Observe from the comfort of your sampan life as it plays out on the river banks - the people, the stunning landscapes - while your attentive crew serves you tea and seasonal fruit. We'll make stops along the way to provide photography opportunities of local cottage industries: coconut candy and puffed rice products that provide a living for the river people.

Your cruise ends at Le Longanier Restaurant where lunch will be served. An exquisite colonial-style villa set in a lush tropical garden by the river, surrounded by fruit trees, giving you a sense of life during Indochinese times.
