The cruise also offers you the most loveable, helpful local staff whilst the management is Western. Laundry service is also available onboard.
This traditional locally built boat started out as a freighter with a metal hull and a capacity of 150 tons, with two large but low-ceiling decks in order to maximize storage space. Like all ships of this type, it went up and down the Tonle Sap and Mekong, stopping at Siem Reap, Kompong Cham, Kratie and Stung Treng.
We stayed as close as we could to the original line of the ship, because we wanted to retain its slightly curved and elegant lines.
The Indochine measures 51 meters long and 11 meters wide. It has 24 rooms in all (4m x 4m), 14 on the main deck and 10 on the upper deck, each air-conditioned and with a bathroom (3.5m x 1.4m) including toilet, shower and sink. The water on board is taken from the river, passed through a powerful filtration system, U.V / ozone treated and chlorinated in the final step of the treatment.
In order to make the best possible use of the common areas from the standpoint of both size and variety we have a large, fully air conditonned, bar / lounge where passengers can enjoy movies, conferences from our local guides on board and all kind of activities. The ship also has a spacious restaurant at the back of the upper deck with a 240 degre sightseeing windowed space to relish a delightfull western / asian food.
