1. Nguyen Shack Can Tho – Ong Tim Bridge, Thanh My Area, Thuong Thanh Ward, Cai Rang District, Can Tho province, Mekong Delta.

Although there are numerous homestays in the area, Nguyen Shack-Can Tho is perhaps the best Mekong Delta homestay. As a family-run business, it provides a warm welcome to guests and makes them feel at ease.

The Nguyen Shack guesthouse is 6 kilometers from Can Tho's city center and can be reached in 15 minutes by taxi or motorbike. The bungalows are constructed of natural materials such as bamboo and leaves to let guests feel more connected to nature.

WiFi, a fan, solar-powered hot water, and a minibar are included in every room. The rural setting paired with modern conveniences gives a totally unique experience. A stay at Nguyen Shack is sure to make your vacation one to remember, and you'll be ready to return.




2. Coco Riverside Lodge – Trung Nghia village, Trung Ngai commune, Vung Liem district, Vinh Long province, Mekong Delta.

The bungalows at Coco Riverside Lodge are simple but attractive, with thatched roofs that blend seamlessly with the surrounding greenery. Each one is surrounded by a large terraced area with views of the river and a shady space to unwind or enjoy a peaceful supper.

With tiled floors and an overhanging roof to keep the heat out and large patio doors to let in the light, the modest interiors are peaceful and cool. The homestay offers a variety of programs that give you a sense of community life in the area, depending on the length of your visit.

You'll learn how to make a woven palm leaf torch to light your way on a nocturnal promenade, meet farmers and fisherman, cook traditional Vietnamese cuisine, and learn about the mysteries of popped rice. The journey includes bike rides, boat cruises, and rural walks, and it culminates in a relaxing evening of home-cooked meals.




3. Mekong Rustic Can Tho – Tan Thien hamlet, Tan Phong commune, Cai Lay district, Tien Giang province, Mekong Delta.

Mekong Rustic Can Tho is located along the Mekong River's beachfront inside the Can Tho province, 9 kilometers from Cai Rang Floating Market, and is bordered by Vam Xang's lush orchards.

As its name suggests, Mekong Rustic Can Tho was designed as a genuine hotel for guests who desired to escape from the hustle and bustle of large cities. The materials chosen for each of the 12 bungalows are well-combined to create a rustic yet serene ambiance, in line with the concept of an eco-property surrounded by tropical fruit plantations. Furthermore, the homestay promotes sustainable tourism by giving possibilities that benefit local economies while avoiding negative environmental and cultural impacts.

Guests can enjoy the on-site restaurant and complimentary WiFi, as well as a front desk that is open 24 hours a day. Some bungalows include a relaxing sitting area, while others have views of the pool or the lake. Every room features a private bathroom and a flat-screen TV.

Guests can also visit silk crafts, rice paper workshops, mat industries, and ride in traditional rickshaws to properly experience the local culture.




4. Tu Ca Linh Homestay – Thong Nhat hamlet, Phu Tho commune, Tam Nong district, Dong Thap province, Mekong Delta.

Tu Ca Linh Homestay is located in Tam Nong District, Dong Thap Province, and is a perfect spot to stay if you want to see the splendor of Tram Chim National Park and the Mekong Delta.

Tu Ca Linh homestay offers a 3000 square meter campus with a variety of accommodations to select from, ranging from standard rooms to air-conditioned rooms, and you can even stay in a wooden house in the middle of a big lotus lake. The vista here is particularly poetic during the lotus season.

The Tram Chim National Park is about 10-15 minutes away by automobile from the homestay. Specialties of the Thap Muoi region, produced by Ms. Tu herself from available ingredients in the garden, as well as some specialties of the West, depending on the season, are available at Tu Ca Linh Homestay. Tu can teach you how to cook if you want to learn. She is an excellent cook.
