Review of RV Toum Tiou II
RV Toum Tiou II cruises allow international travelers to discover Indochina along Mekong River. The riverboat differs from other Mekong river cruise ships as she is able to provide an authentic cruising experience with departures from Siem Reap to Saigon (Ho Chi Minh).
Not only can travelers sail the entire trip on the river, but they also do cruising in close proximity to the river line. This way they are allowed to see an unobstructed view of the rustic existence of the local people. Most Mekong cruise ships are large and not custom built for such an intimate navigation. Toum Tiou 2 offers spectacular views of the river's flora and fauna and diverse day-to-day life of the inhabitants and cultures of Vietnam and Cambodia.
The 14 cabins on Toum Tiou II are all sized 12 m2 (129 ft2). All staterooms are fitted with elegant, colonial style furniture with wood finishes and with large windows (non-opening). All cruise cabins face the river and have two beds that can be joined to form one. Stateroom amenities include air-conditioning, private bathroom with shower, hairdryer, safe, dresser, hi-fi system, bathrobes, towels, complimentary tea and coffee.
Onboard public areas include a panoramic, open restaurant that is matchless on the Mekong River. A spacious sun deck add to the facilities. The ship's kitchen is famous for the variety of Asian food and its smiley cooks. The vessel's equipment contains a filtration/chlorination system for water safety.
