The Mystic Sampans take you to the floating market with a breakfast, or to a daytime excursion with a meal. They are designed for the floating markets, but can even run the medium-range route and navigate and serve by night, with some lighting on board.

Be it in our restaurants, Sao Hôm and Nam Bộ in Cần Thơ, on the Mystic sampans or on board the Bassac, cuisine is one of our better assets, as we offer meals cooked and baked afresh including the bread and pastry for breakfast. As the Bassac have their own galley, they are very reactive to meet the needs and tastes of your passengers, even in case a surprise cake would be de rigueur.

The Bassac pioneered cruises in comfort in the Mekong delta, and we strive to deserve remaining the reference in the region.
