L'Amant cruise in Mekong DeltaAfter a short stay in Saigon, I embarked on board L’Amant, traveling to Ha Tien in the Gulf of Thailand. Casting off at the first day light, we arrived the same day at Vinh Long in the heart of the Mekong Delta, sailing amidst islets of lush and colorful tropical orchard.

After a short stopover, we continued straight away our journey to Can Tho, as our skilled Captain kept insisting that  “The tide does not wait!”. He was usually carrying a map and an ever lasting pen noting down the location of the sand banks where we could sometimes spot some ships accidentally trapped.
