 Le Cochinchine is a modern and tastefully designed in traditional style. It measures around 30 meters long from bow to stern and has two 420 HP engines, one in back up, making Le Cochinchine a very powerful and safe river vessel.

Le Cochinchine offers an elegant, relaxing and fulfilling ways to explore endless water way of Mekong River  with pleasant  encounter with local people. With Le Cochinchine, you will have ample opportunity to see Vietnam in its authenticity  and sample local culture and food,  in a one unpacking, unforgettable vacation where  your "floating hotel" get  you insight into Mekong Delta and quaint villages.

Aboard Le Cochinchine you will enjoy the continuous and ever-changing scenery
 as you encounter a lively world of legendary  waterways and picturesque landscapes, floating markets, lush bonsais garden, rice fields,  villages, pagodas and temples and fruit-filled orchards, and boat laden bazaar.


Each cabin has its own air-conditioning unit, which can be adjusted for your comfort. We recommend you do not over-cool your cabin as the sudden change from the outside temperature to a chilled cabin can bring on colds, respiratory illnesses and even stomach upsets. When you go out, we recommend you turn the setting to 'Lo Cool', set at about 4, and then when you return you can readjust the temperature to your preference without having to wait for cool air. At night you may prefer to use the fan only, and have the windows open. Insect netting covers the windows to enable you to do this. Please do not leave your air-conditioner on with the window open - this results in energy loss (the equivalent of switching on the heating and opening the windows in a cold country!)


Meals on board  Le Cochinchine meals are taken at one sitting. It is not necessary to sit at the same table each time and we have tables for individuals, couples right up to larger groups. We offer a mixture of local cuisine with richly flavor and taste and there are always vegetarian dishes offered. Passengers requiring special diets, such as vegetarian, low salt & low cholesterol meals, may make their requests to the chef when onboard. The chef will try to honor all requests. Exotic fruit, fresh organic vegetables, locally caught fish and prawns are the preference of most of our passengers.
