Offer day cruises from our restaurant on the Cần Thơ river, the Sao Hôm, in the old market hall, which is the most comfortable base for tours to the floating markets and around Cần Thơ.

The cuisine served on board day cruises departing from Cần Thơ, be it for breakfast, lunch or dinner, is entirely prepared and cooked by our care, and in the morning, the bread, croissants and chocolate bread are hot off the stove.
The Mystic sampans are all able to run the medium-range cruise and to link the cities and towns of teh delta through the maze of canals and tributaries to the Mekong, with visits on shore

4 large sampans are operated with a total capacity exceeding 100 passengers at one time. Contact us if you wish to go on journeys a la carte.

The sampans
17m Mystic sampans, 26-30 passengers
The 17m, 56′-long Mystic sampans accommodate 26 and some of them up to 30 passengers, seated at their tables with a buffet service for breakfast, or even for a service at the table on the occasion of a lunch or dinner. The roof is made of light bamboo thatch, and the sampan provides warm lighting for a party cruising at night. We brought attention to every detail, to the best marine tradition.

The sampan is built so as to allow the passengers a level access to the sellers and buyers at the floating market, in comfort and with utmost stability even in high wind. The hull was designed for speed, the framework is rugged and strong to fend into the floating market and offers a wide view to the outside, whether sitting or standing, and the inside volume allows the passengers to stand and move freely around the sampan.

A toilet cabinet and stylish washbasin are available at the aft, extending the comfort of a hotel room throughout the excursion, making short cruises available to elderly passengers or l en join-inarger, inexperienced groups.

The large sampans were designed with short-to-average leisure stroll in mind, yet have proven very efficient in middle-range cruising, being able to reach with a full party from Cần Thơ to Cái Bè in half a day.

Mystic Cái Răng, 13m, 16 passengers

The 13m, 42′-long Mystic Cái Răng comfortably accommodates 16 passengers, free to stand and move around the sampan to the aft and buffet, or sit at their table to taste their breakfast. It follows the traditional shape of the floating market carriers, yet is open enough for everyone to enjoy the sights freely.

The whole hull and framework are made of wood and built according to tradition, making the Mystic Cái Răng into a multi-purpose sampan, designed for buffet and service, but also fit as a heavy-duty shuttle or as the carrier for kayaking parties.

Its flat, low-shape bow and flanks allows even elder passengers to board the sampan and disembark at unprepared banks, making it easy to face program changes and pick up the party or bring it to shore at unscheduled places.
