  Trip Description
Pandaw is the largest luxury river cruise company in Indochina. Whilst we offer a real adventure experience, travellers are cushioned with incredible comfort, fine dining, great cocktails and choice wines, not to mention extraordinary levels of service. Pandaw ships were built new and designed and finished as replicas of colonial river steamers. These small ships 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.
  Trip Detail

Mekong Sub-region - www.luxuryprivatetravel.comDay 01: Saigon to My Tho

Registration is at 0830 at the Hotel Sofitel Plaza Saigon and transfer at 0900 to the Delta Port of My Tho by coach arriving at 1100 for check in followed by port and immigration formalities.  My Tho is the hub of the Delta, but not of great cultural interest, so once on board we set sail at 1300 and have lunch. In the afternoon we moor near Cai Be and make a fascinating trip by traditional junk to explore evergreen islands and at the former Imperial residence, the An Kiet House. Surviving members of the Kiet family will welcome us with tea and we can wander in the fruit orchards around the house. Overnight moor mid-stream Cai Be.

 

Day 02: Cai Be – Vinh Long - Sadec - Culao Gien - Chau DocPandaw - www.luxuryprivatetravel.com

Half day cruise excursion on board traditional sampan boats to Sad Dec via Vinh Long, along small canals and back waters.We begin by visiting Cai Be and its colorful floating market which takes place daily in front of the catholic church.    A further stop on the river bank then allows us to see local factories where rice pasta, coconut candies and other specialities are traditionally made.  Also visit a Mandarins house dating from late 19th century. Cruise further by Sampan to Dong Hoa Hiep islet to explore the rural life and the daily activities of the delta inhabitants seeing palm tree leave weaving, traditional wooden boat factories and fruit orchard plantations. Back on board your sampan, we will cruise up the Tien River where we see water hyacinths, an important Mekong delta product used for furniture and baskets and then visit a traditional brick and tile factory. 

Sa Dec will then appear like a little “Venice” with its numerous narrow canals and various kinds of tradPandaw Cruise - www.luxuryprivatetravel.comitional activities on the banks. You will disembark at the local market for a visit, then proceed to the splendid ancient house of Mr. Huyn Thuy Le, the “lover” of Marguerite Duras, famous French novelist and inspiration for the film L'Amant-The Lover directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud .

After lunch on board the Pandaw, cast off for Chau Doc.  En route visit Cu Lao Gien island and a Catholic monastery called “La Providence” built in 1875 by the French nuns of “Saint Paul de Chartres”.  Cu Lao Gien became an important Catholic centre with mission, an orphanage, school, hospice and leprosy centre that can treat 1,000 people. During the Japanese invasion the monastery was abandoned; operations were resumed after 1945 until 1977. Nowadays Cu Lao Gian serves as a retreat for 180 retired nuns taken care of by novices.Pandaw Cruise - www.luxuryprivatetravel.com
