Inauguration ceremony of Dragon Eyes I: our new luxurious 2-cabin boat
Our new and luxurious cruise vessel Dragon Eyes I has been inaugurated. During the traditional «eye opening ceremony» they attached eyes at the bow of the Mekong delta river cruiser. This is to ensure good luck, a wide-awake crew and fast and safe journeys.
Due to the vibrations of the hammering the offerings fell off the boat, which caused some uncertainty at first, but then it was decided to see it as a sign that the offerings were accepted.
Afterwards the Dragon Eyes cruise vessel was pushed into the water (thanks to the help of many patient hands). The rest of the building work will be done on the water.
It is planned to have the new cruise boat up and running just before the start of the next high season. This gives people the chance to explore the Mekong delta in a more exclusive and private atmosphere. The tours will vary in length and route and can be adjusted to the needs of our guests. We also plan to have bicycles on board our floating hotel so that people can explore the small, mostly paved, raods along side canals of the Mekong river, through small villages and across river islands.
