CF Mekong River Cruises – RV Toum Tiou

Toum Tiou’s steel hull and sleek low draft make it the only true vessel that sails the Mekong. Toum Tiou and its sister vessel, Toum Tiou II, are the only ships which can sail from the Siem Reap pier to Saigon’s harbour. With other vessels, passengers have to disembark mid-river and continue on land.

Toum Tiou’s low draft allows it access to the remotest of villages and to gently hug the river line, affording passengers priceless views of people, flora and fauna – hardly touched by modernity. Toum Tiou was custom built for passenger privacy, intimacy, comfort and safety. Toum Tiou has 10 cosy double cabins; each with a private lounge area, air conditioning, hi-fi system, and en suite bathroom with hot/cold private shower.
