Mekong Rustic Cai Be

$ | Tan Thien Hamlet, Tan Phong commune, Cai Be, Vietnam

Expect to be welcomed like visiting family at this friendly homestay, which for generations was a working fruit farm. It still has a bountiful orchard, as well as chickens, cats, and dogs. The homestay rooms are great for budget travelers, but the cozy brick bungalows are much more comfortable and private. The owner, Mr. Hai, may well serenade you at some point—he's known as one of the Mekong Delta's best amateur singers. Spend your time relaxing, exploring the area by bicycle or enjoying Mekong Delta home cooking.

Pros

  • Authentic countryside experience
  • Great base for exploring
  • Delicious home-cooked meals

Cons

  • As you would expect in the countryside, there's lots of insects, including mosquitoes
  • Rooms in the main house provide limited privacy
