About Bassac Cruise

The Bassac Cruise - Immerse yourself in the Mekong Delta's distinct culture

The Bassac offers short-to medium-length exploration excursions on the charming Mekong. This boat was constructed and designed with an exquisite style, based on the classic look of traditional rice boats, and can comfortably seat up to 24 people.

Bassac Boat primarily provides tours (SIC available) on the Mekong Delta's most famous and crowded sections, Mang Thit and Co Chien Rivers. The cruise will take you to the most typical floating market, Cai Be market, where you can appreciate the scene, sound, and fragrance. This is a fantastic chance to immerse yourself in the distinct culture of the Mekong civilization using all of your senses.

The food was of high quality.

If your flight at 16h40 for domestic you can get on-time for cruise, if for international i am afraid not. You can be at airport about 14:00 - 15:00 PM depend on route.
