    I had been traveling throughout Vietnam with Tonkin Travel when I experienced a nightmare on Tan Phong Island. My husband and I were given our bikes from a stack of bicycles and we started our ride on...  more »

    Wonderful people, very welcoming. They offer great activities, free bikes and amazing food. I totally love this place and the nice family living there. They are really good hosts and great cooks. The rooms are cozy and the beds are really comfortable. They have big mosquito nets to guarantee a good sleep, but better bring some earplugs, as the birds, crickets and frogs as well as their chickens can sometimes produce some noise. But this also creates a great atmosphere and a perfect jungle feeling. I recommend to book one of the tours (look in the website), I joined a group and went fishing and it was an amazing experience. The family doesn't speak English but still conversation is always possible somehow. Also a tour guide comes to the Mekong Rustic every day and can help you whenever you have questions. It was absolutely worth the stay, even after 4 days I didn't get bored and it was a great adventure for me to see the local culture. Thanks for having me!

    Extremely helpful people. They arranged boat tour for us (2 people) in Mekong delta only for 110.000/hour and we had a blast with local grandpa rowing the boat. They even provided us with Vietnamiese hats so we felt like locals. Great experience !

    The family home on Tân Phong island is a real homestay. It's not a hotel or a guesthouse, we ate with the family and slept in a room inside their house. The dinners were superb. All members of the family, the dad Chú, the mum Cô and the son and daughter Duy and My were gentle, real people. It's so pleasant to take a break from the tourism industry shysters with some human beings. We had a lot of fun using bikes to ride around the island, and we met a local man who let us use his boat on the river. In Cái Bè town we found an old French administration building. We had no idea it was there from any guidebook, it's just something you'll have to discover for yourself. You'll find it if you take the road that runs north-south parallel to Caí Bè town's west bank ;)
