Why Bassac cruise – 4-1/2 hours tour is special ?

After crossing the Chaktomuk (confluence of the Mekong, Tonle Sap and Bassac rivers) where you can admire the king’s palace, and the very important constructions on Koh Pich island reflecting the rapid development of Phnom Penh, boat move between the narrow banks of the Bassac. Quickly give way to the construction of houses on stilts sheet on the river and its more peaceful life. Thus, you can approach closer to the simple and hard campaign life. After passing the town of Takhmau you arrive at the northern tip of the island of Koh Anlong Chen, we take the widest channel, and pass in front of the orphanage who took care of Clara, who a few years later gave her name to the welcome children house – Ptea Clara (home of Clara) established in 2009 to accommodate children (mostly girls of course) about to be sold into prostitution.


PhoceaMekong Cruises was created to help Ptea Clara. We move to it’s level some 15 minutes later, but is not visible from the river.

Arrived at the southern tip of the island, we go back to Phnom Penh by the most narrow channel along the shores of Koh Anlong Chen, where you can admire the vegetable crops, orchards (banana, longan) and fishermen. Then we go back at Takhmau to return to the port of Phnom Penh.


Appetizer will be served after departure, when lunch will be served whith french wines on board in front of Takhmau (included in the price).


Warning: Depending on the water level, we may not go to the southern tip of the island and return by the same way as the go.

Addtional information

1/ Note order:

2/ Terms and conditions

——–Reservations———


A 30% deposit is required on booking and the balance must be settled directly on the boat. Any bank charges levied by the sending bank relating to transfers to PhoceaMekong must be paid by the Client/Agent.


———Alteration of Tours and Force Majeure——— 

Supplier reserves the right to alter arrangements or cancel the operation of a schedule should it be necessary for reasons beyond the control of the supplier. It is essential to understand that in Cambodia local conditions are not always predictable and such occurrences as weather extremes, low river water level etc. can and do from time to time cause delays, frustrations and diversions from the planned route. The company will do its best to minimise inconvenience but cannot accept responsibility for matters which are clearly beyond its control.

Very rarely, we may be forced by Force Majeure such as a war, strike, riot, crime, or an event described by the legal term « act of God » (such as flooding, earthquake, or volcanic eruption) to change or terminate your arrangements after departure. If this situation does occur, we regret we will be unable to make any refunds (unless we obtain any from our suppliers), pay you compensation or meet any costs or expenses you incur as a result.


———Complaints———–

If there is cause for complaint whilst on holiday, then this must be brought to the attention of the General Manager or his appointee who will do their best to rectify the situation. It is unreasonable to take no action whilst on holiday and then to send an Email of complaint upon return. However, should the problem remain unsolved then a complaint should be made in writing to the supplier within 28 days of the completion of the holiday.


——Health ———–

Current health advice should be sought at time of departure from a reputable travel clinic or medical practice, but currently no vaccinations are mandatory for travel to Cambodia.


———–Personal Insurance————-

It is a condition of booking that all clients are individually insured. This travel insurance should cover personal accident, medical expenses, including evacuation and repatriation, trip cancellation and loss of personal effects.


————Passports and Visas————–

It is your responsibility to ensure that you are in possession of all necessary travel and health documents before departure. We regret we cannot accept liability if you are refused entry into the country due to failure on your part to ensure you have a valid travel document (such as a passport) and the necessary visas.
