Our family of 3 children and 2 adults are currently staying at the Blue River Hotel and have spent 2 nights here - can HIGHLY recommend it as a clean safe quiet place to stay - air con great, Thuy (owner) is very honest and the breakfast is lovely. Right in the action part of town and everything is spotlessly clean. Another person I can VERY HIGHLY recommend for tours to Mekong - or anything else that you could possibly want - is JASON SSS (Super Star Services). We have just done a 2 day trip to the Mekong with him, and he is better organised than Qantas with a Jetstar price-tag! We have had the most fabulous look at all things MEKONG with him in his airconditioned Merc, free icy cold drinks, DVDs for the kids, Fantastic food & first class accomodation. Jason SSS booked us into a VN resort on a island 15 mins from CanTho by boat - it was a gorgeous place to stay - quiet, spotlessly clean with a water slide for the kids, water buffalo (concrete) in another pool for kids to enjoy. The highlight of the resort was CROCODILE FISHING - Fairdinkum - you hold a bait just above their nose on a fishing line and they jump up and and take it !! Steve Irwin eat your heart out ! There was about 5000 fully grown crocs in a pond the size of 3 footy fields and we stood on a (safe) pier and had a once-in-=a-lifetime experience ! (about 20 cents a bait - best $3 and hour of time to spend). There was also fishing for fish here too, but we ran out of time. Monkeys roaming around, canoeing, lots to keep everyone entertained. JASON SSS also booked and paid for airtickets (before we had even met), bought us a sim card, took us around HCMC by night, boat cruise in HCMC - all for free and part of his "anything is possible" attitude. He is a laugh a minute and we miss him already!! Thankyou Jason you really are a SUPER STAR SERVICE provider - NUMBER ONE !!
