A combination of travel and healthcare is a worthwhile experience. Not long ago, a luxury yacht called Victoria Mekong Cruises, which has four storeys with 35 well-equipped cabins of international standards and can accommodate hundreds of passengers, departed from Can Tho City to Chau Doc City in An Giang Province on a “Wellness retreat” journey in the Mekong Delta region.

A peaceful mind in the midst of life’s changes

Starting a day with the Hatha Yoga class and meditation on deck in an airy place will provide a great deal of energy. Tourists can watch the sunrise on the river, feel the life of subsistence of vendors on rivers and see many rafts covered in a thick blanket of fog. The class taught by yoga and meditation teacher Nguyen Anh Kiet will help practitioners relax, relieve stress, stay focused and have a better sleep. “If we spend a few minutes meditating each day, we will feel happier,” said Coach Luong Ngoc Tien.

Disembarking from the yacht and stepping onto the river bank is a start of an exploration journey to the Tra Su cajuput forest with flora and fauna. Specifically, a special attraction is a scene of white storks’ nests built densely on branches of century-old cajuput trees. Foreign tourists are excited to immerse themselves in nature, feeling grateful for wildlife and ecosystem conservationists.
