    Boarding at Can Tho at Ninh Kieu pier. Welcome drink, introduction to the ship and crew, check into the cabins. Departure downstream of the Hau river. Lunch on board while en route.

    Turning into Nicolai canal, towards the Mang Thit river. Rest on the upper deck in a scenery of rice fields, sugar cane, and woods on the near banks.

    By mid-afternoon, the Bassac casts anchor for a visit on shore: past the first tree line, quiet discovery of the peaceful life in the delta’s countryside, of rice fields, fruit trees and the welcoming inhabitants, or, at your option, a short cycling tour of the surrounding area.

    Boarding back, complimentary drink as a welcome back on board. Rest on the deck or around the bar enjoying the sunset.

    The Bassac sets anchor just downstream from Tra On for the night.
