SAFETY

Safety comes first in the design and operation of the ships. Floatation devices are available for all on board and more, redundant alarm and fire detection as well as redundant firefighting means are present on all the Mango Day Cruise. The handrails all around the ship are sturdy and a mesh of rope prevents any kids from falling. Upon boarding, the passengers are informed of the areas that are open or off-limits to them, and instructed about emergencies, how to give the alarm and where to meet.

 

WHEN TO VISIT MEKONG RIVER DELTA

- The most popular time of year to visit the region is between November and April.
- The hot season, from March to May is very dry, but in some places. During this time, some rivers are harder to navigate, and boat journeys in remote places may not be possible.
- The rainy season, generally from June to September is for many people the best time to travel - despite the fact that it rains, it never gets that cold, and nearly all hotels and guesthouses have rooms available - often a lot cheaper than during the high season

 

WHAT TO BRING

- Light clothing: made from natural fibers is the best clothing for the region.
- Warm clothing (for month from December to January)
- Footwear: bring sandals or slip on to take off easily when entering temples. Flip flops can be bought very cheaply just about anywhere.
- A small collapsible umbrella is sensible for the rainy season.

- A flashlight is a good idea, in case of power cuts.
