“We also enjoyed the village and a bike trip in the area. Overall we wouldn’t have missed this for anything – this must be the best way to discover the real life in the Mekong delta.The room is very basic and a bit noisy from both the riverboats and scooters, but ear plugs can fix this. To us this was a part of the experience”said by a visitor on Trip Advisor
