The captain will welcome you aboard and introduce you to the specialties, both European and Asian, which have made this Ho Chi Minh City dinner cruise a must-do culinary experience while in Vietnam. On board, you would be able to relax on the upper deck and enjoy the panoramic view of the city lights or to admire this lacquered, wooden boat while cruising along the river. Enter the replica of the emperors? dragon boat ?Bonsai I? for a magnificent and memorable dining and entertainment spectacle on the Saigon River. European and Asian Buffet plus grill made by executive chefs and show-cooks at their best. Music is made by an in-house orchestra ?Hoa Mai? or Filipino (I sang filipino songs there hehe, so nice to meet compatriots on foreign shores!) band for upper deck ? chill out and get surprised. Comes with complimentary head-neck-shoulder massage.

For dinner, you can select from a range of traditional dishes, including rice flower pancakes 'Banh xeo', shrimp paste on sugar can, lotus salad 'Goi ngo sen' or pork pineapple skewers made on the BBG grill. A delicious dessert will end this unforgettable evening on the waterways, before getting back to the dock after saying goodbye to our hospitable hosts. The German Owner will also sing and dance with you while on board. A truly memorable evening.
