Since early 2004, Mekong Horizon Co., Ltd. has been a pioneer in offering new cruise paths together with high quality cruise standards.

Having our head quarters based in Phu An/Cai Lay (next to Cai Be, Tien Giang Province), we operate cruises and related tours services in the Mekong Delta using our own built sampans, all stylishly designed and inspired by ancient authentic traditional Indochinese river boats.

Since June 2006, we also operate our own-built restaurant named "Le Longanier", a beautiful Indochinese two storeys villa with authentic architecture and style.
Today, with a flottilla of 10 boats and employing more than 50 staffs (boats + restaurant), Mekong Horizon Co., Ltd. is recognised among the Vietnam based Travel Agents community as one of the leading private Cruise-Operator in the delta.

Day 1: Panorama Cruise

At 7:00 we’ll pick you up in Ho Chi Minh City and take you to Can Tho. Board the Mekong Eyes at 12.30 at our private pier. We will show you our on-board facilities and your cosy cabin. Enjoy a refreshing welcome drink. As lunch is served, the boat starts cruising downstream on the Hau river. Sit back and watch the daily life of the Mekong people.

The boat heads to Tra On floating market, then up the Nikolai canal to Cai Nhum, a little town on the banks of the river Mang Thit. Disembark for a leisurely stroll through the village and the surrounding fruit orchards or rice fields. Meet the friendly locals.

Get back on board and enjoy a drink at the bar or relax on the deck as the sun sets over the magnificent water landscape. The boat will anchor for the night, about 2 hours away from Cai Be. The day ends with a delicious on-board dinner.

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

Wake up to the sound of the River and get ready for another exciting day of sightseeing. At 06.30 we set off for a sunrise cruise through Cho Lach canal, teeming with sand and rice barges. Watch the locals go about their daily work drying exotic fruits and building ships on the wooden yards.

After breakfast, we will have a sampan boat tour of Cai Be floating market, one of the region’s busiest markets. Marvel at the sheer abundance of exotic fruits, vegetables and skilfully handicrafted regional products. We will pull up to the boats for talking and bargaining with the merchants. We will also visit some of the local candy and cake making factories.

The boat trip ends at around 11.00 - 11.30 on the pier in Cai Be. We’ll take you back to Ho Chi Minh City.
