Welcome aboard the Mekong Eyes!
Treat yourself to something exceptional – a memorable trip on the waterways of the vast Mekong Delta! The Mekong Eyes is the perfect holiday vessel to cruise the Mekong in style. Once a typical rice barge, it now offers beautifully decorated cabins and a stylish lounge area. While you are basking on the sun deck our friendly staff will pamper you with cool drinks and freshly cooked delicacies.
Forget strenuous day-trips: The Mekong Eyes is the first choice in on-board accommodation on the Mekong. You wake up well rested in the morning and have plenty of time for extensive and authentic holiday impressions.
Glide through the lush green jungle and enjoy the rich diversity of vegetation and landscape. Get up close to the vivacious every-day life on the river: the rice harvest on the verdant fields, river families living on boats, children splashing in the water. Merchant boats will offer you an abundance of fresh fruits, and the floating markets will take your breath away with their teeming life, razzle-dazzle of aromas and orchestra of sounds.
Relax and enjoy
Take an afternoon swim. Stroll along one of the secluded canals and discover an exotic world of its own. As the dark falls, enjoy a high-class dinner at our restaurant before retiring to the comfort of your cabin. Close your eyes and fall asleep to the gentle lapping of the waves.
The Mekong Eyes combines regional boat-building traditions with modern comforts to become the perfect holiday vessel to cruise the Mekong in style.
At 39m long and 8.5m wide, the Mekong Eyes river cruiser was built out of an old, traditional rice barge with the finest quality wood, and artfully decorated by skilled craftsmen of the Mekong Delta.
Why Mekong Eyes? – One of the traditional ceremonies performed on a newly constructed Mekong boat is the “eye opening”. The eyes are painted on the bow for good luck, a wide-awake crew and fast and safe journeys.
It contains 15 lavishly furnished twin and double rooms and can accommodate up to 30 passengers. Each room has a private bathroom with shower and hot water, wardrobe, air-conditioning and fan. The rooms are well insulated against climate and sound, and all offer a phantastic panoramic view of the river.
There is a large dining room in lower deck, and a stylish upper-deck inside sitting lounge, an open sitting area and sun deck on the top.
