Private 3-Day Cruise
Song Xanh Sampans
Chau Doc - Cai Be
Valid until 30 Sep 2023
CHAU DOC – LONG XUYEN
Your crew welcomes you at the Victoria Chau Doc Hotel jetty at 10:00 am with cold towels and a refreshing drink as your Song Xanh private sampan sets off for its leisurely cruise on the waterways around Chau Doc towards Long Xuyen, traveling along a narrow canal past monkey bridges and peaceful villages.
Lunch is served on board before arriving in Long Xuyen. Visit Tiger Island (Cu Lao Ong Ho), a small island that was once the home of Vietnam’s second president- Ton Duc Thang. Take a stroll around the park surrounding the museum.
Dinner is served onboard. Enjoy your first night on board the Song Xanh on the Hau River.
LONG XUYEN – SA DEC
Breakfast is served on board at 7:00 am while your sampan cruises downstream. Arrive in Sa Dec in time for a stroll around this charming town. Visit the Kien An Cung, ancient Chinese architecture has played an important part in the Chinese community in Dong Thap for nearly a hundred years. The small town is well worth exploring as it played an important role in the development of the Mekong Delta. Large Chinese and Khmer communities were established here, while the French also left their mark on the local architecture. As a result, many religions are represented side by side: a Cao Dai temple, a Cathclic church, a Chinese temple and Vietnamese pagodas.
Lunch and dinner are served on board. Enjoy your second night aboard the Song Xanh on the Mekong River.
SA DEC – CAI BE
We begin cruising at 6:00 am towards Cai Be. Observe life as it plays out on shore – people going about their daily activities against picturesque landscapes – while your crew serves breakfast onboard. Stop at various points along the way for a look into some of the cottage industries of the region: a brick factory and local food production like coconut candy and puffed rice (the local equivalent of popcorn), small home-based businesses that provide a living for the river people.
Your cruise ends at Le Longanier Restaurant. Lunch is served in this exquisite colonial-style villa set in a lush tropical garden by the river, surrounded by fruit plantations, a glimpse into the Indochina of yesteryear.
