We are small and intimate. Passengers get a "family-type" feel
As the boats are small, the ships are able to enter smaller parts of the river and enter into places that other ships can't
As the ship are small, they are able to navigate right through the Gao canal and dock at Saigon port, other ships are too big and they stop at My Tho and the passengers need to take a bus to Saigon
The same for Siem Reap, during high water the ship is able to dock at Siem Reap port
As our ships are tastefully made and designed and wooden feel and also authentic, the passengers will not feel that they are "distant" from the village people they are visiting. There is not a huge gulf between the passengers and the local people.
