The first impression would be the boat’s special designation, from the top bamboo toile-made-ceiling to the wooden floor, which places you in a Queen life. Using only the finest materials and traditional secrets, which comply with the high standards of government approval on vessel, the Mekong Queen has pride in ability to keep price levels down way below the other competitors in Cai Be, while having the highest workmanship.

Relaxing and soothing are how you describe about the feeling when sunbathing on the Mekong Queen’s sun desk. Life couldn’t be much enjoyable than sitting on board, looking around through the floating market and shooting along the river.

Featuring five different excursions, the Mekong Queen services will surely take you beyond Delta’s stunning sites and charming people. It is possible to take tours on small boats into the more remote rivers for getting through local villages in comfort. It is also possible to cycle around the rude road through local lives and along the river when you get off on board.
