Mekong Cruise On Bassac Tour 2 Days/1 Night

$170- $200
Mekong Delta

TransMékong is a family company established in 2003 in Can Tho, in the heart of the Mekong delta, by a Franco-Vietnamese couple. We both had a few years' prior experience managing projects and SMEs and the urge to escape from it all.

Our team is locally recruited and trained, and we learn from the newcomers as much as from the experience we build together. We foster personal development in a happy team, and many on board took part themselves in the construction of the boats.

We originally bought the hull of an existing rice barge, stripped it bare and built Bassac I, with which we learned much about what building and running a cruise boat entails. Since then we designed ourselves and built Bassac II and III and the Mystic sampans according to the same tradition.

The Bassac pioneered cruises in comfort in the Mekong delta, and we strive to deserve remaining the reference on the region.
