Gecko Eyes Cruise: A Perfect Private Cruise for Couples in the Mighty Mekong
Like other pioneers in the famous Mekong Eyes fleet, Gecko Eyes Cruise is the best choice for tourists who want to take private tours exploring the lower Mekong River according to their personal tastes. Featuring only one cabin on board each of the two beautiful vessels, Gecko Eyes is designed for private trips, ideal for small families and couples. Let’s read on to discover the highlights of this houseboat brand.
Private Mekong River Cruisers
Gecko Eyes consists of two luxurious houseboats for private excursions in the Mekong Delta, which are modeled after the traditional An Giang fishing boats. All vessels are constructed of indigenous wood and crafted by local artisans, with exquisite carvings added for a unique touch.
Combining traditional design and distinctive local aesthetics, the only cabin on board Gecko Eyes is elegantly furnished with a 40-square-meter guest area (double or twin occupancy), a French balcony, panorama windows, air conditioning, a private bathroom, an open-air lounge, and a large sundeck, all of which perfectly capture the allure of the Mekong Delta in an authentic way.
At the rear of the ship is the staff section, which includes a fully functional kitchen. To enhance your privacy, a lockable door separates this section entirely from the guest area. While on board, the crew (captain, tour guide, sailor, and chef) is at your disposal to ensure your safety and well-being.
Advantages of Private Ship Expeditions
With a shallow draft, the Gecko Eyes can easily navigate through the Mekong Delta's small canals and waterways that larger ships cannot access. The sailing region extends from Cai Be, near Saigon, via the charming historical town of Sa Dec, Can Tho, with its famous floating markets, to Long Xuyen and Chau Doc, near the Cambodia border, or down to Ha Tien and Rach Gia port cities. Basically, the whole Mekong Delta region is at the Gecko Eyes’ disposal, as the houseboats are self-sufficient for several days.
Travel along orchards and villages, witness floating towns and explore the local life, or pass by tiny canals to immerse yourself in the rustic scenery. The Gecko Eyes Cruise is without a doubt the ideal getaway for couples visiting the vast Mekong Delta.
