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


Douce Mekong  offers an elegant,  relaxing and fulfilling ways to  explore endless  water way of Mekong River. The cruise brings us into contact with people in different corner of the Delta . With Douce Mekong, 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 Douce Mekong 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, fruit-filled orchards, boat laden bazaar and a host of smiling children.



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 ‘Low 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!
