Cần Thơ - Vị Thanh - Rạch Giá

Cần Thơ, on the first day at noon

  • Boarding onto the Bassac at the Ninh Kieu pier, welcome drink, check into the cabins.
  • Lunch as the Bassac cruises up river Can Tho and crosses the sleepy floating market at Cai Rang.
  • The boat then enters the very active Xa No canal, the main river link of Hau Giang province. The canal is lined with waterlocks and connecting canals dug in the early 20th Century to support rice production. These canals and collecting areas are still in activity today.
  • Visit on shore in the second half of the afternoon, in the vicinity of Vị Thanh.
  • Boarding back at nightfall, and dinner after a light refreshment as the Bassac resumes her long cruise towards river Cái Lớn.
  • The Bassac casts anchor for the night once past the quiet town of Go Quao.

Day 2

  • As there is no light pollution, if the weather is clear, the early morning sky is full of stars.
  • Breakfast is available from 6:30AM.
  • As she enters the brackish waters of the estuary, the Bassac may send schools of silvery fish flying. By clear weather, one can see above the trees the peak of Hon Tre island, in the gulf of Siam.
  • Arrival at the Xẻo Rô or Tắc Cậu ferry pier by mid-morning, check-out and transfer to shore.

End of services by mid-morning on shore at Rạch Giá.

Please note you will leave the Bassac for good upon boarding the small boat for the last visit, typically about 8:30.
The details of the program and the visits may vary depending on logistics or technical constraints.
