We had a lovely time on the Sampan. The cruise was excellent.

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.
