Bassac cruise

Cruise company: Trans Mekong

Cruise type: Midrange, Sharing, 12 cabins

Destinations: Vietnam - Vietnam

The Bassac take you into the greener areas of the Mekong Delta, overnight on the river and into the middle of the life about the river. They are entirely built of wood in the Mekong delta and according to the local marine traditions, and adapted for discovery cruises, open to outside and offering an immediate contact with the green surrounding of the ship.

All three Bassac are built of wood according to the tradition of the rice barges of the Mekong delta, with amendments where safety standards require. Bassac I, which actually is a rice barge, is bought and overhauled into the cozy cabin cruiser it is today, and although Bassac II and III are entirely new hull designs, more adapted to their present purpose, they were built with the same craftsmanship and according to the same tradition.



The cabins feature soundproofed partitions and double glazing to protect the passengers' sleep from the noises of the river. These partitions are also heat insulated and meant to slow fire in case of an emergency. The access to outside is immediate. We have air-conditioning in all the cabins, with split systems to allow for a quiet night --indeed the boat's equipment themselves are quiet even though some must run all night long.

Deluxe cabin size: 8.0 m2
Bed size: Twin beds or Double bed
