When my wife told me about the possibilty of staying on a floating house I was excited, but unprepared for the outcome.
We were warmly greeted and shown the property by the owner. Every need was attended too. We were fed like royalty and waited on hand and foot. This as some of the best food I had while in Vietnam.
This was the perfect "wind down" for my wife and me. After the rush of Saigon and Hanoi it was very relaxing to be in this quiet part of the country. There was plenty to do and the owner arranged for a wonderful tour for us!
I would highly recommend this experience to anyone that is interested in visiting the Mekong Delta. Make a night or two stayover here!
