OVERVIEW


The most beautiful option to travel from Cambodia to Southern Vietnam — or vice versa — is to take the various waterways and therefore the traditional transport routes, where travelers can watch the hustle and bustle on the rivers and canals. The new Mekong Eyes Explorer is perfect for your individual river cruise (from 1 to 3 nights) on the northern route of the Mekong connecting Southern Vietnam with Phnom Penh.
Our new boutique cruiser is designed to roam through the narrow and winding rivers and canals of the river system that cannot be accessed by the larger cruise boats. That way we can show you the hidden gems of the northern Mekong Delta.
Bar, Lounge, and Restaurant:
Recall your personal impressions of the day and meet fellow travelers to share your experiences while having some cool drinks at our bar — the perfect place to round off the day! Enjoy a cup of tea or a sundowner in the outdoor lounge, our bar area above the bridge, and enjoy the spectacular views over the mighty Mekong.

ITINERARY


Apart from classic destinations such as Can Tho, Cai Be, and Chau Doc there are also spectacular and less frequented places located along the route: the idyllic colonial town Sa Dec (known from the novel L’Amant), the bird paradise Tram Chim National Park of Cao Lanh; ((close to Cao Lanh is the legendary secret command center of Xeo Quyt — a small Cu Chi in the middle of the Mekong Delta which can be explored with small boats and is reminiscent of the movie Apocalypse Now)). An insiders’ tip is Cu Lao Gieng, a Mekong island with a powerful old colonial monastery complex surrounded by orchards and chili fields. Our tour ends in Tan Chau, which is the place where our speedboats are stationed for the transfer to Phnom Penh and which is famous for its traditional silk production.
