Welcome to Mango Cruises, providing memorable private cruising experiences in Vietnam’s picturesque Mekong Delta. We combine high quality private sampans, in-depth local knowledge/experience, and dedicated staff & crew to give you a cruise you will never forget, along river routes that remain untouched by commercial tourism
We are thrilled to announce that Mango Cruises has been published in the latest edition of the Lonely Planet travel guide! We are also very thankful to be recognized as a “Top Choice” and we are very grateful for their online write-up, here
The Lonely Planet travel guide is perhaps the most important item a wayward traveller needs as they leave home, and their recognition of Mango Cruises touring less-visited areas is likely the best two-word description of our services.
Upon arrival, you will board your Mango cruise boat at Chuong Duong Pier and head to An Hoa River. Enjoy your welcome drink and peaceful scenery while crew members board your luggage. The cruise will take you to Phong Nam village in Giong Trom, where you will take a rowing sampan boat through the small canals, which are covered green by the water coconut plants.
Stop at a local house to taste the tropical fruits and chat with the farmer. Visit the rice noodle factory before starting your bike trip around the village. Relax and enjoy lunch at Mango Restaurant before getting back on the boat and continuing to cruise to Mo Cay canals. Stop for a visit at the coconut processing workshop where you can see how the locals utilize every bit of the coconut.
Continue cruising to Vung Liem province and stop for a visit at the brick making factory. Here you will see how bricks are made using traditional methods, which are centuries old. Return to your boat and freshen up for your cooking demonstration and dinner on board. The rest of the evening will be spent at your leisure.
Overnight will be spent onboard in Vung Liem town.
In the morning, breakfast will be served on board before starting to explore the town of Vung Liem by bicycle. Visit the Happy Buddha Temple, a beautiful and characteristic Kh’mer Temple of this small town.
After that continue on to visit the Cao Dai Temple in one of the most popular local religions, which is a combination of Taoism, Buddhism and Confusium.
The boat will then cruise to Tra On where we will stop for the night. While on board, freshen up, and then head to the deck where you will have a cooking demonstration before enjoying a delicious, 5-course dinner onboard. The rest of the evening is spent at your leisure.
Get up early in the morning to visit Tra On floating market before heading to Can Tho. Stop at the spectacular Cai Rang floating market, where you will transfer to a smaller boat and mingle amongst the thousands of trading vessels. Feel free to buy yourself fruits or drinks from the local boats.
After your market visit, return to your Mango Cruise, and soak in your surroundings, before being dropped off at Ninh Kieu quay in Can Tho, and preparing for your onward trip.
Prices are in USD, per person.
