Ca Mau

Attending a Vietnamese wedding in December.

Where do we stay?

What do we wear to a Vietnamese wedding? We seem to be going to three celebrations for this wedding. Am I expected to wear something different to them all and what is acceptable?

What is there to do there? I have been told not much has lots of mosquitos and is built on a swamp. mmmmmm!

Any help would be appreciated do not want to offend and would like a nice holiday.

I never really noticed too much in the way of mosquitoes except at night when a few came out. A mousquito net of deet will fix that. There is not a lot of infratructure for tourists, but there is a national park not too far away. Most of the entertainment is coffee shops and Karaoke.

Do not worry too much about offending anybody at the weading. Tastfull slacks and shirts are all you need. You can wear a suit if you want to.... but it will be very warm ;)

Thanks for the info. Which hotel would you choose to stay at?

I have also heard there is not much to do. Karakoe is not our thing. The coffee shops sound good though. May only stay a couple of nights for the wedding then holiday in HoChiMin City. Cheers.

I've stayed in Ca Mau several times.as my wife's family is from near there. We stay in the "Song Ngoc" hotel.It's in the centre of town,opposite the ACB bank,on Hung Vuong street.It's a typical Delta town hotel,the rooms are clean and have A/C TV and a hot water bathtub.I think,from memory we paid about 180,000VND.There's not much to see and do in town,but there are some smallish street eateries.I never found a proper bar or even restaurant, although I believe there are some on in the outer areas of Ca Mau.Have a good stay!

Hi QBao,

Camau is not attractive place for tourist, the hotel is old and not good at service. I've been there 3 years of my charity trip. I was home stay with local people.

However, you can try Sieu Thi Hotel 3* at: 1 Hung Vuong road, ward 7, Ca Mau City, Vietnam Tel: (84-780) 3836786 ; Fax: (84-780) 3832789

Good luck

Ps: are you Viet Kieu?

Best regards,
