The Mekong trip is mostly about the floating market for most travellers. Nguyen shack is tucked away in a corner providing a much needed break from the hustle and bustle of big cities. The early morning boat tour and the bicycle tour arranged by the team here gives a great insight into the rural life of south Vietnam.

What a lovely homestay! We loved our stay, the hospitality was amazing and we loved all the tour we did - cycling, visiting the floating market and sunset boat cruise. Such a lovely few days we wanted to extend our stay by another day but sadly it was all booked up! Thanks to the team for the absolute best, most... More

We know this is outdoor living and not a hotel so we don't expect the same level of comfort. However, there were quite a few issues that complicated our stay: 1) The first shack we received was located right over the pig cage and did not have a door, nor anything to ensure privacy. We requested another room which was... More

We enjoyed the remote location, the floating market (eventhough too crowded), the food at the shack is very nice, and service was very kind. Just one remark : when going around on an expedition, it is a bit painful to be treated like children, like we don't know how to cross the street !! how did we survive so far... More

Lovely staff. Clean rooms in a beautiful spot. Off the beaten track so very quiet and peaceful. We stayed as part of a group of 3 families travelling together. 16 of us in all. The staff were amazing when we descended on mass. Well worth the visit. The early morning long boat trip to the Mekong Delta floating markets was... More

Perfect stay in this lovely resort. A good experience to attend the English lessons with local students in town. Helpful and kind staff, good food. Try to book in the bungalows near the river for the best experience. In the bungalows you will find everything you need for a perfect stay in the Mekong Delta, were nobody lives in airconditioning...

We stayed here for 2 nights in one of the bungalows which was nice. The Shacks are roughly 10km from Can Tho city so it is quite secluded and gives you a good insight on how the locals live. The staff (Lilly, Kai, Heoung & the gentleman who was in control of the boat) really make this place a pleasure... More

If you're okay with the stepping away from the typical hotel this is an absolute must. The staff where amazing and it is so picturesque. The hotel also provided so many free activities to get involved in including bike rental, hot cup massage and fish massage. I had the hot cup massage and that was a very different experience :)...

Nguyen shack is 15 minutes outside from Can Tho in a quiet area. We stayed here for three nights, had a relaxed time in our bungalow number two (you can see it on the first picture on the right side close to the restaurant area). It's a nice bungalow with a great terrace to the river. The restaurant is very... More

I arrived to stay 1 night and extended it for 3 nights. I stayed in the dormitory. It was very clean with a very relaxed, comfortable, familiar atmosphere. The food was great in the restaurant, the hammocks outside of my the bungalows ensured the chilling out. It is a fantastic place for relaxation. Close to the floating market and boat... More
