As another wedding season winds up, a lot of us are thinking about the right venue for our reception. Maybe it’ll be an outside tent – or a comfortable hall at a centre. But have you thought about taking the celebration out to sea?

If you’re thinking of doing something unique – and definitely exciting – then the New World Boat might be the right service just for you.

New World Boat’s office is located in front of the Phnom Penh Water Supply Authority, on your way towards the Chol Chong Va Bridge. Boats of myriad shapes and sizes dot the river bank in a bedazzling array of seafarers’ delight.

A chartered boat from New World can hold between 60 and 70 passengers. The top deck is a large open space, best utilised for dancing and partying. Each boat is decorated with dimly-lit lamps that create a stunning, relaxed night-time ambience.

From the top deck, it’s possible to catch life-changing glimpses of the Mekong River and the areas surrounding the Royal Palace. As the sun sets and fresh cool air blows through the river, it’s one of the most spectacular feelings a person could ask for.

Hearly Chanthy, the manager of New World Boat, said, “We decorate and organise the boat the best way possible to celebrate parties, such as wedding receptions and birthdays.”

“To date, we’ve organised seven wedding anniversary parties.”

“The price is US$35 per hour for 30 people, and $40 for over 30 people – also, we have services for flower decoration, cake making and buffets.”

If you want to celebrate your wedding party amid the ever-flowing beauty of the Mekong, then have a look into New World Boat. You won’t be disappointed.
