Cruising with Style on the Mekong

By: Nora Lindstrom Posted: November-10-2010 in

The Butterfly brings novel sophistication to sunset cruises in Phnom Penh. Launched in early July, the beautifully renovated boat comes complete with comfortable lounging bed, good sound system and catering according to need.

There’s also a proper loo! Designed for up to 15 guests, experienced Captain Kim and his wife will take customers on both longer and shorter tours on the Tonle Sap and beyond. Overnight adventure tours are also offered.

The management is happy to consider almost any cruise request. Though the lack of roof on half the boat may render cruises during the rainy season somewhat chancy, the excellent bloody marys make up for a few drops of water. An additional draw is that despite its up-scale looks, prices are sensible at US$15/hour and prices for longer trips are negotiable.

The Butterfly is located on the river opposite Street 136. To book, contact Kim on 012 981 559.
