Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City and The South
Info : Mango Home
Hugging the banks of the riverside in the heart of the Mekong Delta is the Mango Home; a charming place to stay that combines the warmth and familiarity of a homestay with the standards and facilities of a small hotel.
However, the Mango Home is much more than simply a place to stay. The dwellings are merely the place you sleep at the end of a day of adventure and activity, all of which is included in the price.
Your experience begins with a tuk tuk ride through the small villages close to the main meeting point. Here you will be met by one of the excellent local guides and given information on the area and the stay you have ahead of you. Next the tuk tuk drops you at your private boat, which will be waiting for you with cool towels and fresh fruits. The boat journey to the Mango Home will stop at a few sites of interest along the river such a local tile factory and a coconut processing facility.
Mango Home offers accommodation in a number of simple but well-appointed rooms. All have fridges and seating areas as well as outdoor bathrooms with showers and bathtubs.
On site there are also excellent activities offered which include cycle rides, market visits, trips to visit village elders’ houses and walks. Cooking lessons are also a must.
The food and service is excellent throughout and the local guides deserve special mention for really bringing the local area and culture to life.
The Mango Homestay offers a great way to experience the charms of the Mekong Delta through a carefully considered mix of activity and relaxation. Mango Home offers a great alternative to some of the more expensive cruises in the region, whilst still giving you plenty of time on the river itself. Recommended.
Eco/Adventure - This category covers gorgeous lodges in the jungle, comfortable safari camps and dreamy, but simple, beach cabanas. These places defy conventional categorisation: what is communing with nature to one person may be terrifying bugs to another! Many of these places are very comfortable and the service generally of a very high level - but please read the website review carefully and/or talk to us and be sure to have understood what you are letting yourselves in for!

We feel that we've seen Vietnam and Cambodia in some depth. The real parts, not just the tourist areas. The holiday has provided us with great insight into both countries. David was right when he said it would be better to have our own Guide and driver. It really did make a big difference to the holiday overall!
