Saigon - Phnom Penh 4 days on Pandaw Cruise or vv


 


Pandaw Cruise has six luxury river cruise ships in operation that we built ourselves. Each ship, hand finished in brass and teak by traditional craftsmen are in themselves objects of great beauty. The secret of our success is that on Pandaw Cruise, whilst luxury and comfort are discreetly present, it is the colonial character and friendly atmosphere that predominate. All Pandaw Cruises have ultra shallow drafts and can travel to remote areas unreachable by other vessels, let alone overland. Hereunder is the fact sheet of the 3 Pandaw ships for Mekong river Cruise:

Pandaw Cruise is the largest luxury river cruise company in Asia with six luxury ships exploring five countries. Whilst we offer a real adventure experience, travelers are cushioned with incredible comfort, fine dining, great cocktails and choice wines, not to mention extraordinary levels of service. All Pandaw Cruises were newly built and designed and finished as replicas of colonial river steamers. These small Cruises have the highest space to passenger ratio of any ships afloat - our much loved staterooms are 170 square feet and finished in teak and brass.


Itinerary:

Day 1: Saigon - My Tho - Cai Be

(D)

Transfer from the Hotel to the port of My Tho by coach to embark Pandaw Cruise. My Tho is the hub of the Delta. This is a busy commercial port and currently our ships are wedged between the Foster's Brewery and a timber yard - certainly giving an industrial flavor to this economically active area. We will the cruise to Cai Be. Cai Be has a splendid church built in the French Gothic manner. There is a busy floating market here most mornings. The city itself, like all Vietnamese cities is clean and well organised and easy to walk around.

Day 2: Cai Be - Sa Dec - Cu Lao Gien

(B/L/D)

In the morning passengers will take an exciting Sampan boat excursion to Sa Dec via Vinh Long, along canals and backwaters. Passengers will visit Cai Be and its colorful floating market and Sa De to see the local market and the ancient house of Mr Huyn Thuy Le, the 'lover' of Marguerite Duras, a famous french novelist. In the afternoon, we visit Cu Lao Gien island and a Catholic monastery called 'La Providence'. Cu Lao Gien became an important Catholic centre and had a mission, an orphanage, a school, a hospice and a leprosy centre that could treat 1,000 people. During the Japanese invasion in 1940's the monastery was abandoned and operations were not resumed again until 1977. Nowadays Cu Lao Gian serves as a retreat for retired nuns taken care of by novices.

Overnight on the Pandaw Cruise.

Day 3: Chau Doc - Border Crossing

(B/L/D)

Visit a Cham tribal village, a cat fish farm, and enjoy a trishaw ride round Chau Doc. The market at Chau Doc is excellent and well worth a wander through. The town is easy to walk around or you can choose to enjoy a cyclo ride. There is a rather groovy Catholic church with Jesus, the Virgin Mary and various saints happily transmogrified with Vietnamese physiognomies. The Victoria Hotel is a pleasant place for a drink in its river view bar which not only has a good billiard table but also wifi! Return to the Pandaw Cruise by boat for lunch and cast off for the Cambodian border for the usual formalities.

Overnight on the Pandaw Cruise.

Day 4: Phnom Penh

(B)

Sailing into Phnom Penh past the Royal Palace and bustling corniche is highlight to any Mekong voyage. We moor right in the city centre and you can walk virtually anywhere.
