Bassac Boat, Saigon

Cruising the Mekong

A beautifully crafted wooden boat, the R/V Bassac offers comfortable twin cabins with en suite bathrooms, a sun deck and a superb restaurant with bar.

As you cruise through the heart of this unique area in comfort and style, you will have the opportunity to head off to explore on smaller boats and stop to walk around local villages and cottage industries.

Back on the Bassac, you dine under the stars as the boat cruises leisurely through the Delta. After breakfast the following day, you will be taken off to explore the floating markets that form the character and lifeblood of the region.

Without doubt this is one of the best ways to explore the fascinating Mekong Delta region of Southern Vietnam.
