Know More about this tour

The journey starts with free hotel pickup inside Phnom penh. Upon boarding you'll receive a free Sunset Cocktail. Departing about 5pm, you'll be cruising along the Phnom penh riverfront while enjoying the subtle sounds of live traditional Khmer music on the upper-deck. You can also view the scenery from the main deck for a more cozy experience. Leaving the Royal palace you will journey to the junction of the Tonle Sap, Mekong, and Bassac Rivers. Along the way, you maysee floating villages and fishing families living on their house boats. Cruising on the Mekong, you will see the sunset over Phnom penh in the distance. On the right day, the sunset is the highlight of the journey.

Dinner is served after sunset. An all-you-can-eat buffet made from fresh, local, organic food that is stored, prepped, and cooked fresh daily on the boat in a stainless steel kitchen, never prepared on land hours before, and definitely not on a rusty charcoal grill. No fish from the river is served, ever. All original sauces are made onboard. Salad, spring rolls, organic brown rice, curry, fruit, fresh bread, sandwiches, and a variety barbecue with Texas-style barbecue and Asian teriyaki sauce is served. There are low-carb, vegetarian, vegan, and halal options available. If you choose the "cruise only" option, the buffet and an a-la-carte menu is available for purchase.

The bar has spirits from around the world. Most any traditional cocktail can be made, but be sure and try one of many original signature cocktails, satisfaction guaranteed. Local and imported beers, as well as red and white wines by the glass or bottle. Fresh, locally grown coffee beans are ground just before brewing to ensure fantastic espresso, and coffee.

After dinner, cruise down the Mekong River before turning up the Tonle Sap to take in the Phnom penh riverfront skyline after dark. This perspective is stunning, only to be seen like this by boat. After passing under the Japanese Friendship Bridge, return to port. The bar will stay open, and you are free to stay and enjoy the river views.

The cruise boat is a newly constructed vessel designed solely with lunch/dinner cruising in mind. With 365 degree views from the top, it has 140 seats with a rustic, wooden, Cambodian design with modern touches. It is equipped with three toilets, mens, women's, and staff's, running water from fresh water tanks, and a water filtration system for clean, purified drinking water. Hygiene, safety, and guest satisfaction are the priorities. A large commercial kitchen with floor-to-ceiling stainless steel walls and appliances, and rubber flooring is designed to prepare food for up to 120 guests in short order. The boat is licensed, inspected, and has staff that is well-trained in safety and first-aid procedures, with flotation devices, safety equipment, and fire extinguishers onboard. No other boat in Phnom penh can offer you all of these things.

    This was a good introduction to Phnom Penh. The food was good and the staff was friendly. This trip had a trio playing traditional instruments which made it better for me than the 'party boats' that passed us playing recorded pop music. The Khmer children swimming in the river near the jetty was an added treat that the company didn't plan so don't be disappointed if you don't get to see them.

    As there were only 5 people on this cruise and the fact it was raining, it was quite an uninspiring trip. Scenery along the river banks was good. I'm sure it would have a lot more atmosphere if it was a better night.

    friendly staff, good food, soothing live music in the background, no delays, overall, we had a memorable time.

    The best part about this cruise was the staff - all amazing!! The food was reasonably good. The boat itself seemed well maintained and plenty of room. Good duration of two hours.

    Took this cruise a couple of weeks ago with my wife. Efficient hotel "pick up" by tuk tuk, we received a welcome drink and food on board was fine. Crew were quite engaging and the evening passed quickly. Following the cruise you are dropped at the docking point. Most enjoyable!

    It was a very nice night. We were picked up as scheduled. The boat was very clean. The entire crew was very friendly and helpful. The cruise took approximately two hours and made a short cruise around the river. The buffet was excellent. There was plenty to eat and very good quality. I would recommend this cruise to everyone

    I really quite enjoyed this. I can be sceptial about these types of things, but actually it was a nice way to see Phnom Penh from a different point of view and as it really is in some ways - small traditional fishing boats set against the bright lights of a modernising (for better but probably for worse) city. But it was the extremely friendly and chatty staff that made it a pleasure. I had a couple of genuinely interesting and thoughtful conversations about Cambodia, Phnom Penh and football, obviously. That may have been their job to talk to and serve customers, but they were also genuinely friendly and engaging and it made the trip. I didn't have the buffet as I wasn't hungry, but it looked fine. There was a complimentary drink on arrival and drink prices were not unreasonable, which again made it a nice way to spend an early evening.

    This was our second time on the cruise and we still loved it. The boat is clean. Pick up from hotel maybe too efficient. We got to the boat a little early but they compensated by offering us extra free cocktails. Beautiful sunset and amazing insight into life on the river. The dinner was delicious and the staff are lovely. In particular Sareth who made our night extra special.

    Just like a normal boat riding. No one is entertaining us or giving us infos about places we are passing by. We got the cruise with buffet dinner but unfortunately because we are the only passengers together with the 2 women, which did not purchase the cruise with dinner, so we didn't get the 'buffet' and instead, they served us a lousy dinner. Our son didn't even ate it. Not worth the price.
