Bonsai River Cruise

Bonsai River Cruises offer multi purpose boats, built to follow the slogan ‘events – dining & more’.

It serves as an event, dining and conference center in lieu of meeting in the ‘sterile, tedious surroundings of a business center’. We also host private parties and dining spectacles for the public on a regular basis.

Dragon Boat – ‘Bonsai I’

‘Bonsai I’ is the biggest existing dragon boat in Vietnam and is a replica of a royal Vietnamese-style dragon boat dating back to the 19th century. During that time, such dragon boats used to be in sole possession of the Vietnamese emperors. The design and artistry is ‘Oriental Royal’ but the internal decoration is European splendour. Made of high class “Sao” wood (Hopea odorata) from Khanh Hoa Province and built from scratch in 2004, the boat is 40 meters long, 9 meters wide and about 11 meters high. The wooden dining and meeting platform can carry up to 160 passengers next to its 65 piece-crew and weighs over 340 tons. The two decks are occupied by 2 stylish bars (Cocktail Lounge, Village Bar), a wine cellar, the large buffet and dining deck, live cooking stations, show stage, wheel house, toilets, and a fully operated kitchen.
