Song Xanh Sampan – A unique authentic private Sampan!
Song Xanh Sampans are designed for travelers who are looking for Private Cruise experiences in the Mekong Delta. Five very unique and authentic Sampans are fully equipped with beautiful bamboo and rattan furniture to create a very charming atmosphere. Operated as private charter cruises for individuals, couples and families with children, each sampan will carry a charming rowing boat (“Xuong”), nicely designed for a deep exploration of the delta through numerous small canals and arroyos along the journey.
Your journey starts from Phu An Jetty at 10h00am. Begin with a bicycle ride around this remote countryside area, ending up at Le Longanier Restaurant.
Lunch is served in this exquisite colonial-style villa set in a lush tropical garden by the river. After lunch, start your leisurely cruise on the Delta’s beautiful waterways, with stops along the way to explore local cottage industries that provide a living for the river people. Before arriving at Sa Dec, visit a traditional brick factory where everything is made by hand. Arriving at Sa Dec, step ashore and stroll to the outdoor market. Visit the historic house of the real-life character in the acclaimed novel and film “The Lover” by Marguerite Duras. A candlelit dinner awaits at this dramatic house. Enjoy your first night on board the Song Xanh on the Mekong River.
Breakfast is served on board while you cruise towards Long Xuyen along a narrow canal, passing several scenic monkey bridges. After enjoying lunch on board, arrive in Long Xuyen to visit Tiger Island, birthplace of Vietnam’s second president.
