The homestay is located in fruits garden and has each elegantly designed with the authentic and local rustic architecture rooms in Tan Phong island, Cai Lay, Tien Giang next to Cai Be floating Market.

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 percent 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 this homestay’s goal to set a benchmark in ecotourism here that can be replicated throughout the region. At Mekong Rustic Homestay,  guests will have the opportunity to see 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.

Mekong Rustic also offers 2 homestay choices containing 7 rooms with standard facilities. These 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 homestay 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).
