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

    ... 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.

We highly recommend both this company... read more

Ho Chi Minh Description:
Ho Chi Minh City or Saigon, situated in the southern part of Vietnam, is still called Saigon by most of the natives. This modern city used to be considered as the Pearl of the Orient by the French. The wide Saigon River, which takes a huge turn from the east of Saigon, links the city with the sea. Saigon is the city with its essential French colonial character has enough to draw your attention. The city's colonial villas, wide avenues and a lively cafe society remind you the days of French dominance.
Saigon is the second largest city in Vietnam and its economic center. Swarms--literally--of bicycles, motorbikes, Pedi-cabs (called ‘cyclos’ in Vietnam) and other vehicles move in vast waves as if in a prearranged ballet of motion, constant animation and seeming chaos. Originally founded by the French in 1863, its now well worn French colonial veneer hints at times past while throbbing to rhythms and beats of the modern era. If only for a day, Saigon is a must see city for any visit to Vietnam.
Originally established as a Khmer trading post, more than 300 years ago, Ho Chi Minh City was destined for greater things. By the 18th century, the city, then named Saigon, had become the provincial capital of the Nguyen Dynasty. However, in the second half of the 19th century, control over the city passed to the French, and Saigon became the capital of French Cochinchina. This was a period of much infrastructural and architectural development, during which Saigon earned the epithet, “Paris of the Orient.” Many buildings of this era are in good condition even today. In 1954, the city was proclaimed the capital of South Vietnam. The ensuing war with the US lasted until 1975, when North Vietnam took over Saigon and renamed it Ho Chi Minh City.
Today,  the city is rapidly becoming the hub of manufacturing, entertainment, and cuisine in Vietnam. Upscale restaurants and cafe  offering a range of international delicacies are opening every day, while bars, clubs, and discos are at the center of a thriving nightlife. Attracting many tourists, the area is home to historical buildings and museums, sophisticated shops, and roadside cafes, as well as people of all ages zipping around noisily on motorbikes that often cause gridlock on the streets.
The most prominent area in the city is around Dong Khoi Street in District 1, boasting fashionable shops, museums, and fine dining. It also features examples of French-colonial structures, such as the Municipal Theater, Notre Dame Cathedral, and the General Post Office. To the north are sprawling residential areas and the historic Jade Emperor Pagoda, known for its exquisite architecture and ornate carvings. To the west lies Cho Lon or China Town, home to the ethnic Chinese or Hoa this is the best place to find herbs, traditional Chinese medicines, and the other goods, as well as some of the city's most ancient pagodas.
