Saigon - Phu Quoc Cruise by Mekong Eyes Cruise 3 Days/2 Nights


Mekong Eyes Cruise

The Mekong Eyes River Cruiser

Explore the vastness of the Mekong Delta on board the comfortable Mekong Eyes vessel!

 

Cruise boat design

The Mekong Eyes combines regional boat-building traditions with modern comforts to become the perfect holiday vessel to cruise the Mekong Delta in style. At 39 m long and 8.5 m wide, the Mekong Eyes river cruiser was built out of an old, traditional rice barge with the finest quality wood, and artfully decorated by skilled craftsmen of the Mekong Delta.

Why Mekong Eyes? – One of the traditional ceremonies performed on a newly constructed Mekong boat is the “eye opening”. The eyes are painted on the bow for good luck, a wide-awake crew and fast and safe journeys.
