The Mekong River, the longest river in Indochina, is divided into nine tributaries within Vietnam and has spawned the vast Mekong Delta. The Mekong Delta is often referred as the 'rice bowl' and the 'garden of heaven', because of its rich soil which is ideal for growing fruit, vegetables and flowers. However, periodic floods have forced the local people to adapt their way of life to the vagaries of the delta and this tour allows you to experience their precariously balanced 'life on the water'.

The Mekong Delta is often referred as the 'rice bowl' and the 'garden of heaven', because of its rich soil which is ideal for growing fruit, vegetables and flowers. However, periodic floods have forced the local people to adapt their way of life to the vagaries of the delta and this tour allows you to experience their precariously balanced 'life on the water'. Visiting their floating houses, floating schools and floating markets, you will be amazed by their wet rice civilization. Our team will provide you with a wealth of fascinating information about the region as we sail downstream through the canals of the Mekong River. Join the lively floating market, visit luxuriant orchards, enjoy tropical fruits in the gardens where they are grown, sample delicious local dishes and spend the night on board in this unique setting.

In fact, the Mekong Delta is one of the most beautiful of all Vietnam's landscapes. Now you can discover the region for yourself in a more profound way than was previously possible. Our special cruise not only takes you deep into the delta but also enables you to experience local life in all its many facets. Immerse yourself in the rich culture of the Mekong Delta and enjoy your overnight stay on board our luxurious boat with every home comfort at your fingertips.

=== WELCOME TO HANOI OLD QUARTER HOMESTAY & AUTHENTIC HANOI HOMESTAY===

Dear all,

My name is Luan, I have worked for 10 years as local guide, and I travelled in many places in Vietnam. My biggest dream is to travel all over the world and be able to share my great knowledge about Vietnam. With my family, we decided to support each other and open HANOI OLD QUARTER HOMESTAY & AUTHENTIC HANOI HOMESTAY.

My main objectives were to include what the travelers want the most which is experiencing the authentic Vietnamese life and exploring local activities. Today, I consider that the authentic Vietnamese life has become quite rare. Whenever or wherever you travel you all want discover new customs and learn more about a culture. So this inspired me to the host and share my home with the travelers from all over the world.

=== MY FAMILY ===

My Homestay were opened as the interfering cultural place to connect friends with new friends. The homestay couldn’t be more authentic without my family, all raised and born in Hanoi. As a longstanding Vietnamese tradition, my family includes three generations:

Me and my wife Nguyen Nhu Quynh (Name of the flower which only hatch in midnight of the Lunar New Year) – She works as the official staff. She also can speak Chinese because she lived in Shanghai for 3 years. We have a 4-year-old son together, his name is Do Truong An (Peaceful forever).

Nguyen Do Khai – My younger brother – a high school student. He helps me to take care the guests in evening and do like a safeguard for our homestay. So very SAFE at my homestay.

Nguyen Viet Thuy – My father – He is a retired cook. He can help you with the Traditional Vietnamese Food with an authentic taste. If you want to learn how to cook some tasty Vietnamese dishes or enjoy a family dinner, feel free to inform me in advance then we can prepare the dinner for you.

Finally, my mother Do Ngoc Lan also the Housekeeping Executive – She has been working in three star and four-star hotel for more than 15 years. So you can feel the cleanness, comfort and relaxation at my home.

=== ACCOMODATION ==
My home is located in the Old quarter, the heart of Hanoi, surrounded by good restaurants and shops, in green, quiet streets within walking distance of Hoan Kiem Lake which is the perfect environment to enjoy your holidays.
