Situated on one of the most beautiful islands on the Mekong River, Cai Be Town, Tien Giang Province, Mekong Rustic stands beside Cai Be floating market among fruit gardens which emphasize the beautiful but seldom visited rural areas on this side of the Mekong River.
With 80 per cent of the Vietnamese population living in the countryside, visitors to Vietnam are rarely given the opportunity to peek beneath the veil of this age-old-culture. It is our goal to set a benchmark in ecotourism here that can be replicated throughout the region. In order to do this, we need to continue to show our guests how most Vietnamese actually live, far removed from tourist hot spots which dot the country.
Beautiful natural surroundings notwithstanding, it's not the surroundings nor the brick and mortar of villages which make up communities, it's the people.
At Mekong rustic, it is important to us that you feel welcomed and included. We do this by offering true Mekong Vietnamese hospitality. This is necessary if we wish to learn as much from you as we hope you learn from us.
We also offer 2 home stay choices containing 7 rooms with standard facilities. Our home stays represent a true slice of traditional life of the Mekong people, albeit a rapidly vanishing traditional life. It was built to highlight the culture, aesthetics and historical realities of the area's past which are in stark contrast to the rapidly changing present. Mr Hai and Uncle Ut are warm and welcoming home stay hosts and offer simple yet comfortable living accommodation within their families. You will have opportunities to experience life here with touching, friendly local people and a wealth of activities both inside (family works, cooking and exchange culture) and outside (gardening, farming and cycling around).
