We had quite the adventure to get to Nguyen Shack! we tried booking the bus in Ho Chi Minh City at Phuong Trang, however they said they didn't go to Can Tho, after asking around other bus lines, everyone agreed that Phong Trang were the only people that went to Can Tho, so we went back and realised they were...

If you are coming from Ho chi minh, take the 4 hour bus to Can tho, there are plenty of taxi's at the bus stop which will bring you to the shack. Some one will come to recieve you at the small road and carry you and your luggage on a moped down a tiny, rain soaked road. What fun!... More

We stayed for 2 nights in June 2014. Two nights was just perfect, time for touring with enough down time to relax. We were the only guests as it's low season, so it was very quiet and peaceful. We did all 3 tours offered by the shack, and learnt so much with Eli and Kim guiding us. The food was... More

We had a great 3 days in a lovely bungalow with a balcony over the river. Eli and Kim were great hosts and made us feel at home straight away. We did all three tours, the floating market is a must and it was great to have Kim along to explain it all. The bike tour with Eli was very... More

5 bungalows in the Mekong delta to go back to basic to relax and enjoy with the hospitable Eli and Kim. Morning market tour with Kim was really worthwhile with her enthusiastic and pure explanation. We stayed one night from and to HCM and it was worth the travel time (3+ hours Futa bus line 130k per person one way... More

From the moment you arrive the hosts Kim & Eli make you feel at home. The sleeping accommodation is fantastic with balcony straight out onto the Mekong. We had dinner/breakfast/lunch at the shack and all were excellent. The floating market/land market trip and the bicycle tour were both enhanced by Kim & Elis local knowledge. The view is to die...

We were intrigued about this place after reading about it on TripAdvisor and our only disappointment was that the original owners Theu and Maxime are now at the sister property in the north of the country. The shacks are very comfortable with the balcony over the river being the big attraction. Fridge in the room meant we had plenty of... More
