This was one of the best things we did on our Vietnam trip. Our tour guide nhan was exceptional - very knowledgeable, friendly and spoke great English. The activities were varied and well planned. Our favourites were Mr Hi’s tea party and the cooking class. In general the experience felt really authentic, and not too touristy. The lodge itself was lovely and our hosts prepared delicious food (and so much of it!). We are a gay couple and had no issues at all in that respect.

This place is a hidden gem, you feel like you are in the middle of the jungle. The outdoor bathroom is amazing. Beds are a little hard but the atmosphere and staff make up for it. Recommend making use of the free bicycles on offer and just get out and explore. An amazing base to experience the Mekong Delta and all it has to offer.

The humid conditions did not diminish our amazing 3 days and 2 nights at the Mekong Rustic. The cute bungalow was contemporary with fans & a mosquito over the comfortable bed. The home cooked food was delicious & generous in portion. Our guide Nyung was exceptional with his friendly disposition and knowledge of the area. We cycled to the local basket weavers, cooked jackfruit cake in a local home, enjoyed a tea party of exotic fruit and ginger tea with Mr Hi, cruised to the floating markets, paddled up the thin canals in a fishing boat, watched the sunset over the Mekong River and more. This was a lovely adventure and if you are looking for something cultural and relaxing we would recommend you book in.

This was a truly special experience. Visited in april with a group and met Nhi who introduced us to the family who ran the site and the amazing bungalows built there. Little bridges and rockeries make it so charming along with hammocks and swings over lakes and more. Accommodation amazing. Food super amazing and real home style feel to it like eating with family. We met Mr Hi and had afternoon tea at his house after learning to make jack cake and trying exotic fruits and tea. We cycled to see a local basket weaver and learnt some vietnamese and saw a local school. We then went mud fishing caught a catfish and the family cooked it for us. Karaoke and water fights. Just idyllic setting natural rustic and fun. Only 7 mins on the ferry.

We did the Home stay, which we found really comfortable and easy. Nhi, the woman that we had communications with, was amazing. She is such a character and was really enthusiastic to show us around, even after hours. We had a dinner and a breakfast which were simple and tasty. You have access to soft drinks, water and beer on an honesty system as well as ample bicycles for rent. We felt relaxed and at home at this place.
