Value
Situated on one of the most beautiful islands on Mekong River, Cai Be town, Tien Giang province, just about 2 hour drive from Ho Chi Minh City, Mekong Rustic Cai Be with 15 family bungalows and 4 homestay rooms stands beside famous Cai Be floating market. Surrounded by lush fruit gardens, it emphasizes the natural beauty that is seldom visited on this rural Mekong Delta area. Despite 80 percent of the Vietnamese population living in the countryside, visitors to Vietnam are rarely given an opportunity to peek beneath the veil of this age-old culture. Our goal is to set a benchmark in eco-tourism here that can be replicated throughout the region in order to preserve the natural ecology and improve local community living standard. It is not merely the beautiful surroundings or the brick and mortar of villages that made up the community; it is the people who live in it. At Mekong Rustic, whats important to us is that you experience the true authentic Vietnamese culture.

I spent a fabulous 2 weeks at Mekong Rustic Cai Be. What a truly wonderful, authentic rural experience! Incredibly gracious and generous hosts. Loved exploring Tan Phong Island from the homestay and taking the ferry across to Cai Be Town (great local land market and yum coffee!). I was able to be part of so many everyday life experiences, as well as special events at the homestay & tours to surrounding areas. Fantastic food, from the basic to the banquet! Highly recommended.

We stayed here for 1 night in our Mekong Trip and I just say it was an amazing experience. The room was pretty nice and elagant. There was no air conditioner in the room but it seems to be not necessary because it is really cool at night. The food was good too with a lot of nice local food. The host was so friendly and helpful. If you are looking for an authentic experience wih homestay, this is the best recommendation for you.

We stayed in the double bungalows which were lovely, the ceiling fan did a great job of keeping us cool in the hot summer and the bed was really comfy. The garden setting is beautiful and the hosts cooked us incredible food - lots of it! We booked a package, 2 nights accomodation and tours which was gave insight into Mekong Delta life, from visiting local workshops, cooking sweets with a local lady, exploring the island on bike and by boat. Our guide, Mr Nhan was very knowledgable and wonderful at answering our many questions with a smile. It was very relaxed and certainly rustic - you can hear roosters crowing and other farm animals but we enjoyed hearing all the local sounds. I would recommend a Mekong Rustic tour to anyone wishing for an authentic experience.

My daughter (aged 14) and I had the most relaxing and authentic stay at this beautiful property. Lovely, gracious hosts. Clean, comfortable rooms. We rode bicycles around the island visiting locals making handicrafts, a lovely farm with loads of fruit trees and also stopped to make pandang rice dessert. Nhi was a wonderful guide who went out of her way to make us feel very comfortable. The food was plentiful (so much) and so good. The quiet of the night had us both sleeping peacefully. We will definitely be back soon.
