Mandarin Cruises is one of the leading high-speed ferry operators in Vietnam, providing trans-national routes between Phnom Penh in southern Cambodia and Chau Doc, Vietnam, along the Mekong River.
Founded in 1999, under the name of Tu Trang Travel, Mandarin Cruises is now one of the first choices for travellers looking to cross the border, on the twelfth longest river in the world, and seventh in Asia: the Mekong, reaching an estimated 4,350 kilometres in length.
Operated by a team of well-trained crew members, Mandarin Cruises’ high-speed vessels are long and streamlined in design, running on powerful twin engines and offering some of the quickest sailings in the region. Coloured in the company’s iconic orange and white, the smallest ferry accommodates 11 passengers, while the largest can hold 45 with an on-board toilet, two sections for luggage and comfortable seats. The fleet also includes two more speedboats, both with outdoor seating areas offering the best views of the jungle-fringed river banks.
