Trying the homestay in the Mekong Delta is properly memorable and enjoyable. You may have the chances to share hardship and joys with your local hosts. In Mekong Delta region, the homestays as well as what are so called the homestays are still mushrooming, especially in Vinh Long, Ben Tre, and Can Tho. Some of them may be very spacious, beautifully built in traditional style of Vietnam while others may be very basic, and built on the wooden stilts.

A big advantage of the Mekong Delta homestay traveling is that you will have the opportunity to explore the Mekong Delta deeply, as well as enjoy the wonderful life of the local people. You can walk on dirt paths and gravel tracks, ride the oxen cart, row the sampan in order to visit the rural villages, try to catch fishes in ponds by hands, or prepare a common meal of Mekong Delta with caramelized pork, sour soup, spring rolls and grilled gourami fishes.
