The Mekong Eyes combines regional boat-building traditions with modern comforts to become the perfect holiday vessel to cruise the Mekong in style.


Why Mekong Eyes? – One of the traditional ceremonies performed on a newly constructed Mekong boat is the “eye opening”. The eyes are painted on the bow for good luck, a wide-awake crew and fast and safe journeys.

It contains 15 lavishly furnished twin and double rooms and can accommodate up to 30 passengers. Each room has a private bathroom with shower and hot water, wardrobe, air-conditioning and fan. The rooms are well insulated against climate and sound, and all offer a phantastic panoramic view of the river.

There is a large dining room in lower deck, and a stylish upper-deck inside sitting lounge, an open sitting area and sun deck on the top.

Day 1: Panorama Cruise

We’ll pick you up at 8:00 in Ho Chi Minh City and take you to Cai Be. Board the Mekong Eyes at 12.30. Enjoy a welcome drink and get comfortable in your cabin with a great view through the panoramic windows. As lunch is served the Mekong Eyes starts cruising towards Cho Lach on the Tien Giang river. Watch the flow of daily life on the Mekong, the sand and rice barges, the locals building boats on the wooden yards and drying tropical fruits.

The boat heads to Cai Nhum, a little town on the banks of the river Mang Thit. Disembark for a pleasant walk through the village life and the surrounding fruit orchards and rice fields.
 
Back on board, enjoy a drink at the bar or take a rest on the deck as the sun sets over the vast water landscape of the Delta. We continue to Tra On where the boat will anchor for the night. The day ends with a delicious on-board dinner.
 

Day 2: Life on the water in Cai Be floating Market

Wake up well rested for another wonderful day of sightseeing. At 06.30 we set off for a sunrise cruise and an early breakfast.

After breakfast we will board sampan boats to visit Cai Rang floating market, one of the most lively floating markets of the Delta, with wonderful photo opportunities. Witness the fascinating scenes, the hustle and bustle of vendors and small boats laden with fruits. We will pull up to the merchants for talking and bargaining. Boat through the green water landscape to see local houses, verdant orchards and ship-building yards.
