In addition to admiring the mesmerizing sceneries from the luxury boat and exploring the vibrant life of the local inhabitants in the Mekong Delta, you are also free to combine your relaxing river cruise with a bike tour to explore the off-the-beaten-path life or do a side trip with sampan to get a unique perspective on the water life and the gorgeous scenery.
Where will Mekong Eyes bring you to?
Situated on Cai Rang River, Cai Rang Floating Market is not only the region’s largest wholesale floating market, the most bustling and busiest floating market and the place where people come to exchange and trade agricultural products, fruits, goods, food but also one of the well-preserved characteristic cultural features of the Mekong River region.

What make Bassac Cruise different from Mekong Eyes?
Bassace Cruise makes itself different from Mekong Eyes by taking you to Tra On floating market. Consisting of two main areas: one stretching along riversides and another floating on the river, Tra On Floating Market is not only one of the longest-existing marketplaces in the cultural life of people Vinh Long but also the most typical cultural activity in the Southwestern region. Like other floating market, Tra On Floating Market, where all the exciting and bustling activities take place on the dock or on boats, begins a new day when most people are still on bed and come alive from 5-6 AM onwards. In spite of not being as busy as Cai Be, Cai Rang floating markets, the relaxed, small floating market of Tra On, outside the idyllic town at the mouth of a channel, is still a perfect spot for homeland and nationwide travelers to visit.
