1-Night tours

Starting either from Cai Be or Can Tho, our two-day cruises provide deeper insight into life in the Mekong Delta. Stop in Sa Dec, a quaint town at the crossroads of several cultures - Vietnamese, Chinese, Khmer and French. Discover homes featuring turn-of-the-century architecture, a reminder of the Indochina of yesteryear as you explore this town which was the setting of Marguerite Duras’ novel and subsequent film, “The Lover”.
