Bassac Mekong Cruise

Bassac Mekong Cruise


The Bassac offers overnight cruises to discover the Mekong delta’s intense life on the river while enjoying all the comfort of the country’s last wooden boats. They take you into the greener areas of the Mekong Delta, overnight on the river, and into the middle of traditional river life. The boats are entirely built of wood in the Mekong Delta, according to the local building traditions, and adapted for discovery cruises, open to the nearby riverbanks and offering an immediate contact with the green surrounding of the ship.

Each journey leg includes three meals (L, D, B), one visit on the way and one at the destination, full-board accommodation as twin-share, and free drinking water, Vietnamese tea, and coffee. On every trip, Bassac offers passengers the chance to discover classic Vietnamese cuisine at noon, Mekong Delta specialties in the evening, and a delicious western meal for breakfast. The cruise offers meals cooked and baked fresh, including breakfast’s bread and fluffy pastries. As the Bassac ships boast their own galleys, they are very reactive to meet the needs and tastes of your passengers.

The Bassac runs the overnight route between Can Tho and Cai Be every day, each way, as seat in coach.

What We Love

  • Entirely built of wood according to the local marine traditions but  adapted for discovery cruises.
