RV Mekong Navigator Reviews

  • Thanks for the wonderful journey

    ...Our 7 day Mekong river cruise with Navigator was fantastic. A relaxing way to see parts of Vietnam and Cambodia. The crew couldn't do enough for you to make sure you were comfortable. We were lucky in that there were only 25 on our cruise, but I'm sure it would be just as pleasant if full. Our cabin had plenty of storage, including for cases. The shower was powerful. Water was supplied in the cabin and on trips. The food was varied and plentiful. Breakfast was a buffet, but other meals were served by the delightful waiters. Coffee etc was available on the sun deck all day. Everyday there was a different cocktail before dinner. There were two trips most days but it was up to you if you joined in. In Phnom Penh the local orphanage provide the evenings entertainment with singing and dancing... read more

  • 7 Nights on RV Mekong Navigator

    ...I had the incredible pleasure of 7 nights on RV Mekong Navigator cruise from Cambodia to Viet Nam. After this time with the crew they were more like great new friends than service staff. I looked forward to their smiles and eagerness to serve every morning (thank you, Mekong Navigator, for the early riser coffee and pastries, it was a wonderful way to start each day!) and at every meal. A warm welcome back to the boat every time we left for an excursion, with fragrant face cloths and a refreshing drink. Continuous checking and stocking of our cabin, and turndown service before bed. The boat was clean and very comfortable. The top deck is awesome. I've been on about 10 cruises and this was hands down one of the very best... read more

  • Explore Vietnam and Cambodia

    ... RV Mekong Navigator was fantastic. A relaxing way to see parts of Vietnam and Cambodia. The crew couldn't do enough for you to make sure you were comfortable. This cruise exceeded all of our expectations. We had taken several ocean and river cruises before, but were pleasantly surprised by the comfort and convenience of this boat.

We highly recommend both this company... read more

Cai Be Floating Market is one of the many well known floating markets in the western region of southern Vietnam was formed in the Nguyen Dynasty in the 19th century. The Cai Be Floating Market is always busy, bearing all the characteristics of the locals' life in the western region. All the goods are transported to the market by rafts and boats. Rafts and boats are anchored along the two sides of the river for kilometres. From the floating market, goods are shifted for selling at inland markets or small boats take them for delivery along canals in the Plain of Reeds. On each boat, goods are hung on poles that are called dialectically "cay beo".  The merchandise sold in each boat is hung on a pole in front of the boat to attract customers. Hundreds of such poles point towards the sky. Boats also operate like "taxis", very convenient for tourists around the region.
Cai Be Floating Market is held where the Tien Giang River forms the border between the provinces of Tien Giang, Vinh Long, and Ben Tre. It takes about one hour to reach the market from the town of Vinh Long Province. Approximately 400 to 500 boats filled with fruits, vegetables, and other products are anchored along the banks of the river, from 5 am to 5 pm every day.
The merchandise sold in each boat is hung on a pole in front of the boat to attract customers.
From three 3 am in the early morning, rafts and boats are crowded because Cai Be is one of the biggest wholesale markets in the region. Traders live on the river and some link their lives with boats like their mobile house for generations. Cai Be seems to be an inseparable part of their daily lives.
Along the criss crossing canals, people in the Plain of Reeds take not only goods of each countryside to the Cai Be Floating Market but also their unique cultural characteristics, creating such a beautiful river painting.
