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. The staff was ever-attentive, personable and efficient, the boat has a lovely casual, attractive ambience with a large covered sun deck, numerous lawn chairs conducive to relaxation, the cabins are spacious and comfortable, the cuisine is excellent, and the shore excursions fascinating. We highly recommend both this company... read more

Chau Doc Description:
Perched on the banks of the Bassac River, Chau Doc is a pleasant town near the Cambodian border with sizable Chinese, Cham and Khmer communities. Its cultural diversity – apparent in the mosques, temples, churches and nearby pilgrimage sites – makes it a fascinating place to explore even if you aren’t headed to Cambodia. Taking a boat trip to the Cham communities across the river is another highlight, though its addictive market and peaceful waterfront make fine backdrops to a few days of relaxing before heading out.
One of the very beautiful place of the Mekong Delta - Chau doc, as close as you can get to Cambodia without being in it. The Bassac River flows through the town and is a border crossing for river borne traffic, and the small Sam Mountain has an excellent view of the flat plain on the other side. It’s an attractive, busy place with a good hotel and several interesting attractions.
It became part of Vietnam in the middle of the 18th century as a gift, a reward for helping the Cambodian monarch to put down an insurrection. Unsurprisingly, it has a high proportion of ethnic Kh’mer people among the population here, easily identifiable by their darker skins and a chequered scarf instead of Vietnam’s ubiquitous conical hat. There’s also a fair number of ethic Cham and Chinese people, and enough Christians to fill a local cathedral, making up a rare pot-pourri of cultures and religions.
Further along the riverfront there are several traditional stilt houses.
A short boat trip across the Bassac takes you to several floating fish farms and villages. They’re modified house-boats - a trap-door in the floor provides access to nets under the boat where the fish are grown. A little further takes you to the other bank and a Cham community. Once you’ve tip-toed across the stepping stones to avoid the mud, you walk through the stilt house village to the mosque.
Although sharing the same linguistic and historical tradition, the Cham are divided into two quite distinct religious communities, the Hindu Chams and the Cham Bani, or Muslims. The latter live mainly in the Chau Doc region and are easily distinguished by the men's preferred headgear - a crimson fez with a long golden tassel, or white Muslim prayer cap.
