Full Itinerary

Nha Man - Sa Dec - Long Xuyen - Chau Doc
Be picked up at 7:30 am at No 157 Pasteur, D3 in Saigon and drive to Nha Man, home to a local temple and apothecary to learn about traditional medicines. Walk a few meters, board your Song Xanh sampan and set off for a leisure cruise on the busy waterways. Welcome drinks are served.

Arrive in Sa Dec and get ashore to visit the Buddhist Nuns Monastery of Phuoc Hue, a wonderfully peaceful provincial monastery where young girls learn the teachings of Buddhism.

After a stroll around the flower gardens (Sa Dec is famous for its flower nursery gardens), get back on board where Vietnamese lunch is served. Turn into a narrow canal to discover unspoiled landscapes, luxuriant gardens, children on bicycles… the daily

life of the river people. Stop half-way along the canal to visit a small local village. Meet the villagers and get a glimpse of their

daily life.

Disembark at Vam Cong Jetty in Long Xuyen. A 1h30 drive will take you through the countryside to the country town of Chau Doc. You can stop either at Victoria Chau Doc Hotel on the bank of the Bassac River or at Victoria Nui Sam Lodge, a charming mountain retreat nestled on Sam Mountain.

we were so impressed by our Sampan tour - we loved every minute of it - it was fabulous in everyway. Mr Em (our guide), Captain Lin & Aein & Phuc were wonderful - they all made our trip so memorable.

We had a lovely time on the Sampan. The cruise was excellent. The only aspect that was disappointing was that the boat was very late to get going in the morning which meant that we only caught the end of the floating markets. The food was excellent. The cabin was good although the mosquito nets could… More

We enjoyed the activities but would have enjoyed an opportunity to try rowing the small boat in the afternoon.

We were a little uncertain as to whether there was an expectation of a substantial tip for the crew. We did tip a modest amount but felt that given the price of the cruise, we shouldn’t have… More

Very nice boat, feels like a unique experience. Fantastic in family and the best to see how the people on the Mekong live.

The food on board was not very good. Extremely poor breakfast (sausages not cooked, only white bread and no choice). The diner in the old house was really not great either and the women does not speak English.
