Bassac Boat

The Bassac I and Bassac II boats are built entirely of wood and are made up six cabins with traditional decor. The boats offer excellent overnight journeys through Southern Vietnam's bewitching Mekong Delta region in both comfort and style.

The Mekong Delta, Vietnam
Bassac Boat
  • One or two night cruises in the Mekong Delta

  • Beautifully crafted traditional wooden boats

  • Air-conditioning and private bathrooms on board

  • Communal atmosphere and interaction with other guests

The beautifully crafted Bassac boats offer various journeys of one or two night cruises, beginning a couple of hours drive from Saigon. This is by far the best way to see this fascinating and inaccessible region of Southern Vietnam's Mekong Delta. The boat trip offers the opportunity to enjoy the stunning scenery through the Cho Gao canal, board a smaller rowing boat to get closer to local villages, and maybe the highlight, experience the floating markets of Cai Be.

The twin cabins on both boats are elegantly designed with air-conditioning and a private bathroom with hot water shower. There is a lovely sunbathing area and good restaurant on the main deck where should you so wish, you can dine on the delicious fresh cuisine under the stars. With only 12-24 guests, the service is incredibly personal and the friendly and welcoming crew can not only make your journey more enjoyable by sharing their extensive knowledge of the region with you, but by producing fabulous food and seamless service throughout your time on board.

The Bassac I and II are also available for private charter.
