Cabin:

Featuring five different excursions, the Mekong Queen services will surely take you beyond Delta’s stunning sites and charming people. It is possible to take tours on small boats into the more remote rivers for getting through local villages in comfort. It is also possible to cycle around the rude road through local lives and along the river when you get off on board. Food tastes better when flavored by the chef who has a passion for his art. The same thing applies to a variety of activities in life.
