About Song Xanh Sampan
Take a private cruise through the Mekong Delta to discover the natural wonders of this iconic destination. You spacious living quarters are equipped with beautiful bamboo and rattan furniture, echoing the charm of the sampans of old which were once abundant on the delta.
The four crew members onboard provide ultimate service. As your vessel navigates these mysterious waters, look out for the resident wildlife. This is one of the most wildlife-rich river basins in the world, second only to the Amazon in biodiversity. Watch the banks for sun bears and Asian elephants, while you could even see the rare Irrawaddy river dolphin breach the surface.
Increase your wildlife-watching chance by boarding one of the rowing boats carried by each sampan. Move with stealth through even the densest section of the delta and traverse the small canals and arroyos. You also have the chance to witness an array of fascinating cultural scenes, from charming local villages to remote jungle temples.
