3 days for the most worthy experience with Bassac Boat . The cruise line begins from Can Tho and ends in Cai Be. Stay on boat and admire the daily life of waterways area. If Cai Be is prosperous by the colorful tropical gardens, Can Tho is boiling with the largest floating market of Cai Rang. And Chau Doc is authentic and rural with floating villages and Cham minority. Let’s follow the Bassac Boat in 3 days to explore the real spirit of Mekong Vietnam.

The Bassac offer short-to-medium-range discovery cruises in charming, authentic river cabin cruisers.

All three Bassac are built of wood according to the tradition of the rice barges of the Mekong delta, with amendments where safety standards require.

Bassac I actually once was a rice barge, which we bought and overhauled into the cozy cabin cruiser it is today, and although Bassac II and III are entirely new hull designs, more adapted to their present purpose, they were built with the same craftsmanship and according to the same tradition.
