La Marguerite cruise stands out on the Mekong River with white paint and ancient, French design, reminiscent of the famous love story.

Produced since 2009, after 15 years of traveling on the Mekong River, La Marguerite yacht has become a tourist highlight on the Tien River - one of the two tributaries of the Mekong River flowing into Vietnam. The yacht stands out with white paint and ancient design, bold French architecture. 

The three-storey, 72-meter-long yacht with 46 cabins, caters to a maximum of 92 guests. Dang Hieu Trung, general director of Focus Travel – the management unit that operates La Marguerite yachts, said that to build a yacht with such scale and quality costs about 10 million USD. The ship mainly welcomes international delegations from the US, Canada, Australia ... Join to experience the land along the Mekong River, starting from Ho Chi Minh City. HCM and ends in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

The architecture inside the yacht is luxurious and sophisticated, decorated with yellow-brown and white tones, bringing a feeling of closeness and coziness to visitors. Every detail of the ship reminds you of nostalgic Art Nouveau France. The main hall of the yacht stands out with a spiral staircase, creating an impressive highlight for the space. 

The name of the yacht is also reminiscent of the famous love story between Marguerite and an overseas Chinese man named Huynh Thuy Le. The two met by chance on the ferry across the Tien River and fell in love at first sight. Pictures of the two are placed in the reading room.

At the Ponagar restaurant area, large glass windows help visitors to take in the view of the scenery of nature, the life of people on both sides of the Tien River and the boats crossing the vertical.

On the cruise, visitors both explore the Mekong River and resort tourism with facilities such as outdoor jacuzzi pool, outdoor bar, gym, spa, reading room,....

Early morning sunrise and sunset are the times visitors often choose to admire the lyrical western river scenery in the sundeck area. Visitors can experience many attractive European and Asian dishes and drinks, including dishes with typical flavors of the West.
