We spent a night on the Bassac and loved it! The meals were well prepared, staff attentive and the cabins very clean and comfortable. May I suggest you wake up for the sunrise as it was the most beautiful and peaceful part of the day.

Dear Naturewatch Thank you for your comment and appreciation. Yes, the Mekong offers a different experience from Halong Bay, and in some respect could be seen as complemetary. Different scenery, longer stretches along rivers and canals, a visit in the afternoon to an undisturbed village....More
