Toum Tiou I Cruise


Mekong Cruises
4 star
Mekong Delta

Toum Tiou I Cruise – The first Cambodian Cruise with International Standard Accommodation.

Erected in the traditional style, the Toum Tiou I was launched in 2002. The cruise’s name was inspired by a traditional Khmer tale, Toum and Tiou, the Cambodian version of Romeo and Juliet. The story was about Toum and Tiou. Their love were prohibited by the ambitious mother of Tiou who wanted her daughter to marry the King. The story ended in sadness when both of the young lovers had died for true love. It is the first Cambodian cruise boat with international standard accommodations. It was specially designed in local style: Fully paneled in wood, with charm and comfort details. With the tasteful decoration of a bygone era, the Toum Tiou has 10 cozy double cabins: 4 on the main deck and 6 on the upper deck with private shower, a large lounge area, a half-covered bar-restaurant to the rear and a roof patio. Toum Tiou’s low draft allows it access to the remotest of villages, offering real insights into  lively local life along the river banks which remain almost untouched by modern world.
