With 28 luxurious cabins with private balconies, including two suites with their very own Jacuzzis, the Jahan has a good claim to be the finest ship on the Mekong. From the outside its rounded upper decks recall traditional palatial riverboats, with plenty of space left for sun decks and shaded alfresco dining.
The Jahan’s route takes its passengers from the ancient temples lining the Cambodian stretches of the river, through the charming streets and chilling stories of Phnom Penh and down into the surreal bustle of the Mekong Delta and on into the equally fascinating Saigon. Guests can relive their fabulous onshore experiences back onboard when they dine on Cambodian and Vietnamese cuisine concocted by skilled chefs, and with a pool and wellness centre on board, little is left to be desired.
